landlarticle2On the heels of making their Top 100 list, Lawn & Landscape published a feature article about Yard-Nique and the unique strategy it used during the economic downturn to grow exponentially while other companies failed. You can read the full article here.

The article is an interview with Brian DuMont, Yard-Nique’s CEO, in which he recounts a professor telling him in his freshman year of college that if he was in the landscaping profession to make money he might as well walk out the door. Brian disproved that notion, big time, and this article tells us a little bit about how he did it.
