Welcome To Unique Landscape Services - Applying For The Landscape Maintenance Lead Hand Position

Imagine this: You get paid to be outdoors, be active and soak up a large dose of vitamin D. You are having fun while you enhance your communities. You have a career path and endless opportunities available to you. You can see the value your hard work provides each day.

That is what landscape can do.

At Unique Landscape Services Inc., we have a group of like-minded professionals who are proud and passionate about their contribution to the environment and community. We are proud to offer a platform to foster growth and career development within the landscape industry. We are looking to share these benefits with more amazing people.

Maintenance Lead Hand Role: Our maintenance team enhances communities through well-maintained greenspaces (and has a lot of fun doing it!). Success of the maintenance team relies on the collaboration of each individual working independently. Our lead hands enjoy supporting the crew & crew leader in order to achieve the best results. They notice when someone seems out of place. They feel the most motivated when they are constantly learning and challenging themselves.

A Day in the Life

Each day starts by meeting with your team to discuss the objectives for the day. Once you and your team have ensured you have all your equipment/supplies, and your truck and trailer are ready for transit, you take off to your first site. The maintenance team becomes familiar with their properties, as they get to visit them each week. This is where you have the ability to master your skills, show your attention to detail and passion. Using different equipment such as trimmers, push mowers, zero turn mowers and blowers, your team will work together to beautify the sites. You are not satisfied until the site showcases your talent, passion and enthusiasm.
