Any recommendations for reliable and affordable builders, tilers, and some to quote on re-doing a garden?

What part of the island are we looking at? I know a good gardener based in the south east of the Island but not sure how far he will travel. I can also recommend a builder. He is not cheap, but the quality of his advice and work is 100% A tight Yorkshire man I know will not use any other builder.

...your location is important as traders will very often not cross into "other people's patches"

Hi

Interested in finding a decent gardener in the Binibeca area. Not just for basic pruning and watering but also someone who might have an eye for a gardening strategy - might be useful to also have a builder alongside as need to maybe do a bit of digging renovation to help with the garden strategy,

Many thanks in advance

PM’d some contacts to you,

We always recommend Iri who is a Menorcan builder who speaks perfect English, he's not the cheapest but his work is excellent, we used him a couple of times when we lived in Menorca. We have a friend who has a holiday home in Alayor and wont use anyone else,

Hi All,

Apologies for jumping in on this thread - especially to "HarrisonMatata"
"Interested in finding a decent gardener in the Binibeca area. Not just for basic pruning and watering but also someone who might have an eye for a gardening strategy - might be useful to also have a builder alongside as need to maybe do a bit of digging renovation to help with the garden strategy,"

We have owned in the Sant Lluis area for over 13 years, have just bought a buidable plot, having sold our previous home there, and about to start construction. We have a plot of about 2000m2, we are also loooking for decent gardener/landscape gardener, somebody that can plan and "knows" plants etc. - reliable and year round work.

FYI -Have gone through 4 gardeners in our time - seem to just like mowing the lawn and pruning - year round ontracts, but they were always surprised, when we turn up at the house unannounced. i.e.they were not attending year round.

Thanks in adavance.
CR.
