Help With my Gardener and Unsatisfactory Job

Postby JulieS911 » Sun May 26, 2019 12:09 pm

I have had to have a gardener for over a year now
He comes every two weeks and I pay him £15 an hour
Last week it was raining and I could see he had cut the lawn but hitching else was evident so I asked him what he did for two hours
He got very defensive and tackled me about all the dog mess in my garden
When I know he is coming then I go through the garden and clean up all the mess but he doesn’t always tell me when he is coming and then I feel embarrassed
He promised to come on Friday and I cleaned the garden and left the dogs in. When I got home he hadn’t arrived and has just text me to say he is not coming any more. I have a broken back so can’t do it myself.
Looking at the garden it is a complete mess and I hadn’t realised. The beds are full of weeds and it is in the worse state than it was when he started doing the work
I kept him on all year round in order to keep on top of the garden
What should I do as I feel he has taken advantage of a vulnerable person
