Career Opportunities in the lawn care industry 

 

Do you live in South Eastern Michigan? Are you looking for a place to work with real growth potential? Have you ever considered a career in lawn care, tree care, or pest control? If the answer to the last question is “No”, that’s ok. When I first entered the lawn care industry as a lawn applicator, I hadn’t considered staying in the lawn care industry long term. I wasn’t looking for a career, I was simply looking for a job that offered me a bigger paycheck so I could pursue other opportunities. At that point, I hadn’t come to understand what possibilities the lawn care industry could offer me.

What I came to discover is that the lawn care industry is more than just fertilizing lawns. There is a large amount of different kinds of talent that is required to operate a successful lawn care operation. Here at Lush Lawn we are dedicated to finding talented people and elevating them through great training, work experiences, and professional development. We have a place for all kinds of employees; from customer service and sales to production. We also have many levels of management and plenty of opportunities for growth as new positions are becoming necessary each year. This provides a great opportunity to build a career.

The story of Lush Lawn so far is the story of a local Michigan business that has continued to grow, but that story shouldn’t be eclipsed by the many wonderful stories of the employees who have been growing right along with it. Many of the employees who now manage our departments and branch offices began their careers right here in entry level positions. Through diligent work and outstanding performance they have been promoted into places of greater reward, responsibility, and authority.
If you’re looking for a great place to work and build a career, Lush Lawn has branch offices in Rochester Hills, Grand Blanc, and Brighton, MI. Many career/job opportunities are currently available!

 

Here are some descriptions of career/job opportunities available at Lush Lawn;

Every applicator is provided with a truck, trailer, state of the art ride-on application machine (they can be a lot of fun), and several useful tools of the trade! As an applicator you develop a lot of technical knowledge about lawn care including how to diagnose turf damage, diseases, insects, and even cultural issues regarding the science of soil and nutrients. If this sounds like something you might enjoy, apply today!
