June 18, 2019

Yellowstone Landscape acquired Native Land Design earlier this year. The move expands Yellowstone’s growth opportunities in Austin, Houston, and McAllen, Texas.

“I met with a lot of great people during the process and Yellowstone stood out,” said Native’s founder, Ben Collinsworth. “We have very similar operations, people, software, processes and priorities. We are all very excited to continue in this journey with Yellowstone and believe we will be able to mutually benefit each other for years to come.”

Native Land Design focuses on commercial properties and was founded in 2001 with current revenue around $15 million and a staff of 250 people. All employees at Native were retained following the move and there is no brand change for Native currently underway.

Late last year, Yellowstone acquired Somerset Landscape & Maintenance, a $30-million company based in Chandler, Arizona. Yellowstone ranked No. 5 on Lawn & Landscape’s Top 100 list with 2018 revenue of $230 million. Yellowstone is based in Palm Coast, Florida, but has multiple locations.
