What this job is about

Hey, gardens don't just one day decide to wake up and grow. Instead, properties hire groundskeepers to keep their gardens, grass and landscaping in top form. Working for anything from shopping complexes to commercial gardens and even graveyards, it would be up to you to make sure that the grounds always looked perfect.Most of your responsibilities would revolve around a green thumb, so chronic plant-killers need not apply. From spreading fertilizer to planting new flowers, trimming hedges and cutting grass, you'd have active work and spend most of your time outside. Ideal for someone who likes working independently and has a natural knack for making things grow, your performance report is definitely in the dirt.
