David J. Frank Landscape Contracting, Inc. is partnering with Lied’s Nursery Co. to form a residential landscape division.

Lieds-Frank Residential Landscapes began operating this month as a division of Germantown-based David J. Frank Landscape Contracting.

David J. Frank is the largest landscaping contractor firm in Wisconsin, with locations in Milwaukee, Madison, Brookfield, Glendale and the Fox Valley, and an office that serves Racine and Kenosha, in addition to its Germantown headquarters.
The company has added about 30 Lied’s employees and has grown to 300 employees as a result.

Changing market conditions, including financial trouble that occurred as the economy crashed, had Lied’s looking for a partner, said Tom Lied, a second-generation family owner of Lied’s.

As the economy has continued to stumble along, firms across the U.S. landscape industry have been joining together, said Thomas R. Tavella, president-elect of the American Society of Landscape Architects, a trade association based in Washington, D.C.

In addition to residential services, David J. Frank Landscape Contracting offers commercial landscape management as well as renovations, design/build landscape architecture services and water management services.
