Know all that yard work



I'm always talking about doing? Seriously, I've been working my ass off for months! Well, it has gotten overwhelming (the lawn part) because it was attacked by chinch bugs a while back.

So yesterday I bit the bullet and had a company come and give me a quote...

$2200.00!

I DON'T THINK SO!

I'm getting another quote today.

ETA- I suppose I could barter 2 hours in the sack with me...Then they would owe me $96.00.

They come around a certain time of year and attack St. Augustine grass (which is what I have) Believe me though my yard does not look $2200.00 Bad!

The chinch bugs attacked you?! Holy crap, you have bad luck!

I have no idea what the heck someone wants to do that would cost $2200, but TruGreen cleared up my chinch bugs and all of my other problems for $600/year. You probably have something like that up your way.

I've heard of some golf courses painting the greens when they are brown. May be that might be an idea til you get Truegreen there.
