GAITHERSBURG, Md. – The Brickman Group has acquired The Green Plan, based in Broomfield, Colo. 
 
The Green Plan’s two locations, north and south of Denver, will join Brickman’s four existing branches in Denver, Englewood and Colorado Springs. Last fall, Brickman acquired Boston-area D. Foley Landscape
 
“I realized that in order to grow the company further, it meant either retooling the business model completely or partnering with a larger company,” says The Green Plan owner Jeff Pope, who acquired the business in 1996. “In my search for that partner, I found Brickman was the absolute best fit for my people and my customers. From a service perspective, it just made sense. Brickman’s culture matches our own, and the company brings processes and resources that will enable my team to continue to grow, while providing unparalleled service to our clients.” 
 
“We’re excited to have the Green Plan’s team join our Colorado operations,” says Mike Bogan, Brickman’s senior vice president. “I am confident that Jeff Pope and his leadership team, working alongside our current Brickman team members, will help establish Brickman as the market leader and provider of choice in commercial landscape management in Colorado.” 
 
Pope and his management team will remain in their current positions, continuing to serve existing clients, adding in Brickman clients and growing the market into the newest division of Brickman.
