We are proud to announce ArborScape has earned national recognition as a Landscape Management Industry Hidden Gem, a list from Green Industry Pros. Specifically, ArborScape has been named number 13 in the nation’s landscape and lawn care industry as a leading business both in terms of sales growth and better business practices. ArborScape is dedicated to providing a beautiful and sustainable landscape for our Denver and High Country clients. We promote the art and science of horticulture.
Sales growth was a large factor in determining which entities would make the list. ArborScape’s growth trend since 2007 has been 237%, which places it solidly in the 13th spot in this national Landscape Management Industry Hidden Gems listing. This list includes 45 companies with at least 40% growth in a 6 year period. Although sales growth is a leading factor to place a company on this list, the Green Industry Pros also examined each company’s business practices.
ArborScape also made the list due to its better business practices and values. ArborScape is committed to building a green, community-based, flourishing business that prospers with every action each team member contributes to the equation. The family-owned business promotes a team working together to cultivate a strong work environment with growing opportunities for its employees to make a difference in the company and provide quality service to the community in a green, positive manner.
Company roots are strong and perhaps much of its success is based on its history. Based in Englewood, Colorado ArborScape was founded in 1996 and has grown from a one-truck operation. David Merriman, owner of ArborScape, comes from a line of tree and lawn care professionals. His father provided tree services for many years during David’s youth. David began learning about the trade at the young age of 10 as he worked alongside his father in the Greeley, Colorado area. As he matured, he studied horticulture at the University of Wyoming, Tarrant County Junior College, and Front Range Community College. To continue the tradition, David has successfully kept his family in the mix. Just as David worked alongside his father, David’s daughter Meagan Ford works beside him as an estimator and office manager. David continues to include motivated and hard-working family members into his business. All his family members who are involved with the business are thankful and proud to be part of the ArborScape team. ArborScape is a family-based company and it continues to promote family values and welcome many other families into the business.
