In 1998 Nate went on to join Burl Oaks Golf Club in Minnetrista, MN to become an Assistant Golf Course Superintendent. During his tenure Nate assisted in a full scale 9 hole renovation including the installation of over 700 irrigation heads. Nate also had the unique opportunity to build 7 new golf greens, over 35 bunkers, 40 Tee boxes, and 7 new fairways all from seed. After the renovation was complete, Nate moved on to a bigger challenge. He took a supervisory role of building a brand new 18 hole golf course from seed in Pine City, MN.

In 2001, after the completion of the 18 hole golf course in Pine City, Nate became the assistant superintendent of Minnesota Valley Country Club in Bloomington, MN. After several previous years of building golf courses, Nate took on a more management role at Minnesota Valley.

During his tenure at Minnesota Valley, Nate began doing lawn care for members and employees outside of work. As the demand increased from more people by word of mouth, he had to begin purchasing equipment to help compensate the demand. It was soon after that Nate formed The Greener Blade LLC in 2003.
