Employee Testimonial from Designer Sarah King

What makes you want to stay at our business?  This is my 4th season with Landsburg, however I have been working in the landscape industry for 20 years.   LLN is a friendly, family-based company where I know that hard work and dedication will always be appreciated.  

What does your average day look like?  The best part is there is no average day! No boring, mundane routine; each day is as unique as the next. 

Tell me in just a few sentences about you and what you like most about what you do.  I love the variety in tasks.  I could be working retail, on the job site or drawing and writing bids all in the same day.  Our managers, foreman and a vast majority of our support staff have landscape and/or horticulture degrees, are serious about continuing education and have multiple years of industry experience.

How does your time at LLN differ from the other landscape companies for which you’ve worked?  I’ve had the opportunity to work for some great employers in my career, however, working at LLN has allowed me to broaden my horizons by presenting me with a range of worksite challenges that have required me to become a better designer, estimator and  all around industry professional.  

What do you like best about working in the Brainerd Lakes area?  After having lived in southern MN for 18 years I was thrilled to move back to an area where the fishing, hunting, camping and hiking that my family loves is so readily accessible.  In addition to that, I had never dreamed that the area had such a multitude of stunning landscaping opportunities.  It is an amazing place to be a designer.  

What is your favorite part of working at LLN?  My coworkers.  I have never been surrounded by so many experienced, knowledgeable and driven industry professionals.  What one of us doesn’t know another does, and we are constantly helping and learning from each other.  The staff is the backbone of LLN and they are without peer.
