How to post more photos than the rules allow – use collages. You can combine several of your pics into a single collage pic by using this free (you need to provide email) online tool. So by using this tool, each pic submitted may actually be many more pics combined. https://www.fotor.com/create/collage/

Garden and related garden work: We have no hesitation in recommending Samuel Pérez Pérez for any gardening work and garden related work. He built stone pillars, replaced the tiles to our front and rear terraces, added a bbq extension, in tile and brick , all within the time scale provided in his original comprehensive written quotation, which was fair and reasonable for the work carried out. He was punctual, very hard working, knowledgeable, tidy, trustworthy and honest. Problem solver, happy to communicate in English wherever possible or use his App. We will be using Samuel and his team again. It was a totally stress free experience.
