I'm as Mad as ***...'landscape' crews
My parents are getting on in years, & my mom can't take care of her garden the way she used to. I try to help out as much as I can, but in Spring I'm busy with my own garden, so she had a landscape crew (the people who cut their grass) edge her beds & put down mulch. Result - VOLCANOS!!! MULCH on top of PLANTS!! Weeds buried! Soil from the edging thrown onto plants & tree trunks! Guess who has to fix these messes? I can't take it anymore. (Sorry about the rant.)
Does anyone know of a gardener in the Chicagoland area my parents could hire to do these chores for them? They live in the Northwest suburbs.
