Welcome to K² Landscapes
K² Landscapes is a landscape design build firm specializing in native, sustainable designs that help to create a story through landscape.
K² Landscapes is committed to creating beautiful, affordable and sustainable landscapes to promote community, provide environmental education, and overall enrich the lives of our clients.
Natural Environment: Our designs enhance the natural environment by restoring damaged systems, by using native plant materials, and by low impact construction solutions
Community: Our designs bring together both neighborhood aesthetic and culture while creating opportunities in the landscapes that allow people to come together.
Education: Our designs provide opportunities for our clients to learn about natural systems, native plantings and their environmental footprint. We will also educate ourselves with each project we take on, learning how to improve our methods of construction and the most efficient plant material for the site we are designing.
