The Landscape Industry Is Evolving - The Future of Landscape Supply

When you think about businesses, most can be profitable, and some can be lucrative, and operating a landscape business is complex. It's heavy on operations. There can be multiple divisions, many people, customers with high expectations, materials and supplies, equipment, weather, and the list goes on. There are many moving pieces, and anything an owner can do to streamline the business or make a process more efficient usually improves profitably or benefits the company in a big way.

More important than ever before, efficiency is the name of the game. Most recently, LMN and SiteOne partnered up and integrated online landscape supply purchases directly through the LMN Estimating software. In theory, when you create an estimate in LMN now, you can order the materials directly through SiteOne Supply which skips a few steps and reducing an estimator's time.

During this episode of the podcast, Stanley Genadek and Sean Kramer talk about the future of landscaping and how the industry is evolving. They cover everything from how Sean got his start in the green industry, his role at SiteOne Landscape Supply, where the green industry is headed, and what landscape contractors need to be conscious of heading into 2021.
