Yesterday we got our proposal from Bernie at Dirty Hoe Landscaping. Joey and I had kind of estimated what we thought it would cost and we are spot on. You never know with these kinds of things and since we are very new to this it's good that there were no surprises. For a very fair price they are going to do the following:
- Remove weeds from garden beds
- Remove roses, except for climbing rose on arbor, and other undesirable plants
- Prune Apple and Citrus trees as needed
- Remove debris generated from above work
We are also going to have the soil amended for an additional fee. (Look at me using my fancy new gardening phrase.) We are also going to have him set up two raised garden beds. Joey them for me for my birthday and our anniversary. In addition to having a pretty garden, we are going to try our hand at growing food, too.
Bernie sent us a questionnaire about what we wanted in our garden. It contains ten questions about the importance of various things in our garden. Joey and I are going to go through it tonight. Once it's completed and our yard is cleared Bernie will start working on the plant list for us. So exciting!
