Whenever I talk with green industry pros—whether at a trade show, at a conference or over the phone—upping their efficiency usually comes up as a top priority for their company.

Labor efficiency, equipment efficiency, energy efficiency, water efficiency. You name it; they’re striving for it.

As supply chain issues, labor shortages and high fuel prices become evermore pressing concerns for the green industry, we at Green Industry Pros wanted to showcase the top products that boost landscapers’ efficiency and increase their bottom lines for this Editor’s Choice Award. You can find out which products made the list here.

While we are on the topic of new products, I’m very much looking forward to seeing what all the exhibitors have in store for this year’s Equip Expo. It’s been so remarkable year after year to see manufacturers continuing to challenge themselves to keep up with all of your product needs, and I always come away fascinated by what the latest equipment and technology can do.

As for the rest of this issue, you’ll find articles on what you need to know about succession planning, the benefits of battery-powered equipment, simplifying project management with design software and more. And, as always, we have our contractor profile featuring Darren Johnson of Long Term Lawn Care and a winning—if not unusual—project completed by Goat Turf.

What strategies or products has your company adopted to boost your bottom line? I’d love to hear them—and I’m sure your fellow readers would too. Email your ideas to [email protected] or connect with me on LinkedIn.
