Q How long have you owned/worked with the company?

A I began working in landscape design in 2004 during my graduate career at Clemson University and began Byrd Landscape Design in 2006.

Q What made you get into this industry?

A I have always enjoyed art and spending time outdoors. My mom worked for a landscape architect in Birmingham, Alabama and I was always amazed at her talent and ability to create a design vision on paper, then watch it come to life in the landscape. As a horticulture major at Clemson University, I focused my studies in landscape design, and was inspired to pursue that as a career with the encouragement and knowledge shared by my mentor and professor Mary Haque. Each project, client, and site are unique, and I enjoy the creative process and connecting with clients to provide outdoor spaces for clients that they will enjoy with their family and friends for years to come.
