Kim has been designing landscapes for the past 20 years, and specializes in Xeriscaping. Her philosophy is, “Life lived without passion and purpose is life not lived at all. I have the best job in the world. Every single day I am blessed to be able to celebrate the truth.” She loves solving landscape dilemmas and refers to herself as a “detective” by discovering what the barriers are to a client’s enjoyment of their outdoor space and removing those barriers in a way that is practical and beautiful, no matter how big or small their outdoor space may be. She sees herself as a “landscape friend” to her clients and understands the true importance of collaborating with her client in achieving their vision for their property.

Steps to Getting Your Design
A design is a perfect way to understand what your vision for your space would need. You can move forward and have Countryside Nursery and Landscape complete the project or have your own landscaper do the work in stages.
A consultation is scheduled.
We walk your property and study the existing plant material and environment. We discuss your vision, desires and budget for the project. We will have suggestions and options that will work with your vision, always keeping in mind what plant material could thrive for years.
Once we have your vision and take measurements, and note the the type of lighting and shade is available then our residential landscape designers will create a design.
Design Pricing is based on footage, projects and hardscapes.
