Lawns Ltd. has been in business since 1979 and now with a staff of over 40, is one of the few woman-owned and operated landscape and lawn care companies in the nation. The founder, Lisa Torgersen, has amazing creative talent and her knowledge is well-respected in the landscape and lawn care industry. Feature stories of Lisa’s success ran in Landscape Magazine and the Texas State Technical College’s 50thAnniversary Commemorative Book, as well as the Waco Tribune-Herald.
Lawns Ltd. has grown from a one-woman mowing operation (while Lisa was at TSTC, then Baylor University) to a full-service landscape company with an annual sales volume of two million to three million dollars. The company under Lisa’s direction is known for its creativity and exemplary service. And this proves out when looking at the company’s client base. Lisa’s first commercial client is still a client today. In addition to the longevity of clients, many of the team members have been with the company for more than two decades. Lisa believes her company’s success is due to an insatiable drive to please her clients and a personal goal to treat all her employees with kindness and respect.
As a full-service landscape and lawn care company, Lawns Ltd. works with residential, commercial and municipal clients. And while lawn care comprises the majority of the work done by the company, landscape design is Lisa’s passion. She works with the company’s design department allowing her a creative outlet while establishing and maintaining long-term client relationships.
Lawns Ltd. is involved with the community, and each year the company finds a project or cause to donate time, product and service. This year Lawns Ltd. donated a complete landscape makeover including irrigation, plants, boulders and maintenance to Friends for Life, a local charity. Last year, it landscaped around a group of sculptures installed by the city of Waco. Then they donated a large piece of copper art to be placed in a local cancer center’s healing garden. There are plans to donate services to The Humane Society’s new facility next year.
