About Us

Tranquility is currently seeking a lead hand who will join its residential maintenance crew and take on the responsibility of helping the foreman complete a variety of maintenance and garden installation tasks along with seasonal urns and pest control. This position focuses largely on maintaining plants and requires little in the way of lawn care. This job is ideal for someone who can work semi-independently, in a relaxed yet professional working environment. We are a small team so the lead hand would get to work one on one with the owner and have the chance to learn the ins and outs of the landscaping business. This is a perfect opportunity for someone who is reliable and hardworking and takes an intellectual interest in plant healthcare and aesthetics.
