TruGreen, the nation’s largest lawn and landscape company, announced the acquisitions of Nutri-Turf and Easy Chair Lawn Care, expanding its footprint in Ohio and Michigan and adding more than 10,000 customers to the TruGreen roster.

Both Nutri-Turf and Easy Chair Lawn Care will be folded into local TruGreen branch operations. TruGreen has offered the opportunity for employees of both businesses to remain with the company as TruGreen employees, and will maintain their seniority with the company. 

“After an acquisition, it is important to maintain customer consistency,” said Bill Hausbeck, division vice president, TruGreen. “We believe in maintaining the current employee base where possible, and we are proud that we are able to do that in both the Nutri-Turf and the Easy Chair Lawn Care acquisitions.” 

As the leading professional lawn care services provider in North America, TruGreen has more than 40 years of experience and the strong financial backing to support growth and expansion in the industry. Through selective acquisitions in key geographic regions, TruGreen expects to continue to reach more customers and enhance its service footprint in North America in 2009.
