| February 7, 2012

NASHUA, N.H. Lawn Dawg announced the acquisition of Lush Lawn Service. The acquisition continues Lawn Dawg’s growth down the east cost into Connecticut and comes just five weeks after Lawn Dawg closed on the acquisition of Capital Green Lawn Care in Rochester, N.Y.

Lush Lawn Care is owned and operated by Mark Kelbacher of Plainville, Conn. The existing operations will come under the name of Lawn Dawg later this month. A significant outcome of this deal is the addition of two seasoned veterans in the lawn care industry, Mark Kelbacher and Dan Cisz.

“This opportunity came at the perfect time for Lush Lawn,” said Kelbacher, who will continue to oversee the branch operations in Connecticut. “The partnership with Lawn Dawg provides the support and resources to expand our footprint throughout Connecticut. I'm excited, and Jim and Tom were professional and their enthusiasm really closed the deal. I look forward to being a part of the Lawn Dawg team and continuing to provide exceptional service and results to all of our customers for years to come.”

Dan who has relocated to the Lawn Dawg headquarters in Nashua, N.H., has accepted the position as director of sales states. “I’m very excited about my future with a growing company like Lawn Dawg as we collectively capture the fertilizing responsibilities of the northeast,” he said.

“This marks the 4th acquisition we’ve made in the last 2 years, and it may very well be the most exciting due to the incredible potential of the market coupled with the addition of two industry veterans,” said Lawn Dawg President Jim Campanella. “Mark and Dan bring great knowledge and leadership to our team. They have built a great company in Connecticut and we are very enthusiastic about the prospect of building on that core business. We are proud to have made another significant step to achieving our goal of being the dominant provider of professional lawn care services in the northeast.”
