Our Story

In 1994, Empire Landscaping was founded by Patrick Wilson, who originally hailed from Iowa. Firstly, Patrick’s journey brought him to the Dallas area in the early 1990s, armed with a background in technical drafting. His initial foray into the world of landscaping began with mowing lawns; nonetheless, his passion soon evolved into a profound study of plants and the art of engineering solutions.

With a deep commitment to excellence, Patrick aimed to not only create beautiful outdoor spaces but also engineer them to withstand the unique challenges of the Texas climate. Consequently, over time, his expertise and services expanded, and Empire Landscaping was born. Today, Empire Landscaping is a trusted name, dedicated to serving the community with outstanding landscaping solutions. In conclusion, Patrick’s journey and dedication to excellence have shaped Empire Landscaping into the reputable and community-focused business it is today.
