The Greenery is pleased to announce that we’ve expanded commercial landscape operations to the Greenville and Spartanburg, South Carolina area! The location of this new maintenance branch will allow The Greenery to provide the same extraordinary level of commercial landscape services to businesses in the Upstate that other coastal regions of the state have enjoyed for decades.
CEO Lee Edwards shared, “We are excited to bring our employee-owned company to the communities of Greenville/Spartanburg and look forward to providing quality commercial landscape services to the people and businesses in this area.” The expansion is a part of The Greenery’s recent growth into parts of Georgia, South Carolina and Florida. “Moving into the Upstate has been a goal of The Greenery for a long time,” said Edwards, “and we are proud that it is now a reality.”
As of July 1, 2020, The Greenery acquired the assets of Rivertop Contracting’s South Carolina Division headquartered in Greenville. The Greenery will offer commercial landscape services to local businesses, municipalities and POAs in the Upstate.
For the past 12 years, The Greenery has proudly transitioned into an employee-owned company, with over 800 employee-owners. Employee ownership has proven to be the catalyst for gaining a successful position as a thriving leader in the landscaping industry. The expansion into the Greenville/Spartanburg market is another opportunity to welcome new team members into a company that prioritizes investing in their people.
Lawn & Landscape Magazine recently published an interview with Janet Davoli of The Greenery. Davoli is the Chief Technology Officer, providing executive leadership for the employee-owned, regional landscape service provider, which has ten branch offices and 650+ employee-owners serving markets in South Carolina, Georgia and Florida. Lawn & Landscape was certainly warranted to seek Davoli’s opinion for their June 2020 special edition – she is an accomplished executive with extensive experience in operations, business development, and marketing. Her duties at The Greenery have included sales forecasting, long range strategic business development, and sales force management. During her tenure at The Greenery, she has forged teamwork and commitment throughout all levels of the organization.
Technology specialists are not all that common in the landscape industry. As technology rapidly changes the equipment and management tools used by the industry, the need for technology experts is growing. The article quotes her as saying, “The industry has been slow to adapt to technology but it is catching up. Once a company does start investing in better technology, she says to take it slow. The Greenery took that approach when rolling out autonomous mowers, starting out with just one when we started two years ago and have 15 deployed now.”
The magazine’s special edition features interesting stories and information about how green industry companies from across the country are adopting technologies, ranging from robotic lawn mowers, drones, and business management software. The 2-page section highlighting Davoli and The Greenery is among the key components of the report. This speaks to The Greenery’s leadership in the industry and its commitment to incomparable customer service.
