Why I Hate DIY Landscaping Projects

Some people do this for fun, others hire it done...

No, that wasn't an old root, it was the main irrigation line.  Yes, that is a shovel inflicted gash just below the clamped splice.  Ack!  Thpppt!

Yes, it is good to live near a Home Depot.  An hour later, I managed to break even and returned to prepping the front yard of the house where I no longer live for some shrubbery.

To paraphrase Greta Garbo, "I want to be in a condo!" 


  1. Sometimes it saves time and money to hire a pro and have it done right on the first try.

  2. I don't like doing them on my own either. I think I will hire a landscape architect in Oakland NJ. I think it'll be worth the money.
