About Me

Hello and welcome to Matthew J Goodwin. I am Matthew and I’m on a mission to give you simplified and actionable gardening/lawn care advice.

Matthew J Goodwin was established in 2017 with the goal to provide easy to understand gardening advice that make real impact. I was always frustrated seeing too many gardening blogs fail to provide actionable information to their audience.

I wanted Matthew J Goodwin to be different and I made a commitment to making sure our advice can be followed by ​regular people with busy lives.

My Story
Ever since I was young boy, my mom worked on her garden a few times during the week and for a few hours in the weekend. Of course, as she learned that I was interested in her hobby she quickly made me her “little gardening sidekick”. She grew wonderful crops of vegetation, fruits and even aloe plants. Her garden was truly gorgeous and I learned a ton just being around her working on her garden.

After I got married, I made sure to buy a home with a sizable backyard to grow a garden. Long story short, it took a long time to get the garden to where I was happy. I hit a lot of road blocks with soil quality, pesky weeds and even critters that love my garden just as much as I do, maybe even a bit more haha. I was able to FINALLY get it right and share my best tips on this blog so that you can do the same.

It took a lot of trial and error to get where I am today, and I’m so grateful that I get a chance to share my insights with so many people. ​In the years since we started, my team and I have helped thousands of people lead a happier life with a garden they are proud of.

I wish you the all the best on your gardening journey.

Truly yours,

Matthew J Goodwin
