I’ve been a home owner ever since the Great Recession of 2008 but I haven’t really owned a yard that I truly cared for since 2017.
At that time my family and I moved into our current home which lacked a backyard space. We and hired a local landscaping company to build us a two-tiered retaining wall built from 60-tons of large boulders. The landscaper then had to bring in multiple dump truck loads of fill-dirt just to make us a proper (flat) back yard from scratch.
In the summer of 2017, as I wrote the huge check to the landscaper for his services, I realized that I had just spent an enormous sum of money just to have a backyard that could actually be enjoyed.
I decided that we, as a family, had better put that yard to good use, and that I had better take good care of it so as to not feel like we had just wasted our money installing the thing.
Since late in the year 2017 I have learned a ton about DIY lawncare. As a profession I build websites so it seemed fitting at the time to start a lawncare website as an educational outlet for myself and for others. It was to be an outlet for others to learn about tending to the yard and garden just as I was doing on the fly.
Fast forward to today. I now manage TurfMechanic.com as well as the Turf Mechanic YouTube channel full time. It is my primary profession. Although I do own other internet based businesses and I do “moonlight” as a semi-professional bowler, my passion lies in outside in the lawn. I’d be out there all day every day if I could.
Please, as you read through this website I hope you’ll take the time to enjoy the content, learn a bit of something from it, and get to know me just a bit. And, if you need to get a hold of me for any reason head over to my YouTube channel and shoot me a message.
I can also be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org if that’s more your style. Thanks for visiting!
