Heidi Hornung

Landscape Architect and Retail Manager

Shady Lane Garden Center

Born into the business, Heidi Hornung’s enthusiasm for gardening dates back to her early years. “I couldn’t wait to begin working at the greenhouse,” she says. “I think I started when I was just 10 or 11 years old.” Of course, her father, Karl, was a big influence on her career choice, but her grandmother’s garden in Germany was another inspiration. “She had a corner lot,” remembers Heidi, “and Frau Hornung’s garden was well-known in the area.” Heidi received her bachelor’s degree in landscape architecture from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and is licensed as a landscape architect in Wisconsin.
