Go on a Field Trip with Marty Grunder and NALP
August 23-24 in Chicago


NALP, the voice of 100,000 landscape and lawn care industry professionals, is partnering with Marty Grunder to present the first-ever NALP Field Trip educational event.

The National Association of Landscape Professionals has announced a partnership with Marty Grunder, president and CEO of Grunder Landscaping Co. and nationally recognized industry consultant, on a new education event called the NALP Field Trip with Marty Grunder.

This two-day event, taking place in Chicago, August 23 - 24, will allow landscape contractors of all sizes the opportunity to learn in an interactive educational setting combined with an insider's look into the inner workings of Mariani Landscape, a national award-winning firm based in Lake Bluff, Ill.

During the field trip, Frank Mariani, CEO of Mariani Landscape, the largest privately owned residential landscape company in the United States, will walk participants through his highly successful residential design/build business.

Grunder will draw on his personal understanding about Mariani Landscape to illuminate the secrets of their success. "I have known Frank for 25 years; I first met him when I was a 22-year-old landscaper who wanted to be the best I could be, and no one has made a greater impact on my career than Frank has," says Grunder. "I intend on drawing everything I know about Mariani Landscape into this exciting field trip."

Grunder, who is an author, speaker and consultant in addition to running a successful landscape business, wants to bring game-changing education to other landscape professionals.

"I am honored to partner with NALP on this event where we are going to literally change lives," said Grunder. "I know that sounds silly, however I know what Grunder Landscaping has learned from Frank and his team and I know the value this event will have and there is no doubt in my mind that when we are done, attendees will leave feeling smarter, inspired, and glad they came."
