I went to college at East Carolina GO PIRATES!!!!! for 2 years for construction management before i stopped. I also took some business classes while i was there. I worked for my old teacher/landscaper after my senior year of high school and freshman college summer so learned a good deal on landscaping there. Never ran a mower, pulled a real size trailer and any type of tractors. well i learned on a 31hp kubota ZD331 Our shortest trailer was a 16ft deckover learned tractors on 60-70hp machines, i learned as i went. We only did commercial There was a guy there who pretty much runs stuff(buying out the guy when he's retiring) who taught me a lot of what i know He doest resi lawns on the side so i worked with him too and help me out subbing me some lawns my first year.

I learned a lot of what i know about hardscaping from watch videos looking on here and talking to other guys when i have questions. I did take ICPI this year just to help me gain knowledge on certain types of jobs i haven't done yet. Learned plants from walking around nurseries and asking questions.

Learn new things every year about running my own business, talk to and am friends with a ton of landscapers and some guys on here i talk to here and there. Actually one of the better places i found for learning new ideas, techniques and such is Instagram there a ton of landscapers on there and some accounts that post a ton of peoples pictures, can talk to people and ask questions i think theres a lot of guys from here on there

Thanks for the compliment again Would love to to see some of your work when you get time
