Our Featured Celebrity Speaker Mike Pyle, HGTV’s “Inside Out”

Mike has been in the landscape industry for more than 20 years, specializing in everything from design to construction to outdoor furnishings and firepits.


He now owns a landscape design firm in Orange County, California, managing a team of designers and projects around the country. This has allowed him to gather knowledge on a variety of climates and led to him creating a unique, drought-tolerant landscape aesthetic for his clients.


For the past two years, Mike has co-hosted HGTV’s ‘Inside Out’ where he works with clients on their home renovations, balancing their priorities, and budgets to create a stunning space.
