We are excited to share that Kathy Hubner, one of our landscape designers here at Gill Landscape Nursery, has become only the second Texan and first from Corpus Christi to be named a fellow of the Association of Professional Landscape Designers (APLD)! Kathy is one of only 83 APLD Fellows in the United States. She will receive her designation during the 2019 APLD Conference this summer in Seattle. 

As an APLD Fellow, Kathy has been recognized for her significant design contributions, as well as service to the profession of landscape design. She served eight years on the Board of Directors of the APLD from 2000-2007, has been Chair of the APLD Awards Committee since 2014 and has been Treasurer of the Texas Chapter of the APLD since 2012. “It is an honor to receive this designation from my peers in the APLD,” Kathy said. “I’ve dedicated my career to enhancing the professionalism and standards and continuously learning about landscaping technology, science, and practices that translate into quality products for our customers.”

Kathy is one of APLD’s most award-winning designers specializing in complete landscape planning for residential, commercial, and ranch country properties, including patios, pools, outdoor kitchens, water features, shade structures, and updates for existing landscapes. She also specializes in Xeriscape (low water 

 use) planning. Kathy is certified to prepare landscape ordinance plans for commercial projects. In her 30-year career at Gill’s, she has designed and installed landscaping projects throughout the Coastal Bend and South Texas in a wide variety of styles; from Mediterranean to Contemporary to Hill Country/Ranch style.
