mp_casmartscapes3With over 25 years of experience in the landscaping industry, California Smartscape has a master design and construction team made up of women and men from all over the country. Having a wide range of design experience and construction talent, this diverse group offers many perspectives on the best ways to design and build everything outside the home – from outdoor living rooms and cabanas to hardscape, landscape, and pools. Founded in 2009, the company feels they are unique in that they love what they do and are a total resource from start to finish. “We have in-house designers and construction build teams that manage and control the project from beginning to end,” explained California Smartscape owners Jay Gardner and Richard Hafenstein. “We have streamlined the design process with our design center/showroom to review the materials to ensure you know exactly what you’re getting.”
