Houston, Texas – On Oct. 9, 2009, BIO Landscape & Maintenance, Inc. (BIO), a Yellowstone Landscape Group company, expanded its Texas presence through the acquisition of Outdoor Environments, a commercial landscape maintenance company headquartered in Houston, Texas, serving Harris, Montgomery, and many of the surrounding counties. All members of the Outdoor Environments team have joined the BIO team, expanding resources and expertise for clients throughout Southeast Texas.
Robert Taylor, president of BIO, said, “Outdoor Environments and its principal, Chris Lallier, will quickly become an integral part of the BIO team. Chris worked for BIO some years back, went out on his own, and we welcome him back to share in the vision we have for BIO and Yellowstone. Chris is a very capable manager and will soon be running our North Houston Branch. Chris models the values within our organization in regard to integrity, customer service, and professionalism.”
Outdoor Environments, led by Chris Lallier the past eight years, was built from the ground up through aggressive sales, referrals and word of mouth. This transaction allows Chris to pursue his strength of relationship building in the role of Branch Manager with a focus on business development.
With the addition of Outdoor Environments, BIO now serves 10 counties with a combined 380 employees throughout Southeast Texas. In April 2008, BIO merged with the Yellowstone Landscape Group, one of the largest full service and environmentally focused landscape providers in the United States.
