Landscapers create gardens and yard arrangements, serve as groundskeepers for commercial properties, and manage pest and plant control. Here are a few qualities that successful landscapers have in common:
- Detail oriented: It’s important to have a sharp eye and check things twice.
- Creative: Designing and maintaining landscapes often requires you to think imaginatively.
- Persistent: You work until the job is done and done well.
- Dependable: Clients and employers rely on you to arrive on time and always finish the job.
I am reaching my goals, thanks to the (Landscaping Technology) program from Penn Foster. I have had four job offers with this diploma and am going to open my own business. I recommend this program to anyone who loves Landscaping and Gardening. I have learned so much from this program. Penn Foster is great. They take the time to explain anything you need help with and they give you encouragement to do your best and praise your accomplishments.
