I am not my father when it comes to yard work. I'm pretty lazy, don't plant things, and I don't even know what half the stuff growing in my yard is. But I do try to keep things basically in order, and so in the places I've lived I occasionally find myself working out in the yard or clearing the sidewalks. Never in Elmhurst, Chicago, or Cody has anyone ever stopped to advise me on what I was doing, but Seattle is... different. I've been advised how to trim and prune junipers, not to rake leaves, and not to cut blackberries overhanging the sidewalk.
