Timberline Landscaping recognized by trade publication 

Timberline Landscaping was featured on Landscape Management’s “LM150 2019” list that represents approximately the top 1 percent of U.S. landscape industry companies.

Landscape Management released its 2019 list of the largest landscape companies ranked by 2018 revenue. Timberline Landscaping ranked 128th for its 2018 annual revenue of $15.5 million.

In “LM150: Exploring the Possibilities,” Timberline attributed its growth to its recruiting program, business structure and key client relationships.

This year, Timberline began a “Gap Year Program” designed for students who have either recently graduated from high school or who are attending college and may want to take a year to explore the adventures the area has to offer. The program also introduces them to the landscaping industry by providing a paid position and benefits at the company.

Timberline Landscaping adapted a new business structure with a C-Suite and individual business units that supported their growth to the LM150 list, the release said.
