HOUSTON – BIO Landscape & Maintenance expanded its Texas presence through the acquisition of Forest Hills Lawn Service, based in Dallas. Forest Hills Lawn Service was established by Bob Ford in 1975 as a lawn maintenance and landscaping company primarily focused on municipal and governmental accounts including the city of Dallas, the city of Rowlett, the Dallas Area Rapid Transit and Dallas Public Libraries.

 “With the Forest Hills Lawn Service acquisition, BIO gains valuable employees, a state of the art facility, and an equipment repair dealership business which allows BIO to bring additional value to customers,” says Robert Taylor, president of BIO.

With the acquisition of Forest Hills Lawn Service, BIO now serves 21 counties with a combined workforce of over 500 professionals throughout Texas. The transaction marks the third addition to BIO over the last year. In October 2009, BIO acquired Outdoor Environments, a Houston based commercial landscape maintenance company. In December of 2009, BIO acquired Texas Services, a lawn maintenance and landscape company in Houston focused on tree care. In May of 2010, BIO officially opened a maintenance branch in Beaumont.
