BrightView Landscapes has completed a series of acquisitions in 2018 in addition to its recently announced acquisition of The Groundkeeper, according to a report in Landscape Management.
BrightView acquired Precision Landscape Management in Dallas in January and Cleary Brothers in Northern California in February following their acquisition of Willamette Landscape Maintenance in Oregon in December and Urban Tree Care in Los Angeles in September. BrightView also previously announced the acquisition of Girard Environmental in Florida in September.
This represents a significant increase in BrightView’s acquisition activity, including a focus on both larger regional players and smaller strategic targets. Coupled with regional acquisition activity and private equity acquisitions across the U.S., the landscape services acquisition market remains at a very high level.
