Apex, N.C. — Bland Landscaping Company, Inc., a leading North Carolina provider of commercial landscaping management services, has acquired Turf Service Inc. (“TSI”), of Greensboro, N.C.

TSI, founded in 1979 and led by Ray Comer and Greg Blaser, provides full-service landscaping, maintenance, and enhancement services to commercial customers primarily in the Greensboro and Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill areas.

“We are very excited to acquire TSI,” said Kurt Bland, Bland Landscaping’s President and CEO. “Since 1976, Bland Landscaping has been committed to excellence in everything we do. Ray, Greg, and their team have built a strong reputation for quality and excellent customer service, which fits in perfectly with what we are looking for in acquisition partners. As Bland Landscaping continues to grow, TSI provides a leading branch location in the Greensboro area and complements our existing base in the Triangle region.”

Bland Landscaping, based in Apex, is one of North Carolina’s leading full-service providers of landscape design, installation, enhancement, and maintenance services. Its customers include offices, hospitals, universities, municipalities, and homeowner associations statewide, including the Triangle, Triad, Coastal, and metropolitan Charlotte regions.

“Bland Landscaping was the natural partner for TSI, offering the systems to support continued growth as well as opportunities for TSI employees to further their careers. Our clients in both the Greensboro and Cary markets will benefit from this partnership, and I am confident that the future is bright for both our customers and employees,” Comer said.

Over the years, Bland Landscaping – whose in-house team of more than 400 full time landscape experts includes professional turfgrass and horticulture managers, landscape designers, chemical technicians, and floriculturists – has earned more than 100 state and national awards for environmental improvement and landscape excellence.
