Barton Grange Landscapes, near Preston, Alpha Pest Control in Stoke-on-Trent, and Enserve in Leeds were all acquired by the green services provider for “undisclosed sums”.

The deals total a combined turnover figure in excess of £5 million. Nurture Group’s revenue is set to exceed £125 million this year.

Alpha Pest Control and Enserve, both pest control specialists, follow the group’s recent acquisition of Rokill Pest Control

The Barton Grange acquisition, the largest of the three, will strengthen the group’s offerings within landscape construction and grounds maintenance Employing more than 40 people, Barton Grange Landscapes was established in 1957 by Eddie Topping, and is now owned by his sons, Peter and Guy.

Commenting on the news, Peter Fane, Nurture Group’s founder and executive chairman, said: “All three businesses are tremendous businesses in their own right and absolutely the perfect match for Nurture. We are delighted for many reasons, not least because together they not only add extra capacity and skills in the Midlands and Northern regions, but each business brings with it tremendously loyal clients in both the commercial and public sectors.

“As an ambitious and award-winning horticultural and landscaping business, branching out and going for growth is in our veins.”
