Offering Expert Landscape Architecture for 20 Years


Our Mission:
At Landscape Design Associates, we believe that landscaping is an important part of the visual impression of every residence or and establishment - from the Palace of Versailles to your doctor's office. We believe it ought to be beautiful, thoughtful and well done. Always.

This applies to our landscape designs and our landscape installations, from Gainesville to Lake City.

Our Story:
Landscape Design Associates is owned and operated by Sabine Marcks, Registered Landscape Architect (RLA). Sabine's passion for gardening and landscape design goes back to her childhood in Germany. She learned the art of "outdoor rooms" and plant grouping at Weihenstphan University near Munich, Germany, the site of the premier plan evaluation garden in the country.

After receiving her Landscape Architect degree, Sabine decided to move to South Florida where she's been practicing landscape architecture since 1991. In 2004, she founded Landscape Design Associates, LLC and has been committed ever since to helping homeowners, business owners and land developers find the right balance between cost efficiency and beautiful results.

Why should you put your trust in Sabine? The simple answer is that she brings a drastically different perspective to landscape design-one inspired by international design and a passion for botany-that most Florida landscapers have never been exposed to. Count on her unique experience to create the landscape you've always dreamed of.
