We're once again partnering with The Harvest Group to help three lucky companies turn their businesses around. From nearly 50 applications from lawn care and landscaping businesses across the country, a panel of experts chose Outdoor Expressions, La Cholla Landscaping and New Visions Lawn & Landscape for the 2018 Turnaround Tour.
Sponsored by Fleetmatics, Exmark and Greenius, the three companies will receive a year’s worth of consulting, including on-site visits, phone calls and a customized plan for operations, growth and profitability from The Harvest Group, a $25,000 value. We’ll be bringing you their stories in print and online as they work with consultants Bill Arman and Ed Laflamme.
Outdoor Expressions PA
Outdoor Expressions PA was once a multimillion-dollar company in Pennsylvania, and the new owners want to head in that direction once again.
La Cholla Landscaping
A career change after 9/11 has Gabe Lobato going from a struggling landscaper to one who wants to get past the $1-million mark.
New Visions Lawn & Landscape
Michael Mould and Tiffany Tucker have experienced rapid growth since acquiring New Visions two years ago, and now need to control that growth before they burn out.
