Hire or do yourself?

Would you rather do your own yard/gardening work or hire somebody to do it for you? We have a beautifully landscaped yard and it was like that when we moved into our house almost 3 yrs ago. I am not much on keeping up with it, but am learning about gardening. My parents both keep theri yard kept like a home and garden magazine. If i knew more what i was doing i would LOVE to keep up the yardwork myself.....i still do, but not as much as i should....since i cant pay somebody to do it.

  • I'd rather do it myself. You can save a ton of money from learning how to do things yourself instead of paying someone to do it. And you get the satisfaction of getting something done and getting it done the way you want.

  • My DH takes care of the yardwork. Now if we lived on a lot of acreage and we had a lot of landscaping, I would hire someone. Might do a little myself (or DH would), but don't think we'd have to time to get done all by ourselves.
