Our History

Home / Our History


Lawns of Dallas was founded in 1982 by a horticulturist who focused on high-end landscape maintenance in Highland Park and the Park Cities area. With a passion for old-fashioned customer service and hard work, the company successfully grew from 1 person to over 60 employees and expanded into construction and commercial maintenance services throughout the DFW Metroplex.

In 2017, Madison Gardner, a 3rd generation Dallas resident and UT grad, purchased the company. His goal was to build on the 40 year history and legacy of Lawns of Dallas with a relentless pursuit of excellence, and continue to expand into a more full-service, professional company. The result is an award-winning, emerging industry leader and growing company with over 130 team members that is rapidly becoming the choice of discerning clients seeking high-quality landscape services.

“We have been committed to making the city more beautiful for 40 years. Throughout our history, we have always been locally owned and operated and we plan to keep it that way. Our team is what makes us the best, and we are passionate about taking care of each one of our clients."
