M&A April 2021


Villiger Arnosti Gartenbau AG, a landscaping company based in Root, Lucerne, became the newest member of the GarLa Gruppe at the end of April 2021. The company offers services in the areas of garden planning, horticulture and garden maintenance. It was founded in 1999 by two qualified master gardeners, Markus Villiger and Hans-Peter Arnosti and has since built a reputation for perfectly thought-out and sustainable gardens. The founders are supported in their daily work on site by a 20-strong, highly qualified team of gardeners. To drive maximum customer satisfaction and efficiency, the master gardeners operate with professional software and state-of-the-art equipment.

Along with Erni Gartenbau + Planung AG, Villiger Arnosti Gartenbau AG is another established and strongly positioned business that further strengthens the quality of the service offering of the GarLa Gruppe in Switzerland. As part of the group, both companies will benefit from a close exchange of know-how as well as mutual project support in order to provide and deliver the highest level of service and customer satisfaction.

The GarLa Gruppe offers its customers high-quality services in the field of gardening and landscaping. The customer base mainly includes private clients as well as corporate and public clients who place a high value on reliability and experience.
