    earlier in the year i was debating on weather or not to got to school for landscape and turf design. im very glad that i made the choice to go to school. there is know way that i would have learned as much about turf by doing it then going to school. dont get me wrong i know their will be some things that school cant teach me but so far it has been a blast. so for anyone out their debating weather or not to go to school i say do it!

    don't forget to have fun while you're up there. I did the school/business thing for 4 years and I reallly missed out on the partys and such.

    I commend your decision about going to school.

    If your parents paid taxes for your high school education, have them ask for their money back on the spelling classes.

    You don't have to be a good speller to be a well educated person, and well rounded. Dave thanks for the advice. You helped me with my final decision. some people on here are so negative.

    I am inclined to disagree with that. People will begin judging you based on paper and they will not be impressed by confusion of there and their and so forth. I am not trying to be negative and I am not mocking you but it is vital that you begin to understand the nuances now. In the future people will not be speaking directly to you they will be reading your documents.

    He's posting on a message board....I'm sure he'll care alittle more about proper grammar when he's giving estimates and such. :D

    Glad to hear your going to school for it and actually enjoy it! I'm going to be heading to college in a few years...I'm a late bloomer. I'll probably be the "old man" of all my classes.
