Experienced Gardener

An attractive opportunity has arisen for an experienced Sole Gardener to manage and maintain a beautiful traditional English garden near Dorking in Surrey.  The role is permanent and would suit a passionate, energetic and experienced horticulturist with a flexible and positive attitude towards their work.  The position is offered as a 4 day per week position, however, the owners would consider applicants looking for 3 days / week.

The property comes with 9 acres of land, a river that runs along one side of the garden and about 3 acres of which are woodland. There is a large gravel driveway leading to the house that will require regular maintenance. A large terraced area overlooks expansive lawns with formal sections consisting of mixed beds and borders, topiary, a variety of mature and young trees, and wildflower meadows. There is also a pond with a water feature, swimming pool and tennis court. To the back of the house there is wisteria on the property and a collection of roses.

Currently the gardens are managed by contractors and the owners are looking for an experienced gardener to focus on their garden and drive it forward. The new Gardener will be responsible for management and enhancement of the gardens in general as well as developing new areas such as clearing and replanting an overgrown kitchen garden, creating an orchard and redesigning beds. As it is a sole position, the successful candidate will be hands on and confident with their horticultural knowledge and have a good understanding of the seasons and specialist pruning knowledge to execute and carry out the role to a high horticultural standard.

Additional duties will be part of the role particularly in the winter such as fixing fences, painting rails, cutting wood etc. Therefore, a chainsaw ticket or experience using a chainsaw is required. Spray use is limited however, it would be useful if the gardener held the necessary ticket. Due to the rural location of the property, it is essential that applicants hold a UK driving licence.

Applicants will have extensive hands-on experience in horticulturally diverse gardens, good physical fitness, combined with comprehensive plant knowledge and experience working on development projects in the garden. A recognised horticultural qualification would be desirable, though not essential if evidence of adequate experience can be provided.

This is an excellent opportunity for an experienced Gardener with excellent attention to detail to join a beautiful private estate working for respectful and generous employers who enjoy their garden.

An excellent opportunity has arisen for a Skilled Gardener to join a large, semi-rural estate near Edinburgh.

Encompassed within 150 acres of grounds, the main house is surrounded by extensive formal lawns which also feature the large driveway and an 18th Century stone pond. The naturalistic gardens contain a spring garden and a large walled garden which previously featured as a nursery on the estate. It has now been restored and re-designed by the family and there are extensive mixed shrub borders, mature hedges, a greenhouse, mature and young trees all of which are divided by well-maintained gravel pathways.

The role is offered with a beautiful two-bedroom garden cottage on site, with rent and rates being paid for by the client. Due to the proximity to the main property and its walled garden, it will be expected that the Skilled Gardener will need to provide an awareness of security for the owners and the wider estate.

The hours of work for this position are 8.30am-4.30pm Monday-Thursday and 8.30am-3.30pm on Fridays with a half an hour paid break and two fifteen-minute unpaid breaks. On weekends, it is expected that the successful candidate will be required to water the greenhouse.
