I'm going to be graduating from college in a year, majoring in Landscape Design and Greenhouse Technology. I took these majors because I love design, and I love gardening. Ultimately, I want to be designing and *helping* in the installation of raingardens and shorline restorations. Some other ideas I have: Here in Minnesota, there are some counties that give homeowners grants for installing raingardens. I've contacted the counties that have these programs and the work that has to be done to get the grants as far as paperwork and prep is fairly complicated. I thought I could design the garden and help them get the grant, and that would be my service- or some version of that. I'm also open to the traditional start my own landscaping company, but I'd specialize in the raingarden/ shorline restoration work as well as watergarden work- as a designer only. The labor I'd prefer to contract out. I'd also emphasize naturalizing plantings using native plant species. What do you guys here think? Any other ideas? I know nothing about getting into the world of starting a business. As far as other experience I have in this along with my schooling, I've worked at a nursery/retailer in the past, and I have my hobbies. Thanks!
