Why It’s Revolutionary: Steve’s has increased profitablity by cutting back on the number of SKUs it carries and increasing quantities on the best-selling merchandise. Participating in Garden Center University helped ensure the company is utilizing sound business practices. Steve’s used to do landscape installation, but in 2008 decided to team up with three local installers instead, which allowed customers to get their projects finished in a more timely manner.
