This may seem like second nature or that you have heard this before, but common sense is the best advice.

Do you want to be a gardening and tree service professional? Gardening and arborist jobs to work your way up as you learn and earn can be yours.

Some people love to garden and trim trees in their own backyards, but only as a hobby. Others love nothing better, and dream of having a career in working with plant and tree life. Many of you may dismiss the idea, thinking there’s no way to accomplish your heart’s desire. In fact, there are plenty of gardening and tree jobs you can get now. If your knowledge base consists of pure desire and experimentation, you may have to start at the bottom rung of available gardening jobs and work your way up. On the other hand, you may have skills which may be exploited to land you a gardening job somewhere in the middle. Let’s take a look at your possibilities.

There are probably half a dozen people, right in your own neighborhood, who would love to hire you for general yard work and tree trimming, such as mowing, weeding, pruning tree limbs, planting beds and cleanup work. You’ll have to hustle this work yourself and build up your client base until your income is sufficient to live on. Then you can quit your day – or night – job. There, you have a start!

Another gardening/tree job possibility is growing and selling plant/tree starts. Many people have done such a venture with the simple goal of making some extra cash and ended up with a full time business. Grow vegetable, flower, ornamental, small tree starts which thrive in your area. Price them right and have a yard sale.
