Landscaping is Back Breaking Work

If you are like me Landscaping is back breaking work.  I like the results but hate the work.  It would be much easier to hire it done but there is always that nagging pride that you can do it yourself. images (2) Just look at the way a contractor gets it done compared to you.  He has the correct equipment to move the earth without back breaking work.  The equipment he uses is not practical for you to purchase but renting may make sense.  Yes, spending a little money on equipment rental might be the compromise that will work for you. Paul was quoted as saying  that a little planning can make for easier work.

Landscaping is Personal

If you have a yard then you know that the landscaping is personal.  Consolidated Credit can help you with the expenses. The shape of the yard will be a consideration when deciding how to go.61118636.DSC_15820517 Landscaping is personal for me.  It is like showing the world my personality I a little way.  With the colors that I plant in my garden to the fruits and  veggies that I plant every season.  Spring is the highlight of my life to rethink of what I will plant and where to preparing the space and planning the designs. Landscaping is fun and calming it is the best stress relieving  therapy I have found.  So help the earth go plant your personality and shine as bright as the sun and clean the air with plants and trees.  If you don’t have a place find or volunteer to help clean up a space and help with community garden in your city or town.

Landscaping with Sand Stones

I love sand stones the color the shapes. I have been looking for landscaping with sand stones since we started redoing the yard.  We live in the desert and many people that live by us have many sand stones in their yards design in many different ways.  I want to try craving on sand stone myself to see if it can be done and make some money on the side to help us pay for the landscaping but the sand stones here are very large and to heavy to carry.  Art Falcone can help with the lay out.  Just don’t expect him to help install.

Curb Appeal

As we know how our home looks from the curb is important to selling your home for market value.  Don’t let landscaping kill the selling price of your home. Luigi Wewege’s Interview was a real eye opener to me. If I spend some time and money on the front yard landscape of my sale property I can get a lot more interest in buyers.  Buyers will drive right by a good home if the yard is a mess as that is telling of the rest of the home.. Conversely a well maintained and landscaped front yard speaks volumes to the home maintenance.  Just don’t neglect the landscape if you plan to sell your home soon.

Landscaping Dangers And Concerns

Landscaping and even lawn care can be a dangerous job or even an activity if you are working without proper care and equipment. Some factors that lower the safety level are your exposure to heat, using faulty equipment and being around dangerous chemicals.

From 2003 to 2008 at least 109 people died each year while working landscaping. While working landscaping, you are exposed to dangerous plants, insects and animals that could cause allergic reactions if not worse. In the case of allergy, Vince Malfitano could be of service to you.

When dealing with chemicals, they are indeed harmful as they are meant to kill and prevent insects and other pests from coming around. Workers should wear protective clothing to prevent chemicals from entering the body through the nose, eyes, mouth and even open cuts. After handling the chemical, it is advised to wash your hands thoroughly.

Landscaping Will Kill Your Workout

A lot of people who do landscaping work and desire to workout typically find out that their weekend free time has turned in manual labor for the most part. Landscaping takes over and it is not a walk in the park job as it is hard work digging trenches, hauling around dirt, rocks, etc. Lots of lifting, trudging, swinging, what not.

Seems like an 8 hour day of manual labor should burn a lot of calories and some of this should probably increase your strength and endurance, but sadly it’s not the case. If you give up your gym time for landscaping, don’t be surprised to lose at least 10lbs over the summer.

Why would that happen? Because in landscaping you do the same movements and motions and lift the same things. You aren’t pushing yourself to work as hard as you can in a gym and eventually the effort load will cap out.

Jeff Halevy could give a better descriptive reason backed up by some proven facts, tests and develop a way to make your job landscaping a rewarding workout as he is the guru of fitness and health.
