Conventional gardening has a series of problems similar to those in conventional agriculture, albeit at a smaller scale: they tend to use weed killers, insecticides, fungicides, etc. that have an environmental impact, exotic plants are used that displace native plants and a lot of water is used in places where it is scarce.

Gardeners work in landscaped spaces of urban areas and create and maintain gardens. They must fulfill several basic criteria: use indigenous plants that are better adapted to the site's conditions; employ a diversity of plants and respect natural associations; cover all of the ground; do not use chemical fertilisers and let leaves that fall rot to be employed as natural fertilisers; do not use chemical weed killers or fungicides; save water through the selection of species for the space; reduce maintenance and machinery, also attained by using native plants; take advantage of solar energy through streetlights powered by this type of energy; etc.


  • Correctly interpret and execute oral, written and mapped instructions.
  • Prepare simple budgets and plan the work.
  • Select ornamental indigenous plant species.
  • Carry out nursery reproduction, propagation and production operations.
  • Perform the tasks required to plant trees, bushes and flowers, as well as maintenance tasks.
  • Perform tasks for producing plant fertiliser and apply the correct doses in nurseries and gardens.
  • Install low-consumption watering systems.
