    @ipodojunkie hey I’m going to post this page up on my facebook fan page
    called Landscape Architects, would love you to become a member. I’m also a
    Landscape Architect, studied in Ireland and then England, now working in

  • M. Renkas

    It sounds like you’re trying to convince yourself. BTW what size plow do
    you have on your truck in the winter time?

  • Wildlife Safari TV

    sir, please I need your help. does landscape architecture programs require
    a lot of MATH like engineering. cause I hate math. please reply me back

  • chstrawter

    yup…I meant rewarding. Another great thing about being a landscape
    architect is that you can communicate graphically!

    Eddie, you mentioned your mentor been an African American however I did not
    notice any African American in your office or video. I think you are an
    inspiration to all and I encourage you to extend your gift to minorities
    who desperately need some doors opened.

  • edingsteve1

    Kudos to you cuz, but the African people have been in America long enough
    to know why we came here for and how we have been treated by the majority.
    My take is that, as an afro person, I have to set up my own direction in
    life and try to be the best at what I am doing. It doesn’t matter if you
    are a genius in a racially founded society and state; you have to set your
    own path and bring about others. I respect eddy for being his own man and
    hopefully others like you are setting the example.

  • kjlkjl

    i totally respect that he made enough money playing football to buy a
    landscape architecture firm, but i have trouble looking at those trite
    1970s designs and listening to him talk about innovation in the field. I
    would be willing to bet my next paycheck that Mr. George has never read
    Charles Waldheim or James Corner.

    Egyptians DNA? What is that? Many of the most prominent western
    egyptologist used to call ancient egyptians European BLACKS! That’s enough
    to show the ridicule of even engaging in this discussion. Europe, as
    western europe, appear in world history for the first time in the form of a
    legend 1000BC! How much history was already written when Europe appeared in
    the pages of mankind consciousness? God only knows! Europe as a cultural
    concept, is a child compared to Africa!

    So, what’s up with this video? In the description, Mr. George is referred
    to as a landscape architect. On his firm’s webpage, it says nothing about
    his actually being licensed. If he’s not really a landscape architect, then
    it seems odd that ASLA would have chosen him to talk about how great it
    is…to be a landscape architect. If he is a landscape architect, then it’s
    not clear why that is not included in his list of credentials on his firm’s

    No time to convince my self – I am just doing it… BTW It doesn’t snow
    everywhere in the world in winter – we would be plowing mud! Now stop being
    so bitter 🙂
