Job Description for Landscaper

Landscapers, or landscaping technicians, maintain the grounds of a property. Landscaping is an almost exclusively outdoor job, and it is physically demanding as most of the work requires manual labor. Occasionally, however, landscapers will have to work in an office, meeting with clients, drawing up layout designs, and maintaining records. 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. Landscapers' common jobs include mowing and edging lawns, clearing areas of debris and leaves, planting and watering flowerbeds, 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.
