Franz and Vicki Witte
51 Years In the Making
In the summer 1971, Franz and Vicki Witte started a Boise landscaping company. No nursery, no maintenance department, just a young couple and their aspirations to build and install awesome landscapes. What started as a summer job turned into one of Idaho’s most successful landscape, maintenance, and garden center companies.
In 1985, Franz Witte’s wife, Vicki, placed an order for 100 pink plastic lawn flamingos. Alas the flamingos showed up and to everyone’s surprise they arrived in pairs… 200 lawn flamingos later, Seneca Hull, President of Franz Witte decided the flamingo would make a perfect logo and that’s why we call it our mascot today!
