A genuinely exciting and rare opportunity for an experienced and ambitious Head/Sole Gardener to join a developing private estate in Mid-Michigan (75 miles north of Detroit). The site of approximately 35 acres is currently undergoing a substantial redevelopment at the hands of a talented and visionary designer. The project is in the early state of development, so the new Head Gardener will join at a time where their involvement will be valuable and rewarding in equal measure. A generous salary, use of a truck, and a superb newly-refurbished cottage awaits the successful applicant. The cottage that is offered has two bedrooms, 2.5 baths and has been newly re-burnished to a very high standard. All utilities along with cable TV will be provided. You may bring your pets, subject to owner’s approval, but no children. We would consider the possibility of employing a couple.
The stunning garden has expansive views over rolling farm land and mature spruce trees to the rear, and by contrast will have a contemporary brimming water feature, formal and informal gardens with wild flower meadows, a vegetable garden, fire pit and sun-downer seating area. The design also includes a large formal pond, a 65,000 gallon Koi pond, and a woodland garden. Once complete, the garden will be a very impressive and diverse space.
The successful applicant will have significant input in the development of the site in terms of overall design implementation, planting, after-care and ongoing management. The privately owned estate will not be open to the public, but will require excellent attention to detail at all times. The successful candidate will also have input in terms of gardening assistance as the site develops, however, existing assistance is provided by way of part-time unskilled gardeners, to which you will be required to provide direction. A proportion of the job will involve working as a Sole Gardener at times.
Applicants must be very experienced and skilled Senior or Head Gardeners with a demonstrable ability to manage Under Gardeners in a private estate setting. Applicants should have a degree in horticultural. Spray certificates are desired. The successful candidate must be capable of looking after a large private estate garden as a Sole Gardener as well as managing skilled or unskilled assistants when required.
