We're Happy to Hear You Love Your Landscaping

With over 120 combined years of experience in Frankfort and the surrounding area, we've built lasting relationships with our clients. Nothing makes us happier than knowing they're enjoying their outdoor spaces. Here's what a few of the hundreds of clients we have worked with have to say about working with Inside Out Landscape Design:

Working With

Inside Out Landscape Design Has Its Benefits

Aside from clear communication (we're ready to pick up the phone) and accurate estimates (the only time we go over is if you add something to the project), we base our business around our five core values. They guide our actions both in business and in our personal lives, allowing us to create a top-level experience for our clients:

  • First-Class Service: Highly trained and qualified professionals are dedicated to your project from start to finish—and beyond—with prompt communication and consideration of your needs and wishes with every decision we make. 

 

  • Pride in Craftsmanship: We're proud to put our name on our work, and that influences our design choices, plant and product selection, and installation process. Our landscapes have won awards, and it's because we back up our expertise with a true passion for the work. 

 

  • Grow and Glow: We love outdoor living, and we're passionate about helping others enjoy it, too. Our team thrives on continuous learning; we stay up-to-date on trends and techniques that allow us to better serve you.

 

  • Enrich Lives: From our clients to our team members and the community at large, we want to make everyday life just a little better. This means ongoing education, a commitment to work/life balance, and an eco-ethical business model that enriches the environment, as well.

 

  • Ecocentric: The earth is at the center of all we do. Mother Nature wins the day, every day, and it's important to work with her for the benefit of all. We use the techniques and materials that go with the flow of the planet to create spaces that require little time or money to maintain.

Take a look at some of our landscape transformations, each completed with different challenges and under different budgets:

How We Make It Simple to Upgrade Your Outdoor Space

Working with us is simple. We follow a transparent process so you know exactly what to expect each step of the way, and we stay in communication with you as we go. Don't hesitate to reach out with your questions at any time:

Complete the inside out questionnaire

In less than 10 minutes, you can answer a few questions (and even upload a few photos!) to help us get to know your landscaping challenges, aspirations, and preferences.

Schedule an Inside Out Consultation Over Zoom or FaceTime

It's time for a walk-through of your outdoor space, so we can see it and get more information about what you'd like! We can do this virtually or in person. The virtual sessions are free; the in-person consultations range from $100-150, and that amount is fully rebated on your design or install cost.

Sign the Design Agreement and Put Down Your Deposit

Within 24 hours of your consultation, Kristin will send you the agreement with the price of the design plan. These are priced at a flat rate based on your existing site and the complexity of the design, with simple designs starting around $600, full site plans for large properties ranging $3-8,000, and an average design rate of about $1,500-3,000. The Design Phase will begin as soon as we receive your signed agreement and deposit, both of which can be done online.

If your project doesn't need a design, you'll get an estimate within one week of your consultation.

Enter the Design Phase

Becky will need to measure and evaluate the site, and she will reach out to you to arrange the best time to do this. She passes that information on to Andrea, who gets to work on your design. For especially large projects, Andrea may be in touch throughout the process to see what you think of the concepts. You'll receive the final concept for review before Kristin estimates the cost of the project.

Attend the Inside Out Presentation Meeting

It's so exciting to see your ideas come to life! You'll have the information you need to envision the completed project, including all the details, plant photos, Construction Agreement, and more. This Construction Agreement is customized for your property, and we aim to be as detailed as possible, which allows us to offer an accurate estimate (no surprises at the end!).

Sign the Construction Agreement and Make the Initial Payment

After we've finalized the scope of the work, you can electronically sign an agreement to the terms of payment. For small projects, this is typically 40% initial payment and 60% upon completion. Larger projects may be divided into 10% upon signing, 40% when we begin the work, 40% when the hardscaping is complete, and the final 10% percent when the entire project is done.

You'll hear from Kristin to schedule an approximate start date, and she'll send you a detailed production email with the next steps in the installation process along with care and maintenance sheets for your reference.

We'll Get Started!

We'll touch base with you the week before your start date, and the crew will call you when they're on the way to the site on the first day of work. We'll coordinate everything—you can simply sit back, relax, and eagerly await the completion of your revamped outdoor space!

Final Walk-Through

Your satisfaction is our priority, so a foreman or manager will walk through the project with you (if you’re available) before we leave the site. If there are any issues, please give us an opportunity to fix them. We would love you to leave us an online review with your feedback!
