Do you have a lawn service take care of your lawn or do you take care of your own lawn and property?

I used to mow our lawn but bc I Couldn't mow it at the exact time my dad wanted it done, he started getting a lawn service to do it.

I had 2 jobs. I told my dad, I'd do it when I could but that wasn't good enough for him.

Same here. When I had a house I mostly did the work myself though; other housemates did some of it, but I liked doing it the most.

I used to mow the grass growing up. It was my favorite chore, but other than that the humidity and the pollen made yardwork not fun for me in AL.

I loved gardening - didn't really do any of it when I was growing up, but my dad had a small vegetable garden, and a couple of grape vines. He or my brother mowed the grass.

I started gardening when the commune had a vacant lot to play with, and then when I owned a house (with a few housemates) in MIchigan for 13 years, I really got into it. I put raised beds of vegetables & some strawberries in the front yard (because that's where the sun was) plus herbs & some flowers in beds near the house. Later when we put up a wrought iron fence around the front, I planted 4 grape vines that grew up it. (They're still there! I can see at least 2-3 of them on Google Street View.) I mowed the grass with a beautiful push mower. We also at one point had 2 community garden plots.

I *really* miss having a yard and a garden. I did buy 8 little tomato plants on Sunday, mostly heirloom varieties, that will go in pots on a ledge, and I'll have herbs & a few flowers, but that's about all.
