    I am looking to start my own lawn care company someday but right now I am within 2 years away from obtaining my degree so I'm looking to get a job next summer with a lawn service/landscaper to get a feel for it. What is the best way to get employed? Should I just call around and ask for a job? If so, when should I do that? Grass cutting season starts 3rd week in April here.

    Same as obtaining any job.

    Apply.
    Follow-up.
    Network.
    Call.
    Stop in.
    Ask current employees for referral.
    Answer "Wanted" ads in paper and on craigslist.
    So on.
