Our Story

Brad Tatum is not your traditional landscaper. He grew up in the landscaping and masonry industry in Louisiana, and he started his own landscape and pool maintenance company to pay his way through college at Louisiana Tech over 15 years ago. Armed with a Civil Engineering degree, Brad came to Austin and joined Carter and Burgess where he met his future wife, Amanda Smitheal who worked for the firm in marketing. After four years of civil engineering in Austin and Las Vegas, Brad passed the Professional Engineer exam and soon decided to start a business of his own. His love for the outdoors and his years of experience in construction, landscaping, and masonry coupled with his vision for honest and trustworthy service laid the foundation for the company you see today. GreenScapes Austin has an amazing team of designers, office staff and crew at their two locations – Resaca Plaza in Bee Cave and Crew Headquarters in South Austin. They specialize in landscape design and installation for residential and commercial clients, and have a strong focus in landscape management for large, high profile properties. GreenScapes offers a broad umbrella of related services for improvements to outdoor living, including design and construction of pools and waterscapes, outdoor kitchens, and stonework. Brad's engineering background, including his familiarity with Austin's often difficult drainage issues and his knowledge of green and organic products provide a huge benefit to the business. In addition, he brings fresh styles and innovations in hardscapes and landscape design from other regions to provide a design portfolio that offers comprehensive interest.
