    Hey all,

    I own a lawn care / landscaping company, I purchased the business as an existing concern.

    I do not have really any experience in brick pavers, but my guys do.

    My question is where is the best place for me to get an education? I don't want to learn from my guys as I would like to bring more to the table, although my guys do a great job, and the patios look really nice, there are times that I think they could look better.

    Any suggestions??

    I spoke to a family friend who did that stuff for many years and asked him to consult on my first couple paver jobs for whatever $ he wanted...he turned down the cash and helps me out whenever I have a question estimates at the jobs etc...that's what I do with everything in this business..whatever i don't know or can't handle I find/have guys who can..

    ICPI is the Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute. They offer certification programs that will both give you the education you need, but also give you accreditation to show to new customers.

    Talk to Town and County Landscape Supply in Wauconda, IL.

    They offer ICPI classes in that area on occassion.
