Got the first of the bids to fix the yard yesterday - $8400. That's outrageous. Of course, the reason we're bidding it out is because we haven't gotten around to it ourselves. But seriously. That's insane. I think I'm going to have to do some more searching around and pound my head on the sidewalk for this one. It's less than a weeks work for two people, and that's more than I make in 3 months. Maybe I should go into the gardening business.
