Gardeners and landscapers are ready for their busy season. Hopefully, if she needs yard work done, she's already called and made an appointment for a spring clean up. The same strategy is required for carpet cleaning, as well. Otherwise, she might have to wait, because from my experience, it's
hard to find decent, reasonable landscaping help, and the good guys fill up fast.
I once had what looked like a jungle of twines on the side of my house; it was nasty, thorny, thick, and difficult to remove. When I hired someone to do a spring clean up, I specifically noted that the job entailed making the twine jungle disappear; this was my greatest need. On clean-up day they did everything but the twiney stuff. I pointed it out, but they said they never knew. I contacted the salesperson who said he would swing by my house whenever he was in the area to take some whacks at it, ending with a request for my payment "as soon as possible." Anyone smell something wrong here? Honestly, I had to email the owner of the company, explaining my situation, as I dare not post my challenge on any social network. I feared for my lawn if I did. Thankfully, he obliged and sent a worker right over. The job ended up taking someone 15 minutes, I kid you not.
Most women, when faced with a problem, especially when cheated out of value, and when money (or children) are involved, will make some noise. How is she sounding off about you?
Some women have time to get to the garden chores, some have spouses who take on this responsibility, and others hire a gardener!
