About Us


We know the pain that most of our prospective clients are dealing with – unanswered calls, someone who doesn’t speak English, or problems with billing.  At Top Choice Lawn Care, we’re the opposite.  You can reach us via telephone, by email, via online chat, or fill out our free estimate form.  You decide, we’d love to talk to you about your yard.

The Top Choice Team


Nolan - General Manager, Owner

Nolan was born and raised in Austin. The son of a landscape entrepreneur, he has been around the business since he can remember. Upon graduating high school, Nolan attended Texas A&M university where he graduated with a finance degree and spent many Saturdays disappointed by the football team.

In 2012, Nolan joined the Marine Corps as a combat engineer officer and moved to Virginia. Over four years, he and his wife – Joanie – lived on both coasts, and he served one tour in Iraq, and the other in Oman. In 2016, their family grew with the birth of a delightful daughter – Ellie Ray.

Upon completing his service, Nolan returned to Austin and joined Top Choice. He enjoys a good book, a hard workout, a close game, and his daughter’s laugh.


Golden - Operations Manager, Owner

Golden has extensive background in sales and customer service.  He knows how to treat and keep customers happy. He is most often found out in the field reviewing our performance and making certain customers get what they pay for.  Golden has his master degree from Brigham Young University. He moved to Austin because his wife is a Texan. They have 3 beautiful daughters, and 1 crazy little boy. He also loves his Vizsla, Czar.


Tom - Service Manager

Tom, as our Service Manager, will be someone you get to know well. He is tremendous with our customers. About as outgoing and personal a person can be. One of those people who helps others too much. He was born and raised in Fresno, California, but has lived Texas for 23 years. He certainly considers himself a Texan (and talks like one, too!). He studied industrial technology at Fresno State University. He has one son, plays in a band, and enjoys his involvement with his church. This is his second time at Top Choice – after a year hiatus, we convinced him to come back to us. We’re very glad he did!


Andrew - Estimating Manager

Andrew is the creative and estimating genius of Top Choice.  He has more than a decade in maintenance and landscape design and installation.  Around the office, we call him the plant nerd or professor.  Definitely a guy you want reviewing the needs of your yard, and giving you ideas on how to make it better.  Andrew has a degree in business management, a wonderful wife, and family throughout Texas.


Adriana - Customer Service

Adriana is our office veteran.  Kind as can be on the phone – you’ll appreciate her willingness to help you.  She is a native Texan and has been in Austin a long time.  She is married (13 years) and has 3 beautiful kiddos.  She enjoys spending time with her family, watching movies (especially Star Wars!), taking and watching her oldest play fast-pitch softball, running and other fitness activities.  She is a Halloween expert – her family has had some outstanding Halloween costumes over the years.  She’s an awesome person.  You’ll appreciate her like we do.

Her name is pronounced Adri-ah-na.  If you have trouble remembering, she won’t be offended – Tom still messes it up!


Kristie - Customer Service

Kristie hails from a small town in Texas.  She is wonderful to our customers and everyone she interacts with.  She has a master degree from Baylor, has two wonderful children, and loves to spend time with her family and friends.  She is also a master cake maker.


Rachel - Customer Service

Rachel is the newest member of our team.  She is a talker.  She loves to chit chat.  She is almost too concerned about the welfare of others.  You’ll love to get her on the phone because she’ll go over the top to help you.  She hails from Kansas City and Virginia Beach – but Texas is her home.  She loves piña coladas, getting caught in the rain, and keeps her mind and body at ease as a frequent participant of yoga.  She’s crafty, loves to cook (we’re hoping she’ll make us some wonderful Italian dishes!), workout, and laugh!  She has two wonderful kids – three if you count her husband.  In her spare time, she enjoys helping those in need and helping in a few community churches in the area.  We’re so glad to have her at Top Choice!


Crystal - Bookkeeper

Crystal is our bookkeeper. While she generally deals with our corporate and vendor relationships, if you call our office, you’ll end up talking to her at some point. A friendly person by nature, she’s not afraid of a good laugh and conversation. While not paying for materials and supplies, she enjoys spending time with her 4 children, crazy husband, and beautiful puppy.
