Meet the Team


I'm Dwight Pilgrim I have been involved in the Green Industry almost since birth. One grandfather was a foreman at T.V.A. producing fertilizer, the other was the Colbert County Extension Agent. You could say that my blood runs green! At the age of 8, pushing a lawnmower, playing baseball and football were my big three activities. In 1995, we began a maintenance company (Green Thumb) which performed full maintenance on over 100 accounts around the Shoals area. Our accounts included the Marriott Conference Center and most all banking institutions. Our properties won over 50 beautification awards! Beginning in 2001, we expanded to include fertilization and weed control through our Scotts LawnService franchise. This quickly became our primary focus. We were tremendously blessed with great employees and wonderful customers.

Unfortunately, due to a contract obligation as a franchisee, we were required to sell our company to TruGreen in association with the corporate consolidation between those two companies. At the end of 2016, the merger was complete and Scotts LawnService ended its run. I did stay with TruGreen for one year after the merger to try and help my employees and my customers work through the new ideas and philosophy. At the end of 2017, I left TruGreen because our ideas on service were too far apart.

Taking somewhat of a sabbatical in 2018 allowed me to spend time with my wife and kids along with the opportunity to find the absolute best products and program for a more root based approach.

So in 2019, we were ready to venture out again into lawn care. We started with the name Grass Life, as we wanted to get back to the roots of what we started so many years ago. We have been so blessed to reconnect with some of our old technicians (they couldn’t take TruGreen either) as well as many members of our previous lawn family. Over the past 24 months we have continued to look for new products and better ways to improve lawns through root development. It is key to continue to work and stay ahead of our ever changing environment. I have been so impressed with our biological partner, BioGreen, and the results of our program that we are evolving into GrassLife! I have lived the GrassLife for over 30 years and think this name fits great! It is who I am and what I do! Because…

Grass Roots gives GrassLife!!


Hi! I am Shea Pilgrim, the other half of GrassLife! Dwight and I have been married for over 20 years and have three beautiful children! When we first met, Dwight owned a lawn maintenance company, Green Thumb, and I was finishing my degree in business administration while working in medical insurance billing. I knew NOTHING about the green industry! That changed pretty quickly!

Now, I am the GrassLife Administrator (I guess that business administration degree came in handy after all) and I am your go to girl for all things office related. Feel free to give me a call should you have any questions about your GrassLife account!


Hello, my name is Deanthonie Summerhill. I have known Dwight for 20 years, he and my father have always been close. I am a graduate of the University of Tennessee and am now working towards my law degree. Dwight has been great in helping me towards that goal. Until then, I’m living the Grass Life!


Hello, my name is Tyler Watts. I began in lawn care seven years ago with Dwight at Scotts LawnService and then continued with TruGreen after the merger/buy out. The two companies were not the same. I really needed to get back to a company that wanted to do the right thing and when Dwight called, I couldn’t wait! We are now Grass Life and we want it to be the best lawn service ever!!

My name is Zachary Eli Fisher, I like to go by Eli.  I've been in the lawn care business for 6 years.  I worked at Scott's, then at Trugreen during the merger of the two companies.  I am 33 years old, I am married, and have two children, Ady Grace and Jaxon.  I am also accompanied by my three fur babies; Jazzy, Bash, and Lilah.  I like to stay active when I'm outside of work, rather it be family events, disc golf, working out, or partaking in Jui Jitsui.  I take great pride in making lawns look spectacular and I would like to thank you for allowing me the opportunity of making your lawn perfect
