    I am 14yrs old and starting to get more and more into the bussiness. This past year i started to get a lot af jobs for landscaping. So my question is there anybody that knows any online courses that will help me do more and more. EX: pond building, stone walls, sod, etc.

    Your High school could have horticulture classes or agriculture classes.

    I'm not sure of any classes, but just search www.google.com and you can find plenty of great information, and www.youtube.com will probably have some very helpful videos, and of course lawnsite, and other forums will have TONS of information.

    Just look at these form google... I typed in....

    "Stone Wall Building": http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&rlz=1C1CHMB_en___US361&q=stone+wall+building&aq=f&oq=&aqi=g6g-m4

    "Pond Building": http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&rlz=1C1CHMB_en___US361&q=pond+building&aq=f&oq=&aqi=g10

    I'm not sure of any 'classes though', check around you high school, maybe a garden club or something.

    Google like others said.... State Universities are putting more & more stuff online for free so check those sites also. Maybe take an online accouting class while you are at it. Good luck.
