Say Hi

Who Are We.


Paperbark Landscape Design is a dream come true for me. My view of the outdoors is one that sees the outdoors as an extension of our homes. More rooms so to speak, more rooms to "decorate." Each are deserving of a creative design enhancing the landscape of your home, while at the same time giving the homeowner endless moments of joy. Of paramount importance for me in the design process is the inclusion of the protection and revitalization of our environment. The opportunity to design and enhance your landscape with a creative concept and with great care and attention to detail brings me an abundance of joy. At the same time having the chance to promote thoughtful stewardship of our land gives me great pleasure and pride. “Treat the land well. It was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.”Kim SchneiderOwner, Certified Botanist & Lead Designer

Our Design.


Made up of both fixed material and biological elements the landscape design process results in spaces used for play, work and visual enjoyment. Inspirations and influences can be born out of such things as spiritual traditions, history, sculptures, paintings or memorable places.

Our Mission.

The mission of the Paperbark Landscape Design team is to ornamentally cultivate the soil while at the same time we seek to promote and protect the soil biology and our botanical environments. Paperbark Landscape Design strives to educate our community with regards to the seriousness to protect these environments for our future generations. “Treat the land well. It was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.”

Our Process.

To begin the design process we visit the site conduct a brief interview with the site owner to determine likes, dislikes, feeling or atmosphere desired, specific needs and lifestyle. Data such as sunrise, sunset, wind direction, and shade are collected. Plot plans, as builts, photo’s and measurements are chronicled as well. From here the design is created, presented, approved and installed. Upon completion the owner is given ample guidance for immediate and long term care of newly planted material.

Our Approach.

As a rule, embarking upon each individual design journey is a very exciting time. Paperbark Landscape Design takes great pride focusing on your project as a whole, while paying special attention to the most minute details. It is our guarantee that only the finest botanical specimens are purchased from growers and wholesale distributors. And, our team is committed to steadfast work leading to prompt completion of your project.

Our Goal.

Precisely meeting the client's desires is best achieved when the designer becomes thoroughly acquainted with the natural character, prevailing expression and capabilities of the property being improved. Ultimately our final design unites arrangements of select shrubs, trees, rockwork, terraces, fountains, gardens and flowers with with the house and grounds. Our fundamental commitment to create sustainable designs is always a leading idea.

Our Awesome Services.


The common thread running throughout our services is the protection and promotion of our environment. Creating a sustainable environment is not only desirable for individual residential sites but for the larger environmental context as well. Refining our environment will encourage species diversity of flora and fauna with the hope of nurturing the communities love of nature and stewardship of the land.

  • Design.

    Each design is a customized, functional and aesthetic fusion of the clients' desires along with the site's capabilities and obstacles. Our design philosophy is based on three principles - unity, variety and harmony.

    Soil Enrichment

    Plants will take care of themselves, no need for complex feeding schedules or mind boggling mathematical calculations for chemical rates. Certainly no need for chemicals! More accurately stated, the soil takes care of plants.

    Environmentally Safe Tick Prevention

    According to CDC the highest number of confirmed lyme disease cases occur in June and July. This is when the tick is in the nymph stage and as tiny as a poppy seed. At this stage they are very difficult to see when they have latched on to either a human or a pet.

  • Kim Schneider's approach to our lawn challenges deserves five stars and loads of praise. We built the house 30 years ago on a treed site that we cleared. High on a hill and a lawn dependent on construction soil, a well for water and complete exposure to the sun as well as leaching fields and septic tank, Kim had her work cut out for her. Usually by early summer the lawn would be partly brown and partly crabgrass. By August it would be brown. Kim's expertise in the area of treating ailing lawns without chemicals is unique. Looking at the lawn today we can honestly say WOW you did it. Fives stars, high fives and Brava!!!

  • [The Designer] is proud of no other art than that of softening nature's harshness, and copying her graceful touch.

    Horace WalpoleEnglish Art Historian
  • Paperbark - Kim and her crew (Sugar included) worked their magic on my overgrown backyard. They worked tirelessly, but efficiently clearing weeds and debris; relocated beautiful, but hidden plants and shrubs; and was able to create a sanctuary for us to enjoy. Kim worked with us on creating a vision, which was economical, and she was able to give us the natural feeling we were looking for. Thank you Paperbark!

  • Kim Schneider of Paperbark Landscape Design is a landscape designer that I would recommend to work with to accomplish a desired look in your garden. She is easy to work with and listens to your requests and always comes up with a solution that is researched with a discussion for you to understand the work that will be done. She is constantly taking courses to learn about organic ways to enhance our environment which is important in her landscaping design.
