Yellowstone Landscape recently acquired Ecoscape Solutions Group in Charlotte, North Carolina.

It’s the first acquisition in the North Carolina market by the Bunnell, Florida-based company. Tony Pope, Ecoscape’s owner, says the company will continue to operate as Ecoscape but will eventually be rebranded as Yellowstone.

“We’ve had the opportunity to sell the business several times at various points in our history, but it was never a good fit,” Pope says. “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.”

Yellowstone was ranked number 13 on Lawn & Landscape’s 2016 Top 100 list.

"Tony and his team at Ecoscape have been a tremendous addition to the Yellowstone family,” said Yellowstone CEO, Tim Portland. 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. Ecoscape has a firm foundation of great service to their clients and we look forward to growing together for many years to come."
