Worker Qualifications

Hear what a worker says

“Hi, my name is Mike and this is my 8th summer with His Workmanship. I’ve been good friends with the owner ever since our college days. Eric has been a good friend but an even better boss. He has given me many pay raises and end of the summer bonuses. He works with my schedule and gives me time off to rest. I cannot recommend His Workmanship enough.”

Hear what a customer says

“Eric was quick to respond to my emails and got me on the schedule right away. I had a huge landscape project that ended up taking well over 100 hours of labor. Each of the crews showed up on time and worked very hard shoveling river rock. I would highly recommend His Workmanship” – Candy

Hiring landscapers to serve Columbus and beyond

Many of our clients reside in the Columbus area. Some projects will lead to the accumulation of yard waste. Excess debris can be dumped at Transfer Station of Central Ohio which is north of Morse Road and N Stygler Road. Otherwise, the customer may agree to provide brown paper yard waste bags which can be left by the curb for the city to dispose.

Designate your travel radius

Each worker is able to specify the maximum distance they are willing to travel for jobs. But bear in mind, the further you’re willing to drive, the more opportunities you’ll have to work. Oh, and don’t forget, there will be adequate gas compensation for each job so the further you drive, the more you’ll be reimbursed for fuel.

Highlights of Columbus

Columbus has many notable buildings, including the Ohio Statehouse and the Ohio Judicial Center, and Convention Center. Established in 1848, Green Lawn Cemetery is one of the largest cemeteries in the Midwestern United States. The primary art museum is the Columbus Museum of Art. The Ohio History Connection is headquartered in Columbus. Columbus is the home of many performing arts institutions including the Columbus Symphony Orchestra.

His Workmanship is a Christian company

Our mission is to glorify God as we embody the gospel through our hard labor and our honest behavior. Our desire is to bring satisfaction to the customer as they seek to improve their property. We also desire to facilitate growth for students as they experience the business world from a Christian perspective.

Frequently Asked Questions

The more experience you have with yard work the better but you can be hired with no landscaping experience at all. Moreover, experience doesn’t need to be working with a professional landscape company. It’s just as valuable if you’ve helped your parents maintain their yard by raking leaves, pulling weeds, trimming bushes or mowing the lawn. No yard service we offer is highly skilled so being in shape and knowing how to use a shovel are what we look for in a qualified worker.
Pulling weeds and installing mulch tend to be customer favorites. Jobs that you’ll come by the least often are retaining walls and patios. Occasionally there will be sod installation but that’s not all that popular either. Don’t fret if you haven’t done these things before because the crew leader will provide guidance on best practices.
Since many jobs involve digging, spade shovels and gloves are the most utilized equipment. A shears for trimming bushes and a clippers for cutting branches will be helpful too. Occasionally the customer will allow you to borrow their tools, but that should not be expected. A good rule of thumb is: if you have a tool then bring it with you, just in case it may be needed.
The crew leader will pay your cut immediately after the job is done, prior to your departure from the job site. Sometimes this will be in cash, but often a payment app will be used. So it’s important for you to have a smart phone and access to the following apps: Venmo, Zelle, Cash App and PayPal.
Since you are essentially your own boss, you get to determine what jobs you claim based on your preferences. You can take into account the customers proximity to your location. For example, if you are only willing to drive 30 miles from your home, then that’s totally fine. A 5 mile maximum travel radius is acceptable too, however, bear in mind that the further you’re willing to travel, the more opportunities will be made available to you.
Each driver always gets at least $10 in gas reimbursement for each project. Even if a customer lives 5 miles away, you’ll still get $10 for travel compensation. The default is to charge the customer $10 in travel fees for each worker. However, when jobs are further away (such as 30+ miles) then the amount reimbursed goes up accordingly. If you carpool with other workers, then the driver will get more gas money.
If you don’t have access to reliable transportation, then joining His Workmanship likely won’t be a good fit. However, in some instances it can work out, like if you have a roommate or friend nearby who joined His Workmanship, has overlapping availability and is willing to carpool with you. Alternatively, you could get a ride to the job site from your parents or borrow a car from a buddy. Public transportation is an option too.
After you’ve worked several jobs as a helper, you will become an eligible candidate for being a crew leader. This role is reserved for those who are good communicators and have an excellent track record for customer satisfaction. Crew leaders tends to get offered more work opportunities so if you’re looking for regular hours, then becoming crew leader is a good position to strive toward.
We can work around whatever availability you have. Some people work near full-time (40 hours per week) and others work part-time (weekends only). It’s not uncommon for someone to have a full-time job elsewhere and just pick up some extra shifts at His Workmanship here and there. In short, this can be a side gig serving as supplemental income for some, or it can be a primary source of income with regular hours for others. The choice is yours!
