Landscape assistant needed, part time

If you crave routine and doing the same thing day after day, this probably isn’t the job for you. We’re a small landscape design firm looking for an assistant to help us create amazing landscapes. What we need is a Jack- or Jill – of all trades to assist the owner it getting it all done. The following tasks will be a key part of your role with Revolutionary Gardens:

FIELD TASKS

  • Measure properties for new landscape design clients, including plant inventory, shooting grades if needed, and extensive photographing of existing conditions
  • Assist in layout on jobsites
  • Pick up materials at suppliers and deliver to job sites
  • Complete small punchlist projects for clients as needed (planting of individual plants, swapping out containers, etc)

OFFICE TASKS

  • Read landscape plans and compile material takeoffs in Microsoft Excel
  • Update listings in Plants Map for client sites
  • Create load lists for upcoming installations, including crew routing for vendor pickup
  • Communicate effectively with clients and vendors via phone and email as needed
  • Assist with processing new leads and setting appointments
  • Assist the owner with research and compilation of plant lists and more as needed

This is a great opportunity for someone looking to learn more about landscape design and installation. Although you’ll start out focused on some of the more basic tasks, I would love to encourage this employee to grow into a landscape designer role with Revolutionary Gardens.
