Every few months we pay a friend to weed and do simple repairs for us. My teenage son also prefers yard work to indoor work for his daily choirs.

Our HOA does our landscaping but we hire The Lawn Doctor to fertilize and condition our lawn to keep it nice and green. The deer in the area tend to leave brown patches. TLD fixes those for us.

Recently, I hired a lawn maintenance/snow removal company due to health issues, just can't do it any more but I still do everything else

We have gardeners, but take care of the inside of the home ourselves.

I live in a condo community, so although I live in a townhouse, all of the building and grounds maintenance is covered by the monthly condo fees. It's an ideal situation.

I enjoy doing yard work and I actually like the cardio from mowing - I do use a riding for part though since we live on an acre lot.

I find it helpful to clean my own home with my own hands.

For a while we had a townhome where landscaping and snow removal were done for us. Now we have our retirement home and do for ourselves.
