The Landscaper

Dad and I spent the day working in the yard. In the spring we raked all the leaves out and trimmed some of the bushes. Now everything has grown and we had to clean and trim again. Dad had mulch delivered and we worked together to spread it under all the bushes. Dad’s friend owns the landscaping place and he delivered our mulch so he visited with us a little bit and gave Dad a bunch of ideas for our yard. Dad’s friend, Tom, started working in landscaping as a kid in his family’s business and now he owns it. Tom had to learn a lot about trees, grass and shrubs and he even knows stuff about fungus and other things that hurt the plants in our yard. He gave us some stuff to wash our lilac tree because it has a fungus hurting it. Tom learned his business from his family but some people go to college to learn all of the same stuff.

I thought we should put a pool in our yard but Dad said we couldn’t. My friend Lisa just got a pool so I guess I will swim at her house.
