Fresh landscape for specialists following acquisition
Eco Landscapes has joined forces with the Nurture Landscapes Group in a collaboration designed to further enhance the service portfolio to clients across the South of England for both companies.
St Albans-based Eco Landscapes was founded in 2008 by Alex Ufton. The majority of the business is made up of the delivery of landscape maintenance to offices, industrial parks and retail parks across the South, in addition to some static sites, and sits perfectly alongside Nurture’s client base.
Alex will remain with Nurture, focusing on the company’s existing clients and new business development.
The operational and management teams delivering the service on the ground will remain in situ and will continue to work out of Eco’s head office in St Albans, ensuring continuity of service to its clients.
Eco will continue to trade under its own name until November 30 after which it will come under the Nurture brand.
Ufton said: “This union works perfectly for Eco Landscapes and Nurture Landscapes, with whom we share similar best practice.
“Our client bases are similar so our customers can now benefit from the industry expertise and resources of two great businesses.”
This acquisition is the 22nd to date that Nurture has completed over the past 11 years. Expansion into new markets is part of the strategy of the combined business.
