Southview Design makes the Top 100 list

Southview Design has been named to Lawn & Landscape magazine's list of the Top 100 largest landscape companies in North America for the 2nd time.

“Increasing demand for residential design-build services, combined with the addition of a commercial services division has put us on the list,” says Chris Clifton, Southview’s President and CEO. “I believe we will continue to grow, due in large part to the hard work and professionalism of our team.”

The Lawn & Landscape Top 100 list is based on 2018 revenue from landscape profit centers as reported by each company listed. Companies on the list earned total revenue of $10,221,735,143 in 2018, which is an increase of $603,045,036 or 6.27 percent, compared to 2017. The average expected growth for 2019 is 10 percent. Companies on the list also reported total employment of 97,269. Eleven new companies were added to the list this year.

Executives from these companies were also invited to the Lawn & Landscape Top 100 Executive Summit and Awards, sponsored by Kohler, Exmark and Horizon Distributors. The event, which took place in Dallas, gives executives from the Top 100 companies a chance to network with each other while also receiving high-end education.

“The companies that appear on our Top 100 list have produced more than $10 billion in revenue in the green industry, says Brian Horn, editor of Lawn & Landscape magazine. “In an industry that continues to grow, these companies are major reason for this upward trend. The list is a way to acknowledge the companies, while the event gives them the opportunity to learn from each other.”

This year’s list was compiled by Lawn & Landscape editors in the first half of 2019.
