The company says this expansion will allow The Greenery to provide clients in South Carolina’s Upstate with the same level of commercial landscape services that businesses, municipalities and POAs in other parts of the state have enjoyed for decades.

To jumpstart this expansion, The Greenery says it recently acquired Rivertop Contracting’s South Carolina Division, headquartered in Greenville.

“We are excited to bring our employee-owned company to the community of Greenville and look forward to providing quality landscape services to the people and businesses in this area,” says Lee Edwards, CEO. “Moving into the Upstate has been a goal of The Greenery for a long time, and we are proud that it is now a reality.”

Founded in 1973, The Greenery says it has grown into one of the largest and most respected landscaping companies in the Southeast. As an employee-owned company, The Greenery says it has over 800 employee-owners and continues to grow with this acquisition.

The company says employee ownership and investing in their people has proven to be the catalyst for gaining a successful position as a thriving leader in the landscaping industry. The company says this latest move is a part of a recent expansion into parts of Georgia, South Carolina and Florida.

The Greenery says it offers comprehensive landscaping services to commercial customers.
