Heritage Landscape Supply Group acquired Atlantic Mulch & Erosion Control, an independent distributor of mulch and soil, pavers, natural stone, bulk materials, and other complementary landscape products. Apex, N.C.-based Atlantic Mulch & Erosion Control was founded in 2004 by Brent Booker and Dan Pleasant.

“I am excited to announce our partnership with Atlantic Mulch which represents our third acquisition since March 2021 in the rapidly growing Triangle region of North Carolina,” Matt McDermott, president of Heritage Landscape Supply Group, said in a news release. “Brent and Dan have built an attractive business alongside their extremely dedicated and talented team that is an excellent fit with our existing footprint. The combined strength and resources of Atlantic Mulch, Scott Stone, and Southern Stone Supply working in unison allows us to form a market-leading platform and deliver best-in-class customer service.”

To ensure continuity and consistency for customer and supplier partners, Booker and Pleasant will continue to lead Atlantic Mulch.

“Joining forces with Heritage aligns Atlantic Mulch with the fastest growing company in the green industry while also expanding opportunities for our employees, customers, and suppliers,” Booker and Pleasant said in a joint statement. “After being approached by Heritage, we did not entertain offers from any other company, as Atlantic Mulch’s framework for success and core values are consistent with Heritage’s genuine focus on people. The entire Atlantic Mulch team is excited to be joining the Heritage family and we look forward to working with our new partner companies to become the top service provider in the region.”

Heritage Landscape Supply Group is a wholly-owned subsidiary of roofing and building products distributor SRS Distribution. McKinney, Texas-based SRS formed the portfolio group in February 2019.

Since forming, Heritage has acquired Normac, MCS Landscape Supply, Florida Integration Supply, Stone Center of Indiana, Silver Creek Supply Group, Aquarius Supply, Irrigators Supply, Irrigation Station, REAMS Sprinkler Supply, Wolf Creek Company, Atlanta Landscape Materials, Watson Supply, Davis Supply, and Beehive Brick & Stone. In June, Heritage acquired two North Carolina-based companies, Scott Stone and Southern Stone Supply. The company has also opened several greenfield locations under the CPS Distributors and Automatic Supply brand names, and launched the HLS Outdoor brand and platform in the midwest region of the United States. Heritage Landscape Supply Group operates more than 135 locations in 25 states across 21 distinct local brands.
