Garden Help

    I have decided to take on a massive renovation project of an old farm yard with surrounding south facing garden and small woodland area in the Bandon.

    I want to allow for areas for wildlife, re-create sanctuaries for birds, etc.

    Eventually I want to create a veg garden and orchard so allowing space for these.

    As my main monetary budget is earmarked for my house, I would welcome any help with clearing large overgrown areas (briars, fallen tree trunk, ivy roots), planting of new bushes and plants, relocating bluebell bulbs for my woodland area, clearing of clutter in the yard (old barrels, gates, etc), moving gravel, painting of sheds and gates and garden furniture), building a stone wall, creating steps from tree trunks, and lots more jobs of that nature in between.

    I only have very basic garden equipment currently whereas petrol /battery operated equipment (strummer/chainsaw) will be needed for some areas as they are a little away from the house.

    This is an on-going project for me of course rather than thinking it will be sorted in a day or by anyone person! Any help in any area appreciated.

    Thank you!

    I can give a couple of hours one Saturday morning or afternoon clearing brambles – it’s a perfect time of year for it.

      Hi Tara. Thank you for replying. Sounds great! Does Sat 4th Feb suit if the weather cooperates? I’ll take a few photos to send on as I have not looked about all winter.

      Kind regards, Ciara

    Hi Ciara, sounds good to me. I can bring my own tools too.

    Great! Thanks Tara. If you’re happy to message me your number I can send photos once I have had time to investigate the space. Hopefully I’ll get down there tomorrow. My number is 086 666 2298.
