They may also be tasked with hiring and scheduling staff, assigning duties, and even training employees to ensure that they are prepared for the job.
A college degree is not strictly required for this position, but a bachelor's degree in botany, horticulture, or a related field is highly beneficial. These managers typically work outdoors and full-time with occasional overtime, and moderate physical activity is necessary to fulfill their duties.
