David’s Journey: From Lawns to Innovative Hardscaping for Outdoor Repair

The Smart Scapes story starts way back when David Schmutz was just 12, mowing lawns! Over time, his love for landscaping grew, and he saw a need for better ways to handle all that Tennessee downpours.  

That’s where our expertise lie. We see hardscapes as long-lasting outdoor features like patios, walkways, and retaining walls built with materials like concrete pavers.  David even invented proprietary techniques to make installation faster and easier for his crew, so you get the best results without the hassle.
