Maggie Lobl, Principal
Maggie earned a degree in Art History and then spent 15 years in the apparel industry as a designer and merchandiser. Ultimately, she was able to transfer her design sense and abilities to landscape and site work. In her work she creates beautiful and functional environments for the benefit of those who use and visit them.
Maggie is a registered landscape architect licensed by the state of California. She is a graduate of the Landscape Architecture program at UCLA Extension where she was honored to receive the Joseph H. Linesch Scholarship in 2011. She is a Master Gardener, certified by the Los Angeles County extension office and UC Davis, as well as a licensed landscape contractor (C-27). She is a member of G3: Green Gardens Group and also a professional certified by the EPA's WaterSense labeled program.
Maggie served on the board of directors of the incredible Garden School Foundation for three years. Other volunteer projects have included advising on an “edible wall” garden installed at the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank and as an advisor to create a rooftop vegetable garden at Los Angeles Community Action Network (LACAN) on Skid Row as part of their Team Food program.
Maggie was born and raised in Southern California, which remains her home. She spent her youth swimming in the Pacific Ocean, waterskiing at Lake Arrowhead in the mountains, hiking trails heavy with the fragrance of sagebrush and driving the tangled maze of freeways that get you from one of those places to the other. While California will always be home, she loves to travel widely to seek out the sights and scenery, languages and sounds, flavors and scents of other places. She finds inspiration in meeting people with different and varied experiences and remembering that we all share this planet and the finite resources it provides its inhabitants.
