When it comes to landscape architecture Erin says:
“I always wanted a job that would allow me to leave something behind and perhaps make the world a better place. I feel that even when I design someone’s garden, in the smallest of ways, I am making that person’s world better. And that is my greatest joy”.
We’re delighted to have Erin here with us at LAN, her mixture of experience, excellence and a desire to keep learning are all sure to pack her articles with a keen sense of detail and cutting edge insights.
