Landscape Labourer Courses

A Landscape Labourer helps with the creation of green spaces such as parks, public areas or private residential gardens. You might prepare a site for landscaping work by clearing the land, levelling the ground or installing retaining walls and getting soil ready for planting. Landscape Labourers may plant trees and shrubs, put in pathways and install other features such as furniture, sculptures or water features.

Landscape Labourers should be physically fit and able to perform a range of manual tasks. It’s important that you enjoy working outdoors and are willing to work in a range of weather conditions. Landscape Labourers usually work as part of a team, so you’ll need to be able to follow instructions and communicate well.
