    Recently me and my partner inrolled in colledg to get a degree in horticulture. We believe that this will give us the edge that we need to grasp the complete lawn needs of our customers.

    My question is this " How many of you guys would drop a few customers to pick up education in turf management, irrigation, landscape managment, Pest control, greenhouse managment?"

    We believe that this will give us the edge over our compition and give us the push we need to obtain our goal.

    Just courious

    As my partner would say " There is no traffic jam for those who go the extra mile."

    Excellent Idea!! When your out there, your customers expect you to know everything there is to know about woody/herbacious ornamentals,pest control, irrigation, lighting, prunning, fertalization, landscaping, ect. ect. You never will, but, start now and get every license you can, take every course you can. After 9 years in the industry and 4 years on my own, I now realize that I still dont know anything. But I'm learning
