Shangri La Landscape Design: Erica Smith
Category(s): Design and Maintenance
Servicing: Multnomah, Washington, and Clackamas Counties
As a former land use planner, real state analyst, and community development professional Erica brings a “big picture” urban vision to the design table. This includes an appreciation for the complex relationships between often invisible systems (both natural and human-made) that make city life possible. In designing modern native and drought-tolerant gardens, Erica’s goal is to help clients realize their own personal “Shangri-La” in a manner that responds to the environmental, cultural and economic factors shaping our communities – ultimately, enhancing the quality of life for many, add a larger scale. Unique services include zoning code analysis and interpretation, greywater system design, project management, sustainable construction consulting, low-impact garden maintenance, and a fine sense of humor.
