Gardener?

Post by LolaBeltran » Sat Jun 25, 2016 10:17 am

(I have searched the forum and not found any recent references to this topic.)

We need a part time gardener, specifically a guy with a truck to take away the cuttings, tree limbs and vegetation trimmings which pile up every week. (We are able to manage the easier garden maintenance work around the place.)

As well, we want someone to do the heavier work involving climbing . . .like trimming mango tree limbs, palm trees etc for one morning a week. This might include some general sweeping, raking and cleaning.

We would appreciate references to individuals or an agency that might help us with this.
Thanks!

I have a relatively large garden with trees, bushes and lawn. My gardener takes care of everything, comes 3 times per week usually for an hour each time. Once a month they mow the lawn and occasionally spend a couple hours as needed. They also keep everything watered. Cost is 2000 per month.

Thanks for previous suggestions. . .but still looking.
We live north of town, so someone already living or working in the airport area would be a good fit.

Specifics: needs to come once a week for a couple hours (on Monday afternoon would be ideal.)
Needs to have a truck or some way to take away garden cuttings, limbs etc.
Needs to have electric hedge clippers & lawn cutter.
Needs to have a little English to go with my little Thai.
Needs to be able to climb & trim tall trees.
Needs to be reliable.

We plan to be very generous in paying the right person!

Thanks again for any suggestions or links!

My Thai, good, friends and builders (husband and wife team) may be interested. They look after my garden and any other property maintenance issue. The wife does speak a little English but having dealt with me for a very long time are used to communicating with us foreigners. They are located in soi 6, so very close to airport. He as a builder can handle most other electrical/plumbing/landscaping issues. If you are interested I can make the intro. PM me if of any use.

Thanks for the suggestions here! Much appreciated. We did find and are trying out a gardening service. Early days yet but they seem to be very professional and well organized.

Anyone who knows a gardener who'd do it 2x per month for under 2K?
