Job Description for Gardener

A gardener generally works as a professional contractor or under direct employment by a facility with large landscaping resources and needs. This person generally tends to the upkeep and care of the landscape design on an ongoing basis. Typically, a gardener doesn’t build or create, but rather helps maintain the current landscape design and environment. The gardener is likely expected to attend to the upkeep of the grounds under his or her care. This not only includes regular mowing, but also setting up proper watering schedules, trimming, weed care, and fertilizing. Additionally, the gardener cares for all flowering plants in the landscape design, assessing any environmental difficulties observed and acting proactively to treat them. During appropriate seasons, the gardener is responsible for removing leaves, adding mulch, and doing any additional planting. As it becomes necessary, the gardener should make recommendations for improving or enhancing the design as he or she sees fit.
