We recently received two WSB Reader Recommendation Requests for services currently more relevant to many of us than usual, thanks to effects of the wind and water (reminder, all RRR posts are archived in their own category here):
–Alistair is looking for “someone good [in West Seattle] to clear my gutters and install leaf guards.
–Manuela is looking for a “reliable/reasonable person/crew to do some yard work – trim back trees, remove old landscaping.”
Please add your suggestions to “comments” on this post. Thank you for helping RRRs be a neighborly way to share recommendations and referrals across the virtual back-fence!
5:10 PM ADDENDUM: Reader Katherine has a semi-related request we are adding to this post — simply a request for help that you may be able to provide. If you can help, please e-mail her directly (link is included in her note below):
I’d like leaves. I’m an organic gardener on very poor soil. I usually go around begging leaves about this time of year. However my best source, a yard with a huge old maple in it, was swept clean by the wind yesterday. What I’d really like is to pick up leaves after they’re raked and bagged. My health is poor, and I can’t do a lot of raking. But if there’s someplace relatively small where the leaves are deep, I’ll rake and bag myself. I’d definitely prefer not to have dog droppings mixed with them. Anyone with leaves to offer can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
