We live about ten minutes from the small town of Cheviot and enjoy a lovely setting in the country, surrounded by farmland. There`s a big garden, and the house is very comfortable, with good wifi too.

There is a general mix of work available but the main part is landscaping and gardening. Any landscape gardening experience would certainly be of interest, as we have some good projects in mind from building a small brick wall and helping with mosaics creations.

One of the major projects is planting out a wetland, and creating a track down to it. We`ll need a hand with planting and fencing, and so are looking for someone very practical.

There is quite a bit of general gardening to do as well, and for those that are interested, housework/cooking is also always welcome. However, if you are more interested in gardening, creating paths, bricklaying, fencing and those sorts of jobs, then we will feed you really well!

We also have some house sitting duties co... more inside
