We’re hiring! First off, here’s a bit about who we are: Carlson Landscape is a small, family-owned landscape design-build company in Kirkland. We are owned and run by a husband-wife team of a Landscape Architect and an expert Landscape Technician with a collective 60 years of experience between us. We started our business in 2013 under the vision to design and install beautiful residential landscapes with integrity and personal investment. As our company has been blessed with success, we also maintain a handful of our projects so offer select maintenance services as well.
We are a team of professionals committed to excellence in everything we build and care for, and work from hearts of service to our clients and one another. We care about our employees and believe in the importance of a safe and encouraging work environment. Every day we leave our work knowing that we gave it our best, and that our clients are delighted with what we do.
Do you enjoy working outdoors? Do you have creative skills and love building? Do you care about green and growing things? We love Landscape work because we get to exercise our creative energy every day and build something amazing from nothing. We not only work with the palette of plants and trees, we also offer complete landscape installation services: stone, low-voltage lighting, irrigation, wood work, hardscapes, and water features. Every day is a little bit different from the one before and we are constantly learning and building upon our skills. We have excellent tools and power equipment at hand to help us save our bodies in the midst of the process.
