The addition expands the company’s Knoxville, Tennessee, footprint.

Landscape Workshop, Birmingham, Alabama, acquired Volunteer Lawn Corporation based in Knoxville, Tennessee. Founder and president of Volunteer Lawn, Wendell Jones, started the company in 1978 in East Tennessee.

“The employees and customers of Volunteer Lawn have always been important to me, and when it was time for Vicki and I to retire, we picked the buyer who we thought would carry on our legacy of customer service and being a good place for our employees to work,” says Jones.

“We are incredibly excited to combine our existing Knoxville operations with the operations of Volunteer Lawn,” says J.T. Price, CEO of Landscape Workshop. “Wendell Jones built the leading landscape company in East Tennessee, and our combined operations have more resources available to serve East Tennessee customers than any competitor. We are fully committed to upholding the level of customer service that Volunteer has established.”

With this acquisition, Landscape Workshop has added new team members from Volunteer. Landscape Workshop looks forward to carrying on the legacy of Volunteer Lawn and remains committed to providing exceptional grounds management services to all new and existing customers.
