Tree trimmers - and glorious RAIN!

Earlier in the summer we hired some landscape renovation done.  One of the goals was to trim back our wonderful oak and pecan trees, of which there are many.  Fortunately, the landscaper I hired knew it wasn't the right time of the year to do that job.  (Note to self:  there's a reason I hire professionals to do their jobs, just like I believe there's a reason for others to hire me to do mine when they are ready to buy or sell a home!)

So the right time finally came and the tree trimmers showed up.  Oh boy what a difference it is making!  It's like our yard has had it's bangs trimmed and we can all see the eyes of our house!  They started in the front yard, and just like a haircut, the ground is a mess, but when I look up it sure makes a difference!

They were going great guns when the sky opened up.  We've had wonderful, much needed rain the past couple of days.  I just know when the tree trimmers can finish in the back, and we will be able to see all the way to the river behind us, there will be water in the river AND a beautiful view of it! 

This particular home maintenance job has made me think of homes on the market.  Are they blocked from view by overgrown shrubs or trees?  Take a close look at your house or the one you have listed.  See if the curb appeal can be improved with a job like this, and let everyone enjoy the view from both outside and inside.  It's worth it!

I couldn't agree more Carla. Congrats on the new beautiful view! We're getting some rain up here right now too. I have a couple of big Bradford Pear trees that need to be trimmed. Want to come up here and show me what you have learned? I'll provide the trash bags! :)

The only thing I've learned is to hire it done, but it's worth it! They know what they're doing, it's a lot of hard work, and I think I'd break my neck falling from our huge trees! Another one of those jobs that I'm REALLY glad there are people in this world who provide the service - kinda like the septic system guys and some other "dirty jobs" - so glad they are available to hire!
