Laura has worked in the landscape field for over 25 years. Incorporating solid design concepts with the best plant choices allows her to create garden spaces that provide outstanding function with beautiful visual appeal.
Her keen interest in plants has led her to research and design with many plants that are native to our region. These plants not only fit beautifully into the home landscape but also connect our landscapes to nature in useful and fascinating ways.
