A few weeks ago I was backed into the 'ole proverbial corner which resulted in our hiring a professional yard service. Wife said I needed to slow down, didn't have the time, was too old (really?) and needed help. I reluctantly agreed.
We hired a young couple. I walked them around our home and described exactly how I 'liked' things done. Trim here. Cut this down to there. Edge this way and please don't do this - you get the drift.
One of my pet peeves is the height of my St. Augustine grass. I like it cut high. Otherwise it suffers and the roots dry far too quickly.
Sweet Wife has given me instructions....I'm not to work in our yard without adult supervision. So, as she sits in church services with her mother I shall dress in my grubbiest and hit the yard. I've work to do.
Time to sweat.
