Find a Landscape Job
Before enrolling in landscaping school, you may want to get your feet wet in the bottom ranks of the landscaping industry as a member of the landscaping crew. The job can be long hours and hard work, but you learn the ropes and which type of people you will have to get along with (not just crew, but stickler clients). If you are finished with school and would now like to embark upon a landscape career, it is time to look for a job.
First, you may consider the cold call which involves opening your phonebook and systematically landscaping companies to see who is hiring. Hiring in the spring is more frequent. If you decide to show up in person, there are several helpful tips for making an impression. Arrive clean with a sturdy pair of landscaping boots. Convey confidence, know-how and the kind of enthusiasm that will one day win over clients. Work your way into the business, learn and one day you may end up owning your own firm!
