Industry News

This latest move marks the fourth BIO acquisition in 15 months, and has expanded Yellowstone Landscape Group's presence in Texas.

| December 21, 2010

BIO Landscape & Maintenance, Inc. (BIO), a Yellowstone Landscape Group company, expanded its Texas presence through the acquisition of Agrilawn, a commercial lawn maintenance and landscaping company focused on serving property management companies in the Greater Houston area.

“BIO’s maintenance division has been hard at work winning prestigious accounts in the Greater Houston area,” said BIO President Robert Taylor. “By acquiring Agrilawn, we strengthened our existing team by gaining a roster of skilled operators who have successfully been serving their diversified portfolio of premier customers for almost 30 years. Our teams have integrated nicely and are already working together in our Southwest Houston branch. Nathan and his management team will continue to play a significant role within BIO.”

Agrilawn was founded by Nathan Young in 1983 in Richmond, Texas.

“Agrilawn has always been focused on a strategically targeted group of clients,” Young said. “By joining BIO, we will be able to grow our customer base, while expanding our service offerings to our existing customers. I know this partnership will be beneficial for all stakeholders.”

BIO serves 21 counties with a combined workforce of more than 600 professionals throughout Texas. This transaction, which was completed Dec. 1, marks the fourth addition to BIO over the last 15 months. In October of 2009, BIO acquired Houston-based commercial landscape maintenance company Outdoor Environments. In December of 2009, BIO acquired Texas Services, Ltd., a sustainable Tree Care focused lawn maintenance and landscaping company in Houston. In May of 2010, the company expanded its geographic footprint by opening a maintenance branch in Beaumont and in July of 2010, acquired Forest Hills Lawn Service, Inc., a lawn maintenance and landscaping company in Dallas. BIO will open a Woodlands Branch in North Houston this month.

BIO, established in 1982, is a full service sustainable landscape contractor providing turnkey landscape services for a range of commercial, municipal, institutional, retail, athletic, medical, resort, and multi-family properties.
