Deere...I did go to college. I received my bachelor degree in Management Info Systems. I think college is a great for people. I was not enjoying it while I was going through it. I was trying to get my business off the ground and sitting in class all day was not helping that day to day, it was very stressful. There were many times I wanted to quit and just focus on work. I am VERY glad that I stuck it out and graduated.
My college did not offer any specialized courses for the landscape industry. When I was in college I still thought I was going to go out and get a "real job" once I graduated. My opinion is getting a college degree is very beneficial. It is not so important what your major is, just an extra 4 years of quality education will treat you well in life. At 18 years old many people do not have a career path picked out, so just getting that degree is a huge achievement.
