John Magee has been designing and building landscapes in the Washington DC Metro area and beyond for the past 25 years. After receiving his degree in Horticulture from the Ohio State University and spending a few years training and showing horses, he settled into the industry as the General Foreman of Pennsylvania’s highest award-winning landscape firm. While in Pennsylvania, he became a volunteer at Hawk Mountain Sanctuary and not only did he meet his wife there, but he was introduced to habitat gardening and the use of native plants in the landscape.
John now operates his own award-winning design firm (Magee Design) in the beautiful countryside of Middleburg, Virginia – where he also enjoys kayaking and taking long walks with his wife and two dogs. He specializes in the use of native plants, but is also known for his work with stone and water. These ‘earthy’ elements combine to create a natural landscape that enhances not only the home of the client, but the surrounding area as well.
He created and hosts the “Native Plant Podcast” and hosts and produces the “Protecting what Matters” podcast in partnership with the Department of the Interior’s “National Invasive Species Council” Secretariat. John also serves on the Board of the Piedmont Environmental Council, where he is the Habitat Chair
