Many homeowners and gardeners would not think of the idea of having someone else working in their yard or garden. Yet  others, due to the size of the project or a host of other reasons, use the service of a lawn or landscape service.
Recently, the Sentinel-Tribune caught up with Bryan Joseph and the staff of D&D Landscaping at a Bowling Green residence as they worked at the condominium of Rob and Mary Holley.
Much of their work that day involved adding a layer of mulch to the landscaped areas of the Holley home, including a large impressive waterfall feature.
"We can do just about anything for people, from full landscaping to regular maintenance," Joseph said.
There are also provide a variety of other services. He noted how an elderly gentleman recently wanted to change a bush at his home. D&D came out and was able to do the work the man could not do himself.
