Enhanced Landscape Management (ELM), a subsidiary of Landscape Development, completed the purchase of Holmes Landscape in Oceanside, Calif. Founded in 1974, Holmes Landscape provides commercial landscape maintenance and tree care services.

“There were many factors I had to consider after deciding to sell my company. My team of valued employees and the clients we have served for many years needed to be left in good hands,” said Larry Holmes, Holmes Landscape founder and president. “As we came to know ELM and how they operate and conduct business, I decided that they were the right fit to give myself, my employees and clients peace of mind now and in the future.”

Holmes will remain with the company through the integration process and Lee Frank, the company’s vice president, will continue to oversee the local operations as part of the ELM management team.

“An opportunity such as this does not come along very often. Holmes has an outstanding reputation, a 50-year legacy and over 130 talented landscape professionals that we added to our organization. Our company cultures, values and ways of doing business align,” said ELM President Ron Reitz. “We also open a new market for us in the San Diego area which has been a goal of ours for quite some time. This creates tremendous opportunities for all our team members as we continue to grow.”

Gary Horton founded Landscape Development in 1983. The company currently operates from 13 regional offices throughout California and Southern Nevada and employs more than 1,300.
