Reason for leaving:
My employer decided to sell his equipment and quit landscaping.
Job description:  This was a small company run by Mr. Flaker, with usually around 5 people working for him at any one time.  The jobs we did include: yard clean-ups, (mulching, weeding, planting) brick pavers design and installation, tree/stump removal, burying down-spouts, boulder wall installation, sod removal and installation, and concrete removal.   For my third year with this company,  I acted as site supervisor.  This meant that I was in charge of 3-5 people while my boss was not at the site, in addition to the work I did before.  I was also responsible for showing our 3-4 new workers how to do much of the work.

Applicable skills learned at this job:  I have experience with the use of the following: power saws (wet and dry, for cutting bricks), power tampers, jackhammers, leaf blowers, small power trenchers, power sod cutters, and rototillers.  I also have limited experience operating a Bobcat and similar large machinery.
