    I have degree's in experience. A few of you degree people are screwing up my lawns:

    Customer: "Well Joe Know it all degree man said I should plant bermuda" Charles: "Well can you afford to pay me to cut it ever week, because you know bermuda needs cutting every week(when it rains) or it makes a big mess"
    Customer: "Well Joe know it all has to be smarter than you so we will go with bermuda and I can fire you when it makes a mess":hammerhead:

    Customer: "Joe know it all says we need to spray for weeds and then put fertilizer on"
    Charles: "Well you know you will dead spots for a long time and what grass you do have will shoot up and I will have to cut it more often"
    Customer "Lets go with Joe know it all with the college degree.........."
    Customer "I just cannot afford to keep paying you every week and omg look at those dead spots. Just what are you doing to my yard?":dizzy:

    a degree is not the end all answer, but a combination of degree of and experience is a good thing. I know if I did not have a degree I would not be in the situation I'm in right now...
