Gardeners & Designers

The role of a Gardener

A Gardener is an essential staff member for any household with grounds to be tended to. A Gardener can maintain areas such as kitchen gardens, floral gardens, allotments, walled gardens with established roses, wisteria and climbers, orchards, ponds and conservation areas for wildlife. They will require additional help from groundsman or external contractors for larger property setups with extensive acreage to maintain.

In addition to Gardening staff, we also provide Garden Designers. They can assist with re-design, renovation or landscaping projects. Working closely with the client, they can discuss a variety of different colour palette and style options creating a unique and individual design meeting client preferences.
