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. You’ll spend a jam-packed day going behind the scenes with Marty, touring the facility and grounds, meeting with the GLC leadership team to see how they operate and optimize each area of the business, and watching how their crews return for the day and roll out in the morning. We purposely limit attendance at this event so we can guarantee you get the one-on-one attention you need.

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 Marty will lead you through presentations and in-depth discussions on the keys to business success:
Operations, including scheduling, quality control, and equipment maintenance
Attaining and retaining a high-performance team
Marketing and communications
Sales, from training to tracking
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.
