The acquisition expands firm’s maintenance operations into Northern California.

Enhanced Landscape Management LLC, the maintenance division of Landscape Development Inc., Valencia, California, has completed the asset purchase of Zuke’s Landscape Inc., Rancho Cordova, California.

Zuke’s owners, Dan and Jennifer Zuccaro will remain and join the ELM executive team.

“We have had the pleasure of working with the LDI/ELM team for several months. What drew us together was the shared values of how we conduct business – treating our employees well and partnering with our valued clients,” says Jennifer Zuccaro.

Through the course of nearly three decades, Zuke’s has developed a very strong local presence and a reputation of quality and customer service relating to commercial landscape maintenance. The entire staff is being fully retained, including field personnel and management.

ELM Division President Ron Reitz says this acquisition brings new talent into the LDI/ELM team as the company extends its maintenance reach into Northern California for the first time. “We continue to grow and push our maintenance division to new heights. We are very excited to bring Zuke’s into the LDI/ELM family,” says Reitz. “Their pride of ownership, commitment to staff and clients aligns perfectly with our way of doing business.”

Gary Horton, LDI President and CEO, said the acquisition is an important next step in the company’s continued growth and commitment to growing the maintenance segment of the business. “This is a great addition to our LDI family and one which solidifies our position in a key market,” says Horton. “This acquisition also allows us to consolidate our local construction and maintenance teams into the best-in-class regional facility, bringing our local talent together under one roof. We continue to pursue acquisition opportunities to grow our business and to provide the best service levels to our valued clients.”
