I have been in the turf business for seven years, starting as a comm. applicator at age 21, now I own my own lawncare co.. I am approximately 75% mowing, the rest being small landscape projects, mulching, pruning, and snow removal. I have always learned everything hands on, I have learned best by experience. To make a long story shorter I am wanting to learn more about landscape design and hardscaping. I don't have the time or money to get full time back into school and cannot seem to find any winter classes on these areas of interest, and it seems what I read in the books, especially with hardscape, doesn't seem to match up with what I have heard from local pro's. I have a good knowledge of plants, just needing help in other area's. Any information or suggestions anyone could offer would be greatly appreciated.
