Dedicated to Living More Life Outdoors—and Helping Our Neighbors Do the Same
There's something magical about time spent in nature. It's good for the mind, body, and spirit, and it provides the perfect setting for connecting with friends and family. As Central Kentucky landscape contractors, we take pride in creating these spaces for residents and business owners in Frankfort and the surrounding area.
Our work is centered around five core values:
Our experienced, certified landscaping team takes a personal approach to every project. We're here to answer your questions, and we keep you up-to-speed throughout the design and installation process. We aren't happy with our work until you are.
Pride in Craftsmanship:
From plant selection to construction, every decision we make is to ensure you have a high-quality outdoor space to enjoy. We stand by our work.
Grow and Glow:
There's always a new technique or trend in outdoor living, and we strive to stay on top of it all. Learning ignites our enthusiasm and passion for what we do. We'll always be committed to personal and professional development, so we're able to deliver the outdoor spaces that match your lifestyle and your preferences.
Responsible, thoughtful landscaping builds community and protects and enhances the ecosystem. When we work to enrich lives, we're talking about our teammates as well as our clients, community, and the environment as a whole, and we do it through work-life balance, continuing education, and an eco-ethical business model that creates outdoor living opportunities for everyone to enjoy.
Our sustainable systems allow for profit with a purpose: healthy, happy humans and a clean planet.

Meet Andrea and Michael,
Founders of Inside Out Landscape Design
Andrea and Michael Mueller started Inside Out Landscape Design in their home before growing the company enough to move to a dedicated office space in 2011. Those humble beginnings came with a big vision: to offer ecologically responsible landscaping solutions and give their neighbors the opportunity to spend more time outdoors in beautiful spaces made especially for them. That's exactly what they're doing throughout Frankfort and Central Kentucky today.
Andrea grew up in the horticulture industry, working alongside her father, Charlie, in what was then Kentucky's largest nursery—a nursery he founded. She went on to earn a BA in design at the University of Kentucky; she's also Kentucky's only APLD Certified Landscape Designer, and she's certified in Sustainable Site Pavement Systems.
After studying horticulture at the University of Maryland, Michael spent nearly two decades managing landscape crews in Kentucky and became Vice President at Wilson Nurseries. With his extensive knowledge and experience in landscape and hardscape installation, maintenance, tree spading, and drainage solutions, he oversees our large projects and subcontracted work while preparing bids and estimates.
Together, their wealth of knowledge and commitment to ongoing education and professional certification has attracted a team of hard-working horticulture and construction experts who build incredible outdoor spaces for Central Kentucky residents. If you'd like to join us, apply today!
