Heather Lappe’s career in the green industry began in 2012 as a florist. It was there that her love of plants, flowers and building client relationships grew into a desire to pursue design on a much larger scale. She pursued a horticulture degree with an emphasis on landscape design at Iowa State University and graduated in 2016.
She joined Wright Outdoor Solutions in 2016 as an Associate Landscape Designer, assisting the design department with site measurements, estimating, install preparations and design creation. An avid student by nature, Heather loves to discover and study new plants, especially those that can be used for culinary and medicinal purposes. She also enjoys old-fashioned purple flowers, especially false indigo. The hardy plant adapts to many different environments, blooms profusely in the spring and summer and develops unique bean pods that darken into the fall for continued interest.
Away from work, if the sun is shining, Heather is likely outdoors, often curled up with a good book in her hammock. She loves to swim and spend time with family and friends. A throwback to her floral roots as well, Heather likes to tour cutting gardens when given the chance.
