Have you seen any landscaping schools such as this one pop up in your area? Look out!

Landscape students' complaints (http://www.azstarnet.com/business/193386) - Former student Dobosz, who runs her own landscaping business called Jumping Daisies LLC, said she paid $7,140 upfront to enter a fast-paced landscape design degree program at the school. She attended for 10 weeks but had misgivings right away, she said.
On her first day of class, her drafting instructor arrived an hour and a half late, she said. The teacher was replaced halfway through the course. Some classes weren't taught at the college level, and some weren't offered in accordance with the schedule, Dobosz said.
When she left the school in May, Dobosz said she was owed $4,200 within 30 days, but she still hasn't received the money. At one point, owner Corey told her that he had sent a check by certified mail, Dobosz said, but the tracking number didn't exist.
