Ben Brockmeyer

Ben is a Hillside original! He started with the company 21 years ago when Hillside was housed in a brown bank barn in Darlington. He owned a lawn mowing service, but wanted the support of a larger company. He now oversees and executes all our aeration and over seeding, commercial specialty applications, storm water management, municipality work, and invasive species eradication. Also he’s inspecting our fleet, responsible for selecting and maintaining Hillside trucks and vehicles, ensuring safety and efficiency.

Fun Facts

Ben has enjoyed fishing and kayaking since childhood. These two hobbies lead him to Arrowhead Hunting. Native American tribes such as the Susquehannock, Naticoke, Powhatan, Lenape, and Shawnee flourished in Maryland. He’s walked through the farms in Aberdeen and the waterways of Harford and Cecil Counties in search of arrowheads, game stones, axe heads, and gorgets – Native American jewelry.
