Whether you have previously worked in the landscape industry or you’re someone who wants to try a new industry like landscaping, you might be wondering what’s involved with landscape design and installation jobs in the Greater Chicago area.
We understand. Every region and every company is different, and even if you’ve had a job similar to this one, you might not know the unique facets of that role at a company like KD Landscape.
Whether you’re serious about applying for a job or you’re just looking for more information, you should have all the details at your fingertips so you can make an informed decision. And one of the best ways to show you what it's like working at KD Landscape is to share some of the main reasons our employees love working with us.
Why Our Team Loves Working With Us
We’re so proud of our team at KD Landscape for the work they do everyday.
And we’ve retained an amazing team because we give them a chance to shine when they create amazing landscapes in Greater Chicago.
And they’ve reciprocated by telling us why they like working with us so much. Here are the 4 top reasons they stick with us.
1. A Professional Work Environment
Landscape design and installation is an exciting field. And to plan, design, and create amazing Greater Chicago outdoor spaces takes true talent and dedication by a professional team.
Our team members at KD Landscape work together and learn from each other, enjoying the quality landscapes they create. They take pride in the local and national awards they’ve won for this work as well.
2. Above Average Compensation
In addition to providing our employees with uniforms, jackets, sweatshirts, and work boots, we pay our workers at the high end of the pay scale. Additionally, we’ll offer continuing education and industry involvement opportunities.
This is because we want to attract and retain the best in the field. We also offer office staff and project managers health care benefits, and anyone at foreman level or higher paid vacation days.
We want to reward quality work, and this is a way for us to do that to ensure our employees’ happiness.
3. Year-Round Employment
It’s no mystery that Greater Chicago winters can get pretty cold, and that means there aren't a lot of green plants to care for. As such, some landscape companies only hire their major workforce through the growing season portion of the year. And those employees then have to find another way to supplement their income during those cold months.
But at KD Landscape we know having year-round work is important to people when it comes to supporting their families.
Since we provide a wide range of services throughout the year, we’re able to keep our employees throughout the winter months as well as during the growing season.
4. A Local Company With Community Recognition
Since KD Landscape is a local company in Greater Chicago, we care about our local community.
As a result, we like to take part in community events to support our municipalities. That means, it’s not unusual to hear our company name as a list of sponsors at school events or donating trees to local organizations. We’ve also volunteered a day of work tending to the landscape in nearby sites, such as local cemeteries.
Our employees love the fact that they get a chance to better the community in which they live and work.
