About Us


Vicki JosephHello my name is Vicki Joseph and I am the owner of this website, yardsurfer.com, a website on everything to do with backyard landscaping. I have been involved in landscaping design for many years now specialising in new gardens and in renovating old gardens. This website is the culmination of my experience over my lifetime.

I have made this website a well-rounded authority on the topic of creating and maintaining your backyard. I have filled it with   informative articles and resources that will  help you develop and care for every aspect of your yard.

The site is very easy to navigate through and to find exactly what you need, very quickly. Please use the easy search function or simply browse the many topic tabs to find the answers to questions you may not realise you need.

Whether you are interested in organic gardening, sustainable gardening practices, installing and maintaining a pre-formed pond, constructing fencing and pathways or any other backyard landscaping topic, you will find exactly what you need here.

To help you even more, I have the eBook, Ideas4Landscaping that you can purchase at a discounted price. This eBook provides all the latest information to help you build garden sheds and ornamental structures, plan and plant flower and vegetable gardens, choose and arrange impressive collections of shrubbery, and much, much more.

The great thing is that this collection is always growing and always fresh thanks to lifetime membership to an online backyard landscaping library that benefits from constant additions of new ideas and projects online.

I hope you have fun going through this enormous amount of information and I wish you the best of luck in building your own backyard haven, Vicki Joseph
