“The field trip was well worth the time, effort, and money!! To be honest with you I feel that attending your field trip advanced my team ahead 5 years, at least! Everything was covered from production and marketing to maintenance on trucks and equipment. One of the biggest things that helped me was to see the owner of the company that clearly took action to achieve function and efficiency. You practice what you preach and that was exactly what I needed! Thanks for taking the guess work out of the equation for us!!”

“A small price to pay for the amount of ideas and information that has helped us manage our office more efficiently and monitor labor hours and production profitability. This Field Trip is a ‘must’ for any owner or key person who wants to take their company to the next level.”
Dave Brown, President & Founder
Dave Brown Landscape Group, Westerville, OH

“I want to drop you a line to let you know how much I enjoyed touring your facility this past Friday. The opportunity to experience an in-depth look into the workings of another company was very helpful and I gained a wealth of knowledge that will be useful within my own company. I feel that the forms alone that I brought home were well worth the cost of the tour. Thanks again.”

Timing: Marty will pick you up at the hotel around 5:30 the night before to go to dinner. This allows everyone to meet and find out a little about each other.

The next day Marty will pick you up at the hotel at 6:45 am to get to Grunder Landscaping early enough to see the crews go out for the day. After that, Marty’s key people will speak about their duties, the group may visit some job sites, and you’ll have lunch at one of Marty’s favorite restaurants. The afternoon will finish up with free time to walk around Grunder and ask questions of those key people. The evening will end with dinner at Marty’s house with final networking opportunities and the last chance to ask whatever questions you may have.
