“To be included on the Top 100 list is a high honor.

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 list earned total revenue in 2015 of $8,445,782,868. That figure is $403,225,109 more than in 2014 and an increase of 5 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.

They never stop looking for better ways to overcome challenges and make the most of their opportunities.
