The Story Behind Yard Smart

Yard Smart is a tale of two high school friends who started their own lawn mowing company to help make some extra cash. What was once an after school hobby has turned into a 7 years business of delivering excellent customer service in lawn care and snow removal.

Company History

Humble Beginnings

It’s been over 40 years since Matt Higgons started his first lawn mowing gig with his closest friend in high school. He used that money to pay for a business degree at St. Lawrence College in Kingston, Ontario and had big dreams of starting his own company. He never realized that the very business he would dedicate his life to, was the same one that helped him pay for that education.

Fast forward to today, and we’ve been lucky enough to have served hundreds of customers all over Southern Ontario, and we’ve expanded our services to include snow removal, insect control and artificial grass.

We take so much pride in what we do and smile every time we’ve helped improve the appearance of your property. With a team of experts, we’re ready to take on any job you need done around your lawn. Call for your no-obligation quote today.

Nothing is more satisfying than a customer who loves the work we do and tells their friends.

“I would say that I’m the glue that holds this company together. Some say that I’m the maternal type, but I just like to keep everyone on track, happy and fed.”

“Over the years Yard Smart has really come to feel like home. I’ve always liked working with my hands and can’t remember the last time I didn’t have dirt under my nails!”
