Our Story

First VanGreen Touch Irrigation, LLC is a family owned local company serving Central Ohio and Surrounding Areas. Owner, Aric Knepp, began in the irrigation business when he was 18 years old. He spent 9 years perfecting the trade in Bexley, OH as an irrigation mensch. He trained and learned the ins and outs of irrigation from some of the top irrigation companies
in the area. In 2005, he decided it was time to venture out on his own and began Green Touch Irrigation (GTI). He started with a van and a vision working long and hard to develop what has become a successful, highly recommended irrigation company in all of Central Ohio.


Aric’s areas of expertise include sales and troubleshooting the trickiest of irrigation issues. He prides himself in the knowledge he has obtained over the years and enjoys being able to give our customers high quality irrigation services backed by a 5 Star Guarantee. He has worked really hard to build a company that has a reputation for exceeding customer expectations and an unparalleled quality of work. Aric is thorough and takes his time to ensure our customers are 100% satisfied.


Aric and JessieAric’s wife, Jessie, began helping behind the scenes with GTI in 2010 while still working her full time job in the social work field. As the company (and our family) grew, it was decided that it was time for Jessie to switch gears to joining GTI full time in 2014. Jessie takes care of all of the scheduling, billing, payroll, and customer service needs of the company. She enjoys being able to build an organized, customer-friendly company that takes your needs seriously!



Our family includes Jack (age 10), Alec (age 8), and Madison (age 4) and our newest addition Thomas (age 1). Jack loves playing baseball, telling jokes, and being a big brother. Alec is spunky and creative and loves exploring outside. Madison adores her big brothers, frequently chasing them and trying to do whatever she can to keep up with them! They are why we do what we do. We have worked really hard to create a successful family business so that we can provide our kids with a quality and happy life. Our hope is to be able to pass the company on to them as they get older and can continue to serve our customers and their families for years to come.



We have an A+ Rating with the BBB and have also received awards from Angie’s List and RainBird for providing quality customer service. We frequently participate in local fundraisers, specifically through local schools and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to promote a “green” lifestyle. 


Thank you for your support and allowing us to do what we love!


Aric and Jessie Knepp
