Organization: Hedahl Landscape Deck & Patio
Job Category: Landscape Crew Member
Job Type: Full-Time
Experience Requirement: < 1 year
We are seeking someone who has a current WA Pesticide Applicator’s License, or willing to obtain one, to help with our Organic Lawn Fertilization route, but work on our construction crew the remainder of the time. Based on your expertise/abilities, your compensation would be different than just as a landscape crew member.
If you have worked as a spray/fertilizer technician applying only chemicals, and want to get away from the dangerous chemicals but still do this type of work, this might be a really good fit for you!
Our current fertilization division would involve:
-mixing compost teas into truck-mounted tank from 30 and 55 gal drums, applying organic granular fertilizers, mixing and applying safer and/or EPA exempt weed control products,
-driving a pickup truck (with tank mounted on truck)
-customer service, calling and notifying clients of your time of visit, discussing their lawns and gardens and any questions related to their yard
-other lawn services (not mowing) such as aeration, topdressing, seeding, etc
-record keeping as required
-seeking out new clients if you choose to help with that
And then the remainder of your full time position would be helping on the landscape install crews where needed.
Our Service area would be from Port Ludlow/ Kingston area south to Gig Harbor.
We could grow this division as much as we could handle, if the word spread and we shared more with the public about the benefits of organic based lawn care instead of relying on harmful chemicals… There is a lot of potential for growth here, for someone who has an interest and the knowledge to share this type of service!
This will be the 7th year we have offered this service, and we have not marketed it to the public at all– just built by word of mouth so far.
