Hello I am in the need for some good Landscape books

I am looking to expand upon the very little knowledge of landscaping that I currently know as of right now. My local Garden Center has a few classes monthly on different things, ponds, landscaping, etc... but I want to really get more about plants, trees and landscape design, hell even to know more about lawns. My worker and I are pretty damn good at cutting lawns but I really want to expand my world and be a complete landscaper.

If you really want to get into landscaping and not just be a lawn mower, invest in Michael Dirr's books. They are the definitive resource on trees and shrubs, and are very user friendly.

We really like Pests of Landscape Trees and Shrubs. It's a step-by-step guide to diagnose damage to over 200 woody ornamental species from insects, mites, diseases, nematodes and more.

Maybe community college in the winter? Perhaps get on board with pesticide apps?
