The company manufactures and supplies engineered soils.

Boyne Capital, Miami, has announced that Greenrise Technologies LLC, a Boyne portfolio company, acquired Southern Nurseries Inc., a manufacturer and supplier of engineered soils located in Hendersonville, Tennessee.

Southern Nurseries has served the specialized soils market in the Central Tennessee Valley since 1983. The Company provides branded biofiltration soils to contractors through the Holy Cow! Soils brand. These highly engineered products are used to clean and absorb stormwater runoff and are applied in the development of retention reservoirs, erosion control applications and landscaping.

“Southern Nurseries fits perfectly within the Greenrise mission to ‘deliver innovative, reliable, and precisely engineered green roof and stormwater management turnkey systems, landscape media, componentry and maintenance,’” says Derek McDowell, Boyne managing partner and CEO. “We are excited to support the growth of Greenrise through this strategic investment."

“The custom soils that make up the Southern Nurseries product suite are critical to on-roof applications given their weight and water retention properties,” says Ray Derbecker, Greenrise CEO. “Southern Nurseries enhances our portfolio, allowing us to leverage our robust component supply chain to reliably serve our customers and provide market leading pricing. We are planning to expand Southern Nurseries' geographic reach and are delighted to welcome the team to Greenrise.”
