EARTHeim (earth-hime) means ‘earth our home’

EARTHeim is part of Katrina Kelly Design. It began in order to create conscious landscape design solutions for everyone to enjoy. Our logo is an Egyptian Lotus, which is a symbol of all things the sun creates.

EARTHeim Landscape Design Studio, LLC was created when I saw the need for more sustainable design in the Bluegrass region. Our goal is to create ‘living landscapes for all to enjoy’, which means a garden that is beneficial to our own life, but also to our pollinators. This means choosing native plants and other good-choice plants that will create a garden that lasts a long time and coordinates with your wants and needs.
