With Peter’s expert guidance, you will learn how to run your business far more efficiently, and how to avoid the common pitfalls that most business owners face.

    Our company engaged George to help us implement LMN Software for our business. He especially helped us understand our costs and was crucial to setting up amazing estimating templates for pools, landscapes and maintenance. At the same time he helped us restructure our priorities for improvement. Our company runs so much better now… more responsive, attentive, and thoughtful. Looking forward to working with him more! He is a wealth of knowledge.


    The Patio Company, Massachusetts
    It is unbelievable in hindsight how far our business has come since working with George. He is always available for advice, and thoughtfully presents the pros and cons of any big decision. He taught me how to take the emotion out of a situation, analyze ONLY the facts and make a decision. We look forward to working with George again.


    Giordano Landscaping, Pennsylvania
    George helped us get over the hump to make the big decisions we need to make to get to the next level, without adding lots of people. He would remind us, “if it does not put you out of business and the downside risk is low, then try it.” – Ironically George is cautious. All about improving the bottom line before the top line. The how to do it is so clear for us now. We look forward to working with him as we grow, and would recommend him highly to our peers.


    Down to Earth Landscaping Co., Colorado
    Contacting George put us on the right track from day one, and with his help, our company was able to hit our annual sales goals in the first 6 months! Best decision ever. We are lucky to have found a George, and had the good fortune to work with him. We recommend him highly.


    Terra Firma Landscaping, Ontario
    George has been offering Earthscape consulting services over the past 8 years. In that time, his guidance has helped us grow over 300%, while making our business run more smoothly. I personally have worked less hours every year over the past 4 years, and this has been in part due to George's business advice.


    Earthscape, Ontario
    George was very attentive and listened to our concerns. He brought many things to our attention on how it should be billed in our business, and therefore ensuring it was costed properly, resulting in us saving money. He had some good tips on how we could organize our garage/shop/yard better as well, making it more efficient.

How it works


Initial Consultation

Book a free 20-minute consultation with us, where we’ll discuss the state of affairs in your business, and identify the pathway that is best suited for your business to succeed, which may or may not include peer groups.


In the onboarding phase, we’ll conduct a SWOT analysis on your company, to determine the most urgent priorities for its success. We’ll also share critical tools for running a successful business.

Finding the right match

After the onboarding phase, we will identify the optimal peer group for you to participate in, based on your company’s focus, the size of your company, the stage of growth that you’re in, and your geographic location.
