Landscape Certification Courses by State

Dave Marciniak Business Admin

Landscape certification courses can do great things for your business. No matter how long you’ve been in the industry, odds are good that you’ll still find several things you didn’t know. It may be as simple as learning a better way to explain something to your clients, leading in better sales and retention. And of course, having your local state association’s certifications listed on your marketing pieces just helps position you as the authority – which can make your competition irrelevant.

About the Author

Dave Marciniak

I started in the industry in high school and then moved to San Diego which was the source of two revelations. I worked for a firm doing amazing estates on the coast learning a little about everything from masonry to irrigation to electrical. I later ran the grounds crew for the Salk Institute in La Jolla, CA, which is where I discovered how amazing modern architecture can be. I later moved to Virginia and worked for an amazing landscape design-build firm for three years before hanging out a shingle and starting my own firm.
