A good gardener?

Can anyone recommend a good gardener? I’ve tried a few but when they don’t turn up, well you know the rest.

My garden has become a jungle with the amount of rain we have had and I’m almost finished with the mowing but am due back at work tomorrow, so the rest is out of the question for now.

Well all I can say is do NOT use A Cut Above! They are absolutely terrible. I also used a guy named Brian who came once and never came back to finish the job. There’s obviously a market gap in quality gardening services!

Give the job to neighbourhood kids/teens. That way they have to worry about remitting the GST, and you just get the work done.

Thanks for that. It does seem that the more ‘corporate’ gardeners just don’t turn up if they think the job is ‘too easy’ and not worth their time.

Maybe some teenage kids of friends nyssa? Always keen to earn a few bucks, and will work their guts of for $50 or so…

My parents have gotten Leaves Away to do their house a few times, great job.

There’s a whole bunch of ex-ministerial advisers wandering the city at present who’d probably be happy with a little cash in hand odd job.

Mark Carmody! 🙂

Theres a bloke called Darren on the southside who gardens to support his heroin habit.

You’ve just gotta keep an eye out for poppies growing in your garden.

some bloke called Alan does a good job casually if your on the northside Nyssa. He gardens to support his stamp habit.
