The months and some locations for the 2019 Technical Training Schools have been identified earlier than ever to help owners plan and hopefully attend!


Turf School: April 16 - 17, 2019
500 Jerry Steele Ln, McDonough, GA 30253

We will have Turf School April 16-17 in Georgia. What are we doing? We will learn maintenance on real turf and hands-on for basic maintenance on equipment. The facility of the training is a shop that carries Exmark/Toro equipment and has a lift so our guys will see underneath the mowers for hands-on training.  

Summary Event Agenda:  

  • Maintenance on real turf for relevant grass types
  • Tour of the Toro/Exmark facility
  • Learn basic maintenance on mowers with hands-on exercises

Landscape Trends for 2019

Auto mowers are hitting the market hard this year for residential clients. They are on the trends list for 2 large landscape organizations and Horticulture Magazine. Penn State students also tested them and reports are available to the general public of their findings.


The color this year is coral! Many popular annuals are launching a coral variety including zinnas, impatiens and geraniums to name a few.


Multi-use features in the landscape are also in high demand for 2019. A trellis for climbing vines is also used as a wall creating rooms in the yard are popular. Also walls made of firewood are making the sophisticated landscape created by architects. Edible landscapes that are beautiful to the eye are all over the magazines and trends for this year for numerous organizations.


June: Holiday/Landscape Lighting / location TBD

August: Snow School in Ohio

October: Pruning/Hardscape/Softscape in Ohio

As more specific dates, locations, etc. are finalized, we will communicate to the network and hope you will plan on building your business by enhancing your technical skills! If you are curious if adding these services is right for your business, contact me or your franchise consultant.
