Home Based Services
Home and yard projects. Includes tasks like trimming of bushes, weeding, mulching, edging, raking, gutter cleaning (one story homes only), garage cleaning, retrieving of Holiday decorations from basements and attics, etc. Some projects require larger groups, but generally smaller groups work well.
