    Hello Lachlan,

    We’ve met various times and places and I think you would remember me by sight. The other day my friends Heather and Stuart Carter from Macquarie HIlls invited me over to show me their new enviro-friendly extension, solar set-up and garden. I also was impressed by their veggie garden and they told me they’d employed you to help with it.

    I need some help with my whole garden because of my increasingly limiting physical ailments although don’t have much money. It will overtake me if I don’t have help so wondered if you would come to Cardiff South and what you would charge to advise on/ do what it needs.
    I have horticultural/permie training and since moving her 3 yrs ago have begun designing and planting a slightly awkward area.

    Look forward to hearing from you,
    Suzanne Reaney

    1. Hi Suzanne,

      Oh dear! So sorry about the very belated reply. Have so much going on and so many versions of correspondence to check that I havn’t logged in here for ages. If in the future you dont hear from me, email or phone are more immediate contact methods. 🙂
      I can of coarse come and give you some assistance. If cost is prohibitive can help with design/consult then get a cheaper ‘hand’ to help with the Physical stuff. It is up to you!
      Anyway, send me your phone number and i’ll give you a call for a chat.
