This is a part time residence for the client, but is quite a busy household. The client has very good horticultural knowledge so you will be working closely with her regarding the development and new designs. You will be reporting to the Estate Manager, and there is a Maintenance Gardener / Handyman employed also. The client has 1 very large dog, so you must be comfortable working with animals.

 

Responsibilities to include;

 

  • Kitchen Garden (size of a football field) – organically run

  • Topiary

  • Water Features

  • Fruit Trees

  • Lawn Care and Maintenance

  • Glasshouse

  • Bulbs and Seedlings

  • Garden Maintenance

 

The Gardens are constantly evolving so you will be involved in new designs and plans.

 

The household is very welcoming and is an ‘all hands on des’ environment. The ideal candidate will be a team player, someone flexible., helpful, and hard working. You must have excellent horticultural knowledge, and experience at Head Gardener level on private estates is essential.
