Help with Lawn Care

Challenge, Home Maintenance

We are aging in our home where we have lived for quite a while.  We really enjoy our yard and the deer and birds who come to feed.  We are in our 80s and not able to as do much as we used to.  We have a yard care company who mow, but they do not pull weeds.  We cannot find help with this chore. What do other people do? 

Here are some products and services that may help you. Also, check in the comments section at the bottom of the page for more great ideas!

You may be able to work with a local church or scout troup.  Sometime the scouts can earn badges. It is possible a local troop could work with a local nursery or garen center – learning which plants are natives and which are invasive – and pulling your weeds in the process!

You may also see if there is a local chapter of Raising Men Lawn Care near you:

Raising Men Lawn Care Service is the union of an ordinary yard maintenance service and the commitment to establish an inspiring program to keep our youth on a positive path while learning and understanding their value in society.

RMLCS provides free lawn care to our elders, those who are disabled, single mothers, and our veterans, who do not have the time, resources and/or money to manicure their yards.
