    I'm curious to know... for those of you larger companies out there, how many of you have a Bachelors degree or higher pertaining to landscaping? How many of you have an associates degree pertaining to landscaping?

    I'm researching for a course of mine in college, and am eager to see the results.

    Thanks again for your participation!

    associates degree in Computer programming,
    the furthest from any landscape job, lol
    Was pushed into it because in the mid 80's it was the thing to do.

    At my last company, a partnership, no one had a degree or even much in the way of college classes. We got up over 3 mil a year. I'm not there yet but will be soon just doing resi maintenance.
