Build a Winning Training Program
Train Your Landscaping Crews for Success


Live Virtual Event with Recordings Available

November 17, 2022

After years of trial and error, Grunder Landscaping Co. has determined that they truly only have one prerequisite for team members: a good attitude. While a horticulture background and skills are an added bonus, they’ve found ways to train people on those skills if they’re open to learning.

The labor market is too tight to be picky on experience for field workers. In three live, one-hour sessions, Marty Grunder, president and CEO of Grunder Landscaping Co., and Vince Torchia, vice president of The Grow Group, will show you step by step how to set up a training program to support and develop your team member’s skills. You’ll learn how to:

  • Use training as a retention tactic for your team members

  • Set training topics for landscaping crews for the year ahead

  • Prioritize training in busy schedules

  • Structure training lessons effectively to maximize the impact

  • Build up members of your team to be great trainers

  • Create a culture of continuous learning and improvement

Give your teams the skills they need to exceed your—and your clients—expectations.


The Grow Group’s events are definitely worth the money. They can shave off YEARS of learning for a company that wants to grow."
