So, I've always let DH handle the yards. Sometimes, about 3 times a summer, I'll mow the grass. I will plant flowers, etc, but only after he's prepared the beds (to my specifications).
Well, I'm bucking that trend!! I've spent the last two days getting the yard ready for seed (still got about 3 days of work to do until we can easily plant seed). I've staked out a vegetable garden area and I will be doing the tilling, etc!!
AND - just now, I spent an hour with the leaf blower, getting the leaves out from under the deck, out of my flower beds, etc. That was FUN! I LOVE doing the leaf blower!!
I don't like the noise, and my hands are still tingly - but it was so fun!
So - at your home, who does the yard work, the gardening, etc? And, if you do anything is it because you like to or have to?
My DH generally does the yard work (mowing, raking, etc.) with the exception of trimming the azaleas and other large bushes because I love my electric hedge trimmer! LOL I feel like Leatherface or something (but in a good way). When we lived in AL and had a bunch of land, I would mow the lawn about every other time (about 2 1/2 of our acres were cleared and needed to be mowed - with our push mower!). I kept that up until I came across a 4 1/2 - 5 ft long grey rat snake. That was the last time I mowed.
Well we have a lawn guy who does the mowing but we do everything else like
planting, seed/weed stuff and etc. When we built the house we did the lawn
ourselves but it took us the whole weekend. Our lawn guy does it in 30 minutes.
I couldn't believe it!!! My DH helps but if it was up to him we would just have
bushes and nothing that needs much work.
DH mows the lawn and does the edging. I plant and weed here and there. My mother is the big gardener. She can stay in the yard for hours and hours. I only go out and garden when I have to. We also have TrueGreen come out to treat the lawn and it has made a huge difference.
