Alex Fransen, Fransen Group
For Alex Fransen, providing impeccable service in landscaping has been a lifelong vocation, and he has a drive for it that is entirely unparalleled. If you could turn back the clock 21 years, you would find him at 13 years old, assisting his older brother in maintaining golf courses. The goal wasn’t that of the typical teen, planning trips to the mall or the the movies. Rather, Alex was raising money for his first lawn mower. He honed his skills at the country clubs, developing his craftsmanship to raise enough to purchase a commercial mower. He would get up early, long before his first class at Western Kentucky University (Where he studied turf and horticulture), just so he could do landscaping work. He would then turn around and get right back to it after class.
These days, Alex is the president of the Fransen Group & Derby City Pools, leading a team of hard working experts dedicated to offering superior quality and craftsmanship in all aspects of landscaping. This includes lawn care, outdoor living construction, hardscaping (that’s utilizing elements of stone- think pathways, patios, firepits, retaining walls, and even fountains), irrigation, fences, pools, and even dealing with snow and ice. When asked what drives him, Alex says it all:
“Having my clients hug me at the end of the day with tears in their eyes, as a dream of theirs has come true... that’s what makes this business so rewarding, and that’s why I have fallen in love with it over the last 20 years.”
