Garden/Landscape Maintenance

Save to Favorites

Alameda Boys & Girls Club

Looking for responsible adult to help maintain weeds that are growing through decomposed granite paving - they can not be pulled, as this destroys integrity of DG. Preference is to use weed torch, best on dry days when fire danger is low, so low wind, no rain. Very simple, will teach, but requires focus and concentration to prevent fire hazard. Does not require bending or kneeling, torch can be used standing up.

Other garden tasks also available if interested/suited.
