Earthwork Guy Interested In Landscaping!

I'm an earthwork project manager/estimator. I am interesting in learning about the landscaping business. Anyone have some good resources to start learning about it?

landscaping or lawn maintenance? You want be an owner or learn the trade? If you want to learn the trade you should work for a good company for a while. Don't think their are any short cuts.

I agree with what Natural1 says... And if you want to be the owner, you likely want to get some certificates and schooling first.
