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 16 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 2021, there will be 10 full time seasonal exterminators and technicians. Our customer list has grown to 1200+ lawn care and pest control customers and 600+ pest only customers.
