Benchmark International has successfully facilitated the acquisition of Schwab’s Enterprises of Northwest Florida (DBA: Bayou Lawn Services) by Landscape Workshop LLC.
Bayou Lawn Services provides professional landscape maintenance and installation, irrigation installation and repair services to commercial and residential clients. Landscape Workshop is a full-service grounds management company that has been providing professional service and expert maintenance for outdoor commercial spaces for more than 30 years. Landscape Workshop’s goal is to help its’ customers achieve business goals, maintain property value, and attract customers and tenants. The company has the ability to serve properties throughout Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, and Tennessee, as well as parts of Georgia, Mississippi, and Florida.
Jim Allen, President and owner of Bayou Lawn Services said “The sale of Bayou Lawn Services was a difficult process that took quite a bit of time. Throughout the years I was engaged with Benchmark, I was presented many potential buyers. It’s funny that the buyer ended up being the very first company Benchmark brought to me at the beginning of the marketing process. I appreciate the dedicated and positive approach that the Benchmark team had during the entire process. Their ability to maintain buyers’ interest level through time played a large role in completing this transaction.”
J.T. Price, CEO of Landscape Workshop, said “We’re very pleased to have recently completed the acquisition of Bayou Lawn Services. Pairing Bayou Lawn Services’ employees and great customer relationships with Landscape Workshop’s management and professionalism will allow the customers in the region to be serviced better than ever before.”
Benchmark International Associate Director David Steverson stated, “We would like to congratulate Bayou Lawn Services and Jim Allen, as well as the buyer, Landscape Workshop. This is a great transaction which will allow Landscape workshop to further expand their geographic presence in a key area of the Florida Panhandle. Once the LOI was signed this acquisition moved towards a closing extremely quickly. This is due in large part to preparation and professionalism of Landscape Workshop and McKinney Capital.”
