    My place starts to look dingy, but not horrible when the season starts to get busy. How does your property look and do you have any time to deal with it.

    Will this suffice?

    Not to boast, its just my love for landscaping, my yard is kept near perfect at all times. I have 7 lawns, a huge pond, 2 nature trails and am starting to landscape the entrance. I purchased another home 2 years that at one time was beautiflly landscaped, everything is over grown but Im restoring the property. It has some beautiful rock work and is starting to shape up. Yesterday I aerated the part of the grass that is zozia and fertilized it, hoping it will spread. So far Ive sprayed over 20 gallons of round up. I had to give up Golf to beable to do all this

    I love working in my yard- there was NOTHING when I bought the house 4 years ago. I find it relaxing to take care of my little piece of land at the end of the day. Yes, I have no kids- so I do have the time to spend. The backyard is last summer- the front is today.

    Nice yards guys.

    I have some work to do. Got my annuals in, but I need about 5 yards of mulch and to kill some weeds before I am ready for primetime.

    If it's anymore motivation- if you live on a somewhat busy street (like where people go on walks, etc) it pays to get your yard looking nice. It not only increases your home's value, but I am always getting people who stop and talk if I'm out in the front... It's a good time to pass along a couple cards and chat. I've got a few jobs lined up very close by from the work I've done on my property. We've got GREAT soil in my neighborhood as well- makes the work awesome!
