Lowney’s Company History
Like many landscaping companies, Lowney’s Landscaping Center began with a pick-up truck, a wheelbarrow, and a dream in 1997 while Joe Lowney was attending college. Following graduation in 1998, Joe entered into a partnership with his father Dennis, and the business acquired its first tractor as well as its first employee.
The business experienced continued growth in its assets and client base over the next several years. A 2005 real estate purchase and the subsequent construction of our office/shop in 2007 allowed the business to move to its current location on Richmond Street. 2009 saw the addition of our retail garden center.
In 2014 the business acquired property on Wege Road, just a couple of miles north of our headquarters, dubbed the North Site. In 2017 construction finished on a brand new shop at the North Site, and our Maintenance and Construction divisions, as well as our mechanics, have since occupied the premises.
Now entering its 22nd year, Lowney’s employs over fifty-five people, and has grown into one of the most respected landscape companies in the Fox Valley. Services offered include landscape design, construction, and maintenance, indoor and outdoor living renovations, snow removal, and a three season landscape project center.
