Leyland Blue, in its current form, began as a concept in the summer of 2019 and became a reality when the business was officially filed and formed in December of that same year. Its true origins began as a dream much earlier than that, however.
The company's name "Leyland Blue" was derived from the company's earliest inspiration: Kaylan's father. Jerry Kirby was a successful small business owner for Kaylan's entire life and up until his passing in May of 2014. His latest business, founded in 2001, was Ikthus Tree Farm located in Palmetto, Georgia. It is now owned and operated by his son, Kyle. Since its inception, the farm has specialized in the cultivating and selling of a landscaping tree called the Leyland Cypress. Kaylan chose this tree as a part of her business name and logo in order to honor her beloved late father who instilled integrity, work ethic, and the motivation/drive in her that a small business owner has to have to be successful.
Kaylan is making her dad proud with her dedication, determination, and hard work. She added the business knowledge she needed by attending Kennesaw State University. She is pairing this with her passion for interior design. She has worked for a number of years as a large scale event planner and decorator to refine these skills and has been continuously complimented and awarded for her eye for design. Needless to say, Kaylan loves what she does and loves following this dream of hers. So please shop around our site and let us help you create your dream space.
"This business is my dream, it’s my dad’s legacy, and I hope it can become a small part of your home as well."
