Dear Mr. Yeomans:

Upon hearing of your search for a new reliable and self-motivated Laborer to join your landscaping crew, I was eager to send you my resume for your review. With proven experience providing comprehensive physical labor and support to ensure proper maintenance and care of grounds, I am prepared to make an immediate contribution to the success of your team.

My experience includes mulching, fertilizing, mowing, pruning, and watering a wide array of vegetation while excelling within team environments. From setting up ladders / scaffolding and clearing debris to maintaining equipment and operating work vehicles and power tools, I excel at prioritizing tasks, collaborating with management and peers, and maintaining a safe working environment.

For the past five years, I have excelled in delivering vital support as a landscaping crew member with Jackson State University, contributing to the successful care and maintenance of more than 225 acres. At the same time—and for the past eleven years—I have also provided overall landscaping support during summer positions with Alex & Alex Landscaping, caring for residential properties and earning praise from managers and customers for superior attention to detail and solid work ethic. In both of these positions, I have a near-perfect attendance record and consistently arrive on time and remain on site until projects are fully completed.

My skills in ensuring excellent landscaping maintenance and care are proven, and I am confident my additional strengths in team leadership and customer service will make me a strong asset to your team.

Thank you for your consideration, and I look forward to speaking with you soon.

Sincerely,

Casey L. Campbell
