Seasonal Horticulturist

Foras Studio is a small landscape design firm based in Brooklyn, New

York. We are seeking an experienced and energetic Horticulturist to use

best horticultural practices to maintain 20-25 gardens per week, with

some occasional installation work.


You will maintain a regular schedule to provide courteous and

professional horticultural care for gardens designed and installed by

Foras Studio. Travel between clients is at your discretion, and you will

work on your own after a short training period.


Each maintenance visit will involve regular and seasonal garden chores

(dead-heading, staking, training, checking irrigation, cleaning, pest

management). Seasonal chores and large projects (planting, hedge

shearing, divisions, restorative pruning) will be coordinated with the

partners for additional help. Large tools and required resources are

provided on site.


A thorough assessment of plant health is an essential part of our

services and will be performed by you during each visit. We strive to

keep ahead of problems by evaluating soil moisture and basic fertility,

identifying pest and disease outbreaks, and performing regular formative

pruning. Special treatments will be coordinated with the partners so

necessary tools and additional help can be provided.


You will update a daily record of your activities, observations,

recommendations, etc. for each garden on our cloud-based maintenance

database.


We are a small firm and do much of our own schlepping so it is necessary

that candidates be able to lift 50lbs repeatedly, carry containerized

plants and small trees, and perform other rigorous garden chores such as

cultivating and amending soil.


Compensation is negotiable, competitive, and based on knowledge,

experience and education. Please email your cover letter, resume, and

references to info@foras-studio.com.
