About Us

Our History

Outdoor Innovations Landscaping was formed in 2007 by owners Asher Judd and Craig Palmer.

Both Craig and Asher each owned separate landscape businesses and worked very well together. After teaming up on projects for 3 years, the decision was made to form one company together and continue to provide one-of-a-kind landscape projects for homeowners.

Asher and Craig both started their landscaping careers with a pickup truck and some shovels! Asher developed a successful company focusing on retaining walls. Meanwhile, Craig went to school at the University of Wisconsin – Madison and obtained a degree in landscape architecture. Craig started his company during the summers off from school.

In 2004, Craig and Asher met through a mutual friend and have worked together ever since.
