This should be making me feel better -- getting a lot of heavy work done that's been piling up -- edging to keep grass from growing into planting borders, weed block and rock in some of the planting areas, lots of pruning etc. Instead I am stressed to the max having someone in my yard. What is wrong with me? The person I've hired is really nice, doing a very good job, works hard. The shrubs etc. are not getting pruned exactly the way I like -- a natural look -- but they were really overgrown and I had known some things would probably end up looking like blobs for a while -- but I am still stressed. Does anyone else get nervous having workers around? This is something I had put off doing too long because I really don't feel I can afford it, but can't afford to let the place deteriorate either. I keep telling myself to calm down. Ridiculous. Thanks for letting me vent!
