About Us

About us

Your landscaping project will be done right.

Evolving Landscapes, a Lee’s Summit-based landscaping company, was started in 2004 by Kris Carrell, who earned his Bachelor of Science in Horticulture from Kansas-State University. Kris is a life-long Lee’s Summit resident who has worked in the landscaping field for 20 years.

Kris’s top priority is making sure clients are happy with their landscaping. He is at every job, personally involved in every step of the process to make sure your project is done right. Larger landscape contractors in Kansas City can’t always promise that level of owner commitment.

Unique Looks

Your home won’t look like all the others on your street.

Many landscape contractors do such a wide variety of tasks that they aren’t familiar with the varieties of plants and trees available. As a result, they often produce “cookie-cutter” landscape designs using the same plants on every project.

Evolving Landscapes can give your landscape a unique look that is custom tailored to your tastes, lifestyle and your home’s architecture. We are familiar with a large variety of plants and trees and know just what conditions they need to thrive in the Kansas City area. We take great pride in making sure your home looks its best. See our landscape design and installation photos for examples of our work.

Competitive Pricing

Because we specialize in landscape design, installation and maintenance, we don’t have the overhead that typical lawn and landscape contractors have (heavy machinery, chemical-spraying equipment, snow plows and storage facilities for all of that equipment). Not having this overhead allows us to keep our prices very competitive.

Sustainable Design

We are dedicated to sustainable landscape design and eco-friendly landscaping. By starting with plant material that is appropriate for the location, and building healthy soil, we are able to control most weeds and pests naturally. When treatment is necessary, we use the least toxic and most environmentally friendly products and practices available.

We value your time

As a small, local Lee’s Summit landscaping company, we strive to exceed our clients’ expectations, both in our work and in the care of our customers. Being extremely responsive to our customers is top priority. We answer our phone and email, and return calls promptly when we’re on the other line.

Follow through

We are also committed to working continuously until your home’s landscaping is complete. We won’t leave your site to work on someone else’s home until your job is done. We pride ourselves on making the process of caring for your home as enjoyable and worry-free as possible.

Your landscaping partner

At Evolving Landscapes, the value we provide shows in our work, and we price our services honestly so there are no hidden costs. Our main goal is to design sustainable landscaping solutions that will delight your family and add value to your property.
