Lynn was a strong advocate for accessible open space in the public realm. Her designs reflect the diversity and cultural richness of their surroundings while also balancing the use of space with the diverse needs of communities in which they are located. Her thoughtful approach to landscape design focused on the importance of community, accessibility, and bringing people together. She understood that landscape architecture is not just about beautification, but it’s about forming a space, initiating a lifestyle, and creating a new public realm.


In addition, Lynn contributed her time and expertise to various regional, national, and international organizations such as the Women’s Lunch Place, a daytime refuge in Boston; a Teaching Hospital in Mirebelais, Haiti; and the Fletcher Allen Hospital in Vermont. Lynn’s impact on these organizations and the communities they serve is still evident, with the recent dedication of a new herb Garden in her memory at the Women’s Lunch Place.
