I’m Joe Bethel, the founder and main creator of lawn turf grass guides. I’m a lawn turf grass enthusiast who grew up in Bend, Oregon but is well-travelled worldwide.
My lawn care and maintenance journey started in childhood as I observed my parent hard work to establish and maintain a green lawn in our home. I saw them use trial and error until they established a beautiful lawn in our backyard. I would help my parents water, fertilize, and weed control as I enjoyed our lawn.
I’m a trained agriculture and geography teacher with an advanced environmental science degree specializing in planning, monitoring, and evaluation. I established this website to share my knowledge, experience, and hard-passed skills for lawn tools, care, and maintenance with my parents.
