    Is anyone else lazy like me? Ive lived in my house for 4 yrs. and i just now landscaped my own friggin house! I guess its true when they say that doctors are always sick, mechanics drive beaters, and lawn and landscape "professionals" live in sh&^holes.

    Just wondering.

    I hear you my lawn is always the last to be cut. My wife threatened to hire another company to cut my own yard.

    I know what you mean. The guy I used to work for had more trash than grass in his front lawn and a pile of broken cinder blocks for a front porch.

    It only took me 4 weeks to plant some trees at my house that my father bought. Only took 3 weeks to get around to digging the holes. Thank god I had a rented Mini track hoe on a job up the street. So I drove it home during lunch. Only took 15 mins, but If I didn't have it would have taken a couple of hours to do it by hand. It still took me another week to get them in the ground.

    I got fertilizer for my lawn that has been sitting here for 2 months.

    If there is money to be made, free jobs can wait.

    I've stopped fertilizing my lawn so it doesn't grow so fast. Right now I cut it every 2 or 3 weeks. Everybody compliments us on all the flowers we planted. Actually we paid my wife's sister to do it for us.
