In the context of gardening services, this came as a surprise to me:
“In a climate where consumers are choosing to make the most of their home and assets, some specialist recruitment agencys for high calibre domestic staff, have seen a 25% year on year increase in demand for gardeners.”
In these times of credit crunch and financial squeeze it’s surprising to say the least. Nonetheless, Stephanie Rough, of domestic staff agency Greycoat Placements Director says:
`Employing a gardener is no longer the preserve of the wealthy. Many of us lack the inclination or have such sophisticated aspirations for our gardens that we end up in desperate need of help. The recession has also meant that homeowners who might have previously had time to tend to their green spaces, are no longer able to do so, and require another pair of hands to maintain and enhance their garden retreats.`
Greycoat Placements will be exhibiting at this year`s RHS Chelsea Flower Show from the 19th-23rd May.
