Hello everyone. I've got a question for you guys regarding having a degree. At this point I've been doing lawn care and landscaping for 4 years but am considering attending Michigan State for either Landscape design/Construction or Landscape Architecture.....tough choice. For those who have degrees in either, could you let me know the benefits of having the degree versus not??? Did your reputation, clients and referrals grow faster than they otherwise would have and also were you able to apply what you learned directly to your business, or was it a lot of book work that was learned and forgotten? Also, as far as commercial work goes, how much more beneficial is the architectural degree than design degree in getting the work....and your knowledge? Also curious what kind of software you use. Thanks a lot! Any information anyone can give would be greatly appreciated!
