Labor is an ongoing concern for landscape companies, and in the March 1994 issue of Landscape Management, Pia Curry, owner of The Hiring Assistant in Dallas, offered tips for landscape pros to show students they’re more than just summer help.

“Give them a feeling of being a part of the company, and try to learn if they possess other skills that can benefit the company, such as customer service skills or other customer interaction talents,” she said.

Curry added that young people could consider a career at their company beyond the summer — whether that’s a business major who might consider staying on in the fall or someone who’s not attending college signing on for a career in the industry.
