“This addition to the Prescription portfolio will help us strengthen our presence in the St. Cloud market,” said Prescription’s Chief Executive Officer, Ryan Foudray. “We admire the quality of Peerless’ work and the passion and integrity of its owner, Aaron Haakonson; they enjoy admirable customer loyalty as a result. We are privileged to welcome Aaron, his team, and their clients to our company.”

Haakonson will take over as the branch manager for Peerless as it becomes a division of Prescription Landscape. The company will operate as Peerless Lawn Care, a division of Prescription Landscape Inc.
