Off-topic: Phoenix/Scottsdale handyman?
I hope you'll forgive me for straying off the topic of gardening, but since this is the only place with geographical breakdowns...
I'm having an impossible time trying to pin down a competent handyman, prefering one who can do delicate things, not just a bull in a china shop. I've called three previous guys - one who moved prohibitively far away, one who is sidelined with a heart attack, and one now a full-time caretaker for his ill wife. I've then called FIVE new prospects, including ones recommended by a neighbor and a plumber, and not one of them is returning my calls after I left multiple messages.
So if anyone has someone to recommend, someone reasonably priced, for small projects, not somesone fancying himself a contractor for $40/hour wanting to do huge remodelng jobs - for the Scottsdale-Tempe-east Phoenix area - I'd be very grateful.
