I like my job because my work is a combination of gardening and construction, doing different types of construction work in all kinds of landscape settings, each with various staff members and for a wide range of customers. At an early age, I started working in agriculture. Later, I obtained skills in construction. Now I am employing both in creating beautiful gardens. Every day is a different experience and an opportunity to learn. I always feel secure working here, where I am treated with appreciation and respect.
Setting this company apart from others is a working environment that includes respect, encouragement, appreciation and improvement. My supervisors respect my abilities and I in turn respect their leadership. I have confidence in my co-workers and they feel the same about me. At the Fockele Garden Company we are encouraged to appreciate and depend on each other’s contributions, and we are allowed- and expected- to expand our skill-sets and achieve both personal and company goals.
I have worked in other Gardening companies but when I started to work here I noticed the difference. This is a company that does different jobs and I like that a lot, because I could learn other things such as irrigation, boulders, patios and I like the designs that are made for the planting jobs. The variety of plants that they use make the gardens look very nice and the owners and all the personnel are excellent people, that makes it an excellent place to work. I feel very at ease in this company and I hope to continue working here for many more years.
I enjoy the various personalities among our clients and staff. I like being able to facilitate good communication between my co-workers.

I like working with Fockele Garden Company, one of the best companies I’ve worked with. Every day I feel equipped and ready to my work because I’m provided with all the tools I need to do my job right each day and to do it even better the next day. Another reason I like it here is because of the natural way we prune the plants. Why? Because they look much better, which makes the customers are happy. When our clients complement our work, my partner and I feel great. Our supervisors, team members and company owners show their appreciation, too.
Our company recognizes the importance of family life. Everyone, from the owners to our co-workers are very supportive when a special event or an illness requires us to miss work. Many companies would simply let you go if you needed to be away from your job. I appreciate that!
There are many reasons I like working for this company. My employers are good people. Our wages are competitive and learning new things every day is also rewarding.
Working on the Fockele team inspires me to do my best every day, where I’m encouraged to exercise discipline in making sure that things are done well.
