DENVER Swingle Lawn, Tree & Landscape Care acquired Saratoga Ventures, a Boulder/Longmont, Colorado, lawn services company.

The acquisition further solidifies Swingle's position as the largest independently owned lawn and tree care company in Colorado, helping Swingle provide increasingly improved and expansive service for residential and commercial lawn service clients in Northern Colorado, Swingle said in a statement.

The move was initiated by Saratoga Ventures in an effort to guarantee its client base be served by a Colorado company with a reputation of exceptional service, a diverse range of services and staff technical expertise, Swingle said.

"Our team's focus will be on servicing our existing client base while fostering loyalty among new customers as we integrate them into the Swingle family," said Thomas R. Tolkacz, CEO of Swingle.

Swingle was ranked 69 on the 2012 Lawn & Landscape Top 100 list with revenue of $17.4 million and 210 employees in season.
