This is a garden landscaping project

We are looking for a person who would be interested in landscaping our back garden. It is a small garden. It needs the topsoil removed and the garden turned in to a patio with some raised beds. We have a small green house that has already been assembled but it needs to be positioned and the glass inserted. You would be involved in the concept and design as well as transforming the garden.

We are really looking for someone with experience and who enjoys this kind of work.
We are Paul & Alison and we are looking for one a suitable HelpXer.

This place we have is in Oakham, in the centre of England. Oakham is on the train line that connects Stansted Airport, Cambridge, Peterborough and Birmingham. It is really easy to get to. We are also near Nottingham and Leicester.

We have also had many HelpXers come to stay with us before but at our place in France so look at Host number 7747 if you want to see what other HelpXers have said about us.


This place is in the town of Oakham, near the centre. It is walkable so we are not isolated. If you want to venture to London or somewhere else we are within walking distance of the train station. We are on the train line from London Stansted Airport to Birmingham. The train line also goes through Cambridge, Peterborough and Leicester. Other towns within the vicinity are Nottingham and Northampton so there are lots of places to go and see. London is within reach by train so you could do day trips or do weekend visits there.


It is a beautiful part of England. Apart from sailing on the nearby lake, Rutland water, there is a cycling track around it which is about 26 miles long. If you like sailing or would like to try it, you might get the chance to sail with Paul while here. Oakham is on the edge of one of Europe’s largest manmade lakes, Rutland Water.

We have high speed WiFi.

We are an English and Irish couple and we speak English and French (but not perfectly).
We have a dog, a Golden Retriever, (only allowed on the ground floor in the house) so it would help if you liked dogs.

We are not vegetarian. We both enjoy cooking a wide variety of foods including French, Italian, Indian, Thai and Chinese. We always enjoy learning new recipes.

We do not smoke.

We have a modern three storey town house in Oakham which is very comfortable. You will have your own room and own bathroom.
