BrightView Landscapes acquired Environmental Earthscapes, a Tucson, Ariz.-based firm that operates as The Groundskeeper. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

The Groundskeeper and its subsidiary Greater Texas Landscape Services specialize in commercial landscape maintenance, landscape construction, tree care and irrigation services. The company has locations in Tucson, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Albuquerque, El Paso, Austin, San Antonio, Houston and Dallas and employs more than a thousand people across four states. It ranked No. 21 on the 2017 LM150 list of largest landscape companies with $68 million in 2016 revenue. BrightView ranked No. 1 with $2.2 billion in 2016 revenue.

“Thanks in large part to the quality of their work and commitment to client service, The Groundskeeper has seen steady growth from its founding in 1976 and today is one of the Southwest’s most prominent landscape maintenance, development, tree care and irrigation companies,” said Andrew Masterman, BrightView CEO. “We are delighted to welcome their team to BrightView, and we look forward to continued growth and success in this critical region.”

The Groundskeeper CEO Anil Hiremath said the employee-owned company shares much in common with BrightView.

“Both organizations are dedicated to their teams, the communities in which they operate and to producing the very finest results for clients,” he said. “Becoming part of an industry leader like BrightView creates opportunity for our team members and assures that our customers continue to receive the highest level of service.”

King & Spalding served as legal advisor to BrightView, and Farhang & Medcoff served as legal advisor to The Groundskeeper.
