The prestigious Lawn & Landscape Top 100 list showcases the biggest firms in North America.
Landscape Workshop has been named one of the largest landscape companies in North America by Lawn & Landscape magazine for another consecutive year! Landscape Workshop placed at #55 on the official 2016 Lawn & Landscape Top 100 list, which was published in May and sponsored by Toro.
“To be included on the Top 100 list is a high honor. This list is very exclusive—only a small percentage of landscapers can make it—and brings with it a great responsibility,” says Lawn & Landscape Editor and Associate Publisher Chuck Bowen. “Because of their size and stature in the industry, these 100 companies act as ambassadors of the landscape profession to homeowners and commercial property managers across the country. They continue to exhibit all the things that make the landscape industry great: dedication, drive and a desire to make the world a better place.”
The Lawn & Landscape Top 100 is based on 2015 revenue from landscape profit centers and is reported by each company listed. Companies on the Top 100 list earned total revenue in 2015 of $8,445,782,868. That’s $403,225,109 more than in 2014—an increase of five percent. Companies on the list reported total employment (seasonal plus year-round employees) of 83,971 people. The list comprises 96 companies in 30 states and four firms in Canada.
“Landscape Workshop is growing because we are providing our customers what they want—the most professional grounds management available at a fair price,” said Landscape Workshop’s CEO J.T. Price. “I am very proud of the accomplishments of our team in delivering this service and earning our customers’ trust.”
This year’s list was compiled by Lawn & Landscape editors during the spring of 2015. To view the full list of the Top 100 companies, click here.
