AWARDS

Attention to Detail, Honest Input and Listening to Your Needs Makes for an Award Winning Project

It is not our objective to win awards for ourselves, but rather the accolades that matter most to us are the ones from our clients sing. We get it right, making the site come alive with their dreams and desires – making it truly “award-winning”.

In 2010, we decided as a company to start to share with others projects we knew might inspire them to dream. We entered the “Joseph Pabst Residence” project and were delighted that others could see what our client and we saw – an excellent landscape in which we unwrapped our client’s dreams and brought them to life. For this we were first awarded a Silver Award by the Wisconsin Landscape Contractors Association (WLCA). We then receive a national Award of Merit by PLANET. (To view all the national residential awards given by PLANET.)Finally we capped 2010 off by winning a Gold Award from the Wisconsin Remodelers Association.

2011 has started equally well as we were just recently recognized with a Silver Award by the Wisconsin Landscape Contractors Association (WLCA) for the “Milwaukee Third Ward Rooftop Garden” project. To see more of each project, simply click on the either project below. In the summer of 2012, we were recognized with a national Award of Merit by PLANET and finished 2012 by winning a Silver Award from the Wisconsin Remodelers Association for this project.

2012 brought recognition for our Landscape Management department. Started in 2010 to extend LandCrafters’ quality and protection to our clients’ landscape investment, they received the highest honor – a Gold Award from the Wisconsin Landscape Contractors Association (WLCA) for our work a Mequon Residence. Later that summer, we also were given a national Award of Merit by PLANET for the same project.

2012 and 2013 has already brought multiple recognition to our clients. Two projects – Pond Side Living Rooms and New Berlin Fire Pit both received Gold Awards from the Wisconsin Remodelers Association. Early this year, both projects received additional accolades. Pond Side Living Rooms earned a Gold Award from the WLCA, while New Berlin Fire Pit received a Bronze Award. In addition, our Landscape Management department continued to shine at the highest level – receiving a Gold Award from the WLCA for Woodland Oasis. But this was just the beginning as you can see from our Awards Gallery below – our clients’ project continue to receive accolades.

Congratulations to both our Landscape Construction and Management departments for their continued excellent work that resulted in wonderful projects meeting and exceeding our clients’ expectation! Give us an opportunity to blend your unique desires with our experience and creativity and create your award-winning landscape.
