Default Arabian Ranches- Help Required

My wife and I are moving to Arabian Ranches (Al Reem III) at the end of this week. I should be grateful for any suggestions and guidelines on price for the following:

1. A cleaner- we would probably want a 4 hour session once a week;

2. A gardener- our new garden has certainly lacked some TLC and we will need to get someone in to do a general tidy up, lay some gravel and also arrange for regular watering etc; and

3. A dry-cleaner/ironing company.

In Springs we have a chap who washes and valets our cars on a Saturday, does someone offer a similar service in the Ranches?

I look forward to receiving your responses.

Thanks in advance.

1. Cleaner not sure what the going rate is these days but I think most of the agencies are about 30dhs an hour

2. Gardener not sure of prices as we have a sprinkler system but I'm sure there will be plenty of guys hanging around when you move in your can ask

3. Dry cleaning/ironing - you can get the maid service to do ironing or there is a dry cleaners at the shops in AR
