Brook Klausing has been in the landscape biz more than half his life. He cut his first lawn at age 8 in his hometown of Lexington, Kentucky, and with his brother incorporated Klausing Brothers Lawn Care at 15.
From this humble entrepreneurial start, Klausing has become one of New York City’s most sought-after landscape artists, designing outdoor spaces for the likes of J.Crew’s Jenna Lyons and Ford Models.
He utilizes an array of materials—think wood, stone, metal and greenery—to create outdoor living rooms that deliver, in his words, “a feeling.”
Klausing is inspired by everything around him, adding that, “in just walking to the subway I am inspired by a material, a tree, an interaction.”
His ultimate goal is to “create a connection between people and the planet they live in."
