Where did you get hardscape training?

Hi guys,

Just curious where you got a start in the hardscape field and what type projects you tackled first. Any recommendations for training programs and resources?

Yea, that looks like pine needles, im assuming their dyed because I have never seen red pine needles, but im sure there are trees that have them.

Not dyed, just fresh Florida pine...It fades to a brown rather quickly. Pine straw is a very common mulch material in the south due to the abundance of pines. Much cheaper than a hardwood mulch.

But let's not derail the thread...just looking for instructional training advice.
