Yard work never ends

I think I have had to mow my yard 3 times in the last 2 weeks. I have a pretty big front and back yard and it takes some time to mow. I do not have a riding mower (at least not one that works) so I have to use a self-propelled Toro mower. The mower does a good job but it takes some time to do the front and back yards. Then I have to break out my gas powered weed wacker and have a go at the edging for another hour or so. So to add to that burden I of course put in a garden. Right now my radishes, cucumbers and squash are coming up. I have also planted flowers in the back yard. So now my girlfriend Teresa wants to landscape the front and back yards. To that end we have dug up (by hand) all around the front of the house. We pulled out the old shrubs and day lilies and are putting in some holly bushes and rhododendrons. I must admit that I think that once we are done the yard will look much better than it has. Tomorrow I plan on renting a tiller to do some of the grunt work. Teresa spent $250.00 (of my money) and bought several rhododendrons and holly bushes. Hopefully by the end of the weekend, with a lot of work and a lot of mulch, we should be ready to compete for ‘Better Homes and Gardens’ yard of the decade…
