Apply Lawn Treatments
Landscapers are lawn doctors. They use their knowledge of turf management and horticulture to diagnose the cause of an unhealthy lawn and apply the proper treatment.
Maintain Mulch Around Shrubs and Flower Beds
Landscapers need an eye for detail to notice when mulch needs to be replaced or replenished. They need physical strength to carry mulch bags that usually weigh around 40 pounds. They employ turf management techniques to make sure mulch is spread evenly.
Develop Plan of Action Based on Landscape Layout
This is especially important for landscapers who work on a client-by-client basis. The faster they complete each job, the more clients they can fit into a workday. Most landscaping companies have at least two landscapers on each job, and they work together to tackle the property efficiently.
Keep Weed Growth at Bay
Weeds are an unwelcome sight in any lawn or flower bed. Landscapers use their knowledge of weed maintenance techniques to develop and stick to a regular maintenance schedule.
Plant Trees, Shrubs, and Flowers
Planting trees, shrubs, and flowers go beyond just digging a hole and planting seeds. Landscapers need to know the ideal planting conditions for each plant, as well as how to care for each item.
