O.o I couldn't imagine not taking care of my own flowers and shrubs. I love the yard work. Dog poop scooping on the other hand... I'd totally hand that off to someone else. lol

I do it and rather enjoy it. I voted the first one, but its not a sense of pride I get out of it.... I'm not doing it to "one up" the neighbors, I just enjoy working outdoors and getting dirty while doing it.

We do it ourselves & a pretty good job at it, too! It's one of the things hubby & I enjoy doing together! We divide the jobs according to our "specialty" and strength & most of the time, being out in the garden together. He mows the grass while I water the plants.. He fertilize while I trim the flowers, he picks the fruits while I eat them LOL, etc... We receive so many comments from friends about how beautiful our garden is, especially our roses and tropical fruit trees

I voted margaritas. The bottom floor of my duplex is rented by an angry, drunk, unemployed middle aged troll., and as such I avoid the yard at all costs. I miss living in the country and having a little garden to tend, though sadly I tend to kill plants.

We do our own yardwork (well, what little of it we actually DO), but if I could, I would definitely pay someone! I HATE yardwork.

I see how it is, you sleep with someone to do it! lol

We (mostly I) do it ourselves. I enjoy the planting and mulching and all that, but I hate hate hate the raking. Now that my son has moved out, my husband does the mowing which he actually doesn't mind, he puts his ipod on and sings (embarasses me) as he mows. My yard isn't that big so the mowing doesn't take long.
