We offer careers in the following positions:

You’d make a great Hardscaping Crew Leader if…

You like building things, but not the same thing every day. You like physical work and the sense of accomplishment that comes from seeing a project through from beginning to end, and then moving on to a new and different project. You prefer being outdoors from spring to fall, rather than being behind a desk all day, every day.

Co-workers say you’re easy to get along with, but when a job needs done you dig in, setting an example that encourages others to do the same. You like working as part of a small crew of great men and women, some veteran and some new. Customers would say you are polite and a great communicator when they have a question. And you know how to clean up after yourself.

You’re looking for a career, not just a job. A place to develop and grow, not just bring home a pay cheque. You might like to further your skills and understanding by taking courses paid for by your employer.

People in the community often see you around town, driving from one project to another in a company truck. You like having access to a reliable vehicle while being an ambassador of your employer.

You’re looking for a competitive, living wage with the opportunity to earn bonuses. For you, performance evaluations don’t cause anxiety. You know that your work speaks for itself and warrants consideration for a raise next year.

As much as you enjoy your work, you also have a personal life, and appreciate an employer who can be flexible and also values work-life balance. While you may work some Saturdays, you like that weekend work is kept to a minimum.

If this sounds like you and you’re interested to learn more, read on. If this sounds like someone you know, please share this opportunity with them.

We are currently seeking a crew leader to join our hardscaping team. We are looking for a long-term team member interested in career growth and a progressive environment.

The position duties will include installation, maintenance and repair of ponds and water features, patios and pathways (interlocking brick), retaining walls, etc.

In addition to the general qualifications listed above, please note the following role-specific qualifications for this position:

  • ability to read and interpret blue prints
  • time management skills
  • use of laser equipment
  • ability to operate mini-ex/skid steer

The remuneration will be $20 to $30/hour (commensurate with experience and skill level), with opportunity for bonus. Contract runs from April to November depending on weather. Weekly schedule is Monday to Friday (10-hr shifts) with minimal Saturday work. Expected start date is Spring 2020.
