Commercial & Residential
For Over 60 Years
Nelson Landscape is based in Waukesha, WI and serves residential and commercial property owners from Mequon to Lake Country. Our company was founded back in 1959 by Jerome Nelson and has been serving Southeastern Wisconsin for over 60 years. As project size and complexity grew, our team has had the opportunity to work with General Electric, The Grand Avenue Mall, Miller Brewery, Bristlecone Pines Golf Course and Reuss Federal Plaza in downtown Milwaukee. By the 90s our company had quadrupled in size and continues to focus on commercial and larger residential projects. We pride ourselves on a distinct architectural style and strong relationships with each of our customers.

The Nelson Way
Nelson Landscape is different from most landscape contractors in the area because we approach each project as a unique challenge and opportunity. We hold high expectations of quality in construction and attention to detail for every project. Our architects specialize only in the design/build process and do not perform any regular property maintenance. From preliminary design concepts through construction and project completion, we make sure each customer’s original vision comes to life. Our team is conscious of budgets and will adhere to all agreed budgeting set during the design stage.
The Nelson team is highly passionate about the work we do. As the third generation of our family takes the over the ropes, we take great pride in this special line of work. Nelson stands behind our family name and we’re happy to provide any additional information or references from our numerous residential and commercial clients.
