Aspire Workshop at Grunder Landscaping Co.

Dayton, Ohio

Give us 24 hours. We’ll give you your best year yet.

Our GLC Field Trips bring owners and their teams onsite to Grunder Landscaping Co. headquarters in Dayton, Ohio, which president and CEO Marty Grunder has led to become one of the most successful companies of its kind in the Midwest. In this event, you'll tour GLC's office, shop, and grounds, and see the ins and outs of how they use Aspire as a competitive advantage.

Not only will you learn from the Grunder Landscaping team, but you will also learn from the Aspire team of educators and implementers as well. We are purposely limiting attendance for this event to guarantee you get the one-on-one attention you need. This event is for current Aspire-users only, if you do not currently run Aspire but are thinking about switching, we recommend you register for our Grunder Landscaping Field Trips instead.

Sign up to be updated when we offer this event again.

I'm Interested in the Aspire Workshop

Presented in partnership with Aspire Software. 


“What I liked best about the GLC Field Trip was how open Marty and his team were about their company—the issues, the mistakes, and the successes. It was eye-opening to see the amount of organization that goes into their operation.”
— Geno Neri, Neri Landscape & Maintenance, Batavia, IL

Seeing Grunder Landscaping in action has really helped me realize what’s possible and what it will take to transform The Flower Guys into my market’s premier landscape company.
— Greg Slatner, President, The Flower Guys, Fort Lauderdale, FL

Seeing Is Believing

Our Field Trips begin with an afternoon tour of Grunder Landscaping Co. and a dinner with the group so you can get to know Marty and the other attendees and have some fun, too. The next day we’ll spend at GLC, where Seth Pflum, Cheif Operating Officer, will lead you through presentations and in-depth discussions on the keys to business success while using Aspire:

  • Performance improvement

  • Optimizing how a company uses Aspire
  • Operations, including scheduling, quality control, and equipment maintenance

  • Marketing and communications

  • Sales, from training to tracking

  • Client satisfaction

The Focus Is You

We purposely limit attendance at these field trips to keep the focus on you, your questions, and the challenges you face. You’ll also have the opportunity to expand your professional network with other landscapers from around the country.

The Field Trips are extremely informative and a great way to see and hear how another operation does things. They’re beneficial to companies of any size.
— Wesley Addington and Justin Skipper, Wesley’s Landscape & Lawncare, Westfield, IN
