A little about me…

Hi, my name is Chris Cabezas, PLA, and I’m so happy you are visiting this website. As a licensed Landscape Architect with over 10 years of combined professional, field and educational experience, I am very excited for the opportunity to design and create unique gardens here in my hometown of Delray Beach/Boca Raton and the tri-county area.

After beginning my career installing and maintaining landscapes as a laborer and crew leader here in South Florida, I decided to return to school to focus on design, receiving a Master’s in Landscape Architecture with honors from Florida International University. As a student, I was extremely active in the community and received several awards, including two design awards from the Florida Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects (FLASLA), as well as becoming a National University Olmsted Scholar. Next, I was priveldged enough to spend several years honing my craft at the prestigious Miami firm of Raymond Jungles Inc., where our projects ranged from high-end residential and large multi-family developments to the commercial and public realm. There, I learned and developed a very strong sense of design, practice and a focus on client relationships.

At the end of 2016, after returning from a 15-month world tour exploring the gardens, architecture and cultures of South America, Europe and Asia, I began teaching a landscape Master’s studio at Florida International University. At the same time, Chris Cabezas Landscape Architecture, Inc was launched and now open for business.

With my passion for tropical plants and native ecosystems, and my love of great design and craftmenship, I am excited to continue to create unique gardens and spaces using nature’s toolkit of plants and stone, water and soil, shade and sunlight. If you can imagine it, we can create it.

I look forward working together on your next landscape project!

-Chris

 

As a landscape architect, it is so important to know what it takes to get projects built, from the first sketch to the final stone laid. That’s why I often get my hands dirty and work with crews to make sure the job is done right.

My time as an adjunct professor at FIU was so rewarding and fun. Working with the talented students and collaborating with the professors at such a high level challenged me daily. I hope to return to teaching sometime in the future.
