Yaardvark was started in the summer of 2015 when founder Will Armstrong, after three years of independent landscaping, found it challenging to find local “yard work” jobs in his area.
After three years of independent landscaping, Will found it challenging to find local "yard work" jobs in his area.
As a high school student, he also found it a struggle to find well paying jobs on a flexible schedule. As a result,
he created Yaardvark as a way to match local students to local homeowners who need some help around the yard.
Within the first few months of operation, Yaardvark appeared on WKYC, WOIO, and in multiple landscaping articles. Within the first year of operation, Yaardvark successfully matched 50 jobs solely in Kirtland and Gates Mills, Ohio.
In 2017, massive improvements were made to the website after the addition of our development team. Yaardvark is on a mission to innovate and revitalize the landscaping industry. If you haven't already, we encourage you to join the community and give it a try!
