Production efficiencies: Lean into the changes
FEATURES - NGBC - Nurseries use Lean Flow processes to improve efficiency.

“Some of the methods we’ve made a 100 percent efficiency improvement increase on transplanting,” McGinty says. “Others, we’ve seen 40 percent, 62 percent increases. But for a couple of the propagation types we gained nothing with the production line.”

Making major operational changes like Lean isn’t always a smooth process. When North Creek implemented Lean in 2010, four key employees walked out in April. Each had 10-plus years with the company.

What's that Map? It's BONAP!

What's that Map? It's BONAP!
In native planting design, it is important to consider where a species originates - not just at a country or regional level, but more specifically at a state or county level - to ensure the planning and use of plant material that is truly native to the area. The Biota of North America Program's (BONAP) species distribution maps are an indispensable source of information for landscape designers and architects who are increasingly tasked with creating native gardens.
