I was only 16 when I started working at a local garden center in my hometown, and I knew right away that I was going to devote my life to the landscaping industry.
My passion is helping people complete their homes by creating the backyard of their dreams. I know my way around the full spectrum of landscape disciplines, from native plants to heavy construction, but what energizes me most is enriching the lives of our clients, construction partners, and collaborators.
Robert Ingersoll said, “We rise by lifting others.” This is the heart and soul of Living Spaces Outdoor Design.

what others say
"We loved the design that Kimberly provided. Our back yard was small, the existing deck was tiny, and the drop from the house to the yard steep. We met with several landscapers and landscape architects, but Kimberly addressed all of the problem areas, maximized the space and provided a unique design. She also oversaw the installation through Primary Grounds who also did a fantastic job."
