2019 NALP Field Trip: Frank and Marty’s Excellent Adventure

2019 NALP Field Trip:  Frank and Marty’s Excellent Adventure


Now in its fourth year, the NALP Field Trip: Frank & Marty’s Excellent Adventure provides owners and their teams with a rare opportunity to go behind the scenes of a leading landscaping company and see firsthand how they operate. The event is led by Frank Mariani, CEO of Mariani Landscape, one of the largest privately held landscaping companies in the country, and Marty Grunder, president and CEO of Grunder Landscaping Co. and The Grow Group, a premier green-industry consultancy. 

This year, Frank and Marty are heading to San Diego, CA, where we’ll tour the local branch of LandCare, one of the most comprehensive and successful providers of commercial landscape services in the US.
