An attractive and rare opportunity has arisen for a Skilled/Sole Gardener on a private property in York.  This role would suit an enthusiastic and knowledgeable gardener with excellent attention to detail and a varied skill set.

The property and garden encompass approximately 2.5-acres and comprises a mixture of formal areas with topiary, terraces, low box hedges, herbaceous beds and borders, mature trees, hedges and immaculately managed lawns, with a large flagged sunken garden with pool and fountain.  A stone fire pit area, a breeze house and matching round shed have all been built to an excellent standard of workmanship and will require basic maintenance, the latter by way of oiling, as will the wooden garden furniture on the terraces. 

Applicants for this role should have demonstrable experience of gardening to a high degree of detail, with good horticultural knowledge, experience in plant propagation and plant pest/disease management.  Extensive experience and confidence in the operation and basic maintenance of a full range of garden machinery is essential of all applicants.  A specialist contractor assists with lawn management, though the Sole Gardener should have a good understanding and experience in this area in order to maintain immaculate standards of presentation at all times.  Applicants should be physically fit and able to work from ladders with a range of petrol-powered garden machinery.

Candidates must be positive and friendly in character, punctual, discreet, reliable and hardworking, with meticulous attention to detail and tidiness.  This is an excellent opportunity for a Skilled/Sole Gardener to showcase their skills in a stunning private garden, in a beautiful part of the country.
