Job Number: Assistant Gardener

Contract   |  Toronto, Ontario   |  Posted on Mar 26, 2017 ← Back

Thank you for reading my ad!

I am an independent gardener & landscape designer, in business for 4 years. I have a small team of three and would like to hire an additional person to work 35+ hours a week from April to October. 

If you've done any amount of serious gardening, you'll know that it's physically demanding, especially for 5 - 7 hours a day! Newbies that I've hired in the past are shocked by how tiring it is. You have to actually enjoy the physical part (at least a bit) or you won't last.

The gardening services I offer cover just about everything a home owner might need requires including:

- Designing and installing new gardens
- Re-designing & updating existing gardens
- Laying sod
- Garden clean ups
- Residential and Condominium Property garden maintenance
- Gravel & flagstone patio's
- Armour stone installations
- Small raised garden walls

I can offer a solid 35+ hours of work every week during the season (6 months), and am offering $12/hr to start ($420/wk). 
The ideal candidate will be someone who enjoys being outside during the warm weather, loves physical work especially working in the garden, are reliable with a great work ethic, friendly, and have a good sense of humour. I will provide training, as well as all the tools, gloves, knee pads, etc. You just need a pair of work boots.

If this sounds like you, please check out my website to get an idea of the types of jobs I've done ( Please send your resume to  highlighting any gardening experience (please include pertinent dates). If your only experience is working in your own garden that works for me too!

Many thanks for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you!
