All employees are provided with ongoing training so that they can competently perform all necessary landscape tasks. Employees take a mandatory plant ID and pruning seminar that is given by an experienced member of our team. Continuing education is strongly encouraged, and incentives are provided for successful completion of all horticultural related courses. Meridian subsidizes the expense of taking such courses. 30% of our general staff have formally studied horticulture. Meridian's staff turnover is low, and the majority of our general staff have been with the company for several years.
