Landscape Maintenance
Landscape maintenance businesses are a very hot topic these days. If managed properly, they can turn into billion-dollar revenue streams, a fact which has, by no surprise, caught the eye of many financial institutions. Private equity firms seem to be snatching up landscape companies, and at good multiples. But they aren’t the only ones who are sitting up and paying attention; so are landscape contractors themselves.
