Today we wrap up our 35th Anniversary series featuring long-term Landscape Workshop employees. Our fifth and final interview features Director of Floriculture Leah Quarles, who joined LW in 2004. Read on to hear what she had to say about her time at Landscape Workshop.
What is the most valuable lesson you have learned at LW?
Teamwork. We have a lot of combined experience and knowledge. It’s really neat to see what all we can accomplish when we work together with the resources available within the company.
Which customer or colleague has had the greatest impact on you?
There are a lot! One that really sticks out was always Mrs. Crenshaw. Early on in my career, she encouraged me to think outside the box and be creative. She was so much fun to work with as we planned her “garden” each season. She always encouraged me to try new plants and experiment in her garden.
What do you like best about your role at LW?
Being able to use my creative abilities. Every project is different, and I love that sometimes we can just really let the creativity flow.
What is the most notable change you have seen at LW over the years?
Growth. This company has grown tremendously in my time here. It’s been fun to be a part of it.
Have you held other positions at LW? What were they?
I have always worked in Floriculture at LW. Because of the growth within the company, my role has changed and evolved a lot through the years.
