Summary: Dedicated to, and inspired by, those blokes who drive around in muddy Toyota pick-up trucks with 'No Job Too Small' emblazoned on the side.

All garden work Iíll undertake.
No project is too small Ė
from giving your dead grass a rake,
to building you a wall.

Iíll lay a concrete patio,
bare lawns I will re-seed
and, if your shrubs donít seem to grow,
Iíll give the lot a feed.

When all your timber fence posts rot,
donít worry your poor head,
Iíll come round and replace the lot
with concrete ones instead.

Iíll Cuprinol your garden shed,
and prune your apple trees,
or winter-dig the veggie bed
with forking expertise.

Iím a landscape Leonardo,
a Master of the Sward.
So letís negotiate a rate
you feel you can afford.

All landscape work Iíll undertake -
for me, no jobís too small.
So let me start my garden art
by giving me a call.

Hi Mike, this is the sort of poetry I can actually understand. Great stuff - you should sell it to one of these Toyota guys to use as an add!
