My MIL was just at our house in North Port and said it's probably time for us to get someone to mow for us until we get there. So, any recommendations for a reliable honest service? I don't want to sign a contract as I'll be doing it myself when we move in a few months. I just want to have them do it probably once a month for now?

Oh my that is a wonderful idea. Too bad I don't know any of them yet but that sure would work out nicely. Maybe I need to get my MIL to go back down and scour the neighborhood for some teenagers!

I would just LOVE to go cut it myself, we had 8 inches of snow last night and are so tired of shoveling and snow blowing!

Pete Savino, Hollywood Lawn Care, 941-286-7675. I've used him many times and have been pleased every time.

Sure, no problem. I believe he also does Big Houses personal residence so he could probably chime in as well.

I've used him about 5-6 times for various out of state or investor clients and everyone has been happy.

If you need any repair work done I usually use Mike Rinck's Handyman Service, 941-628-3301. He is licensed and can do just about anything.

Also Edgewater Homes could probably do most repair work you might need.

Oh my!! SoFlGal is gonna give away all my great friends. They'll get so busy they won't want to take care of me anymore!

But, I can't deny - they are both good people and will do a good job for ya! Pete, also lets me know if there is anything else that needs my attention when I'm gone. I've had Mike come and bail me out of a couple problem projects that I started and decided to throw my hands up in the air and say No mas! No mas!
