Learn from the Very Best in the Industry

Have you always wanted to go behind the scenes of a leading landscape business? This is your chance! This year’s event is being hosted by Pacific Landscape Management and Bob Grover. Bob’s team will show you everything they know, from sales, estimating, and design to operations, fleet and equipment, and company culture management. In addition to the tour of PLM, you will also attend education sessions on:

  • Outsmarting your competition, no matter your size
  • Creating a culture that attracts and sustains a winning team
  • Sales strategies that deliver results
  • Winning with efficiency
All About the Tour: Pacific Landscape Management

Pacific Landscape Management is 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. 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. Read more about how Pacific Landscape Management has nearly doubled in size over the past three years.

Idea: Reward Your Team!

The NALP Field Trip is a wonderful opportunity for you to reward your team with a training trip. The program ends at 5pm on Friday so you can take advantage of the weekend to explore all that Portland and the surrounding area have to offer, from microbreweries and vineyards to spectacular scenery and outdoor adventure.

We learned from true landscape professionals and role models and saw first-hand just how great our industry can be. I left with many specific takeaways I can use right away at my company. Plus, a bonus, I made many new landscape friends that I can tap into for help and friendship throughout my career! Next time you see a Field Trip with NALP and Marty, do it!
