  • Description


    I am Australian, and I live in Waterford, Ireland. Waterford is the oldest city in Ireland and there are many beautiful walks in County Waterford as well as The Greenway which is nice to walk on or cycle. Ireland is a small country and nothing is really too far away so people who come to Waterford can easily do trips to other parts of the country, such as Cork, Limerick, Galway, Dublin, Belfast. I have been renovating my house here. Now I need ground works done in the garden. The garden needs paving, landscaping and a shed to be built. Someone who could lay blocks would be brilliant.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I am Australian living in Ireland and am happy to share a cultural exchange as I am quite sociable and like to meet and work with new people. I know nice places to visit in Ireland and know some Irish history. The hurling stadium is a 2 minute walk away and it is a 10 minute walk into Waterford City. There are many trains and buses to Dublin and other parts of the country. I can give advice on how to get around. I am also a teacher and can help with learning English.

    I would like some help to make my garden look nice. I renovated the house but didn't get to do the garden yet. It needs to be paved. The area is about 90 square meters all together (30 front of house, 30 back of house and 30 down the side of the house). The front garden needs to be done so that 2 cars can drive on it. A good part of the job has already been done done - it has been dug out and the stones are down. The side of the house is for walking and the back area is for an outdoor sitting area. The garden now needs levelling, then sand, then more levelling, then paving, and a low wall and a shed to be built. Someone who could lay blocks and is good at levelling would be brilliant.

    I am providing breakfast, lunch and dinner, and accommodation, in exchange for some gardening help Monday to Friday, for 3 weeks.
