    Cool Light yard work

    Please, what's understood as "light yard work"? Does it make sense if we think of it as the work of lighting any kind of yards?

    Thanks a lot

    'Light yard work' means small jobs in the garden.

    Re: Light yard work

    "Light" yard work would probably involve mowing the grass, pulling weeds from the flower beds, watering the grass, pruning bushes/hedges and maybe raking leaves (depending upon the season). "Heavy" yard work would include things like planting trees or removing old tree stumps, rolling sod, and general landscaping.

    Re: Light yard work

    'Light yard work' for me is watching my wife do the 'heavy yard work' while I am rocking in my hammock, sipping a tall, cold drink!

    Watching people work is one of my favorite recreational activities.
