The Yard Guy began as a leap of faith for us back in 1996. We met while we were both serving in the US Air Force, stationed in the Philippines. We married, started a family and with Barry having been born and raised here, we new there was no better place to raise a family than on the Eastern Shore. Barry grew up working on the head boats in Ocean City but the seasonal nature of that business made it difficult to make ends meet. So we took the leap into the lawn care business. We started out very small with a few used mowers and an old truck and built the business to just over 60 customers that first year. We still service some of those customers today. We learned pretty quickly that we didn't know a lot about running a business but God was looking out for us. He brought a few great mentors into our lives to keep us on track. We are forever grateful for there guidance and advice over the years.
Fast forward to today and we have grown to three full time mowing crews and our daughter Brittany has joined the family business. Our Ocean Pines crew chief Brian Shockley joined the team in 1999. Patrick Tune has been on board for 3 years each. They are a great group of guys who have proven to be honest, dependable and hard working. We couldn't ask for more.
We are a Christian owned, family business and are thankful for the opportunity and to serve our family, friends and our community.
