The SmithScapes Team

Dale Smith

Owner/Operator
Dale has been passionate about landscaping for many years. At the age of 12 he began working in the sector and following High School he gained qualifications in horticulture. Growing up in Rakaia, it allowed Dale to experience rural landscaping projects right through to maintaining town house gardens and lawns on a regular basis.

Initially Dale’s business was a part time operation – but demand grew quickly and six weeks later he had his own full time business. Thriving on seeing a project from start to finish, and completed to a high standard, Dale enjoys the challenge and variation of work and client requests.
