Stefano Marinaz Landscape Architecture
Landscape architect Stefano Marinaz has carved out a career from his life-long love for plants, having grown up in a family of horticulturalists in Northern Italy. After completing degrees in both Agronomy and Landscape Architecture in his native Italy, as well as an MA in Landscape Architecture at the University of Greenwich, Marinaz worked at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew and Arne Maynard’s studio, with private clients that took him across the globe. In 2012 Marinaz established his own practice, undertaking commissions that range from large-scale, hard landscaping projects on country estates to smaller, urban plots. His work extends well beyond the usual plant schemes to include furniture, lighting, sculpture and fencing, as well as a thorough follow-up maintenance programme with the help of two Kew-trained gardeners that he employs.
