Lawn and Gardening Service Owners

Work Environment

To many, working on a lawn or garden is relaxing, and the opportunity to work outdoors during pleasant days of spring and summer is enjoyable. However, the work can also be exhausting and strenuous, and it must sometimes be done on the hottest days of the year. Lawn and gardening service owners fully involved in the labor of the business may have to lift heavy equipment from trucks, climb trees, and do a lot of walking, kneeling, and bending on the job. Depending on the nature of the business, service owners may have to exercise caution when handling harmful chemicals used in pesticides. In addition, they have to deal with a loud work environment because machinery such as lawn mowers, weed eaters, and blower vacs can be very noisy. One benefit of owning a business is the ability to create a flexible work schedule. With your own service, you can arrange to work regular weekday hours, or you can schedule weekends.
