Lindsay Smith

Chief Estimator

As an estimator, Lindsay plays an instrumental role in the project bidding and awarding process. She often works behind the scenes, and her day-to-day responsibilities require a tremendous amount of problem-solving and attention to detail. Lindsay is a true solution-ist, and works tirelessly to ensure every bid that goes out is flawless.

Lindsay has a breadth of experience in the landscape industry. Her career started long before she graduated from Texas A&M University with a degree in horticulture. While In college, Lindsay worked at a landscape design company as an estimator for commercial projects. After graduating, she switched gears and worked in residential landscape design and sales.

Before coming to work for B&D, Lindsay worked at TexScape, our sister company, doing design, maintenance and sales. Lindsay joined our team in 2016, and is currently our Lead Estimator.

What is the most meaningful project?

In my role, that’s kind of hard to determine, because there are so many projects in different phases of estimating. I’m proud of every project that we are awarded. Recently, after bidding several times over an extended period, we were awarded the Ion Series Project (Montrose Collective) and I’m proud that we received the contract. Winning bids takes time and you don’t get immediate gratification for a lot of them.

What does it mean to you to be a solution-ist?

 I am constantly problem solving here. I’m always having to come up with new ideas, new ways to do stuff. And the list is never-ending!

What is your favorite tree or plant?

I have a couple, but the plumeria is a favorite. It started because my grandma used to grow them around her pool at her house. She would break off a piece and give them to my mom, my aunts, really anyone that showed interest. We have so many little trees that all came from my grandma’s tree that she had 25 years ago. It’s like continuing a bloodline of one specific plant.
