Gardener in Houston, Texas

I'm an
Individual
Michael has successfully passed a background check on MeetAGardener.com - My name is Michael and I am seeking gardening and concierge/general maintenance opportunities so that I can remain active and healthy in retirement, as well as to continue to learn and spend as much time outdoors as possible. I can assist with planting, weeding, pruning, fertilizing, debris/leaf clearing, lawn care, seed germinating/potting and light (i.e. work that does not require professional licensing) carpentry, plumbing and electrical work. I am open to discussing other household chores/maintenance tasks as I would prefer to provide greater assistance to a smaller number of clients with whom I have a more established relationship. I charge $30 per hour with a 2 hour minimum per service call or a reduced rate of $100 for 4 hours. I have maintained plants/gardens for my personal pleasure for many years. In 2023 I completed a formal gardener training program and began working for the Hermann Park Conservancy shortly thereafter. I am in the process of rehabilitating/maintaining an herb garden in South Houston for a non-profit organization. I was an electronics technician in the U.S. Coast Guard and provided investment management services to high net worth individuals during my 30 year financial services career. I have demonstrated that I am equally capable in a technical/operational environment as I am in a client relationship setting. I am an early riser so I am generally available to work within and outside regular business hours and on weekends/holidays.
