    I live in Connecticut and need someone to maintain my lawns each week.
    Where should I look to find RELIABLE, DEPENDABLE, and TRUSTWORTHY help?
    Or is this just simply a pipe dream? I hate the very thought of having to hire someone but I have no choice.
    Any input would be appreciated.

    Add how big the yard is and what you would be willing to pay.

    Viva LA Mexico!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Just Joking I went through seven guys before I found two semi competant employees. However, they still have no work ethic or take any pride in their work.

    Look for School teachers to fill in the gaps in the summer
