  • Patrick Smith

    Patrick Smith

    Horticulturist, Gardener and Lighting Designer
    Patrick’s gardening style is compassionate, passionate, positive and artistic all in one!  In his youth Patrick found spiritual inspiration in the forests of Northern NJ where he learned about texture, color, cycles and designs orchestrated from nature itself. He went on to work for a large landscaping company before opening and successfully operating his own business. He found the perfect home of likeminded people when he arrived at M. Erbs and has been with us ever since. Patrick sees lighting as art—you too will agree when you see how he illuminates your property and makes your garden stand out from the rest. His lighting installations expose his curiosity to extend the beauty of the garden into night.

    Patrick is an outdoorsman and enjoys the peace and tranquility of his country cottage on the river’s edge when he’s not working.
