Memphis-based Master Lawn has acquired Mid-South Turf and Ornamental , a thirty year old lawn spray business in the Memphis market. Master Lawn is a division of Michael Hatcher &Associates, a landscape industry leader in the Memphis market.
“By joining forces, customers of both companies will benefit from a broader range of horticultural services and technician experience as well as expanded service lines that will include mosquito spray, flea and tick control as well as holiday season lighting and decorations,” according to Trey Ball, CFO and General Counsel of Michael Hatcher & Associates,
“We envision outstanding opportunities to further expand service lines, while developing our continued education and training opportunities for all our employees” said Joey Steele, division manager of Master Lawn.
The alignment of culture and values is tailor made, and the combined team and service will produce product/service offerings that propel rapid growth in all divisions of our organization: design, installation, and maintenance,” said Ball. “We view this transition as a new beginning and continuation of the legacy Mid-South Turf and Ornamental has maintained over the years, with the quality brand of customer service it represents,” he said.
Bud Cummings, owner of Mid-South Turf commented, “ Hatcher & Associates uniquely checked all the boxes for us in a partner with their commitment to the customer, industry, financial strength and company culture, our entire team is excited about the future as we capitalize on the growth and opportunities ahead of us!”
