Hi Ruth,
Thanks for posting your request and your amount sounds quiet fair, i am not a fan of hourly rates, as in the end you need a job done and you have a budget so counting every hour just gets in the way. So, i am happy to do the work starting on Sunday as requested and then finish off on Monday as needed. I have a background in horticulture and gardening and some pruning tools, if we need anything else i'll just pick them up as needed. Please let me if that suit you, Lena left a review for me if you want to look at it, as i'm also new to this site and Canberra but have worked freelance for 15 years. Thanks again for your post. Regards, Zephyr

Hey Ruth I'm happy to help you out with this task. I've done a lot of gardening (on this site as well as others) and so I feel I'd do a great job for you. I'm happy to do it on weekdays to fit in with your schedule also. Have a look at my profile and reviews and let me know if interested.

My quote is for a full days labour, if it takes any longer than that I'm happy to organise payment for that. I own and run my own gardening and handyman business with an exceptional eye for detail (which is evident in my reviews). It would be my pleasure to complete this task for you :)

Hi Ruth,
Please see my reviews regarding labouring for other garden jobs!
Based on reading what you are looking for, my offer is to labour for you each evening after work (my work is at fyschy so very close by) from 4:15pm til dusk or/& more hours on weekends, if convenient for you and until work is done and you're happy with garden.
So my quote is for the first seven hours over a few evenings or a full Sunday that will hopefully give you a gauge for continuing the work!
Hi Ruth,
Looks like a great block, if you can let me know by Thursday lunchtime that that will help me plans things.
Hi Ruth can you please post a couple of photos.

And another one. It's a massive garden. I'm not expecting it to be all done. I simply want someone to come here, get the dead stuff out ( we'll take care of rubbish /tip ) and once I see how much work I can get done in say the 15 hrs, I will look to get more done. It's really more of a labouring job, as opposed to landscaping or horticulturist type work. Someone suggested I try Airtasker. I'm not expecting something for nothing, I just want some help that I can afford.
Ruth how did you estimate time,
Ruth S.poster
It's more that I am prepared to pay for about 15 hrs of work atm and when that is done I will see how much work got done and then get more if needed. The garden at this place (we rent) is large and there are a couple of areas that we want tackled first.
Not a worry Ruth. All the best, for reference though, after Airtaskers fee, the worker would actually be getting paid $25.50p/hr

Thanks Alex. I didn't realise that fees were taken out. Possibly will have to use a different avenue to find some one, without fees and pay cash.
