38 LC DBM I n f o r m a t i o n R e q u e s t # 4 1 3 I n f o r m a t i o n R e q u e s t # 4 3 2 Ground Gains Mergers, Acquisitions, Expansions In business in Denver for almost 70 years, Swingle Lawn, Tree & Landscape Care became the ma- jority owner of Oklahoma-based LawnAmerica in a merger of the two companies. The new mi- nority partner employs almost 60 people and has a presence in Tulsa and Oklahoma City as well as in portions of North Carolina and South Carolina. LawnAmerica founder Brad Johnson cited a need to continue to grow and prosper as the reason for the merger with Swingle, which services the Front Range of Colorado and has annual revenues in excess of $20 million. Finding a strong construction market existing in Sacramento, San Jose-based Jensen Landscape opened a new construction branch there and ap- pointed Matt Trenary as the manager of it. Jensen is part of private equity-backed Monarch Landscape Holdings, which is among the top 20 largest com- mercial landscape firms nationally with revenues ex- ceeding $80 million and more than 1,000 employees across four states. Its holdings also include North- west Landscape Services and Signature Landscape Services, both in the Pacific Northwest. Landscape projects currently being evaluated in Sacramento include those in both the public and private sector. Senske Lawn & Tree Care based in Kennewick, W a s h i n g t o n , with 11 op- erations spread across that state as well as Utah, Nevada and Ida- ho, acquired the assets of Lucky Lawns L.L.C., of Meridian, Idaho. Senske is family owned and has been in business since 1947. Presi- dent Chris Senske noted that his company continues to "look to merge with high-quality companies."
