Alex Schmidt Landscape Design is committed to giving our clients creative, environmentally friendly outdoor living spaces.

It has become our passion to change the way people think about landscaping. I have been in the landscaping industry for over 20 years and have seen the idea of landscaping go from a tree, a shrub and a bush to creating sustainable outdoor living spaces that let you get the most out of your little part of Iowa.  

Over the last 9 years I have been an member of the Johnson County Soil and Water Conservation District, having served as chair, vice-chair and treasurer.  JCSWCD is an elected county board with the sole purpose of keeping Johnson County's soil on the land and improving our water quality in both the agricultural and urban setting.  This has led me to serving on the state board Conservation Districts of Iowa as the Region 7 Director and now Vice-President.  

Company history

Alex Schmidt Landscape Design was founded in 2007 with the idea to provide innovative landscape design in the Iowa City area.  

By popular request in 2008 we added installation services for our designs.

Thornbury Permeable Paver Patio

In 2010 we started installing permeable pavers and rain capture systems to mitigate storm water runoff and put some of that rainwater to good use.

We are still growing and looking for new ways to connect people to their outdoor environment and their watershed.
