    Does anyone know of any colleges that have landscaping courses? I have been searching in New England and have not had any luck.

    Th4re are several good programs. Texas A&M for turf, Purdue, U of A, ASU Morision school of agribusiness (golf division), University of Michigan has a good turf program. I think some schools in Florida and Georgia also have turf programs. Are you looking of landscape/golf course construction, turf maintenance, horticulture? CAD landscape architecture? As for specifically East Coast I don't know of any. In fact I met a Morriosn student that came here from Boston, maybe that was why he was here although he did not mention it.

    Thank you.
    I am thinking more along the lines of every day landscapping for houses. I already do spring and fall clean up, have several homes that I keep the lawns.I want a school in New England since that is where I plan on staying after school, and would like to be able to keep the customers I already have.

    Thanks! I have just looked at their website and it looks very promising! I graduate high school next year, and will look into Thompson School at UNH a lot more.
