Georgetown, KY – Outdoor Living

Cohesive Design and Expert Installation for a

One-of-a-Kind Property

Live more life outdoors! That doesn't always mean disappearing into the woods for an afternoon. Instead, it can be stepping into your own backyard.

A well-designed outdoor living space invites your participation. It's a place to relax, gather with friends, and enjoy the natural beauty of your property, enhanced by expertly chosen and placed plants, flowers, trees, and hardscape features like patios, fire pits, water features, pergolas, walkways, built-in seating areas, and more. These spaces increase your property value and extend the livable area of your home, giving you more space for the things you love to do.

At Inside Out Landscape Design, we specialize in the outdoor living spaces that truly transform your property and your lifestyle. With Kentucky's only APLD-certified landscape designer, you'll create a space with the features you love, using your favorite colors and materials. Our installation crew will bring it to life, drawing on extensive training and years of experience in Georgetown, Kentucky and the surrounding area. We're committed to completing every project on time and on budget while providing updates and inviting you to share feedback. We make ourselves easy to get a hold of, so you can always reach out with questions or concerns.

We offer sustainable solutions for beautiful landscapes, including permeable pavers, creative drainage solutions, responsible irrigation, and Kentucky native pollinator-friendly plants. Not only are eco-friendly materials and techniques better for the environment, they make it easier for you to maintain your outdoors over the years.

Our Clients Speak Out About Their Landscaping Experiences

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:

Creative Outdoor Areas 

The Joy of Outdoor Living

People are naturally drawn to the fireplace, the kitchen, and any comfortable seating area, and your outdoor living space can become the focal point of your home. Surround your outdoor space with lush native plants, and entertain guests around an outdoor bar and built-in seating area. Later, you can relax on your own, enjoying the sight of your favorite trees and flowers, all highlighted by thoughtful landscape lighting.

You can create a space as unique as you are, complete with features that complement your life. When your patio area is intuitive and functional, you'll be drawn to spend more time out there, taking advantage of the extra space. By building this area in alignment with Mother Nature, you'll feel good about your choices and enjoy a landscape that requires little in terms of water and maintenance to help you save time and money over the years.

The team at Inside Out Landscape Design have worked with many Georgetown homeowners to create incredible outdoor areas. We call upon our years of experience in Kentucky (many of us were born and raised here!), knowledge of local horticulture and construction regulations, and passion for enriching your life at home to design and build a one-of-a-kind space for you. Contact us to learn more and get started.

A Proven Process for Landscaping Excellence

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 $1,000, full site plans for large properties ranging $3-8,000, and an average design rate of about $1,500-3,000. Projects that are out of our work area or may be DIY require a $5,000 minimum design fee. 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!
