I'd stick to brick laying until you know the job inside out, apart from when recession strikes you will always have work, even then a good brickie will come off site work and drop on domestic work. It's cheaper to make a house bigger than buying a bigger property.


You could always, (if you can get a start) fill in rainy days with some tree work. Most small companies don't need someone five days a week. Having more than one string to your bow pretty much guarantees you will not be short of work.


Just my take on the situation.



Thanks kinda what I’m trying to do at the moment. I just want to fill my weekends with tree work and landscaping. 

My company won’t let me work weekends due to the other brickies and labours not being willing to get out of bed on Saturdays. 

I don’t see why I’ve been finding it difficult to find weekend work, I come with my own transport, most PPE and a groundsaw. 

Oh and I’ve got a chipsite.
