Why aren't you landscapemaxxing?

Take the landscaping pill.
>physical labor, compound movements
>get sexy rough hands
>get tan outside
>increase property value and aesthetic (if you are NEET, then do it at your parents house and get GBP and a chance to inherit it)
>develop marketable skills
>tangible accomplishment
>mastering and controlling your environment
>developing a sense of style and taste

I just spent the last 2 days installing a flagstone walkway and extending garden beds. Full body soreness that I never achieve from gym workouts. Plus I'm 2 shades darker now.
Thinking of starting my own little business, there's good money in it.

Why not turn your love of lifting and getting a pump into something that produces tangible rewards outside of the fitness achieved? Maybe I'm just not autistic enough for the gym, but I've always preferred working on my farm and land to stay in shape. The gym taught me good lifting form so I dont frick my body up, but outside of that it just gets so boring moving around weight without any real purpose.

What are some other fit approved activities or jobs that add value to your life beyond improving your physical appearance and health?

      you can have similar to ops pic anywhere in the world really (not in permafrost hell) if you just replace the plants with ones that grow fine in your area
      basically if you look outside and see plants, most likely you could see the same plants in your back yard. go around and find some native plants in your area that you like and do up your garden with those
      also get 2 beehives if you have the space

      Just do native species, a desert garden is actually superior because you don't have to water/weed so much, but you can still put in the landscaping effort to make it look nice.

        Looks really pretty. I've been experimenting with natives in my area too. Natives unfortunately get a bad wrap for looking like weeds but some of these "weeds" actually make very pretty flowers that the animals and insects love. Vs stuff you buy at home depot that the bees don't touch.

        Everyone and their grandma removes thistles, but look at how gorgeous this looks. And you barely have to water it

        Native are the way to go, get to support your local pollinators too.

        I’ve been growing so many sages and salvias lately..

        Calscape if you’re in California, also las pilitas nursery is great.

        Not that guy but I live in southern Arizona and I love the desert.
        But I absolutely hate big cities like anything connected to Phoenix.
        A small rural town is best.
        I like to walk and in ten minutes I'm totally out of the town and in unsettled desert.
        I will pick up a big stone, basketball size or smaller around 50 to hunnie pounds and carry it back home switching shoulders, switching to front low carry to high chest carry.
        I push it hard as I can before giving in and dropping stone on ground.
        Sometimes I find a nice sized tree trunk in the dry wash also to carry.
        All these stones are good for landscaping.
        I've also made my own sandbag from someone's pant legs I cut-off.
        One sandbag leg is around 60 lbs. I use the sand for walkways and plants. Desert gardening and landscaping is fun.
        Also walking into the mountains and hills, washes, I can collect young cacti and other plants to add to garden.

    I'm sorry but that looks like dogshit. You can tell it's a new install that the builders didn't even think twice about
    >plants are too close together
    >shrubs outside the retainer walls
    >trees too close together
    >trees too close to the wall
    I don't see any drainage holes for the walls so they will most likely deteriorate over the next 5 years.

    Shame. Probably cost close to 10000 for this set up.

        Poor design. If that was their idea they should have edged the lawn and made another floor section.

        >the rest doesn't look bad
        It doesn't for now. But those are all nursery stock sub 3 years old. They will grow to 3x the size and become over crowded in the next 2 to 3 years. The trees in the top section will decimate the wall internally in 5 to 10 years

          >Sod removal sucks
          for that small of an area you could have poured boiling water to kill the grass, its about a 10 minute job
          the day or so after you then go through with one of those old fashioned metal rakes that cartoons showed people stepping on and spend another 10 raking it
          maybe then rake every week or so and you get that for ez work
          what did you do?

              if you use a kettle (sub 3 liters) and go somewhat slow (take 10 minutes like i said) the water wont be boiling by the time it goes down to the level of the important roots of the tree
              its a technique ive used for a decade and read stories of it being used centuries ago, just dont be a moron and itll be fine

                It's still dumb to nuke the ground when you can do it by hand. Take shortcuts and you get shortcut results. Even if you're mulching you want healthy ecosystem at the ground/fabric mulch layer. Then again I'm very anti pesticide/weed killer as well. Some people don't care and we can agree to disagree

            That wouldn't get the depth needed for the proper Mulch ring.

          Looks nice and well mulched. I'd plant some shade bushes to keep her company. Maybe a bench and a bird feeder. Looks cozy to sit under her. Would be a shame if all that space ended up just being pure mulch

      Nice bro. Isn't the seating a bit close to the firepit though? Seems like it might get too hot sitting that near. maybe could add a bench or two above the pit

    In my experience, it's just another form of wagecucking and it's fundamentally as demeaning and exhausting as any other job. Sure, if you can be an independent contractor or start your own business, it's great. But most people won't or can't.

    My fiance and I just bought our first house and I couldn’t be more excited to get to work on the landscaping, bro. Just waiting to finish some of the renovations inside. I’ve spent a lot of summer landscaping for money and have grown a serious appreciation for it.

    homies be like "working outside is le based rough hand max" have you seen what roofers and landscapers look like after the age of 35? What's wrong with working a normal job and just.....going outside like a normal human being during your time off? I worked outdoors as an instrument tech at a gas plant for a few years and working in 110 degrees on top of turbo compressors in the summer and freezing your ass off in a man lift in 12 degrees chipping ice from control valves gets old really fricking quick. I'll take my climate controlled office and work from home days from now on thanks.
