Eastern Red Bud.

Rutgers has some great courses for landscapers.

Here's one taught by Rutgers Professors, but not at Rutgers.

Soil Biology and its Effects on Tree Management
Monday May 10 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Dr. Joseph Heckman, Professor of Soil Science, Rutgers University
Dr. Jason Grabosky, Professor of Ecology, Evolution and Natural Resources, Rutgers University

This course will address the nature and composition of soils and how they impact the health and development of trees and shrubs. We will examine the structural and chemical composition of soil as well as our historical understanding of it. Most importantly we will examine the “living” component of soil, from microbes and earthworms to mycorrhiza and learn how the life below ground affects the growth of the trees above. Students will receive a 48-page primer on soil biology as well as a compendium of relevant articles as part of the class fee. This course carries 6 CEUs for ISA arborists and 6 CEUs for Pennsylvania landscape architects.

Fee: $140 (includes lunch)

To register, see the brochure of all professional offerings at

http://www.business-services.upenn.e...iculture.shtml

or call the Morris Arboretum at 215-247-5777, ext. 125 or 156.

So I'm using a friend's account, but im actually from Bordentown, NJ. We moved into a row house in Bordentown City this past winter. Now that it is spring and we finally get to see our garden grow, we notices it's pretty crappy! We are looking for a company to just come out and basically strip the backyard which is roughly 15'x60'. I don't need anyone to lay down mulch or anything, I think I can handle that part. Its more weeding, and getting rid of bricks or stones used as dividers to make small beds and also the redish/brown pebbles used often in cheap landscaping. Anything you can do to help would be appreciated, we are on a tight budget, but please let me know!
