Appreciating and understanding the natural world helps Erica define her landscape designs with touches of warmth and beauty. A constant gardener, Erica’s bond with nature helps her deliver inspired designs. She understands that a welcoming space is expressed by finding the right combination of natural and man-made elements. When working abroad, for inspiration she explores cultures and materials found in host countries.
