Andy :

I would tell you this.......................

You have the right attitude, thinking ahead like that.

If I could only take you down a typical suburban street in the outskirts of Toronto...........Just about every home has a deck or patio area in the backyard. The use of that plastic wood here is really taking off. Many city parks departments are buying park benches made of it, and it is being used for boat docks at cottages, as it is not affected by wetness.

AS for the future........

The landscaping business, here in Canada, is not going to die out, for sure. As I said above, the techniques for installation are not going to be forgotten by you. A business degree ? Sure go for it, but it may not be really needed, as you all ready have practical skills that are enduring.

Thank you Jim,

You really are a great source of advice. Hopefully one day soon I can take you up on the offer on the tour of the Toronto suburbs.

By the way many congratulations on becoming a moderator. Good choice by the board owners.

Thanks

Andy
