Tregaron Capital recently confirmed its investment in the Cutting Edge Landscape Company, a Boise, Idaho-based commercial landscape services company. The investment was completed in 2018.
Cutting Edge Landscape Company is the result of the 2015 merger of the Cutting Edge Lawn Company, which had been owned by Bob Wheeler, and Total Maintenance Solutions, which had been owned by Ben Helton. Bob and Ben continue to serve as co-presidents of the Cutting Edge Landscape Company.
Earlier this year, Cutting Edge announced its acquisition of Community Landscape Services headquartered in Bluffdale, Utah.
Cutting Edge also provides facilities management services in Western states.
Tregaron Capital is a repeat private equity investor in the landscape industry. It acquired Phoenix-based Somerset Landscape in 2014. Under Tregaron’s ownership, Somerset expanded by acquisition in Las Vegas, Nevada, and the Dallas-Fort Worth in Texas. Tregaron exited its investment in Somerset through its sale to Yellowstone Landscape Group in 2018.
