Is there any way I get anybody to do my yard work for free this spring and summer?
I know this probably sounds like a crazy question but I'm living on SSI and I just can't afford to pay anybody. Right now, my grass doesn't need to be cut but it will need it this spring and summer. My shrubbery has been needing to be trimmed for a LONG time, though!!!! I have weed eating that needs to be done, too. None of the women in my family ever did yard work. Any help anybody can offer will be greatly appreciated.
Why not approach a local garden service and ask them if you could arrange to do a trade exchange with them. Perhaps you could blog/hub about your garden make over in an exchange for a free days work. You could hand out flyers for them, or you maybe there is another business related service that you could exchange.
Another idea is to approach your local scouts and ask the leaders if there are any projects/challenges that the boys could do in your garden.
Lastly, you could approach a school and offer to run detention in your garden! The last one is a laugh but hey why not!!!
Well, I have a suggestion...Do you have a spare bedroom to rent out? Maybe a male or female student would fit the bill. If so, charge a reduced price for rent with the stipulation that the tenant does (a detailed listing of specified) yard work, every day, every other day or on the weekends (you decide). This could work out well for someone on a limited budget and help you with your lack of funds as well. Good luck!
Love this idea! I rented a room from a 95 year old lady when I was in graduate school. It was a "win" for both of us. I got cheap rent; she got a homemade dinner and yardwork.
This sounds like a good idea but since I'm living on SSI, I would have to let social security know if somebody comes to live with me. If I don't tell them, they will stop my SSI check.
