TurfTech Midwest, a premier lawn, landscape, and sports turf company was founded in 2015. A joint venture between two highly experienced and driven individuals, Jon Smith and Scott Markle.
Jon started Smith Projects in 1996. His business quickly became one of the fastest growing companies specializing in underground utilities, excavation, storm drainage installation to complete build projects.With his vast infrastructure and knowledge of commercial and residential project management, landscaping was a natural extension to the Smith Projects line-up.
Scott started his career in the golf industry after high school. He attended Danville Area College on a golf scholarship, graduating in 1987 with a degree in turf grass management. He has since managed several public and private golf courses over the years and in 1996, supervised the construction and grow-in of an 18-hole golf course. In 2000, Scott started his own lawn and sports turf company while still working as a superintendent. In 2015, the duo combined their experiences and resources to form TurfTech Midwest.
