Do you love being outdoors & working with plants and nature? Would you like to be active while having fun at work? If so, come join our team at Specialty Gardens!

We're a professional gardening company specializing in the design, installation, and detailed maintenance of ornamental, edible, and container gardens. We're looking for enthusiastic individuals to fill the position of Landscape Gardener on our team for the 2024 season. We work at some of the most amazing private properties on the West Michigan lakeshore and gardening is all we do! This is a hands-on position that involves physical activity, strenuous at times, working in ornamental and edible gardens and maintaining plants & flowers in large landscapes. The work we do includes but is not limited to: tending to perennial gardens, planting flowers, mulching & weeding beds, pruning shrubs, dividing & transplanting perennials, garden bed raking & leaf clean-up, manual bed edging, planting trees & shrubs, renovating overgrown spaces, and more. Our mission is to be the best at what we do: providing the most beautiful and best maintained gardens with friendly, knowledgeable, and dependable service.

Experience in gardening / horticulture / landscaping is a strong plus, but we also consider applicants who demonstrate a great attitude and a desire to learn. The ability to obtain a chauffeur's license and drive a pickup truck / trailer combo would be beneficial, but not necessary. We offer flexible work schedules (full-time, part-time, and seasonal positions during our busiest time of year - Spring through July), paid time off, employer sponsored retirement plan with company match (SIMPLE IRA), and opportunities for increased responsibility, advancement, and compensation. We provide uniforms, tools, educational opportunities, and we foster a culture of continual improvement and fun. Three paid holidays are also part of the deal - Memorial Day, July 4, and Labor Day.

We are looking for individuals with a professional and optimistic attitude, a strong work ethic, attention to detail, a desire to learn, and who can enjoy outdoor work in all sorts of weather.

We're located in Grand Haven and serve a clientele along the lakeshore 20 miles north and 30 miles south of Grand Haven.

Compensation is $17 per hour or more based on your skills and what you can contribute to making us a great company. Please apply by replying with your resume or experience information to be considered for an interview. We'd love to hear about you, so to really stand out, please include a cover letter telling us about yourself and why you'd be a great fit for this job. Come grow with us!

Pay: From $17.00 per hour
