I really enjoy maintaining my yard and ourdoor space in general. Cutting the lawn on a beautiful Saturday morning just feels right to me. I've recently tried one of the battery powered electric Lawnmowers and they are really surprisingly effective. They have very low volume, but do a great job. A couple of months ago I did my pre-winter final trimming of my bushes and I hired a local Arborist to do my higher level tree pruning. My electric trimmer made the bush work eash and my kids enjoy being outside and helped with the cleanup. I live in the Greenville, SC area and got my tree trimming done by The City Arborist. They are really great. I like to get the trees cut back professionally each year to make sure everything stays looking nice, as well as ensuring the trees are healthy going into the spring.
It has been pretty cold here lately so we haven't spent too much time outside. I'm definitely looking forward to spring (it effectively starts in late Feb to early Mar here). My kids and I plan on maximizing our time outside and I'm getting my plans for outdoor area maintenance together.
