A company with history

Humble beginnings as a small company, Lawn Champs maintained lawns through mowing, mulching, fertilizing. Built a strong customer base with fierce loyalty and creative vision!

Another small company began called KF Landscapes that mowed lawns for friends and neighbors & started a portfolio of projects that included retaining walls and seat walls.

Outdoor landscapes began to transform into retreats and oases so we brought in an award winning landscape design team to meet the trends and expand our creativity. Our 3-D design leads to a gorgeous build!

Elevate Outdoor came to life as Lawn Champs & KF Landscapes combined to be a landscape company that designs, builds, & maintains commercial and residential properties. 

Elevate Outdoor goes national with the opening of our second branch in the Tri-Lakes Area, New York. Further growth is coming soon through franchising!

Meet the Founder and CEO


Kohl Fitzmaurice

Chief Executive Officer

Family is at the heart of our workmanship. Since the age of 16, I have had a drive and purpose to serve friends and family. With a tractor, a goal of creating pristine, green landscapes, and a deep desire to help out the busy homeowner, I started a landscape business that promised hard work, integrity, and beauty.

I have had the privilege of growing this business from scratch, and while the trends constantly change, our mission does not! We strive to elevate the quality of life for our customers, and because of that investment, it has enhanced the growth of my character along with the character of our Elevate Outdoor team.

We want to make your time with family count! Let us help elevate your outdoor landscape so you can create lasting memories!


Paul Villhard

Chief Operating Officer

“I enjoy the process of transforming a landscape. Getting a front row seat to the hard work and skill of our team is an honor. While the completed projects are incredible, I get to see all the details of the hands that helped create it.”


Anne Graman

Chief Financial Officer

“The relationships we build each day are so exciting! We truly have the best customers. From project beginnings to final completion, I love being able to help make the process easy for our customers!”


Tony Meyer

Chief Sales & Marketing Officer

“When a customer entrusts us with their ‘castle’, it is the highest honor! We know the value and care that goes into being a homeowner, so from the moment a customer begins the design process through project completion and beyond, we choose to serve them with great pride and passion.”
