Pool and Outdoor Living Design and Installation for Area Homeowners
Though Midway, Kentucky, and Versailles, Kentucky, are small towns in the shadow of Lexington, they've emerged in their own right as charming, welcoming destinations—and places to call home. Residents value their privacy and take pride in maintaining beautiful streets, parks, and backyards. Here, outdoor living is so much more than a trend. It's part of the fabric of the local lifestyle.
At Inside Out Landscape Design, we specialize in creating the life-enriching outdoor spaces our Midway and Versailles neighbors hold dear. Our landscaping services include outdoor living and swimming pool design and installation, along with maintenance services specifically for our design/build clients, all created in ecological harmony in alignment with your wishes.
With Kentucky's only APLD-certified landscape designer on the job, you can rest assured your property is in good hands. We turn to eco-friendly solutions whenever possible, like pollinator-friendly plants, thoughtful drainage and erosion control, prairie restoration, permeable pavers, edible gardens, and native landscaping. These choices honor the earth and create lasting landscapes for the next generation to enjoy.
When you work with us, we'll customize your landscaping services to address your property challenges and personal preferences. We offer detailed contracts with transparent pricing and more responsive communication than anyone else we know. The answers to your landscaping questions are always just a phone call away.
Many members of our team are Kentucky natives and long-time residents, and we value these communities—because we're deeply a part of them. That also means we have extensive local knowledge on horticulture, climate, and building regulations. Contact us to learn more about our eco-ethical approach to landscaping services in Midway, Versailles, and everywhere in between.

How We Make It Easy to Work With Us
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.
SCHEDULE AN IN-PERSON INSIDE OUT CONSULTATION
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!
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!
