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.
