Colin Lord

Landscape Designer

Connecticut Accredited Nursery Professional 

Meet Colin! He graduated from UMass Amherst with a BA in Landscape Architecture in 2014 and also has a minor focused on plants, soils and insect science.  He’s been employed at Garden Barn since 2008. When he's not at his desk creating exquisite landscape designs for his clients, he can be found in the nursery assisting customers and creating stunning displays.  His favorite plant currently at Garden Barn is the Hinoki Cypress.  Colin believes that Garden Barn’s selection of plants and knowledgeable staff is what sets them above the rest.  He says that he and his fellow coworkers all “do a bit of everything” and are knowledgeable about any of your plant needs.  Outside of work, Colin enjoys kayaking, fishing, skiing and smoking meats on his new smoker, as well as landscaping.
