Mark Schmitt Sr


I consider myself an entrepreneur as much as a landscape contractor. This was sparked at age 13 when my father encouraged me to be my own boss. He never talked about where that goal would lead, but it spoke to me at the time. As I grew up, I was excited about the challenge of working for myself. Finally, at age 18, I started my own business with a passion for landscaping and a $500 graduation gift I received from my grandmother. That was in 1979. Today, 40 years later, Schmitt’s Landscape Company has evolved into a full service landscape company that prides itself in the design, creation, and maintenance of quality landscapes. Above all, working for great customers is what I enjoy most.

A native of Wheaton, I graduated from College of DuPage and Wheaton College. My wife, Colleen, and I have raised 5 children.
