I hope your right. I have applied to all the major companies here in my area as well as a bunch in Portland , Seattle, Phoenix and San Diego. It is just a bad time of year to be job hunting in the landscape industry. Hopefully something soon.
Thanks for the nice comments. I love this kind of work.

Tim you have the right attitude about it and that along with the skill will take you a long way. Things might be rough for a while but keep your chin up and never give up.

You like the work, you do a great job. I agree with Supertiger

The largest lot is 24 acres on it's own little mountain top with 360 degree views. The property is bordered by BLM (Bureau of land managemant) public land on 2 sides. Every day there are huge herds (100-150) elk that wander down onto the meadows of the ranch and inbetween the homes. There are also a ton of Mule and white tail deer, wild turkeys, black bear and mountain lion on the property and adjoining land. It is incredibly beautiful country. You can probably do a web search on it. It is called Crosstimber Ranch, in garden valley, Idaho.

Sounds like heaven.. More amazing work.

Very nice Tim. Laying that river rock looks really fun. I didn't know you were a mason too. I like your large log work also. My brother in CO built an entire cabin hand peeled and hand notched by himself so I can appreciate the work that went into the entrance.

If I worked in that setting I would never want to go home.

I saw you mentions several states you applied for, have you considered Colorado at all? There are some award winning companies hiring.
