"Jill was very interested in our input and incorporated our ideas into the plan when we began 4 years ago. We especially liked the presentation of possible plantings (via photos) that were included, and the discussion of the pros and cons of each variety.  In addition, the plan is one that we can add to incrementally, so this ongoing relationship has continued as we develop the landscaping on our property. We have enjoyed working with Jill and have consulted her regularly since our original plan was drawn.  She is professional, accessible and fun to work with!" ~ MG

It was the love of plants and history that brought me to the field of landscape architecture. I received my Master’s in Landscape Architecture and in Historic Preservation from the University of Virginia, and have over 25 years of experience in the field.

For almost a decade, I worked as the senior landscape architect for the horticulturalist, Ian Robertson, at his firm, Ian Robertson Ltd.. During my employment there the most well know commissions the firm designed were most of the original gardens at the Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens in Richmond Virginia. These gardens included the Henry M. Flagler Perennial Garden, the Martha and Reed West Island Garden, the original Japanese Tea Garden, and the Lucy Payne Minor Memorial Garden.

In 2001, I started Jill Trischman-Marks, Landscape Architect, and at the same time, joined the staff of Rieley and Associates on a part-time basis to gain more experience in the field of historic preservation. My work with them has provided me the opportunity to work on historic properties such as Thomas Jefferson’s home Monticello and his rural retreat Poplar Forest, George Washington’s Mount Vernon, and James Madison’s home Montpelier. 

Jill Trischman-Marks, Landscape Architect provides landscape design and historic restoration services to residential, commercial, and institutional clients throughout Virginia and the east coast. JTM-LA specializes in swimming pool design and designing with low maintenance, edible, and/or native plants.
