MIAMISBURG, Ohio – The GROW! 2016 conference will take place in February in Dallas, Texas, offering attendees no shortage of education and motivation.
The annual event, organized by L&L columnist Marty Grunder, brings more than 200 landscapers from across the country to network, learn and tour a local contractor’s facility. You can read coverage from this year’s event in Brunswick, Ga., here.
“GROW! 2015 was our best event yet. Jeffrey Johns and his team gave us a world-class tour and Mark Sanborn knocked it out of the park,” Grunder says. “We want people that understand the best investment you can always make is in yourself. That investment you make in yourself and your team will prove to pay dividends for years to come."
The conference will feature a tour of Complete Landsculpture, an award-winning, full-service landscape architect firm founded in 1985 that services the Dallas and Oklahoma City areas. In 2014, Complete Landsculpture was awarded the Greater Dallas Business Ethics Award. This award is presented to Dallas-based companies that demonstrate a firm commitment to ethical business practices in everyday operations, management philosophies and responses to crises or challenges.
