BIRMINGHAM — Landscape Workshop recently acquired the landscape operations of Quality Lawns of NWF, based in Fort Walton Beach, Florida. 

Landscape Workshop, which landed at No. 47 on our most recent Top 100 list, gained 12 employees in the acquisition. 

In 2010, founder Jeff Hebner began his landscape career with just a truck and small trailer. Hebner will remain on-board in a consultant role during the transition period to ensure a smooth changeover before moving on to pursue his other interests.

“I feel like this transition will benefit my current customers with an upgrade in service and care because LW has more resources to ensure all aspects of the property are handled," Hebner said. "My current team will be afforded benefits and a 401k that they so much deserve. I’m excited for everyone involved to get the full experience LW has to offer. Thanks for 11 years of business to all my current customers and team members.”

“We are thrilled at the opportunity to expand our footprint in the Florida Panhandle area. With the combined resources of Landscape Workshop and Quality Lawns, we have the ability to provide top notch green industry expertise and quality customer service,” said Landscape Workshop CEO J.T. Price. “Jeff has built a notable reputation in the Emerald Coast area. We are fully dedicated to continue providing the level of customer service that Jeff and his team have worked so hard to establish.”

Landscape Workshop’s Austin McClure will continue as general manager of Emerald Coast operations and the current senior leadership will remain consistent within the combined organization.
