I do some when I can but we have a gardener to do the big stuff - trim palm trees, etc.  We took up our small front lawn and replaced with a drought tolerant garden so no grass!

Yes. LOL
I have low maintenance landscaping but I'll go out there and trim palm trees and change out sprinkler heads . . . I have a landscaper for big jobs. And weed control every 6 months which is more than adequate. I like being out there, though.

Mostly Dave & I.  He is a 'died in the wool DIY' guy and I am his 'go-fer'

We do have someone apply 'weed n feed' treatment several times during growing season and plow driver during winter months much to Dave's chagrin.  Oh well, that was my decision and he lives with it

Once a year we have a landscaper out, and he trims our 5 trees, as they are mature, and three times a year the same crew comes out to trim bushes and take lower branches off of cactus.  Also, once a year we spray down emergent for weeds.  We do very little ourselves, since very little has to be done Byron K .

I have paid to have my lawn treated for the last 3 or 4 years.  So worth it to get it under control. This year I stopped.  My yard is a mess of weeds coming back.  If you don't watch what they are doing every time, they don't do half of it.
