Kia ora,
We are a couple who live on a 22 degree sloping section. We are new to gardening and landscaping and are requiring an experienced landscape gardener with knowledge of how to landscape steep sections, build retaining walls, rock retaining walls, as well as having other various gardening knowledge. We have a concrete mixer to support the building. The successful applicant will work alongside the owners over the months of July, August, September, October and November, to build retaining walls and gardening on the section. In exchange, the applicant will have a double room and one main meal cooked in the evenings, helping themselves to breakfast and lunch, from food provided. The photos show the section as well as the double room the applicant will enjoy, as well as our beautiful view in our cosy and lovely home, to enjoy after a hard days work. These months are winter and Spring in New Zealand, so working hours will need to be negotiated. The hosts are Kiwi and Swiss, well travelled and very friendly, speaking English, Maori, German, Swiss German a little French and Italian( when it comes to enjoying food from the 5 star Swiss Chef). The house is small, and cosy, in a beautiful part of New Zealand, known as 'Sunny Nelson'/Whakatu, close to National Parks for day trips and a vibrant small city.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Kind regards,
Dolina and Daniel
