We created Yard and Garage a couple of years ago to answer your questions about everything to do with maintaining a lawn and caring for your tools. Our writes come from a large background of experience in taking care of property. Collectively, we have lived on farms, in apartments and suburban homes. Our perspectives mirror that of our audience. The guides and articles we write are all honest accounts of our experiences.
Due to our varied background, the staff at Yard and Garage believe we can help readers when it comes to maintaining a home. Our guides on the best tools, methods of caring for a lawn, and creating livable outdoors paces are what we truly believe. The site is supported by affiliate sales, but the prospect of earning a commission does not lead us to offer bad advice. Our philosophy is to provide useful and worthwhile advice, because we believe it is truly what the customer (you, the reader) deserves.
As the name suggests, Yard and Garage is focused on the homeowner’s outdoor needs. How-to guides and product reviews are our bread and butter. The topics you will see here cover the following:
- Lawn Care
- Gardening Advice
- Tools and Gear
- Outdoor Living
- Gift Guides
- Product Reviews
- Garage Organization
- Maintaining Your Garage
As stated earlier, our writing and editorial team come from a wide background of experiences and perspectives.
Born in the midwest and raised in north Georgia, Philip has moved a total of 9 times in his adult life. Being constantly on the go, Philip has perfected the art of low maintenance for his lawn and gardens.
In addition to reviewing all content for the website, Philip writes for the Lawn Care and Tools categories. He has one young son and his family enjoy spending time outdoors in their manicured backyard.
Van also hails from the midwest and moved to the deep south after college. He grew up on a farm miles from town where fixing broken machinery and tools was a necessity. While not working at his full time job as a riverboat Captain, Van enjoys tinkering with vintage cars in his 2400sq foot garage.
Van writes about tools and reviews products, drawing from his lifetime experience of using and maintaining a vast collection of tools and hardware. Connect with Van on LinkedIn.
Lisa is married to Philip and shares his love of the outdoors. While he is focused on the big picture of lawn care, Lisa cares for her family’s collection of indoor and outdoor plants.
She has an undergraduate degree in journalism and has a passion for environmental causes. Lisa writes for our Gardening category and also comes up with our Gift Guides.
Matthew lives in Alabama with his wife, two children and one dog.
Maintaining a 1/2 acre suburban yard has prepared him for occasionally writing in our lawn care section. Matthew handles all technical details with the website and integrations with other platforms. Connect with Matthew on LinkedIn.
