1. Level Green Landscape
Based in the Washington D.C.-area, this company grew, in part, by splitting one large branch into two—for a total of four branches—and hiring two new branch managers. Its top challenge is reducing employee turnover. Still, it plans to grow another 24 percent in 2016.

2. Coast Landscape Management
The Napa, Calif.-based company bought Marizco Landscape Management in Sonoma County, Calif., late last year to expand northward. Company leaders believe Coast and its sister company Signature Landscapes in Reno, Nev., are uniquely positioned to service clients along the I-80 corridor, and that it’s paying off. Coast plans to grow another 28 percent next year.

3. Cleary Bros. Landscape
This San Francisco Bay Area company attributes growth to a hot local
economy and the consolidation of Brickman/ValleyCrest. Plus, personnel changes, such as the addition of a vice president and a project manager, have freed up other executives’ time to focus on strategy and growth.

4. Integrated Landscape Management
Despite challenges opening new branches and finding qualified labor, Integrated Landscape Management had a great growth year thanks to the implementation of mobile time sheets, which added efficiency in the field and in the office. A new enhancement sales process also fueled sales.

5. Bland Landscaping Co.
A bevy of upgrades over the last five years—including business automation software, a sales tracking program, electronic timesheets, a career portal, scheduling software and estimating software—have contributed to the growth Bland saw last year. The company also points to a geographically diverse sales pipeline as another growth factor.
