Snapshot into Social Enterprise: Property Services

Here’s more on the opportunities available through our Property Services.

Garden maintenance specialists

We provide a wide range of grounds and gardens maintenance services across the Perth Metro region.

Our teams operate from Mandurah and Midvale and specialise in weeding, watering, pruning, and mulching. They also do garden installation and seasonal management.

Employees learn many techniques in order to ensure the property is well maintained all year round.

The team

Both teams have a supportive staff and are managed by two passionate supervisors with plenty of experience.

Property Services Manager Craig is based at Midvale and enthusiastic about providing his team the knowledge needed for future career development. And Mandurah Supervisor Sue is there to encourage everyone to try their best and take pride in their achievements.

The daily tasks

Our team members perform a range of duties depending on the contracts received. Some activities that you may assist with include:

Garden maintenance

This involves:

  • pruning and shaping of plants
  • trimming and hand weeding
  • garden fertilising
  • soil improvement

These tasks are performed regularly to maintain a garden or property in the long-term.

Using various tools and machinery

You will be trained by qualified staff to use tools to assist with garden maintenance. Employees start with hand tools and rakes, and after that move onto power tools like hedge trimmers, brush-cutters, chainsaws, and lawn mowers.

Managing maintenance systems

Employees set and monitor reticulation systems and repair any faults or damaged sprinklers.

Horticultural knowledge

Team members learn to identify different plants and weeds. In addition to this, some are trained and licenced in herbicide application with the Department of Health.

Working and growing together

At Property Services, employees learn industry techniques and work alongside horticultural experts which can lead to further qualifications. But regardless of career goals, our team work together to support one another.
