Growing up in scenic northern Michigan, Amy took her love for the outdoors with her as she went to college to study environmental engineering, but upon taking her first botany course, she was hooked on plants and followed her intuition in changing majors, graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Horticulture from Michigan State University in 1997. She began her career working in nurseries until a great opportunity to work as a design assistant in a landscape design/build firm arose in 1998. That move sparked her design career and has followed her all over the country, from Michigan to Texas and now to Western North Carolina. Amy’s favorite part of landscape design is creating inviting gardens for clients through the balanced use of plants and she has a particular passion for perennials. Her vast experience also extends to interior design as she believes gardens are an extension that flows from the interior, and vice-versa. In her free time, you can often find Amy practicing yoga and working out, gardening, or traveling with her husband and two teenage sons.
