Well, I figure we have about 1.5 weeks of full duty left, Sandy has took its toll with some of our residentials for the season and they have called it quits early.

I'd like to expand my knowledge of landscaping this winter, not necessarily so much as to expand into it, but more so to know what I'm talking about and help our clients out.

Anyone suggest any good readings on general landscape design, topiary or anything in the general field.

Landscaping for Dummy's. Yes it's a real book- Books of Million's is where I got mine. And no I'm not admitting I have one it's just I bought one for my friend. And read it. I mean If I was needing one that's where I'd look. But I'm a know it all and don't need books like this. I'd also try www.lawnsite.com
