About Us

Lawn Doctor of Durango-Farmington (Colorado/New Mexico) is owned and operated by James and Courtney Murch. As the first national brand lawn care company in the area, they have the advantage of a local presence backed by 50 years of Lawn Doctor experience and expertise.

James and Courtney originally came from the Northwest suburbs of Chicago. They decided to move to Durango because they enjoy the outdoor lifestyle, which they share with their three dogs. “The Durango-Farmington area is truly unique,” says Courtney. “It has everything from high, rocky mountains to dry desert landscapes. There is an eclectic mix of people, a very strong sense of community, and even though the towns are not technically small anymore, there is still that small town feel.”

“Having a beautiful lawn shows that you care and take pride in your property, and I believe it also demonstrates respect for yourself and your neighbors and community,” James added. “It’s a pleasure to go to work every day, and help members of the community who feel the same way.”
