About Kristian Theim
Born in Kentucky, Kristian made her way to Charleston in pursuit of higher education from Johnson & Wales University and to explore her (second) passion for cooking.
While in culinary school, Kristian launched Good Dog Bakery, renowned for all-natural biscuits, treats and bites made with love for all the furbabies. She also had a booth at the Charleston Farmers Market where she met her now husband.
After the two tied the knot and found their nest in 2010, Kristian was inspired by its blank slate of a yard – rekindling an old flame for landscape design. Deciding to entertain this long-lost love, she enrolled in Trident Technical College and earned her Landscape Design certification.
Tidal Creek Designs was founded in 2011, but it stayed mostly on the periphery until she decided to close the Good Dog Bakery chapter and turn the page, focusing fully on Tidal Creek Designs in 2014.
As a designer, Kristian is inspired by flow and function along with what will flourish for years to come – often seeing the end result in her mind before pen is ever put to paper on plans. Staying true to sustainability and creating striking moments throughout the seasons, her goal for each client is to help them create their view and plant their joy.
