Yellowstone expands to N.C. with Ecoscape acquisition

April 26, 2017 -  By

YellowstoneYellowstone Landscape, a national full-service landscape company headquartered in Bunnell, Fla., acquired Ecoscape Solutions Group, a commercial landscape company based in Huntersville, N.C. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Ecoscape was No. 107 on the 2016 LM150 list of top revenue-generating firms with $15,964,220 in annual revenue. The company performs maintenance, lawn care, floriculture, irrigation, snow, lighting, installations and snow and ice removal for commercial customers in North and South Carolina.

“We’ve had the opportunity to sell the business several times at various points in our history, but it was never a good fit,” said Ecoscape CEO Tony Pope. “With Yellowstone, they felt like a group that believed a lot of the same things we do. I felt like they were going to be able to add value and help us in areas where we weren’t as strong, but I felt like we could help make them better, too.”

Ecoscape will continue to operate as Ecoscape in Charlotte and Raleigh-Durham, N.C. All Ecoscape employees will stay on staff in their current positions, according to Yellowstone Landscape Marketing Director Joseph Barnes.

“We’ve wanted to expand our service area in to North Carolina for a long time, but were only going to do it when we found a company that was a good match for us, both culturally and operationally,” said Yellowstone CEO Tim Portland. “Ecoscape has a firm foundation of great service to their clients and we look forward to growing together for many years to come.”

Yellowstone Landscape was No. 12 on the LM150 list of top revenue-generating firms with $118,000,000 in 2015 revenue. The company performs landscape maintenance, design, installation, tree care and irrigation services for commercial clients in Georgia, Florida, Texas, North Carolina and South Carolina.
