Landscaping Help for a Toronto Gardener

– Posted in: Miscellaneous

Beth Lawrence of Grow See This and her landscape firm Common Ground, are offering to do a landscape job at cost price for one individual or group. As Beth relates

Maybe it’s someone you know who is elderly, or has other physical challenges. Or perhaps a bunch of renters, whose landlord is too thrifty to do anything with the jungle in the back yard and there is no common area for being able to just sit out side.

Contact her by October 10th.

About the Author

Kathy Purdy is a colchicum evangelist, converting unsuspecting gardeners into colchicophiles. She would be delighted to speak to your group about colchicums or other gardening topics. Kathy’s been writing since 4th grade, gardening since high school, and blogging since 2002.

Now, the digging and dividing of perennials, the general autumn cleanup and the planting of spring bulbs are all an act of faith. One carries on before the altar of delayed gratification, until the ground freezes and you can’t do any more other than refill the bird feeder and gaze through the window, waiting for the snow. . . . Meanwhile, it helps to think of yourself as a pear tree or a tulip. You will blossom spectacularly in the spring, but only after the required period of chilling.

I see it has been a while since you have posted here. Hopefully you are still around. Keep up the good work

Way to go Kathy. I think that is an awesome and wonderful thing that you are doing for someone in need. There are many elderly people in need who can’t afford to have their yards taken care of just because of the cost of prescriptions. Doing it for cost is really special. Thumbs up to ya.

Hello Kathy and Rose

Yes, sadly this offer is only for Torontonians and the out laying areas.

Rose, you need to contact Beth directly. I only know what I read on the website, and from that I gather the offer is for someone in Beth’s vicinity.

Is this offer only for someone who lives in Toronto?
