Senior Gardener Job

 

An experienced Senior Gardener is required for a valued client of ours based in Surrey. You will be working on a recently purchased 30 acre property consisting of a main house with 2 acre gardens, stables, and fields.

 

The property was previously run as a horse training ground.  The plan now is to renovate the entire property and grounds and eventually set it up as a 5 star livery business. This will be a long process and you will be involved from the beginning. The family’s home is very close, so you may sometimes be required to assist the Gardener there when needed.

 

This role had huge potential and there is a lot of room for growth within the role.

 

Responsibilities to include;

 

  • Assist in day to day maintenance of the gardens, fields, stables, boundary fences, hedges and pathways

  • Maintenance and upkeep of all lawns and fields, using ride on mower etc.

  • Maintenance and repair of tools, equipment and machinery necessary for grounds work

  • Apply herbicides, pesticides and fertilisers ensuring COSHH and other Health and Safety regulations are complied with

  • Prune and maintain trees, shrubs and decorative plants.

  • Maintain the gardens, including the flower beds, shrubs, tubs and pots, summer and winter bedding plants etc.

 

The ideal candidate will be flexible, experienced, and keen to take on a new project. You will ideally have Spraying and Chainsaw licences, as well as a tractor/JCB certificate. You must also be comfortable working with horses.
