EcoLandcare acquired by Alabama-based Landscape Workshop


BIRMINGHAM, Al. – Landscape Workshop recently completed the acquisition of the Lexington, Ky. based landscape maintenance, enhancement and snow operation company EcoLandcare. Landscape Workshop is one of the top grounds management companies in the Southeast and already has a strong presence in the Kentucky market. With this expansion into Lexington area, Landscape Workshop has nine branch locations throughout the Southeast.

“EcoLandcare is a highly respected company that we are eager to bring under the Landscape Workshop banner under the leadership of our Lexington General Manager Sammy Shores, said J.T. Price, CEO of Landscape Workshop. “This acquisition offers LW the opportunity to expand in the Bluegrass area while continuing to provide exceptional service to our clients.”

EcoLandcare was originally founded by John Thomson in 2010. After much deliberation, Thomson decided to sell the company and certain EcoLandcare assets to Landscape Workshop due to its reputation and 35-year record of professionalism. He will continue to operate Thomson Lawn Care as a key turf chemicals subcontractor to Landscape Workshop and will also serve as senior advisor to Landscape Workshop throughout the transition.

“Landscape Workshop shares the same passion and commitment that EcoLandcare was built on, I have no doubt that they will continue to provide the same quality service our clients are used to receiving,” said Thomson. “I look forward to working alongside Landscape Workshop.”

Landscape Workshop is a full-service grounds management company that has been providing professional service and expert maintenance for outdoor commercial spaces since 1984.

The Majcher Group represented Landscape Workshop in the transaction. The Bradley law firm served as Landscape Workshop’s legal counsel.
