I first became aware of Carmelita’s services because her husband and I were colleagues at the same school. We seem to exactly fit the profile of clients she had in mind. We are people who have loved and worked hard on our garden but as we have gotten older, and I have had particularly poor health, managing our home and garden was becoming too much for my husband.
It’s hard to describe how much Carmelita’s weekly visits have relieved the responsibility of garden maintenance, while at the same time leaving us ample opportunity to do as little or as much as we wish ourselves. Her extensive knowledge of appropriate fertilisers, pesticides and plant placement is brilliant – plus the amount of sheer hard work she does in four hours is astonishing. Naturally, people do not have to employ her as regularly and for the length of time we do, but considering that we are pensioners, we feel this money is very well spent.
