Angie’s List Is My Secret New Love

Finding good help for home improvement projects can be a risky endeavor. After finally realizing our “mow, blow and go” gardener wasn’t up to snuff, I joined Angie’s List with the single hope that I would find a new gardener. Within a couple hours I had several candidates picked out. And within several days we had a new gardener that 1) I could talk to 2) showed up when he said he would 3) actually picked weeds 4) used tools other than just the lawnmower and weed-wacker 5) did not bill me for days he was not here. . . .you get the idea. In fact, he even emailed me to give me a heads-up that part of our lawn was looking a little dry. Angies List is a subscription based service (low monthly rates, or anywhere from $45 to $65ish a year on yearly plans). You can search the list for your particular area (see their web site for regions they cover), and find service providers. The wonderful thing is subscribers review the providers themselves and provide theoretically unbiased reviews about the provider. It is a great tool, and one that I have come to rely on heavily already. So don’t settle for second-rate service, check out Angie’s List and find the true “gems”. If you’re in San Diego, check out Down Under Services for your gardening and landscaping needs. Angie’s List – Find local consumer reviews on everything from painters and plumbers to mechanics and movers. Join Angie’s List today.

About Marc Lyman

Marc grew up under a brave single mom who "encouraged" home improvement on the family home. Early toddler gifts included a tool set, and even a cordless Bosch drill when cordless drills first came out. In grade school (give or take a few years), Marc's mom said, "We need to cut down some trees. . . . here's a chainsaw." A father figure also involved Marc in many home improvement projects, including a summer of home remodeling in Palo Alto, CA. Toss in some Obsessive Compulsive personality traits researching everything home improvement related. The end result: a genetically pre-disposed, socially sculpted home improvement machine! For his complete profile, please visit our About page. Really, it's worth it.
