If you plant your desert landscape - -wisely - - you will not really need a landscaper ! ! Why pay the cost for one of those guys ! ! ! - - plus have to put up with his terrible Gas-operated blower ! ! ! ! bad for the Ozone and bad for breathing ! ! *** However - - to do your own little bit of landscaping trimming and up-keep ...invest in an electric plant/bush trimmer (very low cost) and or sturdy hand-held trimmers.... Job done by you ! ! * * * * * No big cost for the landscaper and you get a nice work-out ! !
