Eastern Land Management (ELM) installed a roof-top putting green for RFR Realty in Stamford, Conn. The artificial, eight-hole putting green took eight days, and ELM used a crane to transport materials to the roof. The putting green, which is designed to mirror the 17th hole at Augusta National, has become a popular spot for both novices and experienced golfers, according to the company.

Beyond Outdoors is a new landscape company and garden center in Fargo, N.D. owned and operated by cousins Joe Henrich and Mike Henrich, Inforum reports. The pair hopes to use fresh ideas from well-educated employees to provide customer-tailored, atypical designs. The company’s headquarters sits on an 8-acre property, with more than 12,000 square feet of greenhouse space and 4 to 5 acres of trees.

TruGreen will move into a new headquarters in Memphis, Tenn., by early 2016, The Memphis Business Journal reports. The company has shared an office with ServiceMaster, the company TruGreen spun off from last January. The new office will be in the top-three floors, a total of 65,000 square feet, of a building in East Memphis. It will be able to accommodate up to 400 employees, though the company currently employs about 300.

JP Lawncare and Indiana Outdoor Living, based in Winemac, Ind., merged their landscaping and lawn care businesses to form ProscapeS Unlimited, Principium reports. ProscapeS will specialize in landscape and hardscape construction for residential and commercial property owners, according to the company. The company has fully-licensed irrigation system installers, exterior lighting designers and complete lawn care specialists.

Pacific Landscape Management has been named one of the 100 Best Green Workplaces, which ranks the most environmentally friendly businesses in Oregon, by Oregon Business. The company was ranked No. 90, and it has made the annual list five times. In an effort to be less impactful on the environment, Pacific said it has reduced its use of pesticides, converted to organic blend fertilizers, converted to low emission equipment and vehicles, installed solar panels on two of its facilities and much more.
