I have been offered a landscaping job but have never participated in a project of this size. Anyone know if there is an average price per hour that most landscapers will charge? How can I determine how much I should charge if I want to be fair, but of course, be able to get reimbursed for the work? The job consists of pulling out and clearing some existing garden areas, replanting new plants, flowers etc and then mulching the existing areas around new plants.
I am charging $20 per hour plus client pays for materials and I will provide reciepts. Is this is in the ballpark?
I found a landscaping laborer job that specializes in HARDSCAPING.
Is this very hard work? Should I be nervous for 10 hour shifts every day?
Any advice? thanks
My friend works part time in the kitchen at a retirement home, and I'm trying to find a better job for him. He finished high shool in another country and I hate to say this, but he's not the smartest person in the planet. He's a happy-go-lucky kind of guy, and I really want to help him. What do you think is an advisable job for him? We live in the bay area, if that matters.
a pimp? no thanks trulyhonest, but I'm trying to be serious here.
I've done mostly customer service & do NOT want to do it anymore. While I understand the majority of jobs do have some level of customer service, I am looking for something that isn't predominantly CS.
I really want to do Landscape & Garden Design, however I don't have a degree.
I've posted my resume on 6 different job search sites & keep getting hits for CS, even though I put a cover letter up saying that's not what I'm looking for.
I've been out of work for almost 3 months now & am getting very frustrated. Any ideas?
Oh! I can't do Landscape Laborer due to previous physical injuries, so that makes it more difficult.
And what other kind of job can I get with this certificate,the course includes plant and soil science and landscape design.Does it pay good, I dont want to start out as a laborer or a beginner.
For those who were in jail and are trying to be good productive members of society can't get a job because of their past. Very few businesses will give them a chance and not having stability in their lives will make it hard for them ( or anyone else) to feel like they can stay afloat with bills and daily needs.
I'll try to cut right to the point. Basically, I am in my forth semester at a traditional college. Going into college last year, I had no idea what I wanted to do. To be honest, I would much rather be out working right now that going to school BUT that's where I am looking for some advice. Okay, so ideally, I'd love to do blue collar work for a living. That probably sounds bad, but somebody has to do it and in my opinion, it would make me feel more like a man. Anyhow, I realized although I do want to to do that type of work, I don't want to be laid off, living off of unemployment or working crazy, super long weeks, like many blue collar workers do. I'm getting off track. So now in school, I am in the middle of an intro to business course and I do indeed like the course. I realized business is interesting AND not only is it interesting, it also is a pretty practical field to get into. So my question is, what major or what type of degree would be useful if I did want to someday not necessarily work as a blue collar worker, but maybe be higher up at a company. For instance, say there was a business that sold stones, mulch, dirt, etc., like a landscaping business. What are some things I could do at a place like this that wouldn't involve just being an employee but someone with a degree that can be more than the laborer. I hope this makes sense and the landscaping business was just an example. I'm thinking of any sort of blue collar work/business. Thanks for your answers in advance.
I've graduated a year ahead of the rest of my class, and I cannot start my college classes until the spring term. For the time being I need a full-time job. Anyone who has any suggestions they would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Not interested in online jobs, seeing as how they are all nothing but scams. I have never known of one to be legitimate, or a real opportunity in any way whatsoever.
"Help Korner" being one of these.
I'm a senior in college and am pursuing a degree in Marketing but I've just now come to realize that landscaping is my passion. While I may go back to school for a seperate degree or certification, right now I'd just like to know everything there is to know about the industry to possibly prepare for a business someday. What are some good sources or articles that have tips and basics on everything about the landscaping industry? Thanx in advance.
Could it be that the Americans who might lose high-tech jobs to foreigners have more political clout than the working poor, who compete with unskilled immigrants? What effect are such policies likely to have on our international competitiveness
Why might Congress be more willing to keep highly educated immigrants out of the workforce than persons with little or no training?
I am looking for ways to attain more masonry/landscaping jobs through general contractors. I'd like to fill up my year next year with work and was thinking of doing work for general contractors but unsure of how to get a hold of them. What would be a good way to get these types of jobs instead of just calling someone up and such. Looking to get 3+ to keep me really busy.
I am tired of working in an office - I like to be active, outdoors, or working in that area... doing something exciting and giving something back, maybe working for the National Trails or something. What jobs can you suggest I do, that don't pay really really badly?
A lot of you refer to me as a bloke or man - I'm a woman!!
American's cannot be standing around loitering and soliciting. Why is this practice in place for illegal aliens, but not American's ? Is this not a form of discrimination ?
Would they be as supportive of illegal immigration as they are now? It seems to me that being rich allows people to buy the privilege of not having to interact with poor illegals(except to use them as maids or for landscaping), whether it is through not sending kids to public school, not having to take overcrowded mass transit to get to work, or live in crime-ridden neighborhoods with many illegals, etc.

I have money to invest and I don't have a job so I figure I'll just start my own business. Any suggestions for what kind of business I should start?
Germany,France,England,Mexico,Venezuela,Brazil,Cuba, Japan, Italy, Spain, okay in short everybody has immigration laws. Even wishy washy little Canada has laws that dictate who can come to their country,who can move to their country,who can become a citizen of their country. Yet I never hear Canada called xenophobic for enforcing their borders. How did the US become the dumping ground for the third world,and who decided we had no right to control immigration to our country? Because we certainly didn't!
Im a current student and bills are piling up, I cant seem to find a job with pay good enough to cover my expenses. I REALLY want to do either landscaping or low-level construction work. Is there a specific way I can look for openings within these type of jobs or secure myself a position. I know that if I can use someone within the company as a reference that can improve my chances drastically and get my foot in the door. Problem is i don't know anyone with a job such as these two.
How much more would you pay to know your work was not done by i****************s?
How much more would you be willing to pay a contractor, a restaurant, landscaper, grocery store if they could guarantee that all of their employees and vendors were U.S. citizens or had legal immigration status?
Would this effect your decision at all?
I thought we were exchanging ideas not having a Spelling Bee.
