Do You Wonder…What Makes a Successful Landscape Company?


It’s often said that entering the landscape business is relatively easy. Maybe, maybe not. The real conversation should be what sets successful landscape companies apart from the others.

This week, Harvester Bill shares his insightful conversation with Jerry Schill, a highly accomplished landscape professional and founder of Schill Grounds Management in Northeast Ohio. Jerry’s impressive accolades include receiving a National Leadership Award from both Snow Magazine and Lawn & Landscape Magazine.

In their discussion, Jerry enlightens us on the key elements that lead to success. He reinforces a fundamental principle frequently emphasized by Harvester Ed, “We are not simply in the landscaping business, we are in the people business doing landscaping.”

By adhering to the principles and insights that Jerry shares with us, there’s no doubt that we can effectively cultivate and Harvest Our Potential
