Determining the proper amount of mulch, soil amendment, seed, and plant material for a project can be a daunting task and a budget buster if you miscalculate. Designed for home gardeners and professionals, this course helps you determine the proper rates and quantities of fertilizers, pesticides, and compost that will elevate your garden or that of your clients.  Calibrate your equipment for a more efficient and environmentally friendly growing season and refine your landscape project needs. Unlocking the calculations for the green industry will make you more valuable as an employee or project manager and improve the profitability, safety, and efficiency of your operation. Plenty of practical, real-life problems for both the professional horticulturist and the home gardener are included.
