My backyard was more than neglected for a few years. It was the least of my worries and that was evident. All of the trees and bushes had overgrown, the grass had died, and the weeds had happily taken over.
I attempted to clean it up over the years, but because of the fibro I just didn’t have the strength or energy to get much done. My middle child was supposed to keep up with the lawn, but I didn’t keep on him enough and even with the rare times he did, his efforts didn’t make much of a difference.
My boyfriend tried to tackle the mess (and he is a strong and determined man) but the jungle was too much, for even him. So after a few failed attempts of getting the yard in order by ourselves we decided to hire a landscaping company.
