Landscape Charlie is owned and operated by Minnetonka native, Charlie Kraemer. He moved to Shorewood in 2018 and is now raising two sons and a daughter there with his wife, Colette.
Charlie started out in the industry in 1995 with a local family-owned tree service company, where he learned the craft and developed a passion for landscape design and creation.
In 2003, Charlie launched and ran a landscape division for that tree service and then, in 2009, broke out on his own to start Landscape Charlie Inc. (while still maintaining a positive relationship with the tree service).
Landscape Charlie employs a unique process of having the design creator on site working alongside the team to increase efficiency, design soundness and accuracy. Our installation teams are second to none. Each team and individual bring a valuable link to the process that we have continually refined for over 2 decades. Over the years we have possessed a BS from SCSU, building contractor license from the state of MN #BC684026, become a certified professional with the MNLA, ICPI, and NCMA. Charlie is also 1 of 12 founding members of Belgard’s Advisory Council, which is a group of landscape company business owners throughout the US chosen by Belgard to help make Belgard a better company. Charlie has lived in the area his entire life and greatly enjoys performing projects for his neighbors, friends and community members.
Our landscaping process is tailored to you – the customer – to ensure that your vision and ours are in sync and that you are completely comfortable with the process at all points. We can also create a 3D rendering which will provide you with an idea of what your landscaping project will look like when it is finished.
