Our History

One Truck, One Vision

Starting from humble beginnings in Niagara Falls with “one truck, one vision”, original owner and operator of YardMasters, Michael (Mike) Watson wanted more for the community he grew up in.

Mike, a true green-thumb knew that he had the skills and abilities to help beautify the city in which he loved. Starting with the “one truck, one vision” model, Michael began small by cutting lawns and offering trim services before branching into home and commercial landscaping design in 2010.

Since then, the YardMasters team are proud to served thousands of residents of Niagara Falls, along with hotels, commercial complexes and more!

Fast-forward to the year 2014, Mike and his vision for Niagara Falls has once again evolved into a new partnership with fellow Niagara Falls resident and premium contractor Brad Murray. The simple “one truck, one vision” direction of YardMasters has now flourished into a multi-faceted landscaping/ construction team that is proud to employ over 25 individuals with backgrounds in many disciplines ranging from landscape design, stonemasonry, carpentry, and more!

Together, Mike and Brad are once again expanding and reaching out. YardMasters is now recognized throughout the Niagara Region, and well into communities as far as Hamilton. The simple “one truck, one vision” commitment to customer service and providing expert workmanship is the root of all things YardMasters.
