Irrigation + Water Management

Correction: This chart differs from the print version to correct an editing error that resulted in Massey Services being mistakenly omitted from the Landscape Management LM150 Top 25 listing in the Irrigation + Water Management category. The company reported $7,124,480 in 2014 irrigation and water management revenue, which puts it at No. 4 on the  Irrigation + Water Management Top 25 list. The move bumps Terracare Associates to No. 26. The editors regret the error.

Words of Wisdom

Advice and insight from LM150 list leaders.

“Don’t be afraid to let go and be willing to change as a person and a culture.”
—Brian DuMont, president/CEO
, Yard-Nique, No. 74

“The most difficult hurdle is getting to the point of removing yourself from actually performing the physical work required. Once you can reach the point where you have two or more crews generating enough revenue to sustain the business, it’s critical that you act as an owner and manage the business. Once past that point, the basics of providing superior service at competitive pricing and surrounding yourself with solid employees who have the same values as you do 
can lead to growth and success.”
—Keith Rotolo, president
, Rotolo Consultants, No. 34

“Do it right the first time.”
—Phil Berry, controller
, Designs By Sundown, No. 96

“Maintain a positive, open and even fun 
environment for employees, who in turn provide better customer service and look for ways to improve the company. We have 35 employees who have been with us more than five years. It does make a difference for us.”
—Stewart Hanson, president
, Arteka Cos., No. 109

“Smaller sometimes really is better; 
it’s not the size of the company but 
its ROI that really matters.”
—David Hartzell, general manager, 
NJ Best Lawns, Sprinklers & Fencing, No. 139

“Make sure you’re accounting for 
replacement costs for your equipment, 
pay yourself a fair market price (or what it would cost to replace you) and make sure you do a good job in job costing.”
—Rory Lamberton, president/CEO, 
Emerald Isle Landscaping, No. 138
