Pinewood Studios based company providing natural set dressing for film and TV sets

Requirements of the Job Role

Greensmen* are responsible for procuring, placing, and maintaining any vegetation (foliage and other greenery) on film sets.

Greensmen are specialist advisors who may or may not be employed on films, depending on the production budget and script requirements.

Greensmen use foliage, trees and greenery either to transform a location to fit script requirements, or to build a landscape in a studio. Projects vary enormously.

Depending on individual production requirements, Greensmen may have to outfit a conservatory, landscape the lawns of a period mansion, create alien swamps or medieval forests.

Greensmen must expect to work long and irregular hours in all kinds of weather and terrain.

Greensmen may oversee a team which includes Labourers, skilled labourers, landscapers, Greensmen level 1, level 2, level 3, Standby Greensmen, and Nurserymen.
