    hey man i just went to the local library and got a free library card. they have plenty of books u could check out and they usually let u keep em for a while. u can photo copy pages or just take notes thats what i did and it stuck in my head better. also, i take those notes with me in the truck just in case a question on wut kind of grass tolerates wear and tear better or does a certain type of grass grow better in the shade, u know stuff like that. i got lots of good info from those books like fertilizer charts and which grasses will grow better in your part of the country. u should look into that, its free!

    but u actually got to read the book! :)

    hey when you go look for lawn care books. there's one that's called "All About Lawns". see if they got that one its really good and has alot of if you want to learn about pruning and things like that you should look for a book called "The Pruning of Trees Shrubs and Conifers." You also might wanna look at some landscaping books if u plan on trying that part of the business. But again, you have to read the books.

    No prob! I Wish ya luck in your venture!

    Great links Premo!
    (Although the last 4 seem to be the same.)

    I'm wondering though, both of you are from Mo and yet no links to "" or the equal...
