Consulting

Systems Organized by Design

The landscape industry is unique. Your work is creative, seasonal, and at the mercy of mother nature. It’s hard to find good people and harder still to keep them. No one goes into the landscape business for the easy, quick and big returns on investment. But big returns are possible.

Our Consulting programs are completely customizable, systems based, and built around your needs.
Consulting Programs offer:
  • A comprehensive Free business assessment allowing us to understand where you are today. The assessment helps us to tailor a business development plan based on a three to five year vision. This assessment is comprehensive, not done on site and is based on your needs. It allows us to be sure we’re working in the direction you feel is most beneficial. (Free assessment is based on a commitment to a block of consulting hours.)
  • Tangible benchmarks. Reference points based where you are and your vision of where you’d like to be. Benchmarks are based on your financial position, your values and your goals. Accountability works both ways. We want you to hold us accountable and offer no term agreements and refunds of unused hours.
  • A cloud based application for business process improvement, documentation and organization.

Our hourly rates are as low as $150.00 when purchased in blocks of 10
