I love landscaping jobs

It is such a joy in life to have a career where I receive God’s blessings in jobs with all aspects I love.  Interior Decorating is my first love, landscape and gardening are my two next best things.

This past week I had the opportunity to enhance a beautiful backyard for a client.  The setting was so peaceful with a backdrop of wooded area beyond their fence line and a swimming pool stretched in the middle like a cat perched on a pillow in a sunny window sill.  It seemed to fit perfectly in it’s surroundings. The lawn was spectacular and felt like a cushy carpet beneath our feet.  The beds were our focus with weeding, pruning and had many plants out of place.  They needed that designer WOW factor. It was a beautiful start to a U&I finish.

The client had a pond area next to where the building was going to be constructed and was filled with wildlife.  Frogs singing all day in harmony with the song birds. We had an unexpected intruder one day while working. A snake had slithered in for a daily meal on one of the little frogs. It was a terrible sight watching Mother Nature take its natural course.  I know that is how wild life works and I am thankful for the little frog giving his life because when doing so he alarmed with a cry that made me aware of the snakes presence in my working area. It kept us aware that we were in a woody working environment and needed to be careful while in the gardens.

We leveled the ground, weeded for an entire day, installed 15 tons of stone, 8 yards of mulch, installed several carefully selected palms and plants to grow into their space perfectly and never have to be pruned.

One of my major specialties when landscaping; I pick and choose material for the client that fits the area when full grown in doing so gives the client less maintenance time in the gardens and more fun time in the pool.

It was a full week of hard manual labor, tough and exhausting on this 54 year old gal but still a pleasant work week in this lovely yard. I feel blessed not needing to go to the gym and never once regretting getting up for work.  The clients are very pleased with the outcome.

Another happy client for the U&I Team.
