Hi, I'm Gordon, the owner of BackyardGadget. Working around the house has always been a big part of my life. I've created this site to share my experience, and to help people choose the right tools for the job. Thank you for stopping by!

I’m currently 35 years old, living in South Carolina with my wife and two children. I’m working as a store manager for a big home improvement retailer, which gives me plenty of opportunities to test a wide range of products.

Needless to say, this made me the go-to person for yard care advice among family and friends alike. Not like I mind, as I’ve been working around the house ever since I was a kid. It has always been a part of my life, even more so after I got married and we finally bought our own place.

But I can get overwhelmed sometimes – answering the same old questions again and again can be really tiresome, especially after a long day of work followed by household chores and playing with my kids.

And so, BackyardGadget was born! My aim here is to answer some of the questions I commonly get, and to help people buy the tools that best suit their needs.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me and I’ll do my best to help you.

Thank you for visiting my site, I hope you enjoy your stay!
