Amenity Horticulture: The care and maintenance of parks, gardens and open spaces.

One of the most rewarding and diverse areas of study there is. You can make a difference to the world around us! Amenity Horticulture is a full time programme to level 4 offered at the Hamilton Gardens campus. 

Whether it be public or private gardens, parks and open spaces, interior plantings or urban landscapes, we will give you the knowledge, training and skills to contribute to this dynamic and exciting global industry.

Amenity Horticulturist’s are professionals within their field and advise on plant choices, oversee horticultural programmes, plan regeneration projects, and manage parks, gardens and open spaces. Creating and maintaining the spaces we use directly contributes to society and people’s wellbeing.

Wintec’s Horticultural Programmes can open up a world of possibilities.

Typically students will study the following programmes over two years to develop the skills and knowledge to be amenity gardeners, collection curators, grounds people or amenity contractors:

First Year

In the first year students will study either the General Horticulture (Level 3) or the Applied Horticultural Services (Level 3) (Amenity). 

Students who choose to complete their study after the first year will have the skills to work as a skilled gardener in this area.

Second Year

In your second year you will study the Advanced Horticultural Trades (Level 4) (Amenity). Graduates will be qualified to be a team leader in a amenity garden situation.

Higher Level

If you wish to progress to Head Gardener or Parks Supervisor and you have completed the Level 4 programme or have equivalent experience the one year New Zealand Certificate in Horticulture Services (Level 5) Amenity Strand is for you. This programme will not be delivered until 2019, subject to approval.
