Any type of construction has fascinated RC Laue, owner of Laue's Landscapes since he was a little boy. Being the only boy with four older sisters, his passion became anything to get him out of the house away from them. His father, Bob Laue Sr., owned an asphalt paving company where he had the chance to work with the crews. Starting as a laborer, and eventually earning his chance to operate equipment, he learned the in's and out's of a family business. He had an extraordinary work ethic from a very young age.
When RC was a junior at Kettle Moraine High School, his family lost their beloved wife & mother to cancer. This was devastating, but then another blow was dealt to the Laue family when only a year later, his sister Ronell, joined her mother following a car accident.
RC threw himself into work, and left WI, following the paving company he was working for in WI to Phoenix, AZ.
While working his way up the ranks at the paving company, RC continued his education taking a land surveying course, where he met Suzan, his future wife and mother of his four children. In 1998, while pregnant with their third child, the decision to move back to Wisconsin to give their children a better education and healthier lifestyle was made.
RC joined the operator's union and went to work for Payne & Dolan. Suzan was a stay at home mom, taking care of their four children, working odd jobs to help make ends meet. RC owned a tractor he had brought from AZ and started to pick up extra work grading yards and installing lawns for new residential construction. Eventually, RC's side work became more lucrative and a family decision was made to become entrepreneurs and Laue's Grading was established in 2001. In 2006, Laue's opened a retail store in Genesee. In 2008, Laue's expanded and opened a landscape material yard in Dousman, where they are located presently.
