June 18th, 2008
We have trees and shrubs! It only took 14 months, but we did it. We were supposed to have at least 3 trees and 15 shrubs within 60 days of closing on our house. Whoops! We missed that fine print. We now have 5 trees and over 100 other shrubs/plants. We're not finished, but this should keep us out of hot water. We still have another 12 trees and several flower beds on the side of the house and in the back yard. It's getting too hot to do any more planting, so we're going to wait until the fall to do the rest. We've been doing the work ourselves and have only spent a fraction of the $30,000.00 bid. By the time we finish, we shouldn't spend much over $10,000.00. Bob has done a fabulous job. He doesn't get much time off work - often he works till 10:00pm or later. He's off work on Wednesdays and Sundays. So, not a lot of time to get everything done. He's a great handyman and has saved us a lot of money. He even worked all day on Father's Day.
