"We Like To Dig"
I classified this post under "Love & Marriage", because Matt and I where having some "discussions" about how I wanted us to work harder on getting the back yard ready for the summer. The looming project was to dig out the grass from around the deck to put in a path that will lead to a future sandbox and raised garden bed. With a 2 yo and a 7 month old prancing/rolling around, this project was too big. I decided to suck it up/take stress off of us, and put a posting on Craigslist to solicit some help.
This guy calls - at 6am.. and says he and his twin brother "like to dig." Well, ok - so they come over the next day and they just get started. These guys where great, they where prompt, worked their fannies off, friendly, knowledgeable, where always up front about how doing this or that may affect the cost. They charge $15/hour per brother - $30 total/hour. There is a leap of faith involved as they are not yet bonded, licensed or insured. They are apparently working on this as they are starting their own company. I thought I would share their names and number because we where so pleased with them.
