Mister Bermuda was founded by John Walters. He was born and raised in the South Jersey area, where he developed an obsession for the lawn care industry and with Italian hoagies (in particular the R Special and Diablo at Pal Joey’s).
John went to Texas, Utah, Texas starting and building landscaping companies. He became an arborist, with expertise in trees, lawns, and pest control. He has spent the last two decades studying, researching, and learning about the science of plant health care.
The mission of this company is to become the best lawn care company in the US by maintaining the highest quality service and a focus on customer experience. We are not trying to build a fast-growth, high turnover company obsessed with sales. We want to create a business that will last for years to come, and build a legacy for our families.
John is a second generation lawn care expert. He started in the turf/shrub/sree business in 1988, cutting grass and fertilizing lawns in Southern NJ.
As he started building services, he quickly found that he was drawn to the plant health care side of things. He’s been at it for 33 years now.
John has worked in plant health care on the East Coast, the Rocky Mountains, Alaska, and the South. He has become a true expert, having seriously studied plants, pathogens and prescription for years. He has one of the broadest, and deepest knowledge bases in the industry.
Because of his breadth of knowledge, John is able to take a more holistic approach to landscape. He understands how turf fertilizers and weed controls affect your trees. He understands how tree treatments will affect your turf. He understands how all parts of a landscape work together. As he sees it, “It’s all one landscape.”
John claims that he is no fun at parties as conversation quickly turns to work, and before long, he ends up fielding questions about someone’s landscape. But he wouldn’t have it any other way.
