I am currently working at The Home Depot part time, nights (15-38 hours a week). I am also going to be attending MATC for Horticulture/Landscape associate degree in the fall. this schools Program seems really cool it goes over plant ID, arborculture, construction, desiging, running a business and so on. It seems really cool. I am just wondering with the way the economy is and everything if i can still make a decnt living in this field? I am getting quite a bit of work right now. A lot of people do not have time to take care of there landscape because they are working to much. I understand that it is not easy to start up a business it takes time just wondering how many lawn accounts it would take to make a decnt living.
Cozy Hollow - I thought about driving truck back when i was about to graduate high school in 2010. I was told nobody would hire me until i was like 22 because of insurance/state laws. So i decided not to get my CDL. I thought if my lawn business does not work out i would try that. How do you like driving truck?
