Mariani Premier Group, No. 11 on the 2023 LM150 list, acquired Planted Earth Landscaping, an award-winning company that provides full construction management services and partners with reputable contractors and architectural design firms, based in the Washington, D.C., metro area. This marks the 14th company acquired by Mariani and the first entry into the mid-Atlantic states. Mariani Premier Group said its expansion strategy continues to build a national platform to support landscape companies throughout the country.

“We are thrilled to welcome such a distinguished firm to the Mariani family,” said Frank Mariani, chairman of Mariani Premier Group. “We plan to fully support Planted Earth’s 14 year commitment to creating deeper connections between people and their environments through exceptional service and industry expertise.”

Headquartered in Sykesville, Md., Chris Vedrani founded Planted Earth in 2010. He now serves as president. The company specializes in residential horticulture and landscape management services.

“When we were first approached by Frank Mariani to join the Mariani Premier Group, the emotions were overwhelming. We were excited, nervous and flattered to be included in such a unique and groundbreaking vision” said Vedrani. “Planted Earth was founded on these very same principles. This is the reason we decided to partner with them — our beliefs and visions aligned. We are extremely excited to say that we are part of the Mariani Premier Group family. We are committed to the hard work and excellence that this group of the industry’s best demands.”

The move is the latest for Mariani as their expansion efforts continue following the formation of Mariani Premier Group. Mariani made a flurry of moves in 2022 with the addition of seven family-owned landscape companies and has also added Ed Castro Landscape, a full-service operation in Roswell, Ga., and Glengate in Wilton, Conn., Borst Landscape & Design, in Allendale, N.J.  Southview Design of St. Paul, Minn., and Siciliano Landscape Co.of Red Bank, N.J.
