Hire a Groundsman

 

Hiring a groundsman is investing in the beautification of outdoor space. How many times have we passed by a park and appreciated the cohesive design of the landscape, marveled at the freshly mowed lawn of a school’s field, and gushed at the way flowers bloomed in a neighborhood garden? All of the greenery and nature’s gifts pristinely maintained are fruits of a groundsman’s work. 

 

Groundsmen are individuals who meticulously take care of gardens, grounds, fields, and other outdoor spaces. They can work in a variety of settings: public parks, universities, schools, and businesses. Groundsmen work on a part-time or full-time arrangement in the daytime. Because they spend most of their day outdoors, groundsmen have to work in all types of weather conditions and are exposed to the elements. 

 

For hiring managers, a job description reflects a position’s responsibilities, requirements, qualifications, and other details. It is the first means of communication between the hiring company and potential candidates. More importantly, a job description serves to interest applicants and entice them to apply. Creating a job description in a way that is straightforward and easy to understand is essential. Towards the end, a clear call to action will inform job seekers how to begin the recruitment process. 

 

Finally, posting the job announcement on various online platforms is a sure way of getting candidate leads. There are many hiring sites, social media pages, and even online groups where candidates are likely to see your job vacancy. 

 

Responsibilities of a Groundsman

 

The primary goal of groundsmen is to highlight the natural beauty of all landscaping elements. They maintain grounds, lawns, gardens, open spaces, and fields. Groundsmen are in charge of routinely inspecting trees, plants, flowers, and shrubs to check their condition and prevent diseases plants. They water plants, mow grass, trim shrubs, and apply fertilizer as needed. Groundsmen use hand and power tools and other equipment.

 

Groundsman pick-up debris or pieces of garbage off the ground. They make sure that all walkways and parking areas are clean and safe. Depending on the employer, groundsmen also paint park benches and playground pieces. Lastly, groundsmen use personal protective equipment and follow safety guidelines at work.

 

Skills and Qualifications of a Groundsman

 

For applicants who wish to apply as a groundsman, a high school diploma or GED may be required. An associate’s or bachelor’s degree in agriculture, horticulture, or landscaping is an advantage for those who aim to move into more senior positions. Prior experience in a similar role is preferred. 

 

As groundsmen work with equipment such as lawnmowers, snowblowers, tractors, and gardening tools, familiarity in using the aforementioned equipment is necessary. Additionally, candidates must pay close attention to detail and have great organization and time management skills. Excellent communication and interpersonal skills as well as the ability to follow verbal and written instructions are beneficial. Lastly, the ideal candidate should have good manual dexterity and be physically fit to work in different weather conditions, lift or carry heavy objects, and stand or kneel for extended periods of time.
