ROCHESTER, Minn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Outdoor Living Supply (“OLS”), a distribution platform for outdoor living products with a focus on hardscapes, announced today it has acquired The Rock Garden (“TRG”), an independent distributor of natural stone, hardscapes, and architectural elements such as mantles and hand-hewn stone furniture. The acquisition extends the OLS platform into California and strengthens its regional presence in the Lake Tahoe market.
Based in Truckee, California, The Rock Garden was founded in 1998 and is a division of Marsh Ventures, Inc. The Rock Garden is the premier natural stone supplier to the North Lake Tahoe and Truckee markets. Their high-quality product offering and commitment to their customers has made The Rock Garden the first choice of local architects, contractors, and homeowners.
“I am proud to welcome the dedicated team at The Rock Garden to the OLS family of companies. This exciting new partnership expands our OLS footprint into California,” commented Brian Price, CEO of OLS. “With its proximity to our Parker Hardscape Supply location, The Rock Garden is an exceptional fit. The combined strength and resources of these two locations will allow us to form the region’s market-leading platform, delivering best-in-class customer service to the Lake Tahoe and High Sierra markets.”
Brian Marsh, President of Marsh Ventures, Inc., added, “We are extremely proud of the business we have built and are confident OLS will be an excellent steward of our Marsh Ventures, Inc. partnership legacy. OLS shares our commitment to providing an exceptional customer experience, along with providing growth opportunities for our employees, customers, and suppliers alike. We are thrilled to have The Rock Garden join the OLS family of companies and look forward to watching the next chapter of growth unfold.”
