Robin Ginac

In the past decade, Robin Ginac has been able to apply her unique skills and knowledge to facilitate the evolution of comprehensive design strategies for residential, public, and commercial projects. She holds a BA from Hampshire College and received her Masters in Landscape Architecture from Harvard University Graduate School of Design.

Ranging from intimate designs for private homes to large scale commercial and public projects, Ms. Ginac has worked on a vast array of projects. She has designed landscapes nationally for the renowned architectural firm Robert A. M. Stern Architects, New York, NY, at the state level for the non-profit group Scenic Hudson and many owner operated design/build companies. Her work with the design firm CTPC included extensive landscape renovation for private residences throughout the New York metropolitan area, as well as commercial projects including an "Urban Meadow" for a privately owned plaza and a playground in Seward Park. More recently, she was a lead designer at Faddegon’s Inc., during which time they received the "Best of Landscape" award by the Times Union in Albany, New York.

Currently, Robin is the planting designer on The Pollinator Pathway in Seattle, WA. The Pollinator Pathway is a mile long by 12 foot wide corridor of pollinator friendly gardens built in planting strips along Columbia Street in Seattle. The concept behind this iconic project is to connect two isolated public green spaces (Seattle University’s campus and Nora’s Woods) with a corridor of native-pollinator-focused gardens. The project designs, funds, and builds following the criteria of the project. Twenty Pollinator Pathway gardens are now in place on Columbia. www.pollinatorpathway.com

Robin’s work has been commended by The Horticultural Research Foundation, The Tower Hill Botanical Garden, The Roothbert Organization and from The Garden Club Federation of Massachusetts, which awarded her the Margaret Patterson Design Award.
