The acquisition is Landscape Workshop’s 10th across five states.

Landscape Workshop, Birmingham, Alabama, acquired the landscape maintenance and enhancement operations of Great Oak Landscape Group of Buford, Georgia. The acquisition, which will serve the greater Atlanta area, marks Landscape Workshop’s 10th location across five Southeastern states.

Great Oak Founder Tim Christie along with four account managers have joined Landscape Workshop.

“I’m excited to stay on in my new role as general manager for Landscape Workshop and to expand on what Great Oak Landscape has accomplished in the Atlanta market,” Christie says. “The people I know at Landscape Workshop share the same values of customer service and responsiveness that my team and I do, and I know we will be a good fit.”

Christie started in the landscape industry as a crew member more than 30 years ago and founded Great Oak Landscape Group in 2000 in the garage of his home. Great Oak has grown to three locations in greater Atlanta.

“Tim worked with several of LW’s operational leaders in the past, and as we saw the way Tim built his business, we knew we wanted him on our team,” says Landscape Workshop CEO J.T. Price.
