Josh Schmitz, Project Manager

Hello there!  I’m Josh Schmitz.  Due to having too many Josh’s in the company, most everyone here calls me Schmitz.  So, hi there!  I’m Schmitz!  I’m a Project Manager for this fantastic hardscapes company.  I run/manage a wonderful crew that includes 3-5 members, pending the size of the job.  These crew members make my job a delight, and allow this company to function efficiently.  I deal with the day to day aspects the second my crew and I step on your project. My main concern is the customer’s approval and happiness.  Any questions or concerns can be directed to me! I’ve been involved in construction for most of my adult life, roughly 18 years.  Took a minor sabbatical about a decade ago to play poker professionally.  Sure did.  It was an amazing experience.  And yes, I miss it.  A LOT! Now my life includes my wonderful wife of 3ish years, a new home in Brookside, and a newish baby boy, Charlie.  He is currently 4 months and an absolute joy!  That’s a little look into my role and my life.  Thank you for considering us for your outdoor living space!

Hey there, my name is Kit. I’m a part owner and project manager here at Kansas City Hardscapes. I also oversee operations with my right-hand man, Derek. I have been working with Derek in construction since we graduated from Blue Springs High School in 2003. I participated in votech/construction trades my junior year in high school and it became my passion. I fell in love with the skills and knew it was what I was meant to do. A typical day consists of me being on-site with our crews, speaking with clients about upcoming projects, and spending time on maintenance. I’m married to the love of my life, Jenna; we have the most beautiful boy and a new baby on the way. If I’m not with my family, you can find me on a golf course or sitting around a fire pit. I look forward to meeting with you soon!
