I really enjoy helping busy people upgrade their gardens and the fall is a great time to do it. Once the clean-up is completed, you can relax all winter and dream up new projects for spring.
Just this week I received a referral from a client-always nice and much appreciated!- to go see his friend about his backyard. The first text message was priceless: "I haven't touched the backyard in four years and I think there are some new trees growing." Great! Four years isn't so bad. I've seen worse.
So I went in to see it and the four trees are cottonwoods which most likely drifted in with the wind. If we allowed them to grow to maturity they would tower over the backyard. I will remove them and then do some shrub pruning and weeding. The lawn will get one last cut.
If you ever feel overwhelmed or time-stressed, please give me a call. I can help you!
