    If you were to do it over again would you become a landscaper? I'm debating whether to go to school for landscaping or welding, I Just feel there's more potential in welding. I really enjoy landscaping I just feel its tough and people don't have the disposable income like they used to and also a lot of people just really don't care. I feel landscaping's such a luxury that only a small percent of the population can afford. I own my own lawn mowing business at the moment, im just looking for some opinions on a career in this industry.

    Totally agree with you, it's a shame to go to garden that, one has designed and see it gone crazy for lack of maintenance.

    Hi…I'm located on the north fork of eastern long Island about 40 minutes east of the Pt Jefferson ferry so I would imagine we have the same climate zone…..I also have had a beautiful Rhododendron about 7' tall next to my front door ( the same color as 2:20 ) about 3 years ago I decided to give it a haircut and without first looking online how to prune it I just used my Hedge Hog electric clippers and gave it a huge haircut…the following season most of it was bare with only a few flowers and now a few more green leaves and buds have appeared but 3/4 of the once beautiful Rhododenron appears dead ๐Ÿ™ My question is in time will it come back full or did I ruin it forever ? Thank you and subscribed.

    Unfortunately my Holly that I rescued last fall didn't make it but I'm going to plant another one.

    Hey John, great video!! Lisa and I were out at our first garden today which we maintain on a regular basis and you are absolutely right, it is so easy and such a pleasure to work a landscape that has been maintained properly. We enjoyed your video and felt your words very much. Yes… keep up the good fight!!

    Thank you for your inspiration!

    Jay and Lisa

    I was in CT last week! The Forsythia, daffodils and azaleas were just as pictured here. I love this area because you really have the four seasons!

    Hi John. wonderful garden. love your work. What can I do to keep weeds at bay?. I have tried, fabric, preen, and mulch. ?No matter what I try, I end up weeding by hand for hours every weekend.

    John that landscape is looking wonderful. I remember watching the video where you installed it. Maybe you should add a link.
    The Rhododendrons look spectacular. I'm no landscape architect but how about you try to value add to your projects by offering a [cheap maybe built into the original price] two year tune up price. When the two years is up you could then offer another two years at a slightly higher price justifying the increase on the larger plants you ave to deal with. I guess it is a bit like a car warranty if you service through the dealer. As Shop Dog Sam would say "just saying" ๐Ÿ˜‰
