Wendy Owens, Founder of backyardhelpers.com

My name is Wendy Owens, and I was born to relax in my backyard. Growing up, my parents had a gorgeous backyard with a huge inground swimming pool. I was taught early in life that hanging out in the backyard is a great way to relax and unwind from an otherwise busy and hectic day.

My parents hired a gardener and a pool cleaning service.  After getting married, my husband and I had a smaller yard with an above ground pool.  With us having a smaller yard, we did not hire a gardener or pool cleaning service, we did all the maintenance ourselves.

Besides saving a lot of money, we began to really enjoy doing the work ourselves.  Now that we have a much bigger yard and an inground swimming pool, we have decided to maintain our own back yard.

We have raised two beautiful daughters and a very handsome son, if I do say so myself. 😊 They too, were all raised for the love of the back yard lifestyle, hanging out, relaxing, barbequing, swimming and just enjoying life. We have also shown them what good hard work can do to maintain the back yard.

Over the years, my husband and I have learned a lot of time saving hacks on how to clean pools and the general maintenance of our garden and yard.  I built this website BECAUSE of that love of our back yard, and to give you tips and tricks for cleaning a swimming pool in a time efficient manner. Please let me know if you have any questions.
