23 Oct Designer Spotlight: Erin Levesque
I’m Erin Levesque, owner, and maker of all things Rooted. Plants! As you can probably guess, I am a plant nerd. I like to know the names/nicknames of my plants, where and with whom they like to hang out and how often they drink. (I’ve got more in common with some, than others!). I pretty much live in an ever-evolving jungle of sorts, complete with built-in garden beds and noisy creatures.
I am the wife of a home builder/bison rancher and a homeschooling mom to currently 4 of my 7 kiddies. While photography has always been my main non-mom hobby, plants have sure grown on me over the last few years! 😉
The inspiration behind this little gig is roots. Unless you’re an airplant, everyone needs em! It’s a reminder to keep rooted in faith, family, our roles as parents, and everything else – in the right order. Heartstrings aside though, I’m here to help you add the right kind of beautiful plants in unique planters to your spaces, selected based on light and water requirements that will work in your day-to-day. Whether it’s the first living thing in your care, or you’re an avid green collector – plants are such a diverse crowd – there really is something for everyone that will thrive in nearly any situation. If we can get those things right, you and your plant are set up for success.
I use a variety of mediums to create planters and plant holders – hand-poured concrete, custom wood boxes, fabric/leather wrapped pots, leather hangers and wood and steel plant stands. I do a lot of custom work in and around Saskatoon, and have recently started offering plant rentals for weddings, events and as a clever alternative to traditional fundraising!
