From her sun-filled studio in the Northrup King Building, Racquel Wakefield, founder of
Tonic Living and Plantscapes, designs green spaces for clients—from plant lovers looking to add life to their homes to some of the trendiest restaurants and hot spots in the city. Wakefield’s love of plants started at the age of 14, when she landed her first job at local garden center Cal’s Market. She spent 10 years there, and eventually, her passion led to a degree in environmental design from the University of Minnesota. Today, Wakefield believes plants heal, uplift, and improve the spaces we live and celebrate in every day. Her mission reminds us to honor and connect with our ecosystems—both those we plant and the great outdoors. The Tonic team is available for living and landscape design, garden coaching, and even container design. Follow Tonic online to learn more about services and upcoming classes.
