Our Story

We are loving every minute of our journey!

John and Darlene McIntosh

An Idea Is Born

In 2005, John and Darlene McIntosh purchased the Enviro Masters Lawn Care Huron-Bruce franchise and operated it, first on a part time basis with 179 customers. The following year John quit his full time job to concentrate on his customer base full time. The company has seen steady growth for the last 14 years. New services have been added including Pest and Rodent Control, Emerald Ash Borer Treatments, Vegetation Services and Garden Maintenance. Since 2015, Darlene has worked full time in the office and in 2019, there will be 7 full time seasonal exterminators and technicians. Our customer list has grown to 1000+ lawn care and pest control customers and 500+ pest only customers.
