The Loving Companies has been named one of the largest landscape companies in North America by Lawn & Landscape magazine.

In May of every year, Lawn & Landscape Magazine releases its Top 100 List, highlighting the 100 top performing companies in the landscape industry. “The 100 companies on this year’s list are examples of what makes the landscape industry and its people so great…” says Lawn & Landscape Editor and Associate Publisher Chuck Bowen, “determination, dedication and serving a purpose greater than themselves.”

The Loving Companies is excited to announce its arrival on the 2016 Lawn & Landscape Top 100 List for the first time ever. “We are a super young company so are really thrilled to make the list.. With 2016 marking the beginning of our strategic expansion into markets outside of Charlotte, NC, we feel that the growth has truly just begun,” states Founder and President, Mike Haynes. “We really are humbled to be amongst such incredible organizations that we have such respect for, many of which have been in business longer than many of us on our team have been alive,” Haynes adds with a grin.

“The Loving Companies is made up of three separate companies; The Loving Group, which specializes in Landscape Construction and Maintenance, TerraROK, which specializes in Outdoor Living, and TLG Turf which has a focus on growing quality sod for our landscape operations,” states Mike Fratoe, Director of Sales and Marketing. “We have an incredible team that has put forth a lot of hard work to position our company for such exponential growth, therefore are very excited to begin what we believe is just the start of an incredible journey,” adds Fratoe.
