This Explains A Lot

We're replacing our front yard (previously a standard grassy landscape) with a native plants garden. The first step is to kill all the grass and remove the existing landscaping. The landscaper came today to spray grass killer and take out some paving stones that were enclosing a garden area near the house. He carted the stones into our backyard, beside the garage.

Tonight, Hubby went out to make sure the gate was locked. He came back in and said that it looked like the landscaper had gotten all the pavers stacked neatly. "We're going to have a new front garden, and we won't have to do anything at all." he said.

Well, yes. That is sort of the point of hiring someone to do something. You don't have to do anything.


  1. That's so cool. I dream of doing some zeroscaping (I mean having some zeroscaping done). In a recent magazine, I also saw this recycled plastic astroturf like "grass" that folks in LA are having put in to replace their lawns, in order to be a lot more ecofriendly. But DH would never go for something like that.

  2. This why I will hire a gardener if I ever become rich. Wouldn't that be nice? I'd love to hire people for a lot of things that I'm not good at or don't have time for. Unfortunately, it takes money, and we don't have enough of that either.

    I think it's awesome you are getting your lawn redone. That is a huge project, and it makes a lot of sense to hire an expert to do it!

  3. That sounds really neat! And yes, hiring people--it's amazing!
