    Just wanted to know how may people attended some type of school involving landscaping management, and if so what type of courses did you attend?

    Thanks for your time,
    eazy

    I have a minor in horticulture...major in forestry. It helps with getting people to trust/listen to you. Nothing beats real world experience. Customer relations is most important in my opinion, can not really learn that.

    The degree is a necessity for getting the type of customers I want, and keeping them. IMO

    So after 46 views, only one reply. I am guessing everyone started out like I did, You live you Learn type of school.

    Thanks,

    I'm currently enrolled in the Turfgrass Management program (2yr) at uconn. I've been learning a lot of stuff, nothing beats hands on, but this definitely gives a lot more depth to the information.

    I started taking OH classes when I started my business. Best thing I ever did. Id say the best classes were Arboriculture, diseases of ornamentals, pests, and irrigation. Having a good teacher makes the difference.
