About Ben Hale

Alright, who’s this Ben guy anyway?

I live with my family in southwest Ohio, born and raised. I consider myself blessed with an awesome wife, three crazy sons, and amazing family and friends. When not focused on Easy Living Yards and raising healthy happy kids, I enjoy the outdoors, and love to fix old things and create new things. In reality, most of my time is spent trying to make our home habitable, having my sons teach me how to play, doing the dishes, making dinner, and working at my full-time day job.
I know what it’s like to struggle with a tough landscape. Our current house sits on a half acre lot. The house was a mess inside and out when we bought it. It’s hard to find the time to work on yard beautification while fixing up the house, working full time, and raising a young family.
  • We’ve gotten notice of property maintenance violation while fixing our house.
  • We’ve got angry neighbors who think mowing your yard is more important than family.
  • We’ve got other neighbors who spite us because we don’t spray our yard with chemicals.
I have the knowledge to design landscapes to be beautiful and healthy and easy and eco friendly.
Follow us as we transform our yard from Beast to Beauty. We’re here to help you do it too!
I’m so glad you’re here to change your land and your life! And I’m happy to be part of your journey!
