The acquisitions allow Brightview to expand in South Florida and Phoenix.

BrightView Holdings Inc., Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania, has announced the acquisition of Luke’s Landscaping Inc. and Desert Classic Landscaping, both previously owned and operated by FirstService Residential, a subsidiary of FirstService Corp. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Both Luke’s and Desert Classic are leading, single-source, year-round landscape service providers, offering a full suite of commercial landscaping solutions, including grounds management, landscape enhancement, irrigation, spray and arbor services.

Luke’s was founded more than 40 years ago and currently operates two branches in South Florida with nearly 250 employees, serving customers between Coral Springs and Miami.

Desert Classic was established in 2002 and currently operates two branches with more than 250 employees serving customers across the entire valley area of Phoenix.

“We are pleased to be strengthening our presence in two important evergreen markets: South Florida and Phoenix. I’d like to welcome the nearly 500 talented employees, and the customers they serve across both markets, to the BrightView family,” says Andrew Masterman, BrightView president and CEO.

He adds, “Halfway through our third fiscal quarter, we are well-positioned to achieve our fiscal 2019 target for realized acquired revenue as well as our baseline target ‘wrap-around’ from acquired revenue for fiscal 2020. We look forward to working with both teams to continue delivering the intense customer focus that our customers have come to expect from BrightView.”
