Karri Files Paul is a former Apparel Design Director from NYC turned Landscape Designer with 20+ years design and leadership experience with her most recent post as a Design Director at Tommy Hilfiger. While living in Connecticut and commuting to work into New York City she was constantly seeking a place of refuge and cultivated her long love for gardening and creating beautiful outdoor spaces. Her extensive travels around the world from Asia, Europe and her own back yard of the Hudson Valley and New England have provided endless inspiration. A move back to her home state of North Carolina sparked the idea to shift design mediums from Apparel into Landscape. She is NYBG Gardening certified with continued adult education in Landscape Design. She has an ongoing passion for sustainability which she hopes to continue to apply in her work. The combination of her background and training from Parsons School of Design and NYBG allows her to offer a unique approach and perspective in her work. She has a strong understanding of building relationships, addressing customer needs and delivering lasting results.

Karri is a member of the Association of Professional Landscape Designers. When she is not working or traveling you can find her tending to her own perennial cottage style garden.


“Transformational! Karri took what seemed like a daunting, dark hole and turned it into an incredible backyard space for us. She helped us solve our draining problems for good, designed an incredible, functional and beautiful entertaining space, and even let our wildest dreams come true with the construction of a putting green. She is creative, attuned to detail, and committed to seeing through a vision. Highly recommend!”
