Product Description

2018 NALP Field Trip: Frank & Marty’s Excellent Adventure
Portland, Oregon
August 8–10, 2018

Join Frank Mariani and Marty Grunder as they head to Portland, OR, for the third annual NALP Field Trip.

Together Frank and Marty will take you behind the scenes of Pacific Landscape Management (PLM), one of the most successful commercial maintenance and renovation companies in the country.

There is no better—or faster—way to learn how to move your business forward than taking an in-depth tour of a leading company like PLM and seeing, up close and in person, how they execute and operate. And with Frank, CEO of one of the largest privately held landscape companies in the country, and Marty, CEO of Grunder Landscaping and a leading green-industry consultant and speaker, at the wheel, you’re in for an amazing ride!

Tour an Industry Powerhouse and Drill Down on Tactics in Focused Educational Sessions

Led by Bob Grover and his partner, Elias Godinez, PLM is a $22M/year operation with a finely honed focus on culture, efficiency, and customer service. The tour will take you through every department of their business, where you’ll hear directly from their team how they do what they do.

In addition to the tour, this two-day program will feature interactive educational sessions on:

  • Outsmarting your competition, no matter your size
  • Creating a culture that attracts and sustains a winning team
  • Sales strategies that deliver results
  • And winning with efficiency


Enjoy the Rare Opportunity to Walk the Grounds of Nike World Headquarters 

If you select the VIP experience, you will also have the rare chance to tour the spectacular campus of Nike World Headquarters, whose grounds PLM maintains, and to enjoy a special cocktail reception and three-course dinner there with Frank, Marty, and Bob.
