Bland Landscaping Company acquires Mutch Landscaping
Bland Landscaping Company, Inc., a North Carolina provider of commercial landscaping management services, has acquired Mutch Landscaping of Apex, NC
Mutch Landscaping was founded in 1992 by Mike Mutch, and provides landscape maintenance, enhancement and irrigation services.
“2022 was a year of growth and achievement for Bland Landscaping in the face of numerous headwinds, and we couldn’t be more excited to finish up the year with the acquisition of Mutch Landscaping,” said Kurt Bland, Bland Landscaping’s president and CEO. “Since 1976, Bland Landscaping has built a brand centered around quality work, attentive customer service, and a commitment to excellence in everything we do. Much like The Byrd’s Group, which we acquired in November 2022, Mutch Landscaping is a leader in the North Carolina landscaping industry and fits perfectly with our culture and passion for landscape management. As Bland Landscaping continues to grow and expand our regional platform, Mutch Landscaping fits well with our existing branch network in the Raleigh-Durham Triangle market. Their facility also provides us additional capacity for improved operational efficiency and growth in one of our core markets.”
Bland Landscaping, based in Apex, is a North Carolina full-service provider of landscape design, installation, enhancement and maintenance services. Its customers include offices, hospitals, universities, municipalities and homeowner associations statewide, including the Triangle, Triad, Charlotte and Coastal regions.
“Bland Landscaping was a natural partner for our company,” Mike Mutch said. “The Bland Landscaping organization puts employees and customers first and has a clear and proven vision for growth, which will benefit our clients as well as our employees looking to advance their careers. Our clients in the rapidly growing Triangle market will benefit from the expanded and enhanced services that result from this combination as well. I’m proud that both our employees and customers will benefit from this combination in the New Year and beyond.”
Over the years, Bland Landscaping – whose in-house team of more than 600 landscape professionals includes turfgrass and horticulture managers, landscape designers, lawncare technicians, irrigation technicians, and floriculturists – has earned more than 100 state and national awards for environmental improvement and landscape excellence. In 2022, Bland Landscaping ranked 59th on the Lawn & Landscape Top 100 list of top lawn care and landscaping companies in the US and Canada by total revenue, jumping 20 spots from its 79th ranking in 2019. Second generation owners Bland and his brother, Matt Bland, CFO and COO, continue to lead the company.
Bland Landscaping continues to seek acquisitions of other maintenance-focused commercial landscape management providers, with a focus on companies based in North Carolina and South Carolina.
