What does a Landscaper do?

Landscapers, or Landscaping Technicians, maintain the grounds of a property. Landscaping is an almost exclusively outdoor job, and it is one of the more physically demanding roles in construction. Most of the work requires manual labor. 

Landscapers work with a variety of equipment, including but not limited to lawnmowers, hedge trimmers, weed whackers, leaf blowers, and other power equipment. Additionally, landscapers work with shovels, spades, rakes, hoes, and other handheld tools. 

Common tasks include mowing and edging lawns, clearing areas of debris and leaves, planting and watering flower beds, removing weeds and unsightly plants, cleaning pathways and sidewalks, pruning and shaping bushes and trees, determining the correct usage of pesticides and fertilizers, and other general maintenance.

Landscapers can work in a variety of environments alongside other skilled tradespeople. Many companies hire teams of landscapers who travel to job sites together.
