About Us

Our History

Savage Land Solutions is a complete commercial land construction company operating in all major regions across Texas and Utah. Savage Land was established in late 2018 and began full scale operations thereafter. Savage Land started with absolutely nothing and in just 4 years of business is now executing multiple high-profile projects, some at nearly $2M in size, and competing with some of the largest firms in the United States that have been around for decades.

To date the company now has offices in Austin, Wimberley, and San Antonio, along with a mobile office in Salt Lake City, Utah. In 2022, Savage Land became a proud member of the National Association of Landscape Professionals and is currently working towards our NALP company accreditation as well growing our team of Texas Certified Landscape Professionals through the Texas Nursery and Landscape Association certification programs.
