    Your best bet is too go work for someone in the field, learn from them, assuming they are doing things correctly.

    just saw that youre 14.

    I would try and help someone out part time so you can still keep your mowing.
    this work is not cheap to get into, and it will take years to learn. forever, actually. but keep learning. watch how we do jobs, especially the seasoned members like Zedo, dvs, some other guys whose names are harder to remember. They be the Don with bricks.

    also, watch youtube. no one is perfect and theres plenty of false info out there.

    First rule of thumb for hardscaping: Don't answer a question with a question

    Yeah man at age 14, I'd say the best thing for you to do is go carry pavers for someone for a year or two to get a basic idea of what's going on.
    Classes and courses are all well and fine, but until you work in the field you won't have any idea of how to apply what you've learned.
