But cutting grass opens the door to where I know I am cleaning up, and that is lawn restoration, tree and bush trimming & shaping, power washing, designing and installing landscape beds, retention walls, water features, and paver sidewalks and driveways. It only takes one good project a month to keep the wife smiling. So when I get two or three, she's walks around doing the happy dance, and for me, that's what it is all about. Keeping my girl happy and smiling.
