Looking to Grow or Exit Your Business?

We’re Looking to Buy Commercial Landscaping Companies

We are actively seeking acquisitions of various sizes within the commercial landscape space in the U.S. and Canada. Our team is looking to partner with similar companies to expand our footprint while preserving the family culture for which Schill Grounds Management is known. Our strategy is not to do several acquisitions and flip them for short-term gain. Our goal is to partner with like-minded companies poised for long-term growth and success that:

  • Have great cultures
  • Are aligned with our values and goals
  • Put people at the forefront
  • Love process, order, and continuous improvement

We are operators at heart and understand the success drivers and challenges of running a successful landscape business.

Partnership Alternatives

If you’re an owner of a like-minded organization with a deeply rooted culture and business practices, we welcome the opportunity to discuss partnership alternatives, including:

  • A full sale and immediate or near-term retirement
  • A full or partial sale and longer-term transition into retirement
  • A full or partial sale where you continue to run your business “as-is.”

Advantages of Partnering With Schill

  • We provide a “home” for your employees and customers
  • We work to preserve and protect your legacy (including your company name)
  • We’re long-term oriented
  • We assist with post-transaction management
  • We provide access to a peer group of like-minded owners who have partnered with Schill. Read about our recent partnerships here.

People-Focused Culture

Culture is an integral part of business, and it all starts with your purpose — why you are in business. Culture isn’t just saying you value your employees. It's about making efforts to engage employees and welcome them as part of our team and larger purpose. We have spent considerable time building a culture focused on people. No matter which company we partner with, understanding the organization and its culture — and whether it’s in line with ours — is critical to the success of our acquisitions.
