Let your backyard be a sanctuary.

Is there anything more wonderful than getting home from work and going straight into your backyard for an evening of relaxing? Well, at least I don’t think so! Hi there, my name is Kenneth and I am certified backyard-obsessed! OK...maybe that’s a bit of a stretch. I am backyard-focused.

The joy that being in the backyard brings me is unmatched by anything else, and I know so many other people agree with me. Whether you find your backyard solace in cooking outdoors on your grill, maintaining your plants and veggies, keeping chickens and other animals, or simply relaxing in your beautifully decorated gardens, just know that you are not the only one! 

That is where the idea of Backyard Certified came from. I realized I couldn’t possibly be the only person who felt passionate about spending time in my backyard...and my hunch was correct! I started this website as a way of sharing all my knowledge about all things backyard-related, whether that be answering your lawn questions, recommending long-lasting outdoor furniture, or even chatting to you about chickens in your yard.

I want my little space of the internet to be a place where all backyard fans can come together and learn something new! It will also be a great place for newbies to learn more about how to make their backyard the solace they deserve! Happy reading!
