Update!
Negative-I officially hate having a fractured arm.
Positive- I start my Landscape Design course tonight officially, after missing the first class due to my injury. So I can say that I'm really excited to get that going and meet my instructor and everything. Wish me luck!

Well the class was great, learned a few new things right away. My teacher is a woman, which is kind of odd. She works for the city as a landscape designer, she has her horticultural license, as well as her arborist and design licenses. She seems to know what she's talking about. I learned about the zoning for plant materials in our general area which is 5a to 6b. Apparently those zones are different in the states, your numbers are one higher than ours in Canada. I never knew anything about that. The textbook has given me some great idea's with design as well as meeting with clients.

Heres an idea that I thought was neat, something I never thought of before. When planning a design for a landscape, its obviously important to speak with the clients about their requirements, needs and wants. One point was to go inside their home, and look out the windows. Ask them what they want to see? Is there something they want to cover? (maybe some out outdoor plumbing or an air conditioner?) I've always looked at a landscape from the outside, rather than from the inside looking out.

Those are some cool ideas, it seems like you should learn a lot from this class.

Thats a 36" Red Hawk Hydro Drive, and actually I like it so far. It was left outside and the paint faded at the dealership so we got a discount. It runs strong and cuts fairly decent for the price so it'll do for a bit. Probably end up looking for a Hydro Scag or Exmark later on. I'm not sure what a 205 would be in the states but it was around 40k here with the Kage.

The skid steer is really nice, I want to try and get and older machine to start, like a bobcat 863, or 873.
