Urban Plant Care Technician


$20-23 per hour; benefits available after three months.

Foliaire, a Boston-based Landscape Design / Build company, has an immediate opening for a plant care/horticulture/gardening position. Some experience is mandatory in professional landscaping or any previous horticultural, agricultural, or plant care. We want people with a good attitude who enjoy doing great work with like-minded teammates. Knowledge of general construction tools, plant material, irrigation, or proper pruning skills is a plus! You should be self-motivated, detail-oriented, and able to work independently and in a group.


No vehicle is required, but you must have a valid driver’s license. You will get around town on your own via public transportation or via a company-provided bicycle.

You must be capable and enjoy working outside and safely doing physical work. Not every day, but some days, we’ll require you to lift moderately heavy materials – such as soil or plants – from place to place for several hours in a safe and controlled manner. Starting pay is commensurate with previous experience.


Locally owned and operated in Boston’s South End, Foliaire has provided excellence in design, installation and care of prestigious greenscapes since 1980.

Throughout Foliaire’s history, we have carefully controlled our growth to realize our goal of superior quality service rather than large volume. We have always been committed to providing the highest quality, good, cost-effective, and personalized services.

The Foliaire team is thorough, creative, and comprehensive in applying our diverse expertise to match our client’s specific needs. We handle various projects, from the simplest to the most complex and sophisticated.

Foliaire is proud of its reputation with both the corporate and residential communities. We have received numerous environmental and design awards for both new and existing projects within the Boston metro area, and have appeared in several publications including Architectural Digest, House and Garden, Horticulture and Interiorscape.
