Midway/Versailles (Woodford County), KY Outdoor Living

Sustainable, Beautiful, and

Designed and Built With You in Mind

Your outdoor living space is an extension of your home in Woodford County, a place for a connection, and an invitation to enjoy all the peace and beauty Mother Nature can provide. When you customize it to include beautiful plants and finely crafted hardscape features like pergolas, walkways, permeable paver patios, built-in grills and seating areas, a pool, and more, you'll have a reason to be outside. There's space for whatever it is you love to do—cook with your family, entertain guests, read or play games, and start or end your day with a moment of solitude and reflection.

Inside Out Landscape Design specializes in unique outdoor living spaces that increase your property value and transform the way you spend your daily life. Kentucky's only APLD-certified landscape designer works closely with you to integrate your favorite plants, colors, and materials while providing expert advice on pollinator-friendly plants, practical drainage, and maintenance considerations. When you approve your outdoor living design, the installation team takes over, building with precision, pride in their work, and respect for your property.

As an eco-centric company, we work with Mother Nature to support pollinators, protect the soil, and create long-lasting landscapes that are easier to maintain. Contact us today and let's get started on your new outdoor living space in Midway or Versailles, Kentucky.

Putting Mother Nature First Has Never Looked So Good

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:

Our Approach to Eco-Centric Landscapes

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!

In-House Experts for Comprehensive Services

Large or small, your project receives the full attention and commitment of our highly-skilled design, installation, and maintenance teams. We believe in building relationships, so we're always here for you as you get to know your new landscaping. Here's what we have to offer:
