Landscape Installation – Louisville, KY

Certified Professionals

With a Passion for Creating Exquisite Outdoor Spaces

At Inside Out Landscape Design, our landscape installation crew takes your plan, created in collaboration with you by the only APLD-certified landscape designer in Kentucky, and brings it to life. With a high level of training and years of experience, our dedicated team completes every project on time and on budget with respect for your Louisville, Kentucky property, attention to the fine details, and a commitment to safety. 

Throughout the project, we'll keep you up-to-date on our progress, giving you the opportunity to ask questions and share feedback as we go along. When you're completely happy with your finished landscape installation, you'll receive care information sheets to help you tend to your plants, protect your hardscaping, and schedule follow-ups as required. If you'd like our help maintaining your upgraded landscaping as the years go by, we'll put you in touch with our maintenance services team. We're always here to answer your questions—that goes for past, present, and future clients alike.

The Inside Out team has lived and worked in Kentucky for years (and most cases, a lifetime!), and we put our extensive knowledge of the Louisville, KY soil and climate to work for you. No matter your style – formal to wild, our sustainable solutions, including Kentucky native pollinator-friendly plants, permeable pavers, and thoughtful irrigation and drainage solutions, make it easier and more affordable for you to maintain your property. We use high-quality materials and ensure your features are built to last.

A Look at Our Work in Louisville and Beyond

We treat our clients—and each outdoor space—like the individuals you are. The result is a unique landscaping design that enhances your existing architecture and takes your lifestyle into consideration. Take a look at some of our landscape transformations, each completed with different challenges and under different budgets:

A Process Designed for Simplicity and Enjoyment

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, plats, house plans, survey, etc.!) to help us get to know your landscaping challenges, aspirations, and preferences.


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! Our in-person consultations range from $150-300+ (depending on your location).

Sign the Design Agreement and Put Down Your Deposit

Within 24 hours of your consultation, we will send you the agreement. These are priced at a flat rate based on your existing site and the complexity of the design, with simple designs starting around $1,500, full site plans for large properties ranging $5-10,000+. Extensive outdoor space projects (our specialty and majority of our projects) are 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

Design support staff will measure and evaluate the site and will reach out to you to arrange the best time to do this. They pass that information on to our designers, who get to work on your design. For especially large projects, the designer may be in touch throughout the process to see what you think of the concepts. You'll receive the final concept for review before we estimate 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, and more. The Construction Agreement will be created once the design is approved, is customized for your property, and we aim to be as detailed as possible, which allows us to offer an accurate estimate.

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 are 30% upon signing, 30% when we begin the work, 20% when the hardscaping is complete, and the final 20% percent when the entire project is done.

You'll hear from us to schedule an approximate start date, and we'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!
