Remote view of backyard patio with retaining wall. At Smart Scapes LLC, our specialty is creating unique and perfectly customized landscaping projects for our clients. We build patios that are highly detailed and accented to our clients’ exact desires. Start to finish, concept to completion, we are able to create our clients’ imagination into real-life in landscaping. We consult with our clients, multiple times as needed, to create full comprehension on the desired project. We use 3D imaging and drafting software to draw up plans, building the project on the computer screen first and then in real-life. We can tweak project designs with our software, consulting back and forth with our clients until we get a real-life plan of exactly what they want. Nothing makes us happier than creating the perfect project out of our customers' dreams and into reality. So we sat down with home-owners, Jimmy and Tianna, found their Dream and worked out how to make it a Reality!

If you’d like to find out how we can help you with a project of your own creation, call our office at (615) 356-0139!

Short Video Taken During Patio Design - Including Fire Pit and Flowering Plants

You can clearly see our designer filming Jimmy and Tianna's backyard, using her finger to point out what she plans to do with the project. To give our crew members a good idea of what our clients Jimmy and Tianna wanted, our designer pans the camera back and forth across the selected section of the backyard. She points to key areas of the yard, indicating where the walkway from the stairway to the patio will go, indicating an entry point under the porch and a garden space nearby for some beautiful bamboo plants. She talks of covered areas underneath the second-floor deck for an entertainment space. Her focal point is on the fire pit and retaining wall of course, the true center of the patio. She shows us where there will be foundation plantings and flower beds outside the patio to perfectly transition the patio down to the yard itself. Our designer brings to mind the beautiful concepts and great ideas of Jimmy and Tianna's, a project we were thrilled to get started on!

Video Bringing Paver Patio with Retaining Wall and Outdoor Gas Fire Pit to Life

In this video, one of our crew members at Smart Scapes LLC walks the perimeter of the newly completed patio with retaining wall, using his own finger to point to each, completed aspect of the new patio space as it lines up perfectly to what our skilled designer indicated earlier. Our crew member mentions the CNS straw and river rock beds, ideally situated to handle water runoff and to create a perfect transition between the patio surface and the yard itself.

At Smart Scapes LLC, we have a team of designers who work closely, in person, over the course of several days to a week or two, with our customers to custom-design a project. Our designers are often likened to mind readers, as they are able to fully understand the landscaping creation as it exists in the mind's eye of the customer. Our designers use computer technology to render landscaping ideas in 3D, as well as hand sketches, pictures, video content, and other visual presentations to create the exact blueprints for what the customer wants.
  • How can we best prepare for your installation crew?
  • Our installation crews are courteous, friendly, hardworking, fast, and they have an immaculate attention to detail. From the expert placement of plantings, flowers, trees, and shrubs to hand-lain pavers and hardscapes, to perfectly installed synthetic turf, our crews make attention to detail their priority. Preparing for the arrival of our installation crews is as easy as clearing the yard space of tools, toys, furniture, and various other yard implements.
  • How long does it take to complete the average landscaping project?
  • That depends greatly on the size of the project, but most customers can expect one week for the design process, and a few days to one week for the installation process.
