Sample Landscape Drafter Cover Letter

When writing a landscape drafter cover letter be sure the hiring manager knows you have experience that lines up with the nature of the job--preparing detailed scale drawings and tracings based on rough sketches or other information provided by the landscape architect. All landscape drafter cover letters should provide details about what the applicants can bring to the job that may set them apart from others.

Mr. Gabriel Lyons,
Hiring Manager
Oceanside Landscape Designs
76 Beach Street
Any Town, USA 78956

Dear Mr. Lyons:

I read on JobBankUSA.com about the position open at your firm for a landscape drafter-a profession I've been trained for and have experience in. I was one of three landscape drafters at Golden Strand Architects for the past five years.

I am now eager to find new employment and would like very much to join your firm, which is close to where I now live. This would also give me an opportunity to learn about landscaping along the coast, focusing on indigenous plants to this area.

May we get together to talk about what I can bring to the job? Please call me on my cell phone: 785-897-3434 to set up an interview at your convenience if you'd like to meet in person. Thank you for considering my application and cover letter. I look forward to hearing from you.
