Meet your Coweta-Fayette, GA Weed Man team of lawn specialists who are professionally trained to manage all of your lawn care needs. We're happy to introduce ourselves!


Richard & vicki Thompson | Owner & vice president

franchise owner

Richard is a long-time resident of Coweta County, and has always had an interest in lawn care, as well as a desire to own his own business. In 2002, an early retirement from Xerox Corporation allowed him the opportunity to bring those two goals into one dream. That year he purchased his first Weed Man franchise with the goal of providing customers with personal service and a product they could trust. Over twenty years later, Weed Man has extended its area to cover not only Coweta and Fayette, but Douglas, Carroll, South Fulton, Spalding, Troup, Meriwether, Pike, Heard, and Clayton counties. We are proud to say he has maintained his mission and has one of the best reputations in the industry in our area.

Vicki worked as an executive assistant for SunTrust bank and spent many evenings and weekends helping Richard with everything from sales to payroll in the company’s early years. She has since been able to retire from the bank and resume an active role at Weed Man again helping with Accounts Receivables and improving employee retention with her famous pound cakes!

Richard is still a very “hands on” owner and he and Vicki both still take an active role in the business. When not working, they enjoy attending Georgia Tech football games, spending time at their lake house, and enjoying their four children, eight grandchildren, and great-granddaughter.
