Rodney and Denise Steidinger were
married in Illinois in 2000. Having both been raised on farms, each
knew the meaning of hard
work and the challenges of growing strong crops. In 2006, Rodney
and Denise thought they would head west to sunny Arizona. Rodney
decided to work what he knew best; growing plants. He worked
in the landscaping trade for another company and Denise took care
the bookkeeping and marketing.
In early 2008, the economy suddenly
declined and the owner of the company where Rodney worked suddenly
left the state, leaving Rodney without a job and a young
family to raise. They prayed for wisdom on what to do next and decided to start
their own business. Rodney and Denise had a hard time coming up with a name.
One of Rodney's good friends, Jacob, with Rock-N-Earth Landscaping made the suggestion
to name it TKHaley after their family-owned business. T is for Trinity, K for
Kiley and the little Haley stole the show with the rest.
When TKHaley Yard Care
was founded in 2009, the inspiration for our business name came
from our three daughters. After five years of being involved
community, we saw a major need to help less-fortunate kids. In March 2013, we,
Rodney and Denise, became licensed foster parents. In April of 2013, a little
three year old girl named Ella came into our home. The goal of the State was
for her to be reunited with her biological father. Throughout the process his
parental rights were severed. The State asked us if we would be interested in
keeping her. We prayed about adopting her and thought, "what would be desire
if we were in Ella's situation?" In August of 2014 Ella officially became
part of our forever family. Many times over the past year Ella has asked if we
could change the name of the business to TK Ella. We tried to figure out a way
to include Ella in our name but had a hard time. After much thought, we decided
not to name it after the kids as we had before. We have no idea what the future
holds and if someone else like Ella came into our life it would be hard not to
Our goal is to brand our new company name in a way that won't be
easily forgotten. TKHaley Yard Care became ZebraScapes LLC on January
1st, 2015. Our
goal is to stand apart from other companies through our quality and integrity.
One very happy family. One very happy business.
