How do you hit the ground running for success in 2024?

Landscape Professionals

Richard Bare
Arbor-Nomics Turf
Norcross, Ga.

“We have a new in-house marketing/sales team and a new outside marketing company. They are very excited and motivated because we’ve been giving them pep talks, improving culture and morale.”

Paul Fraynd
Sun Valley Landscaping
Omaha, Neb.

“Start early! We are focused on selling good work, hiring nice people and training them to serve our customers well before the season starts.”

Jerry McKay
McKay Landscape Lighting
Omaha, Neb.

“We are reorganizing our shop and inventory and plan on more in-house training to raise our own standards.”

Industry Consultants

Neal Glatt
Grow The Bench
Boston, Mass.

“Working hard in Q4 means that Q1 gets off to a solid start. For those who didn’t plan ahead, don’t rush into hiring or strategic initiatives without exercising the proper care and time. Nothing will hamper forward momentum like a critical mistake made while rushing.”

Marty Grunder
The Grow Group
Dayton, Ohio

“You hit the ground running in 2024, in large part, by what you did in 2023. In one sense, it’s never too late but companies who grow are intentional about it. And growth requires a runway. It requires planning or it isn’t going to happen. A well laid out plan has all the elements of selling, doing, billing and collecting for the work.”

Phil Harwood
Tamarisk Business Advisors
Grand Rapids, Mich.

“With a clear set of strategic goals.”
