I design functional, inviting, personalized landscapes. Green spaces in which to de-stress, connect with nature, and enjoy time with family and friends. Are you looking for a space like this, but don't know where to begin? Wild Violets Landscape Design can help.
The idea for Wild Violets Landscape Design was born in 2009 along with our oldest child, whom we named Violet. To accommodate the priority shift that becoming a parent provided, I decided to leverage my degree in Horticulture from the University of Wisconsin - River Falls, plus my prior experiences as a landscape designer and in the wholesale landscape supply industry and, in 2014, took the rewarding leap into owning my own design business.
A lifelong learner, I maintain my expertise through continuing education as a Minnesota Nursery and Landscape Association (MNLA) Certified Nursery and Landscape Professional. I have also completed college courses in Educational Psychology and Early Childhood and Youth Development. Mixing kiddos with gardening is my dream job. I enjoy volunteering with Dakota County 4H and with local school gardens in my area.
My husband, Bernie, and I live near Hastings, MN, where we raise our awesome children, dogs, cats, chickens, and a growing number of other hobby farm projects and critters. Life is a grand adventure. ~Steph
