    You might be a landscaper if your legs are all scratched up from weed eating in shorts.

    You might be a landscaper if you mow in your sleep.

    I just found out today that i'm a landscaper because i looked in the back of my truck and found grass growing in it. I've been doing a lot of work in the dirt lately and there a one spot in the truck bed where theres a good 2" of dirt....to day i notice that theres grass growing in it and it looks like it needs mowing :p :rolleyes:

    Yes and duct tape can be used for sealing deep cuts (lacerations) instead of running to the ER for stitches.

    The laces in your work boots are starter cord.

    you might be a landscaper if when you hit a hiden piece of dog crap and you're more upset that it is in the groves of your mower tires then the groves of your work boots!

    If when you're trimming the hedges and you think that Edward Scissor hand was a rookie

    when you're edging the sidewalk and try to do a better straight line then the guys that put the walk in did

    when you could drink water right from the hose no matter how warm the water is

    and last but not least, when you can take a wizz anywhere and pretend your adjusting the height of your mower wheels

    You know your a landscaper when you have the t-shirts from the brand of mower you use.

    You know your a landscaper when your favorite pair of sunglasses are made by stihl.

    You know your a lanscaper when you look at a new home being built and can immagine a entire landscape design/build for it in your head.

    Landscapin is definatly a labor of love dont you guys think?

    You know you are a landscaper when you name every one of your plants and tell your girlfriend not to sit where she is because it is blocking Bob the Bamboo's view of the television.
