Lara’s extensive background in landscape design and architecture started with residential landscape construction and maintenance. She moved on to horticultural maintenance at the Calgary Zoo and Botanical Garden, before interning at both the UBC Botanical Garden and Center for Plant Research and the Design Center for Sustainability. After getting a taste for landscape design and architecture, Lara went on to share her knowledge as Adjunct Faculty for UBC’s Master of Landscape Architecture Program.
Now, as a member of Prospect & Refuge’s landscape design team, Lara is thrilled to once again be collaborating with clients and colleagues on the job. She draws her inspiration from design context and user communities. In her downtime, Lara spends as much time with her family as possible.
