The YardDoc Management Team

Adrian Fowler-Owner-About YardDoc

Adrian Fowler

Owner, Pest Services manager

Adrian studied finance in college and went on to earn an MBA. He started his first business while still a student. His offerings included looking after pets, pool cleaning, lawn mowing, and handyman services. He hired fellow students to deliver these services. Adrian lived and worked in Cape Town & Johannesburg, South Africa, Vienna, Austria, and Prague in the Czech Republic before settling in the US.
 

He was involved in several businesses before deciding to settle in Austin, Texas in 2015 and launch YardDoc. Adrian is a certified pool operator, licensed irrigator, and certified applicator for pest services. He takes particular pride in YardDoc’s organic pest control service. It is a tremendous benefit to the Austin community and an important way his business contributes to protecting the environment.

"I enjoy helping people; it energizes me, and this is why I started YardDoc. The caveat is that I hate failing people–and that makes it really, really tough when things don’t work out exactly as planned. We do offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee though, so if we make a mistake, we make it right or we don’t charge for the service."

Christian Johnson - About YardDoc

Christian Johnson

Pool Services Manager

Christian grew up in Port Aransas and moved to Austin after High School. He joined YardDoc in 2017 as a pool technician, learning all aspects of swimming pool maintenance from initially cleaning pools and optimizing water chemistry through doing equipment repairs and installations.

 

With over 5 years of pool maintenance and repair experience and with his dedication and hard work it was only fitting for Christian to become the Pool Services Manager in 2021. Christian has always been willing to go above and beyond for his customers.

 

In his free time, he enjoys maintaining his aquariums and playing bass guitar. Christian loves to be around water, whether it be on the coast catching a wave, or by the river enjoying the day with friends and family. H20 is in his blood, so working around swimming pools is a perfect fit.
