Laura Wehler brings more than 15 years of landscape architecture experience to the REA team. Her portfolio includes a range of projects types, including commercial, residential, mixed-use, educational, historic landscapes, and neighborhood development. She also has extensive experience managing projects from beginning to end – from development and schematic design to construction documentation and administration.
Her career has been heavily rooted in the horticultural industry, and her love of plants inspired her to pursue degrees in landscape architecture and horticulture at the University of Wisconsin – Madison. Laura believes plants are an integral part of design and uses them to bring color, texture, and movement into a space. Laura strives to create designs that are equally functional and beautiful. She is dedicated to sustainability, and is well-versed in the design and implementation of over-structure planting systems, water harvesting, water conservation, native restoration, shoreline stabilization, and the use of native plant palettes
