NASHUA, N.H. – Lawn Dog acquired Rochester, N.Y.-based Capital Green Lawn Care, continuing its expansion in the Northeast. Capital Green Lawn Care offers a classic five-step lawn care fertilization program and supplemental services as well as a tree and shrub program.

Capital Green Lawn Care is owned and operated by Mark Zingaro, who founded the company in 2000. The existing operations will come under the name of Lawn Dawg in January 2012. “I’m so excited to be part of the Lawn Dawg team,” Zingaro said. “This acquisition gives me the most support that I ever had working for another company in the past or for myself. I feel with all the support and knowledge I’m getting from the Lawn Dawg team, combined with my years of experience, the sky is the limit. I met with Jim Campanella and Tom Bucci for the first time and I told myself this is the team I want to be working for.”

President Jim Campanella shared Zingaro’s enthusiasm. “We are very excited about entering the Rochester market as we continue our growth plan to expand throughout the northeast,” he said. “What makes this even more exciting is that we are bringing on an industry veteran in Mark Zingaro. Mark is a great addition to Lawn Dawg’s management team due to his commitment to outstanding customer service, which is evident in his superior retention rates. Mark has the talent and skills to build a great team and grow our business while maintaining the high level of service that we demand.”

In August 2009, Campanella partnered with a private investment group in an effort to grow Lawn Dawg throughout the Northeast and beyond. Lawn Dawg now has branches in Portland, Maine; Litchfield and N. Hampton, N.H.; Woburn, Plymouth and Hudson, Mass.; and Albany and Poughkeepsie, N.Y.
