Founded in 1992 as a landscape company we quickly learned the need for proper drainage in the Tennessee market. We worked to expand our knowledge of quality materials and proper installation techniques to become the leader in mechanical installation for pavers and segmental walls in Tennessee and surrounding states. We provide great value, service, and products to general contractors, developers, grading contractors, and high-end residential clients. We value our team members as the foundation of our company, in turn, they take great pride in their work and turn our clients into long-term partnerships and referrals.

Building Badass Outdoor Spaces Since 1993

Having a concrete driveway is a nice feature for a home.  It makes a house look better as well as creating a cleaner property. Concrete driveway pavers are a great look for a residence but a little more expensive.  So if your old driveway needs to be removed and replaced with a new concrete driveway, we are the people to call.

We Value Our People

Smart Scapes is a company that values its people. Many of our employees have been with us for 10+ years. Our founder, Connie Schmutz, built the company on the morals of integrity and a deep, meaningful value for our people. We cherish both our employees and our clients for the long-term, which is why many of our employees and clients have been with us since the 1990s.

More than just a working team, we’re a working group of like-minded individuals. We empower our employees to develop skills for other activities. David, our CEO, is our company’s life coach and business coach. We’re not a “stuffy” company, and you’ll see that firsthand when you work with us.

What We Do

We specialize in paver work, starting at 250 sq. ft. and going up from there. We install stunning, unique, and custom-designed patios with seating walls, fire pits, and walkways. We use high-tech mechanical install equipment to create a fully uniform, perfect patio or hardscape installation in less than half the time it would take to hand-lay the pavers, saving you time and money.

We also design and install artificial turf, starting at 250 sq. ft. and going up from there. We can design and install synthetic grass for yards, pet boarding facilities, commercial sites, dog parks, pool areas, restaurants, parks, playgrounds, putting greens, etc. Our turf is warrantied for 12 years. We have extensive experience in drainage, and that sets us apart from other turf companies. Our artificial turf does not become soggy and damp because we design a drainage system underneath the turf, a system that is specifically designed for your property.

We use our drainage skills in our retaining walls too. We offer a wide variety of retaining walls, and we can install these mechanically as well. Our walls do not fail because we design them with drainage built into the wall design. And because we design and install our walls with mechanical install equipment, you get a high-end, luxury retaining wall for a fraction of the cost. And did we mention our retaining walls help Nashville homeowners and business owners solve erosion problems?
