Meet the Kansas City company transforming the high-end residential landscape market. High Prairie Landscape Group was founded in 2010 by Robyn Schmitz when she discovered a need to improve existing landscape standards in the city. She was infuriated at the lack of professionalism she was seeing and was motivated to provide people with a better alternative. Her goal was to create a business that brings high performing professionals together with cutting edge practices so that they could provide something nobody else was providing. Like many companies, High Prairie Landscape Group had humble beginnings.
They started with an old Jeep and purchased their first trailer with the income of their first project. Since those days, the company has grown to 15 professionals and continues to raise the bar on industry standards. They differ from their Kansas City landscaping competitors due to a culture of continual improvement and innovation, a code of ethics they hold the team to, and the belief that their people are their biggest asset. Since their people are their biggest asset, they invest in high-level continuing education.
The company culture is what helped High Prairie arrive on the high-end landscape scene with projects ranging from the face-lift of Hallbrook Farms, to design and construction of UMKC’s Diastole Scholar Center’s Dimond Dedication Patio, to the homes of professional athletes and other quality minded clients. In addition to their portfolio, Schmitz has spoken to and consulted with the following communities: Hallbrook Farms, Lloch Lloyd, and Cedar Creek. Schmitz has been recognized as an educator amongst her peers speaking at industry events and at Kansas State University. In the fall of 2016, K-State has chosen Schmitz to produce a series of webinars about increasing industry professionalism.
“Our exceptional reputation and performance can all be attributed to our team. I have surrounded myself with specialists that are more talented than myself in each of our service areas and facilitated their continued improvement. Our people are our “secret sauce”, Schmitz said of High Prairie.
High Prairie Landscape Group offers a full list of services to a select few clients. This includes cutting edge design complete with 3D movies of the project, installation of hard elements and plantings by certified professionals, irrigation installation and repairs, detailed landscape maintenance, and some of the best seasonal color displays in the city.
Their process begins with an in-depth consultation that includes a “getting to know you” interview, site grading analysis, and soil testing. Upon the completion of the consultation, clients will be able to choose how to proceed. The goal is to truly get to know clients and then educate them about possible options.
In a field of numerous competitors, High Prairie Landscape Group continues to push the limits on industry capabilities and professionalism. High Prairie Landscape Group is now considered one of the best Kansas City patio contractors. As long as there is room to improve, the company will continue innovating and investing in great people. Landscape clients deserve peace of mind. High Prairie Landscape Group exists to form lasting relationships that don’t stop upon installation of a project. That’s why it’s important that maintenance is provided so that client investments are protected for years to come.
