MY yard gets no love

Am I the only one, or does your yard get no love? I have lived in my current house for 3 years, and I still haven't done almost any landscaping. I did however, test different Fertilizers, and spreaders. So about a 1000sq of the front is pretty burnt up...I keep telling my wife "this is the year we do all the landscaping''

Yeah, and the painter's house needs paint and the mechanic's car needs work...

Yeah, before I started in this business I had one of the best lawns on the block. Now I hide the truck in the back yard untill I catch up on mowing and give time to my own lawn.

When I moved into my house a few years ago it was by far the worst, but is now one of the better lawns. I've removed 19 trees from it, a pool, rotten deck, ivy pit, wood fence and approximately 40 bushes. I only have 6 more trees to go and then start on my new deck in the back.

No man, i keep my lawn looking good. If you keep it looking great and stay friendly with the neighbors then you should pick up some great business in your neighborhood. I currently do my neighbor's yard and at my old house I actually had 5 lawns in a row right across the street from my house.

I keep it cut and stripped really nice, I just have no landscaping. I really am motivated to get it in shape this year, and show case it. I live on a busy street!

Mine gets cut once a month if it needs it or not.

lol, my significant other told me she was going to hire a lawn guy the other day. I said go ahead. We bought a foreclosure that needs a ton of lawn work. I just dont feel like messing with it right now.
