Broken leg means big bucks for Autumn clean-up...
IÂve been "out of commission" since Spring, due to a broken leg. My final cast came off today Â and I am now in a boot-like cast with metal bars Â which hopefully will come off on Dec. 22nd.
My gardens are a mess, because I couldnÂt work in them all summer. There are saplings, poison ivy, privet and all kinds of "unmentionables" throughout my beds.
IÂve gotten several quotes to cleanup and mulch Â and I finally selected a small landscape company that I hope will do a very good job. They are charging $900. (Bids ranged from $700 - $1200.)
IÂm not sure if the price is good, but itÂs going to be 4 Â 6 people working for two daysÂ The price includes labor, cleaning out numersous beds, digging up and removing two thick iris beds, mulching all of the beds and hauling away all of the debris.
I sure wish I had hired a service to keep up with things throughout the Summer, but I still would have had to pay big bucks IÂm sureÂ I didnÂt know it would get this bad!
Gardening Â not cheap when you canÂt do it yourselfÂ (or even Â when you can!)
