Landscape Gardener Calgary

Landscape gardeners, in consultation with clients, work with other trades to carry out landscaping operations and design in a variety of environments. This includes residential, commercial and public grounds, playgrounds, golf courses, garden centers, tree nurseries, greenhouses and interior landscapes.
Landscape gardeners work with machinery and equipment ranging from simple hand tools such as pruning shears and sprayers to heavy duty trucks, tractors, loaders and graders. They may be responsible for the routine maintenance of equipment. Since landscape gardeners also work with pesticides and fertilizers, they must be aware of government regulations restricting their use and the toxic or hazardous effects the chemicals may have.
They may supervise or be involved in any combination of the following activities:
consult with clients on all aspects of landscaping

create landscape designs
provide advice to customers on plant selection and care
