    What is the primary reason that you are working in this industry? Do you do it because you like it or are you in it for the money?

    I'm in it for both of the above reasons! I make a lot more money than I would if I had a regular by the hour job. I enjoy being outside and doing landscaping work to.

    I am in it for the money. Most of the time I really don't mind the work but I am not in it for the fun.
