    Our garden is wild and untamed, but could be even more beautiful. It's very steep and rocky with a medieval castle (in good order) on the top. Olive and other trees need pruning or cutting back to reveal the castle, and paths could be made for easier access. Mend stone walls paint,weed, dig, sweep/tidy up etc. Give help with computers if possible/necessary.
    You need to have lots of energy and be strong!
