Gridiron Capital, LLC, in partnership with management, just announced the formation of the Yellowstone Landscape Group, Inc. Yellowstone, headquartered in Dallas, Texas, completed the acquisition of Houston, Texas-based BIO Landscape & Maintenance, Inc. and Atlanta, Georgia-based Piedmont Landscape Contractors, LLC. These acquisitions expand the company’s position as a provider of commercial and estate landscape services in the Southeast and south central U.S.

“Our management team is extremely excited to become owners of Yellowstone, and we are thankful for Gridiron’s financial commitment and partnership with the company,” said John Miller, CEO of Yellowstone. “Together we will be able to utilize our management and industry experience and build on BIO and Piedmont’s leadership to accelerate market share growth, expand our service offering and differentiation while supporting our customer’s efforts more aggressively in other U.S. markets,” added Judy Guido, executive vice president and chief marketing officer of Yellowstone.

Yellowstone has grown to become one of the 20 largest landscape services companies in the United States, serving the Southeast, south central and Southwestern U.S. The company’s environmental focus, customer service orientation, desire to expand its geographic reach and belief in the value of its employees as the drivers of a company’s success, complements the culture at both BIO and Piedmont. The company looks to identify opportunities within each of its platform markets and achieve growth through cross-training, sharing best practices throughout the organization and strategic acquisitions.
