The Level Green Culture Blog

Behind the scenes and insider information for landscaping careers and green industry jobs.

When there’s a new intern or a new crew member at Level Green Landscaping, they usually end up working with supervisor Jose Torres.

Send ‘em to Torres, and they learn the ropes fast. He’s an expert at taking people under his wing. 

Everybody should spend a bit of time with Jose. He knows how to start each day off right.

Level Green team members aren’t just great at landscaping — they look great doing it. 

Uniforms are important here. We take a lot of pride in how we look on the job.

The good news? We have a very generous uniform policy.

Ellen O’Brien, Level Green uniform coordinator and administrative assistant, tells you what new employees need to know: 

Cameron Cook and his girlfriend Kayley have a piggy bank they use to save up for vacations.

Then they scan the air fares, pick an inexpensive destination and set out for adventure. 

This tells you a few things about Cameron.

He’s smart. He’s a planner. He’s organized. He likes a good adventure.

All traits he uses every day as an operations manager at Level Green Landscaping.

As an operations manager at Level Green Landscaping, Jose Aguilar is in charge of 150 commercial properties, oversees five different crews and juggles a mind-boggling list of tasks. 

“Today is a different kind of day for me,” he says cheerfully on a recent morning. “I’m jumping on a water truck and I’ll water flowers all day.”

A member of his watering crew called in sick. Jose does whatever it takes to get the job done.

Plus, he really loves flowers.

Todd Mayberry was a golf pro for seven years before he started his career in landscaping. He made a lot of people happy.

“That little ball isn’t real easy to hit, even though it isn’t moving,” Todd says. “Once you do, whether you’re a 50-year-old man, a 25-year-old woman or an 8-year-old kid, the smile is the same.”

One of his students had never hit below 90. After a lesson with Todd, who helped him straighten out his swing, he hit an 84.

“That’s immediate job satisfaction,” Todd says.

Now, working in two roles at Level Green Landscaping, he’s still making people happy on nice green grass.
