Hey everyone, My name is Ryan and I am currently 21 years old. I have been working in the lawn/landscaping industry since I was 15. Last year I decided to stop working for someone else and go on my own. I went our registere a company and all that other legit stuff and picked up 15 lawn accounts in my first year. After working last year I decided in the fall that I wanted to go back to school and get my landscape architects degree since I realized I would never be able or have the know how to do the large projects that I wanted to do in the future. I didnt get out of the business I am still going to be doing landscape design/installs and hardscape work this summer, just no the lawn maintenance. It stinks that I had to stop the lawn service to go back to school but school is three hours away and it just wouldn't work. Anyway cant wait for school to be over only one more week and I already have about 6 decent sized jobs lined up for when I get home, on top of working for my cousins lco full time.
