This position offers much in the way of challenges and rewards. And Blake Nursery, in business since 1977, is a great place to work, with friendly clients and hard-working, fun-loving employees. As a landscape employee working for Blake Nursery, your responsibilities will include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Load and deliver plants and materials to job site
  • Prepare site (amend soil, grade, etc.)
  • Install hardscapes (patios, walks, retaining walls, edging, etc.)
  • Plant trees, shrubs, and perennials
  • Mulch, sod, and seed

Other responsibilities will include general nursery work. These tasks are varied, but include unloading semis, standing up large trees and setting up irrigation, and vehicle and machinery maintenance.

Experience with machinery (particularly skidsteers) and driving trucks with trailers is beneficial, though we are willing to teach these skills as needed. As always, safety is a priority.

During the season, we generally work 4 ten hour days (Monday-Thursday), though this may vary depending on weather and work schedule. Work on weekends, as well as evenings, is also an option. 

Compensation: DOE

Start date: March/April 2023.

If this position sounds like a good fit, we’d love to meet you.
