My husband and I are in our 60's and would take good care of your property. We may have 2-4 relatives (adults) with us or it may just be the two of us. We run a small construction business and enjoy our adult children and grand children. Karen, who is a retired Social Worker/psychotherapist, loves to write and read and travel. Kenneth loves sports and plays on a men's senior league baseball team. We enjoy being in nature and city life. Our home is as chemical free as possible: no pesticides, drinking water--spring water--delivered and filters on showers ,as well as air purifiers in living room and master bedroom. We try to protect ourselves and mother earth. I have plants around our pool and elsewhere in our yard and would love to water and care for yours.
