About the employer

We have two arms to the business, one a horticultural side (Master Gardeners) that looks after a number of large gardens in and around Devon and further afield and the other is landscape installation that specialises in large scale high end bespoke garden construction. Unique Projects sums that up fairly well. We often take on projects that are more complex and a greater scale than most can cope with and regularly prove that the impossible is in fact possible. A company (local) with long reach but a unique family ethic amongst its teams. To date no one has left and recently the company acquired another firm to expand its capabilities further. On the horticulture side generally within Devon and predominantly east and south although on occasion they will take part in projects further afield.
