Sabine Marcks, Landscape Design Associates, winner of the 2015 Real Florida Landscapes Design Competition – for South Florida

Sabine Marcks, Landscape Design Associates, is once again a winner, this year with a South Florida residential design. Sabine favors designs that pack in a lot of plants and allow the fittest to survive and thrive over time. Her design this year presents an artificially created wetland transitioning via a raised berm to a pineland-inspired planting. A boardwalk and deck allow up-close viewing of plant communities and access for maintenance. The design includes several native palm trees to create a tropical look favored by many Florida residents. Native flowering ground covers provide nectar for pollinators and a natural hedge along the boundary provides wildlife value and privacy.

Sabine won the 2014 competition for North Florida. She got a project as a result and decided to enter again in 2015.
