Landscaping and lawn care are two totally different professions.Landscapers
install the lawn and install the valves,timers and irrigation for them,they decide on and pick out and plant the plants.
plan and install the planting beds,edging,rocks,do the grading for drainage
install patios,walkways,pathways,arbors,gazebos,fences
overheads,ponds,pools,streams,fountains and
plant the tree's ,and apply the rock,mulch,soil
They are the ones that have done pretty much everything that a lawncare professional see's when they drive up to the customers house to give mowing and maint price.If it has been professionaly landscaped..
Lawncare professionals mow the lawn,fertilize,aerate,do applications,and maintain the edge,and sometimes repair and,reseed it.Blow off and go.They also mulch and do clean-ups and fall leaves.
Now I did not say anybody was "lower"than anyone else.
I just don't like these kids running around calling themselves landscapers :blob3: when they haven't paid their "Bust your ass" dues to this biz
and don't know how to do jack but jump on a mower and grab a blower and keep an edge.Though I am sure they do that well.

Wow! People were arguing about this same topic 5 YEARS ago on here. I guess some things never change.
