Discover a Company That Delivers

When choosing who to create a professional relationship with, it’s important that they’re a reputable organization. Legitimacy is created through actions, results, and consistency. There are too many contractor horror stories in the world and we’re here to eliminate them by providing a better experience.
High Prairie Awarding Kansas City
You benefit from working with an organization that delivers results instead of lip service. No other landscape or outdoor living company in the region has the same legitimacy proving pedigree we do. Why? Because we believe you deserve better than mediocre.


Awards are an easy way to decipher if a landscape company is legitimate. Just like being “Featured”, be wary of companies who claim to be “Award-Winning” with very few real awards.

We were honored in 2019 to become Kansas City’s first luxury residential outdoor living company to win not one, but two national awards against companies all over the nation in the luxury design/build category. For the first and only time in Kansas City’s history, a company earned top three projects in the nation.

Curious about what kind of awards allow us to claim to be “Award-Winning”?

Certifications & Education

Does the company you’re considering have credentials indicating they’re capable of delivering on your investment in outdoor living? Experience and education go hand in hand, but you cannot have one without the other. A lot of people have experience at doing things poorly. Some of them, for decades.

By combining education and experience, we believe you benefit from the best of both worlds.
