Azalea Capital Invests in Landscapers Supply

Azalea Capital is pleased to announce a recent investment in Landscapers Supply Inc., which is headquartered in Greenville, SC.  Landscapers Supply was founded in 1991 by owner Mark Ells, who remains an owner in the business.  Landscapers Supply began with one location in Greenville, SC.  Since that time, four additional sites opened in Simpsonville, Easley, Anderson, and Greer, SC. A sixth location, in Seneca, SC, is scheduled to open in the spring of 2023.  At three of these locations (Greenville, Easley, and Greer) an Ace Hardware store is co-located at the Landscapers Supply site.     


Landscapers Supply offers high-end equipment and repair services, as well as seed, fertilizer, mulch, firewood, stone, and various irrigation products across its five locations to meet the needs of commercial and residential landscaping contractors.  The company also meets the traditional hardware needs of retail customers within its service area through its Ace Hardware stores.   Landscapers Supply offers industry leading mowers and maintenance tools from suppliers such as SCAG, Toro, Stihl, and Husqvarna, and is a major regional dealer for Big Green Egg, Weber and Traeger grill products.   


 We are excited about the new partnership with Azalea Capital, which will allow us to continue to expand into other regions of South Carolina, as well as Western North Carolina and Northern Georgia.  Our team will grow with our footprint, as we continue to focus on better serving our customers with new locations and new product offerings.
