As I was perusing Craigslist for some concrete work that I need done on my house (please let me know if you’ve got a guy that knows a guy), I came across this delightful advertisement.Â Despite reading it 5 times, I still have no idea what it’s for.Â Word for word, here it is:

As best as I can figure it, I can either: 1) Get a massage in exchange for landscaping; 2) Get landscaping in exchange for a massage; or 3) Get sprinklers repaired, a retaining wall built, and a hot-rock massage all by the same company.
Note delicious irony that “All Estimates are Written in clear English.”
Any other interpretations out there?
