Rocket Garden Landscape Design

About Erin Hutton

My journey to becoming a landscape designer has been a bit unconventional! A space and science enthusiast as a kid, I obtained a Bachelor of Science in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Arizona. That led to a 16-year career as a product validation engineer in the telecommunications industry in both Texas and Arizona. Soon after renovating my own Arizona backyard with the help of a talented designer, I found a new, intense passion for the desert's unique and versatile plant palette. I studied landscape design through the Desert Botanical Garden's design curriculum and completed The Desert Landscaper School certification program in 2008-2009. Since then my enthusiasm and know-how have taken flight! Now I enjoy running my own business, designing landscapes for private residences and Home Owner's Associations.
