Best Local Landscaper

Franz Witte

For the second year in a row, Franz Witte tops this category. Known for the flock of plastic pink flamingos perched on its lawn, Franz Witte's reputation extends beyond the birds. Since 1971, the family owned business has provided full-service landscaping, including design maintenance and even does water features. Whether your needs are commercial or residential, sweeping or small, Franz Witte has your grounds covered.

2nd Place: Sterling Landscape Design—Established in 1972, Sterling was named for founders John and Lynne Sterling. Longtime employees Lavon Webb and Dan King bought the company in 2015, but the moniker has come to stand for more than a surname. From backyard overhauls to personal gardeners, Sterling means that's the kind of service you'll get.

3rd Place: Urban Escapes—Founders Terri Minder and Vicki Dodd-Minder studied horticulture at Boise State University, and drawing on their education and some hands-on experience, they established Urban Escapes in 2006. A decade later, they're one of the most respected landscape design, installation and maintenance teams around. Talk about homegrown.
