Who Else Does Landscaping???


Seems like there aren't many landscapers on this site. I've been doing Landscaping for over 13 years. Ive tried other trades and always found myself coming back to it.

Seems like the landscape forum doesn't get much activity.

Re: Who Else Does Landscaping???


We both have a background in landscaping. Mike is primarily a contractor/remodeler/mason these days, but I still play in the dirt a bit. Not as much as I used to; I sub out most of the work for big B&B jobs, and stick mostly to design and consultation. It is less than 20% of our overall business, unless you count the hardscaping (masonry, decking, etc.).

Re: Who Else Does Landscaping???


Before I became a carpenter I completed a horticulture certificate program and was a landscape installer for 4 years. Problem for me was I could only work for the company I was with for 8 months of the year. I truly enjoyed designing and installing, and hope to get back into it eventually. I would like to offer a total home remodel/deck design and install/landscape design and install service one day, but for now I will stick to improving one craft and continually refresh on the other. Soooo....long, unasked for story short, yes, there are other landscapers here.

Mow and go here. I'm glad I'm not in a "skilled trade" like banging nails, slinging paint, or gluing pipes, because then I'd be expected to work all year round.

I too like doing the whole back yard design deck, concrete, irrigation, plants, etc. Thats rewarding for me. You really have to enjoy all aspects of landscaping.

I'm one. Been landscaping since '74. I'm getting a little old but still in good shape. What is going on in CA? I'm presently a little aggravated. I've had to straighten out so many problems home builders leave that I am having to register and take the State exam for my home builders license. That is why I joined this site. Plan on trying to track down some experienced information along those lines next. Anyway, landscaping really took a nose dive in the fall of '08 here but has been coming back stronger and stronger each year. M1911 Landscape Architect

Nice picture. I like the over sized lumber and the fan on the patio cover. Where are you from?

Thanks, Indian Springs, AL which is just south of Birmingham. I own a small design/build firm. We only install residential projects. No maintenance. Visited CA a couple of years ago. San Fran and north. I think 12 percent of the U.S. population resides in CA but I didn't see them. Must be in LA. What a beautiful State, those Redwoods are something else. The heavier boards are Western Red Cedar, rough sawn.

Nice website. I like the pics of the Outdoor fireplaces w/ Pergolas. I haven't done an Outdoor Fireplace yet.

Check out this thread. It has a few of my pics.
