Gary works very hard on our lawn and landscape...and I get complimented constantly.
G may be one of the few men who someone has to say "Why are you mowing the lawn...again?!" Sometimes he even uses a reel mower after the regular mower to "shave the inconsistencies" left by the incredibly expensive Cub Cadet 33" mower. All this because our yard is on a hill.
Anywho. It looks wonderful. The grass, the flowers... all of it. Most of it was done before he began working for a landscaping company. Most of the hard scape was done using "found" items, things people didn't want or we got for free.
The flowers...not so much.
