New & improved digital edition

Starting with our November issue, we’ve unveiled a new digital edition format for Lawn & Landscape online. The new format has gotten rid of the flipbook feature and presents the magazine in an easy-to-read format.

The digital format has also been optimized for mobile viewing via your phone or tablet, allowing you to read Lawn & Landscape on the go.

Hardscape profit builder

Check out our new section for design/build and hardscaping ideas.

The design/build market grew a lot in 2015, and it looks like that won’t change in 2016. Because of that, Lawn & Landscape has started doing more coverage of the hardscape industry, including a partnership with the Interlocking Concrete Paver Institute for the new section: Hardscape Profit Builder (found on pg. 129).

This month’s section looks at Earthly Delights, a landscape design business started by Mary Liljequist 13 years ago.

For more design/build and hardscaping coverage, head to for past articles and news stories we’ve run on the subjects. Maybe the images and best practices will inspire a project of your own.

screen your potentials

When it comes to recruiting, Bill Arman and Ed Laflamme suggest screening applicants to prevent interview duds.

So you’ve got an open positon at your company. You put up notices online and in print media to inform potential applicants that they can start sending their resumes.

What happens now?

That was the topic of The Harvest Group’s webinar in late January, led by Bill Arman and Ed Laflamme. Titled “How to pre-screen and interview potential employees,” the webinar looked at the best ways to steamline your hiring process to prevent becoming overwhelmed and hiring the wrong person.

To make it easier to understand, Arman and Laflamme broke the “people program” into eight steps: retention, growth, performance management, onboarding, recruiting, organizational structure, HR administration and culture compliance.

For this webinar, they focused on the recruiting step.
