We are looking for an immediate hire of a passionate Landscaper if you are ready to see if the grass is greener on our side. As a Landscaper, you might care for the grounds surrounding a business or building using hand tools and powered equipment. Landscaping can include anything from simply pulling weeds to drawing up complex plans and using a wide array of horticultural knowledge. In this role, you might primarily work to improve upon an existing garden layout or work in one of the more specialized areas of landscaping. Some of the specialties a passionate landscaper might be interested in would be crafting water gardens and fountains (aquascape), installing lawn sprinkler systems and drains (irrigation systems), or designing practical solutions for orchards and farms. Does this sound like your dream job? We would love to find out more about you!
