About Us

CC’s Landscaping is a full service landscaping company that was started by two 10-year-olds cutting their neighbors lawns in 2000 because they did not want to ask their parents for money to purchase sports playing cards. The two continued landscaping around their neighborhood, pulling 21” lawnmowers behind their bikes, with brooms and weed eaters on the handlebars.  

Throughout high school and college, Chris Smith purchased new equipment and expanded the business. Upon graduating high school, Chris attended Lake Erie College for 3 ½ years graduating with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and a minor in Entrepreneurship.  

CC’s Landscaping was incorporated in 2011, and continues to grow. With his years of experience, Chris has not only developed a business, he has created a way to express his passion of landscaping through the pride of his work and commitment of excellent service by knowledge at a competitive price.

Bernardo Coria Quintana

Bernardo was born in Michoacán, Mexico in a farming town where he learned the meaning of hard work. In 2008 he was fortunate enough to come to the USA on a visa to landscape. In 2011 he received his green card, shortly after he started working for CC’s Landscaping. His English was poor but his work ethic was not. In a short time, Bernardo worked his way to becoming the lead foreman and an invaluable member of the team. Five years later he is not only lead foreman but is also in charge of Hardscape, lead mechanic, residential snow removal, and visa worker relations for CC’s. We see big things for Bernardo and the sky is the limit. He is currently studying to become Landscape Industry Certified as an Irrigation Specialist. Bernardo currently resides in Mayfield with wife Daniella, a Director at Dino Palmieri Salon, and with their daughter Analenna.

Francisco Carlin

Francisco was born in Leon, Mexico and moved to the USA as a child. He started with CC’s in 2015 with no previous landscaping experience. From the start, we knew he was an all-star. After only 2 months he was promoted to a foreman and hasn’t looked back since. He has a keen knack for business and understands the logistics of the bottom line. He willingly steps into various roles in times of need. He is always the first one in the door with coffee and donuts, getting things ready for the day. Not only does he assist in visa worker relations, he can successfully work in every aspect of landscaping. During the heart of busy season in the spring of 2016, two of our lead men were out for three weeks and Francisco stepped up. He continued to run his own crew but also made sure that the other two crews ran without missing a beat. He can handle anything thrown at him which makes him a rare landscape professional with his ability to bounce from different crews and lead them. We see big things for him and are honored to have him on our team. Francisco currently resides in Mentor.
