In 2017, Deb Hammer joined the Wright Outdoor Solutions team as the Garden Center Supervisor. With a background in design and textiles, outdoor living areas are a chance for her to play with color, texture and composition. She loves to be creative in the garden and change out containers with seasonal displays, especially during the winter season.
Plants evoke a certain memory and nostalgia for Deb. She has a fondness for varying types of grasses because of the way they move and sway in the breeze, reminding her of the prairie grass in South Dakota. Wisteria and hydrangea bring back fond memories of her trips to Nantucket. She also loves to bring cuttings indoors and dry them out for arrangements to enjoy inside. Deb enjoys the sense of preservation of time and place that dried flowers provide.
In her role as the Garden Center Supervisor, Deb loves connecting with people. She often finds that each customer at the Garden Center has a story, an experience or a feeling they wish to create around their home with the plantings they purchase. Deb loves the opportunity to help customers in that process, selecting the right plants for their landscape, creating artistic designs and displays, and creating a memorable shopping experience along the way.
