Acquisition expands SLC’s presence into the Pacific Northwest market.


Sperber Landscape Companies, Westlake Village, California, partnered with Oregon-based, Crystal Greens Landscape Inc. This partnership marks a significant emergence for SLC into the Pacific Northwest market.

Headquartered in Clackamas, Oregon, Crystal Greens, was founded in 1990 and has grown to include multiple facilities servicing the greater Portland, Vancouver and Salem metropolitan areas. Crystal Greens has been recognized by Oregon Business for consecutive years as one of the top five “Best Companies to Work For” in the state.

Founder and CEO Pat Murphy will continue his leadership of the company alongside General Manager Jason Sutton and his existing management team.

Regarding the new partnership with Sperber, Murphy says, “This is literally a dream come true for us. I have spent many hours over the years studying the Sperber family’s business model, implementing similar best practices with our own flavor, so it was an obvious choice. We are very excited to join SLC and continue to make a difference in the lives of people.”

“Pat Murphy has created an energetic and enthusiastic culture at Crystal Greens that can be felt when speaking with their employees and clients,” says Richard Sperber, SLC’s managing partner. “It’s a special company that does excellent work, and I’m honored to join forces as we move SLC forward into new areas of growth.”
