About Us

Our lawn care legacy has been years in the making.

From a very early age, I was destined for a career in professional lawn care. I grew up on an organic farm in Schomberg, Ontario, and by the age of 16, I had secured a lawn care summer job at Simonis Landscaping in King City.

After university, I became a lawn care technician at Barefoot Grass Lawn Service in Toronto, where I was promoted to tree/shrub care manager and then area manager—all within two years. After several months, I began to notice that long work hours and sub-par pay was leading to burnt out staff and unhappy customers. It was at this point that I decided to start my own company.  With my knowledge, experience, and a dream of providing the highest quality lawn care possible, I left Barefoot Grass and founded LawnMart, Inc. in 1996.

Many years later my youngest son Nyle joined the team and with the help of my amazing staff, LawnMart continues its original mission of providing the best Lawn Care service possible to thousands of clients in the Greater Toronto Area.  As a government-licensed and fully insured contractor, as well as a six-time recipient of the Readers Choice Award, LawnMart, Inc. is a company you can trust to take exceptionally good care of your property with our unrivaled, professional services.

What do people say?

We have been with Lawn Mart for over 10 years and they have brought our lawn back from weeds to nice green grass. We are so happy with their service. Never regret for a moment enlisting their services and have recommended them to friends.

I’ve been a LawnMart customer for almost 5 years. My lawn looks great and definitely much better than it used to when I used to take care of it on my own. They’re lovely people who take pride in what they do and have always been more than patient with me when I’ve called and asked questions. I would definitely recommend!

The best our lawn has ever been is when LawnMart serviced it. The staff is friendly, understanding and patient. They know your name and you are more than “just a customer”. Great business to be associated with!

Lyn K.

I own my own property management company and use Lawn Mart for places I take care of. Great service all the way through the company. From the workers to the owner. They are all awesome to deal with. Always have great results at my clients properties when it comes to helping the lawns look “golf course” ready.

I am very happy with the lawn care I get on a regular basis. Everything always looks great and they are accessible to fit my schedule. It was difficult to find dependable lawn care service in town, so it’s fantastic that I don’t need to keep looking. Thanks guys
