I have been asked by more than a few of our residential clients if we would undertake some small landscaping tasks for them (mulch tree rings, re-do mulch, simple stuff). Our company has always tried to stay away from that and re-direct it to another firm that specializes in landscaping and hardscaping only. We send work their way, they send mowing our way, it's worked out well for several years. I don't have any plans to go into the landscape business only, due to the extra equipment, learning, and everything else. Well our friends at XXX landscape and garden don't really have the time nor desire to do some small residential stuff and the owner suggests that I just go for it, he knows I'm not trying to take business and I have his "blessing". I guess my question comes down to, where's a good learning site, books, whatever as far as best practices for doing a tree ring, bed edge, what color mulch to switch out... just I guess what you'd call "normal" stuff. My friend doesn't really have the time either to take a day and "teach" me a crash course either.
