GRAYSLAKE, Ill., April 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Landscape Concepts Management Inc., one of the Midwest's leading and family-owned landscaping firms, announced today that it recently opened a new office in Mequon, WI. Additionally, they've also added a second greenhouse in Bristol, WI where they have their tree nursery.
LCM is not new to the Wisconsin market; the state had been serviced out of the Kenosha office. Due to client demand, LCM's CEO, Mike Kerton felt the need to open a new branch office to better service the area. The Mequon location will be headed by Senior Account Executive, Jesse Bozman. "I'm excited to be a part of this recent expansion driven by the growing Wisconsin market," said Bozman. He will oversee three crews out of the new facility.
Additionally, the company responded to the rising demand by adding a second greenhouse. The first greenhouse was installed late last winter; the idea was to grow quality perennials for our clientele. The greenhouse allows LCM to monitor the crops closely and grow them at an LCM quality standard. The greenhouse Supervisor, Carrie Hancock says, "We get to pick our bare root and plugs, monitor their growth and keep them healthy for installation. Then we handpick our plant material for our clients when we're ready to install. We make sure we bring our clients the fullest and most vibrant plants in our greenhouse." Hancock stated that this new initiative works as an added service for their clients as they are able to keep track of their inventory and propose available plant material.
Last year, 3,000 perennials were grown, sold and installed. This year, LCM is expected to grow 8,500 perennials for the first rotation and by the second rotation in midsummer add another 4,000 bare root and plugs.
