What is a gardener

When looking to hire a gardener it’s crucial to understand what duties they are responsible for and whether they are required in your household. A gardener is an individual that will take care of flowers, plants and all forms of vegetation, as well as all the outdoor spaces the principal owns, including a park, garden or landscape.

The functionality of green spaces and making sure these areas are maintained is the primary focus of a gardener. They should have expert understanding of horticulture and botany so they recognise the correct environments for each plant. A gardener’s duties include various tasks such as landscaping, watering, planting, clearing up outside spaces (weeding) and pest control. In comparison, landscaping requires a more experienced gardener as they’ll be responsible for elements like decorative features, installing fences and paths and general maintenance of the client’s outdoor spaces.

If you’re looking to hire a gardener, our experienced team at Tiger Private can assist you depending on your specific requirements.

What to consider when hiring a gardener:

  • Do you need short or long-term garden staff?
  • What will their daily tasks or bigger projects be?
  • Will the gardener need to travel?
  • Do you require the gardener to manage staff or will they report to someone else?

Our team can advise on these considerations with you and help you draft your job description to make sure you are hiring a gardener for your exact needs.
