From Garden Center magazine. Read it all here.
Landscape companies aren’t much different from consumers when it comes to the product and services they need. Both groups want a large selection of plants in a variety of colors. Both landscape and retail customers look for a clean shopping environment with fresh, healthy plants. Most importantly, both are willing to pay a fair price for a quality product.
But, while landscapers are conventionally most-closely associated with growers – after all, growers supply a lion’s share of the plant material that goes in the yards – the less-tapped relationship between garden center operator and landscaper could be a profit center just waiting to emerge.
Editor’s Note: We think retail garden centers and landscapers are often natural business partners.
