As part of the planting design team at Hoerr Schaudt, Stephanie Robinson relies on her background in floral design and horticulture for her annual and container designs. She’s a roll-up-your sleeves kind of designer who feels fortunate to be involved with almost every aspect of her projects, from initial conversations with clients and putting the details on paper to seeing them through to the final product–all with a very hands-on approach. Hailing from Geneva, Illinois, Stephanie grew up gardening with her father and grandfather and developed a deep appreciation for plants and the environments they create for people. She received a bachelor’s degree in landscape architecture from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and then moved to Chicago. When she’s not in the office, Stephanie enjoys reading, trying new restaurants, and exploring the city for design inspiration.
