Mike is originally from Valparaiso, Indiana, and headed south when he was 19. He settled outside the Knoxville area where he was trained by some of the best in the field and learned his love for landscaping. His dream is to leave something beautiful behind that will outlast the sands of time.
While he was in Tennessee, he worked commercially in eight different states in the southeast. He focused on both commercial and residential installations for 14 years.
In 2001 he relocated to Alabama and reopened his own landscape business in 2002. He specializes in all of his work being handcrafted. Whether it be stone, wood, or dirt. For the individiual who wants something of beauty in their yard, that is handcrafted with knowledge and the love of his work, Mike is the man for the job. In fact, we came up with the name of Artscapes from one of his first customers here in the Huntsville area. She called him an artist after he designed and installed a 3 tier stone waterfall and pond in her backyard that she could hear and enjoy from her back patio.
Some of the many projects that Mike installs are listed below.
Ponds Water Features Stone Patios Decks Stone Fire Pits Arbors Tiki Bars
Stone Walkways Plantings Laying Sod Fences BBQ Pits Swing Sets
Outdoor Kitchens Indoor Florida Rooms (landscape and water features inside)
