Piedmont Landscape and Austin Outdoor unify

Industry News

Both companies will now operate under the Austin Outdoor brand.

| May 8, 2012

BUNNELL, Fla. – Two Yellowstone Landscape Group companies, Piedmont Landscape Contractors and Austin Outdoor, united to become Austin Outdoor. Austin Outdoor in Florida and Piedmont Landscape in Georgia and South Carolina have been working side-by-side since 2008 in the Yellowstone Landscape Group.

With this name change and the recent acquisition of the landscape management division of Cornerstone Solutions Group in Florida, Austin Outdoor will be positioned as one of the largest landscape firms in the nation.

“Piedmont Landscape's name change just made common sense. For the past two years, Austin Outdoor and Piedmont have shared the same systems and resources. It was time to complete this unification and make our message clearer for prospects and clients." said Edward Schatz, Jr., founder and CEO of Austin Outdoor.

Piedmont Landscape has been serving clients in Georgia and South Carolina since 1999. Austin Outdoor, established in 1994, is a horticultural organization dedicated to creating, building and maintaining sustainable landscapes. Austin Outdoor operates from its Florida offices in Bunnell/Flagler County (headquarters) and serves Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and the Bahamas.
