Horses Landscaping Inc. and Garden Center is a family owned and operated business. Located in Northwest Indiana, Horses was established by George Stiscak Jr. in 1980 as a landscape contractor and maintenance company. Originally based out of Lake County in the early 1990’s Horses moved to Valparaiso and began to expand our services.
As horses continued to grow and the demand for landscape services in porter county continued to grow, George decided that in order to keep up with demand and to gain more clients horses needed a place for customers to be able to see the work we do first hand or get any questions about the services we offer answered in person seven days a week. In the spring of 1999 the Garden Center opened carrying only a few bulk materials and a small selection of plants and garden accessories and only utilizing about 2 of the 5 acres the property had to offer.
Soon after the opening of the garden center Georges wife Erica whose passion for plants and the love of art impelled her to take the Master Gardeners class. Upon completion of the course and already having her MBA in creative arts she developed Horses design department and the many unique services it offers!
With George’s commitment to honesty, and giving the customer more than expected and the belief to lead by example, he has created a culture of striving for perfection in all aspects of the company! From the friendly and helpful staff at the garden center to the install department, all Horses employees practice safety first, and do their best to help customers in anyway they can.
As Horses continues to grow we are constantly changing and making improvements to all areas of the company. Come see all the changes and many works in progress as we continue to grow!
