I designed my first garden when I was 8 years old, using crayons, graph paper, and several of my dad’s seed catalogs. Once I grew up, I decided to get serious about my hobby and earned a degree in landscape design!Now I own my own company, LK Landscape Design, where I focus on beauty, functionality, and sustainability in both my design and maintenance services. My goal is to create spaces that fit a client’s lifestyle, but that also provide food and shelter for neighborhood wildlife.
