Lindgren Team

A Brief History

Tim Lindgren began his landscape experience as a young boy working with his father, who had a landscape/irrigation and nursery business for more than 30 years. Tim supervised projects from small residential to large high schools and athletic field installations.

He went on to earn a Bachelor of Science degree from Colorado State University in Construction Management. During his college years, he continued to do small landscape and irrigation projects using the skills he learned while working with his father, as well as working for a construction company in the winter months building restaraunts. His attention to detail and quality workmanship were evident even during those early years.

With much prayer and thoughtful encouragement from his wife to be, he chose to postpone a career in commercial construction to try his hand at self-employment in the Green Industry.

Lindgren Landscape was established in 1995 in Fort Collins, Colorado, with Tim as designer, estimator, and installer while his wife took care of the bookkeeping.  Years later, the company has grown to become one of the most respected design/build/maintain landscape firms in Northern Colorado.

Tim’s philosophy has always been to produce the most creative, functional designs possible and install them with a great attention to detail. Tim has surrounded himself with employees and sub-contractors who are excited about their profession and share his values.

From designers to project managers, Lindgren Landscape sets itself apart from the rest. The entire team strives to stay in the forefront of the industry by trying new and innovative ideas and keeping up with the latest technology.

Working with his brother-in-law and wife has given the company a way to maintain a feeling that is close to home, which is appreciated by clients and employees alike.

Looking to the future of the company, managing growth and expanding our service offering to meet customer demand are ongoing challenges.

For now, the focus for Lindgren Landscape remains on maintaining our high standards for quality workmanship and customer service. Tim attributes his success to his faith, his family, and his employees.
