Your Questions About Landscaping Jobs

Linda asks…

Landscaping jobs?

Are there any specific sites which advertise landscaping jobs?? My boyfriend is currently unemployed after spending the last 7 and a half years working as a Team Leader for a landscape gardening company – he is really down about being unemployed as he is the type of person who really wants to work to earn his living. So if anyone knows of any sites or has any advice where to look for jobs in this sector I’d be really grateful – i just cannot bear to see the person i love so down and miserable! (We live in the West Midlands – Worcestershire/Herefordshire…just on the offchance that anyone has localised info!!!!)

Tony answers:

Have him go onto lawnsite.com. It’s an overall landscaping site and there are tons and tons of contacts on there. If he can’t find employment there, he’d might as well hang up his jock strap (or gardening belt).

Make sure he simply signs in as a member.

P.S. Does he have truck? Why can’t he start his own landscape maintenance business after 7 1/2 years experience?

Daniel asks…

How to find residential/commercial masonry/landscaping jobs?

Looking for ways to find more jobs. Looking for ways to obtain/find residential jobs and commercial jobs in the masonry/landscaping fields?

Tony answers:

1. Work out a good area which is likely to have the sort of people living in it that will use your services, and will have enough money to pay you.

2. Get some nice flyers printed, with a contact number and maybe your photograph, as well as a nice description of the sort of stuff you do. Make sure it is targeted at the sort of properties you have decided on.

3. Get some smart clothes on, take your flyers and go round personally, knocking on the doors. When they answer, introduce yourself, explain that you are a landscaper or whatever you are describing yourself as and ask if they have any jobs they are looking to get done. If not, ask if you can leave them one of their flyers so if they maybe want something done later on they contact you, or pass it on to a friend if they are looking for someone…

4. Repeat

It may seem a lot of work doing it like this, but you will get much better results by introducing yourself like this than by just stuffing a leaflet in the letter box.

How can I find commercial landscaping jobs that are coming up for bid? (Tampa, FL)?

I have owned and operated a landscaping company for the past 10 years. I have been maintaining residential properties and I am interested in expanding to commercial maintenance and landscaping installation. I have insurance and the equipment to handle the jobs, but have no idea where to look for them. Is there a website or something that would tell me what jobs are coming up for bid so that I might be able to prepare something? Thanks for your help.
