Our Team

Dan Smith, Sr.


In 1981, fresh out of High School, Dan started cutting lawns out of a beat up, old, pick-up truck and has since turned his passion for creating beautiful landscapes into a full hardscaping company specializing in pavers, patios, walkways, retaining walls, landscape lighting, plantings, and irrigation.

Dan busted into the holiday lighting business in 1998 after joining the Christmas Décor network. Christmas Décor by Smitty’s Landscaping has been lighting up the surrounding areas decorating more then 1000 homes each holiday season.
