Before I submit this to the local newspaper, any comments?
Just what does a modest property owner in this area have to do to retain the services of someone with knowledge of fertilization and weed control of a lawn to tend to that, do occasional yard work, plant 3 trees, and do some remedial yard work, excluding mowing?
We have admired a beautifully landscaped rural yard of someone who has posted a sign advertising landscaping, with a phone number, so called twice and received no response. We then responded to a good sized advertisement in one of the local weekly publications. The gentleman returned our call quite promptly yesterday and said that he would be at our home last evening to have a walkaround and give us an estimate. He called around the time he said he would be here and said that he was tied up at another job and would come over the following evening between 5 and 6. It is now 8:00 and we have not seen or heard from him. We can only assume that because we donÂt live in a McMansion, or an old stately home, we are not worthy of their services.
If these people are too busy, why advertise, or why not let it be known at the outset so as not to have us waiting, for a nonappearance.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
