Last Updated: March 8, 2020

We grow palms and landscape plants as well as running a landscape business. We have 7 hectares of land and there is always a lot to do. We have cabins with self-catering kitchen and bathroom nestled amongst the palms plus a caravan for helpers to stay in. Ambrose is 15 and is mad keen on cars, plus we have two Schnauzer dogs.

We are looking for help mainly with landscaping i.e digging holes planting trees, weeding, bagging up plants, putting posts in the ground etc for around 4 hours a day. We are flexible if you want to mix it up and have day trips. We provide all food, however we generally leave you to organise your own breakfast and then prepare lunch and dinners to eat with us.

Due to the nature of the work we prefer guys or couples.

Although we are a rural property we are in the heart of Auckland so you get the City and Country life and a base to explore the greater region with many beach's close by.

In the evenings Helpers can play pool, have a spa, sit around on the outdoor verandah or relax in the lounge with us.
