Swingle Lawn, Tree & Landscape Care merged with LawnAmerica, an Oklahoma-based lawn care company. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The merger results in Denver-based Swingle Lawn, Tree & Landscape Care owning the majority of LawnAmerica’s assets.

LawnAmerica has been in business since 1999. It employs approximately 60 people and is active in Tulsa, Okla.; Oklahoma City; and portions of the North Carolina/South Carolina markets.

“In order for our business to continue to grow and prosper, we are merging with a larger company out of Denver, Colo., Swingle Lawn, Tree & Landscape Care,” said Brad Johnson, founder and former majority owner of LawnAmerica. “Swingle has been in business for nearly 70 years and is well-respected in their market and nationally. After lengthy discussions with many industry advisors, I’ve decided Swingle is the best fit for the next steps for LawnAmerica.”

Both companies will continue to operate as independent businesses. Each company is exploring new ways to combine resources, experiences and sharing of best practices to improve efficiencies where possible, Swingle said.

“A twenty-year industry friendship between Brad Johnson and myself has provided the foundation for this excellent opportunity,” said Thomas R. Tolkacz, CEO of Swingle and new majority owner of LawnAmerica. “Combining our businesses provides an opportunity to grow stronger as multi-regional businesses, providing additional opportunities for team members and expanded service offerings to customers. We appreciate the amazing work Brad and his team have done, and together we plan to build on this success.”
