Adventures In Mowing The Lawn – Part I


In the restaurant business, it’s always nice to have a team working together. If you have eight employees during a shift and one of them is not pulling his weight, then the whole thing can fall apart.

One day when we were cutting grass, (I ran a part-time lawn care business on the side), Dan came out of the store, told one of my employees that he liked the shirt that he was wearing and then proceeded to pull it off of his back. The employee was stunned, but he really couldn’t do anything about it. Finally when the shirt was about torn in two, Dan lost interest, let go, and went back into the store.

Jesus also admonishes us saying, “And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. And if you lend to those from whom you hope to receive back, what credit is that to you? For even sinners lend to sinners to receive as much back. But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil.” Luke 6:33-35.

So how do you get all that landscaping and yard work done without ending up needing a healthcare appointment? For one, you can always contract the work out with a landscaping or Lawn Care care companies. Many areas have one or more companies that will gladly do this work for a fee. If you want to do it yourself, you can take some precautions. First, simply break up the work. Try not to do everything on your list in one day. Instead, break it up over several days. If you do need to do a lot of work in one day, make sure to take frequent breaks. Stretch your muscles a lot, and protect yourself from the elements by wearing a sunhat and sunscreen. It’s amazing how quickly you can get sunburned just by working in the yard.

Make certain to schedule sufficient time to accomplish the project, and then try to schedule the build when there’s good weather it’s time for you to begin to build tool shed. You ought to have already selected your location as this helps to look for the best foundation for the building. Next, be sure to measure and stake from the site and prep the floor for that foundation. Next organize all your building materials where one can see and access them easily. Remember safety factors are always rule #1.
