Tidal Creek creates landscapes for homes, communities and large-scale projects in and around Charleston, SC.


From neighborhood pools perfectly dotted with lounge furniture to backyards where families cook out and build memories, Tidal Creek Designs makes custom landscapes to fit each style. Founded by lifelong designer and long-time industry specialist Kristian Thiem, Tidal Creek perfectly marries professional with personal. Every project mines Kristian's skills to create the dreamscape of families, companies and communities that will call that landscape home.


We work with you from concept to final installation—from planning your dream until the day you sit down to enjoy your outdoor living space.

More than a simple project.


Tidal Creek's portfolio spans church lawns, quaint family homes and pool-scapes. Explore these designs for examples and inspiration of your own. 


Complete your outdoor living space.


To compliment her landscape designs, Kristian hand-selects furniture and design lines to partner with, offering clients pieces that won't be available in home design stores or the public marketplace. Working with each client, Kristian will carefully select each piece to create the perfect outdoor living space—because landscape and furniture should work together seamlessly.
