Fort Myers-based Juniper Landscaping, a growing commercial landscaping platform expanding its presence throughout the state, received an undisclosed platform investment from New York private equity firm Bregal Partners.
The investment is expected to accelerate the family-owned company’s acquisition strategy as it operates a network of 15 local branches serving more than 1,500 properties, Bregal Partners Managing Director Thomas Kearney said.
Juniper provides a full suite of installation and maintenance services to homeowners’ associations, commercial, government and a variety of other clients in Bonita Springs, Bradenton, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Naples, Ocala, Orlando, Tampa, Venice and Vero Beach. The company was ranked among the 20 largest landscaping companies in the country on the 2021 Lawn & Landscape magazine Top 100.

It is one of several dedicated funds within Bregal Investments, a global platform that has invested or committed over $16.5 billion since its inception in 2002.
