Business Built on Honesty, Hard Work & Family

Who Are We

Paving from Texas to Tennessee

It all started back in 1947 when the city of Amarillo, Texas needed to paint a center line down Main Street—a legacy was born. Since Great Uncle Alvin Garrett painted that first drive lane, four generations of the Garrett Family have provided line striping throughout the Southern United States.

Since then, our family has gone on to found Lone Star Paving in Nashville, Tennessee. Our company provides comprehensive services for any surfacing project from the initial grading to the asphalt paving and seal coating, to concrete roads, and road signs. Our goal is to communicate effectively with our clients, and focus on providing quality work that you can trust.

Mike Garrett – Founder of Lone Star Paving

Mike started out young, learning everything about the paving business from his father in Houston, Texas. Mike moved his family to Nashville in 1995 and has been providing parking lot maintenance services to Middle Tennessee ever since. He started his asphalt surfacing business believing that our competitors’ finished product and customer service can suffer due to their concern for cutting cost. With this in mind, he began building his business focusing solely on quality work and superior customer service. Mike has accumulated over 31 years of experience in asphalt maintenance, all while keeping these same philosophies.

Lone Star Paving’s Growth Continues with Stephan Garrett

Like father, like son. Stephan also started early, learning everything he could about asphalt—and joining the crew every chance he could get starting at just 14 years old. Having grown up in the business, Stephan has grown to love providing the same quality asphalt maintenance that his father has for years. After graduating from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga with Bachelor’s degrees in Marketing and Entrepreneurship, he has joined his father in ensuring that Middle Tennessee is provided with outstanding parking lot maintenance.
