Meet Perry Philips,

Owner & Founder

Perry Phillips here—I’m the founder and lead technician of Yellow Dog Lawncare Services. My career began in maintenance at a local, non-profit summer camp & conference center. After several years, I was unfortunately laid off during the COVID-19 pandemic. What originally felt like a devastating loss, quickly turned into a blessing by leading me to find my true passion, entrepreneurship.

Suddenly, I had a huge amount of free time on my hands. During this period, I turned to my close friend for guidance, and he suggested I look into lawncare & landscaping services. That led me to making a quick post on Craigslist, and 20 minutes later, I was booking my first job! Afterwards, I invested in a few key pieces of equipment, and while they weren’t the best, they got the job done. Now, with top-of-the-line equipment and sharpened skills, I’ve mastered the art of lawncare and landscaping while running my own business.


We’re the Definition of a Family Business

Not only did I want to build a business I was proud of, but one I could pass down to my children. In the beginning, I joined forces with my two children to embark on the adventure of starting a business. From choosing the company name and services, to the flowers we carry and the company colors—every decision was made as a family.

Now-a-days, my children are fully involved and assist me with jobs. My son is great with the mower and weed eater, precision and accuracy are his specialties. As for my daughter, she is a wizard at trimming bushes and works absolute magic on any flower bed she touches. On top of getting to brag about them, my favorite part of working with my children is having the chance to build memories that will last for the rest of our lives.

So, Who Is the
Yellow Dog?

Meet miss Sadie Girl, the one and only yellow dog. Serving as the inspiration for our family business’ name, she truly is our mascot. When starting the business, my children and I were brainstorming different names for the company. In the middle of talking about it, Sadie, our yellow lab, ran over and dropped her tennis ball at our feet. In that moment, we decided Yellow Dog Lawncare Services was our name.
