The Clendenin Consulting Group, based in Vero Beach, Fla., announced the acquisition of Luv-A-Lawn and Pest Control by Fairway Lawns.

The acquisition provides the owners of Luv-A-Lawn and Pest Control an exit strategy, and provides Fairway Lawns with a foothold in an important Florida market.

“We are thrilled to partner with the Luv-A-Lawn team and add their high-quality brand to our growing platform,” Kyle DeMilt, CEO for Fairway Lawns, said in a news release. “The addition of Luv-A-Lawn enhances Fairway Lawns’ mission of providing industry-leading quality and service to our customers.”

Joe Valentine, owner of Luv-A-Lawn and Pest Control, added, “Selling my company was a big decision, obviously. We built a large company in both lawn and pest control and have a great team serving central Florida. Finding a buyer whom we felt comfortable with in taking care of our customers and team members was a priority. Greg Clendenin and The Clendenin Consulting Group did an extraordinary job in this whole process and Fairway is the right partner for the future.”
