Yard Groomers is operated by Toowoomba Region locals, husband and wife team Leon and Heather Boughton. Leon and Heather have built Yard Groomers D.N.A on nothing less than the following principles: quality, honesty, security and prompt service.
Both Leon and Heather are passionate about supplying only the best service to their clients and expect nothing less from their staff. Therefore they spend the time to make sure their staff are properly trained, the equipment is regularly maintained, and that they are on the cutting edge when it comes to knowledge about yard care and maintenance.
Yard Groomers specialises in servicing almost everything you may require to keep your yard perfect, from the simple lawn mow through to a complete lawn and garden makeover. Whatever your yard needs are, feel free to give us a call. If it’s not one of our listed services, we may still be able to do it for you, from designing a new garden to making that perfect pathway.
Leon is a true blue Queenslander, family man, chicken lover and passionate gardener originally from Mackey. As well as being a lifelong gardener, Leon has enjoyed careers in dairy farming, free range egg production, and construction where he is a qualified builder.
Leon’s career path has made him one of the most well rounded gardeners around. Leon started gardening early, in fact his parents would say that once he could walk you would find him in one of two places, the garden or with the chickens.
As a Yard Groomer Leon brings years of experience to the team in regards to general gardening, lawn care, fertilising, weed control and garden pest management through knowledge gained in his own garden, the agricultural industry and a continued love of study.
Heather is originally from California USA where she grew up gardening with her family. She is naturally artistically gifted and has graduated with both fine art and applied art degrees. Heather is a graphic designer, artist and avid gardener with experience in landscape design. Her artistic ability and knowledge of plants combine to create beautiful gardens and landscapes.
Heather was working in Sacramento for a few years as a graphic designer when she met Leon. After their marriage, Heather made Australia her home. Now, Heather is the mum of little Talitha, Yard Groomers’ newest office staff member.
As the office manager, Heather is dedicated to our customers and making sure that Yard Groomers is always on time to deliver the very best. She also runs the blog on our Yard Groomers website where she shares her knowledge of lawn and garden care.
