I had no idea what it would be like to have professionals come to my home for the day & work in my yard. I felt kind of guilty watching them....
until my DH reminded me that we were paying them a small fortune to do the work for us.
That particular tree had termite damage (one MAJOR thing I hate about living in California) & here's what they were doing to my tree:
Needless to say, now I just have a bunch of ugly naked spots in my yards, so we'll be off to the nursery very soon! In fact, we'll be shopping a lot lately with all the exterior home projects on my list:
- Replant yard
- Replace fence that is falling into neighbors yard (termites again)
- Replace access door to garage
- Repaint house & garage (the trim at least)
- Replace 3rd bedroom outside access door
Don't even get me started on the interior projects which include new hardwood floors & such! Never a dull moment when you own a 50-yr old house that no previous homeowner seemed to take care of.
I think it will be easier to move.
