Post Shields, Inc. is a family owned and operated company. Our goal is to solve the everyday problem lawn care and property maintenance can do to wooden posts.
We came up with the concept for Post Shields by noticing the posts in our neighborhood were being destroyed by grass trimmers and yard maintenance. The only options to fix the damaged posts were to repaint the posts frequently, replace the posts too soon or spend thousands of dollars to switch to other composite fencing options. We knew we had to come up with an easier and less expensive way.
Post Shields, shield the base of posts such as mailboxes, fences, etc. They are four individual shields that slide together to cover and protect existing or new posts from string trimmers and other lawn care equipment. Installs in seconds with no tools and their visually pleasing design adds a luxurious and finished look while saving time and money on unneeded maintenance.
Post Shields, Inc. is comprised of the sister/brother team of Jennifer and Kane Carmody. Jennifer lives in Janesville, WI with her dog and loves reading, writing and hanging out with her friends and family.
Kane is married with two young girls and also lives in Janesville, WI. His interests include playing music, wood working projects, golf and softball.
Scott is the father of Jennifer and Kane. He was the start of the journey with discussions about the simple problem of post damage. Scott helped Jennifer and Kane engineer/design the first prototype. He was always welcomed looking over the shoulder of his children as a father would with such an endeavor. His wife, Denise, (Mom and Grandma) helps by watching the grand kids for business trips and is there whenever needed. They moved to Palm Bay, FL. in 2010. They are very excited to see where Jennifer and Kane will take Post Shields in the future.
