Kelyn Holcomb

LANDSCAPE DESIGNER

Creates landscapes that make your home a destination, taking people just where you want them to go.

BACKGROUND: A native of Chesapeake, Kelyn studied horticulture at Virginia Tech. After graduation, she worked in the horticultural departments at both the Norfolk Botanical Garden and the Virginia Zoo. She also spent time gardening on the big island of Hawaii, maintaining organic gardens and identifying tropical plants. Kelyn gets her hands dirty, continues to learn every day and has never met a plant she doesn’t like.

WHEN I'M NOT WORKING, YOU CAN FIND ME: Walking along the bay, kayaking, sailing, camping, spending time with family, cooking plant-based meals, enjoying the local craft breweries and tending to my own garden.

GARDENING ADVICE: "Gardens are always evolving, so don’t be afraid to change things up once in a while or find a different way to highlight the beauty of an old favorite, no matter how big or small."

FAVORITE PLANTS: Echinacea, rudbeckia, Mexican sage, ornamental grasses, saucer magnolias and tulip poplars.
