Nah!! What you need is a whole heap of "Boys toys" to make it fun... Get one of those Blower/Vac things you see people walking around the garden with, Ride on Lawn-Mower and Some kinda fancy edge trimmer, That way It's like you're playing in your garden... Our lawnmower died once and the grass was about 3 and a half feet high so I went out with the petrol line trimmer and was 'sweeping' back and forth with it making patterns in the grass, made it seem as if I were 'playing' and not 'working'
two words: cleaning lady. or cleaning guy, but we had a cleaning guy once for my apt in NYC and he ended up going through my female roomates laundry one too many times. creepy. and he wasnt as "clean" as the women.
