Full Time - Landscaper Experienced in Tree Planting and Soft Landscaping
Here at Chew Valley Trees, we grow thousands of tree and shrubs both for sale direct to the public and to be delivered and planted. We are looking for someone to join our team to work primarily on the tree planting side of the business.
We plant trees and shrubs of all sizes from 20 cm whips to 6 metre tall container grown trees, so physical fitness is important. Though the focus of this position is tree planting, we operate in a fully flexible way, it is entirely possible in a working week to be working on planting projects, out doing deliveries or looking after the trees on the nursery. Previous experience supervising others in any capacity would be seen as an advantage.
We undertake a whole range of landscaping work, but primarily we plant trees, shrubs and hedging, ranging in size from small whips to large, semi-mature specimens. Other tasks would include garden refurbishment and maintenance, involving the removal of the existing garden features/vegetation and the replanting of trees, shrubs and perennials. Occasionally we install garden/estate fencing, retaining walls, patios and grass seeding/turfing.
The nursery grows about 300 varieties of trees in a range of sizes from 7L to 500L pots. In the winter we supply bare root trees and hedging. Work involves potting, caning, tying in the winter and spring. Irrigation and weed control in the summer and autumn. It is also possible the job will require some delivering of orders.
