Hi back to you Sgt,

I went to the website you recommended and agree that it is a good one. One item I thought worthy of consideration is the olive tree right on the 1st page of the site. They say it would make a good screen, that it is slow growing...therefore manageable.

I wonder if it is an approved way of planting privacy?

I also wonder, is this the type of tree from which you could actually collect the olives and process them for eating? That might be fun. If not at least it seems that it will attract the winter birds and is evergreen.

What do you think?

They had a nice ad for sunrooms also on this site.

Sorry for the delay in responding to you. Just found the info you requested.

There are no annual contracts for weeding - cost is $10 per month

Pest control is $20 per month

Pruning, trimming and clean up is billed at $40 per hour, but you are charged in 15 minute increments.

Fertilizer application is based on actual quantities used.

They all sell trees and plants. I found the cost of there plants lower than in some of the nurseries I visited while in TV.

Like I said, I was extremely impressed with her, They will be doing our lawn care while we are away.

Hope this helps.
