We do our own. I have an extreme aversion to paying someone to do things that I am perfectly capable of doing.
Golden Meadow, LA
We do our own yard work. Working in the yard is a nice distraction from real estate, etc.
It was all good until we cut the giant Bird of Paradise down. It hit me in the head and dropped me on my ass.
Concussion aside, I still really enjoy working in the yard.
I have peeps.
We do our own.
Definitely hire it done. I don’t like to do it and young people will do it cheap.
My "yard" is a balcony --- I do it myself.
I do my own...good for my soul and my health
My expanse of Augustine grass can be nicely manicured with a weed whacker and hedge trimmer. The leaves from the tree easily managed with a wisk broom and baggie.
Today, my back yard is towered over by a blooming Cassia tree shrouded in a golden blanket, giant marigolds and pineapple plants bordered by Muhly grass in lavender splendor.
There is something deeply satisfying in knowing my hand helped.
To get away from the computer and phone; I do mine and an elderly neighbor's.
We live in a patio home with no yard. And I love it.
We did our own for many years, but now we employ our son who is a professional landscaper. And by "employ" I mean we offer free storage of all of his landscaping equipment in exchange for the upkeep of our yard :)
We do most of it, but Sunday we paid someone $300.00 to bush hog about 7 acres.
Jenna Dixon has my way of thinking on this.
Good Tuesday morning William. Some yard work I do myself other work I hire out.
My yard work is done by me. There are many times I would like to hire it out and just can not justify the cost. Also would mean to me that I am getting lazy. lol Mark
We do our own yard work, but have someone do the fertilizing.
Yes we do it. This year Larry did all of it...bless his heart!
I hire most of it - although I do the flower planting and a little trimming.
My favorite past time is doing my own landscaping. I look forward to it every weekend.
Depends on the task. For the weekly "mow and blow" and monthly trimming I hire it out. For minor things like replacing sprinklers, I do it myself. New heads cost 30 cents. Why pay 30 dollars for my gardner to do it?
My current project: I have a dead plum tree that some bug killed. I'm chopping it down little by little week by week. No sense in paying a company to do it when I can do it myself pretty easily and put it in my trash can each week. No urgency on this task.
