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 LLC Landscape Design Studio was created when I saw the need for more sustainable design in the Bluegrass region. Our goal is to incorporate good choice and native plants into the landscape that coordinates with the client’s wishes and taste.
I love to show how native plants can be used aesthetically within a landscape. Native plants do better in our Kentucky landscape because when put in the right location, they are hardy to our climate & soils. Another reason we chose native plants is to help our pollinators and to bring ‘local’ back through our native flora.
