Fluff up a home in Needham
Today I went with Guillerme to a property over in Needham, to weed, do some hand trimming and as we would find out later trim up a few Yews. This is a very large property, you can see part of the back yard in the picture on the above left. It is around 7 acres and had not had any attention to it since the spring and needed a little fluff up to look nice. This is also the home of the grandmother of the boy who is getting married that I posted about last week.
When we got there I noticed that the large yews in the front of the property for some reason had not been trimmed this year. I called Rob, who was at a property close by and he brought over the power shears for Guillerme top trim them up. I went around hand clipping the smaller bushes and continued with the weeding of all of the beds going around the house and a few more in the back yard.
We finished up a bit early and headed back to the shop. It was a good idea as now that the kids are back in school the traffic has increased dramatically, which just makes for a longer day. Oh well its the weekend.
I am a divorced dad, with one son in college and one daughter, who is married and has my 3 wonderful grandchildren. I live in Grafton, Massachusetts. I have been Landscaping for the past 17 seasons with one company and have spent 3 seasons with 1 other landscape company, here in Massachusetts.
I do all phases of the landscape work at this company, from construction, installation, maintenance, trimming and have a Massachusetts Pesticide License.
