Our Story

Leonard Johnson and his wife Patt acquired Omaha-based Midwest Turf & Irrigation (formerly Midwest Toro) in the fall of 1980. Leonard, a former Director of Sales and Marketing of The Toro Company, left Toro in 1976 to purchase the Denver-based Barteldes Seed Company changing its name to L. L. Johnson Distributing. These two distributorships then combined under the corporate name of Pattlen Enterprises. In 2005, Leonard’s son James purchased Pattlen Enterprises.

While the two businesses operate from different locations they, and their employees, share the same dedication to superior sales and service for their vendors and customers.
