    yes, he comes once a  week.  Around here everyone who has a lawn has a gardner.  I don’t even know anyone who owns a lawn mower, (couldn’t even think of the word.  had to ask someone what those grass cutting machines were called)

    No, we don’t have any outdoor space. If we had a yard, we would absolutely have a gardener come, neither Fiance or I have ever cut the lawn and I don’t think either of us have any intention of learning how it. We both grew up in the suburbs with large backyards and everyone one we knew had a gardener come weekly.

    I grew up in a fairly upper-middle class neighbourhood and I’ve never heard of anyone having one, unless you count things like greendrop, paying a neighbourhood kid to mow your lawn or someone coming in to aerate the lawn.

    We are in the process of house hunting now and may be putting in an offer tomorrow! All of the properties we are looking at are a 1/2 acre +.

    Anyway my answer is no my husband loves to cut grass, he enjoys being outside and does not see it as a chore, his father made him and his brother do this type of work at an early age. With help from my Mother-In-Law I will learn the basics of gardening and take care of the pretty stuff. 🙂 For us we want to tell people; we did that!

    The manager of our neighborhood has people cut the grass in our current townhome, but we are buying a place and my husband says he is excited about doing yardwork, so we won’t be having a landscaper unless I want to have something like special bushes or something put in. I like to garden, too, so we plan on spending some time outside together. I would have no qualms with hiring someone to mow the grass if my husband didn’t want to do it, though.

    I imagine we won’t have a very large yard in the future. And I actually like gardening – veggies and flowers – so I want to do that stuff! I am not keen on mowing, so I will try to rake in my handsome man to do that. Hah.

    We have a two acre lawn, and majority needs to be mowed! I love it, I grew up landscaping and mowing (had my own mini neighborhood business). To me, it’s relaxing and that yard is “mine!”  

    My dad is/was a landscape architect and my parents owned a lawn business. It icede finitely something ingrained into you! I had a black thumb through college, until the property became mine. We have owned our house for about a year and a half and have already done Salome massive landscaping, including two retaining walls.

    We have a man come to do the lawns every 3 weeks and we are about to hire a landscaper to do an overhaul of the garden in the next few weeks.

    I have someone to mow the lawn weekly. I love it, and am happy to be rid of this chore.

    I used to enjoy it yardwork, but between nosy neighbors and other people’s dogs I am happy to hand over the reins to someone else.

    we do, but we live on a military base. if you have a fenced in yard, you’re responsible for the yardwork inside the fence. we don’t have a fenced in yard (just a patio), so we don’t have to worry about anything.

    We have a compnay that comes and fertilizes every couple of weeks.

    But we mow the grass, edge the sidewalks, pull the weeds, etc.

    We have a gardener that comes in weekly to weed/fertilize/mow/trim. We do most of the selection and design on our landscaping and usually buy the plants/trees and have him plant it where we want it for an additional cost to our monthly maintenance fees.
