VALLEY VIEW, Ohio – HighGrove Partners has been named one of the largest landscape companies in North America by Lawn & Landscape magazine.
HighGrove ranked 86th on the 2015 Lawn & Landscape Top 100 list — up from its ranking of 97th on the 2014 list. Lawn & Landscape published this year’s list in May, sponsored by Toro.
“Our Top 100 list includes some of the best and brightest leaders in the landscape industry,” says Chuck Bowen, Lawn & Landscape editor and associate publisher. “These companies have achieved a level of growth that very few others can claim.”
“I’m thrilled the HighGrove staff’s hard work continues to pay off, year after year,” says HighGrove CEO Jim McCutcheon. “Our goal is to be the No. 1 commercial landscaper in Atlanta, and being part of Lawn & Landscape’s list is just one sign of our progress. We’re in great company with the other firms on this list!”
The Lawn & Landscape Top 100 is based on 2014 revenue from landscape profit centers, and is reported by each company listed. Companies on the Top 100 list earned total revenue in 2014 of $8,026,808,707. That’s $776,283,627 more than in 2013 — an increase of 11 percent. Companies on the list reported total employment (seasonal plus year-round employees) of 86,255 people. The list comprises 97 companies in 31 states and three firms in Canada.
