About this pro
I have had brief para-professional horticultural training at a zoological park. I also have training in rose care. my experience also includes helping establish a janitorial service within a company. Other than horticulture and janitorial, I enjoy spending time gardening. I like to create a neat and well manicured yard by mowing, weeding, trimming and so forth. I have some basic tools, but transportation of them may be an issue depending on the size of the job I am hired for. In addition I like to do internet research, not only on plant care but many other topics. At present my passion is researching the various elements on the chemical table of elements and their properties. I like the satisfaction of a job well done.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?No, my pricing is pretty straight forward. I charge $10 for any job outside of 10miles from Greensburg, PA, and .15/mile on anything past 20miles. After a one-time $20 consultation fee, I charge $10.50/hr. Basically what you can expect to pay is somewhere around $50 for a 4 hour job (including consultation fee and transp.costs)
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I research items as I need them. If I have a question about how to do something, it is at that time I will go searching for the answers. My continuing education is what I am learning from what is posted about the periodic elements.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?It was a natural progression. I just fell into this business because I am just good at it.
