Thought I would introduce myself. I am 26 years old and own a small landscaping business in central Illinois. My full time job is an 8th grade science teacher. I worked for a large landscaping company for years since college. In the spring of 2008 we decided to start our own business. We have a certified landscape design artist who does most of our drawings/designs. We only do installs/redesigns now, but we are planning on expanding to maintenance in the future. Visit our website to see some of our projects. http://www.hildlandscaping.com/Portfolio.html I've enjoyed reading the many posts on this site and opinions on the "best" way to do things and why you all feel the way you do.
