The mission of Paperbark Landscape Design is to protect and revitalize the environment through sustainable landscape design.
At the core of our services is stewardship of the Earth and our natural resources.

Who We Are

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 of us deserves of a creative design enhancing the landscape of our home, while bringing endless moments of joy. Of paramount importance to 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.

Stewardship of Our Land

“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 Schneider,
Owner, Certified Botanist & Lead Designer, NOFA Accredited Organic Land Care Professional (AOLCP).

Our Process

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, rock work, terraces, fountains, gardens and flowers with the house and grounds. Our fundamental commitment to create sustainable designs is always a leading idea.


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.

Reconditioning a failed garden into sublime sustainable pleasure.

5/ 5

Working with Kim Schneider to redesign a failed garden was a transforming experience. The new garden thrives without chemicals and draws from the natural environment that surrounds it. She also gave us “real grass” for the first time in thirty years that survives the winter and more importantly the summer droughts.
