In 1965, there was one man, a mower, and a dream. The man was Erv Denig, a registered landscape architect. The dream became one of Northeast Indiana’s premier landscape design companies.
Today, Lawn & Turf Landscaping, Inc. is comprised of many talented and experienced landscape architect/designers and several crews of highly trained maintenance experts. Our facility is located on 20 acres of land off Winchester Road on the south side of Fort Wayne.
