In the anxiously awaited May 2023 issue of Lawn & Landscape Magazine, Stay Green Inc. is ranked No. 85 among the Top 100 landscaping industry firms in the entire United States and Canada. This great honor, bestowed upon our firm at least three years in a row, is based on such evaluation criteria as revenue and staff size: Stay Green achieved $36 Million in revenue in 2022, with a staff of 426.
Our entire team gets the credit for this. They have stayed strong and committed to our motto of being The Natural Choice for Professional Landscape Services despite:
- The lingering challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, which, beginning in early 2020, caused labor shortages and interruptions at home and overseas resulting in supply-chain issues still evident today;
- California’s years-long drought, which finally seems to have abated, at least for now, thanks to this year’s wet winter; and
- Higher fuel prices and inflation as a result of the Russia-Ukraine conflict.
No one company operates in a vacuum. External forces can impact any firm’s output and profit margins in strong financial years, as well as during difficult years—in the face of a crisis or multiple crises happening at the same time. But despite the adverse conditions Stay Green has had to face over the first few turbulent years of the current decade, our employees’ commitment and superior service to our clients have kept us ‘staying green.’ It is our dedicated and talented workforce that continues to put Stay Green, and Santa Clarita, California, where we are headquartered, on the Lawn & Landscape map year after year. They have kept us going strong for 53 years, since our humble beginnings, when my dad, Richard Angelo, launched the business out of our garage.
But what makes me especially proud of Lawn & Landscape’s Top 100 recognition is this: All of Stay Green’s clients are commercial clients who demand the highest quality service. These clients include homeowner associations, municipalities, retail centers, amusement parks, resorts, cemeteries, sports complexes, schools, and hospitals throughout the 10 contiguous counties of Southern California, from the Southern Border to within an hour of Death Valley National Park in the east, to Morro Bay, Cambria and the Channel Islands in the west, and everywhere in between, including the large urban areas of Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino counties. They are discerning clients with diverse needs who hold us to high service delivery standards. And the team that faithfully and continuously meets those standards is the team that makes us an award-winning professional landscaping firm. And it is the team that makes me, as a CEO, both humbled and very, very proud.
Knowing this, we hope you, too, will allow our team to help your valued commercial landscaping Stay Green!
