I have been able to have most of my employees get certified nationally in the following organizations which are nationally recognized.ICPI, NCMA. We regularly attend seminars for continuing advancement in many aspects of landscaping and hardscapes
I was studying Geology in college and decided to take a Soils and Fertilizer class which is horticulture. After taking that class I realized that I loved what landscaping is all about.
I believe that landscaping is really a Jack of all Trades type of profession. Where else do you implement plumbing, carpentry, masonry, horticulture, electrical, and construction practices, not to mention the business aspect of the trade.
