The landscape contractors arrived yesterday.
A follow-up to my earlier post about hiring a landscape contractor...
They unexpectedly arrived yesterday afternoon, just as my husband was heading out to work. He said it was like an invading army... three huge trucks and a zillion workers. Well, actually, 6 crew members and the owner.
They got about 90% of the weeding done yesterday and are edging and mulching today. I'm impressed by the weeding job... they cleared everything out thoroughly, but left some nice native milkweed. I really like the milkweed but hadn't said anything about it since the owner said he didn't want to do "picky" weeding. They made that good decision on their own.
Somehow I feel less wimpy about hiring out this work, if it's taking 6-7 people 8+ hours to do it.
