TNLA 2013

by Jake / August 26, 2013

We sent four members of our staff to the Texas Nursery and Landscape Association's 2013 Convention & Expo. Lots of amazing classes and keynote speakers to learn from. And so many awesome new products and companies discovered at the expo. Our whole team is revved and ready with a refreshed inspiration. Can't wait for next year![caption id="attachment_1305" align="aligncenter" width="640"]Rodney, Diana, Jake, and Kyle enjoying the expo at TNLA Rodney, Diana, Jake, and Kyle enjoying the expo at TNLA[/caption][caption id="attachment_1306" align="aligncenter" width="640"]Kyle standing next to a ball and burlap tree.
