Performance Lawn and Power

Tom Mette started Performance Lawn and Power in 1987 after many years of doing repairs and craftsman work. Just like many new businesses, it was tough starting out. However, Tom’s skills and willingness to take risks, along with some wise business guidance, things really began taking off for Performance Lawn and Power.

Performance Lawn and Power is a Cub Cabet and Husqvarna dealer. They sell and service lawn products, honor manufacturer warranties and keep a large supply of replacement parts in stock. In addition, they receive and stock replacement parts for popular brand-named equipment like Craftsman. Lawn mower sales have been the biggest part of their business, especially with the variety of types of mowers available – from zero turn mowers to lawn tractors.

Another growing part of the business includes battery-powered units and other outdoor equipment needs such as blowers, tillers, chainsaws, pressure washers, generators and more.Performance Lawn and Power serves customers from Teutopolis, Effingham, Newton, Olney, Louisville, Altamont, St. Elmo and more.
