    Anyone know of some good landscaping or lawn maintenance books out there? Always like to brush up on material and there are a lot out there but I'm just curious which ones are good.
    Thanks for the help

    Hey, check out amazon.com, that have a nice selection on general business and lawn and lanscape, if you have a kindle they are cheaper and you can now even use you kindle for library load.

    A Category of One, it's a great book about business in general and how to set yourself apart from the competition

    There is a ling on this site that has good stuff. I would recommend The Ortho Home Gardener's problem solver. It's like the $500 one just cheaper.
    I also use a Scott’s book that is very easy for customers to understand and cheap. If someone bugs me I tell them the book name and suggest it’s a great way for home owners to learn how to care for their lawns right.

    Amazon is where I got all my stuff. If you take any training classes look at what the teacher is using and find it on Amazon.
