Please consider and answer the following. Assume the following scenerios are for a small company (2-3 employees tops) and the question applies towards the skill level of the owner. Also please assume the LCO performs all needed lawn maintenance to properties (mowing, fertilizing, leaf clean-ups, weed prevention, shrub trimming, overseeding, etc. NO LANDSCAPING). How helpful would you consider a horticulture degree to be in lawn service industry? How helpful would a wealth of horticultural knowledge (book smarts/ experience, no degree) be in the lawn service industry? How successful would an owner be with very little to no knowledge of horticulture be in this industry? Im just curious. The skill level in this industry varies greatly. I wont answer my question......at least yet.
