It’s more than just a job, it’s a careerYou can be forgiven for thinking that “gardening” was just a job that anyone could do, digging holes, cutting grass or placing a shrub in a hole. That could well be the case for other companies, but not for Root One Group, we pride ourselves on the expertise and professionalism of our landscape operatives. Knowledge is a wonderful thing and is available to everyone wishing to learn. Horticulture is a complex and versatile subject and one which takes a great deal of time to learn. Here at Root One, we want to encourage all our employees to be the best they can be and learning is all part of that journey. We offer everyone an opportunity to find their niche, whether that be with maintenance, landscaping, design, tree works or even in the nursery, there is a place for everyone within Root One Group.
