-I will add photos of a roof I built on stone ruined walls on the side of a mountain for a friend of mine.
-My carpentry work extends into Landscape gardening.
-I have worked in both the construction and horticultural sides of this job and am as happy planting trees as building with concrete and wood. Also general garden maintenance is no problem at all.
-I have volunteered on an organic farm in Thailand where I was involved in everything from building mud and wood raised garden beds, to sowing seeds, watering, feeding, training, harvesting and repeating the process. Of course all organically grown and recycling every possible part of what's grown back into the garden.
