Deborah LeFrank


With 30 years of experience of combining art and nature, Deborah LeFrank is well recognized for what she calls "designs for humanity". Passionate about connecting people with nature, her work upholds the values of improving our community for now and future generations, minimizing the impact of development and enhancing the balance of natural systems.

Deborah's work is detailed in its approach and creates environments that are recognized for their ability to engage and inspire. Community, institutional or residential – if it is outdoors, Deborah and her team can design it.

LeFrank and Associates was born out of a desire to create outdoor spaces where people can connect with nature.

Our design approach over the past 30 years has always focussed on acute listening to client needs. These insights are then balanced with environmental sensitivity and high quality design.

The typical design and construction process looks something like these sketch notes.

The LeFrank and Associates team is led by Deborah LeFrank. Each project team is developed as required, connecting with expertise from a wide range of professions from green roof contractors, civil engineers, architects, structural engineers, sports field specialists, geotechnical engineers, permaculture designers, horticultural therapists, playground experts - people passionate about the outdoors.

The unique qualities of every site inspires and pushes the ecological creativity of this team.
