designing for Upstate South Carolina and North Florida
Donna graduated from the University of Florida in 2004 with a Bachelor’s degree in Landscape Architecture. She worked at Halback Design Group in St. Augustine and Basham and Lucas Design Group in Jacksonville as a landscape designer, with a focus on Residential and Large-Scale Neighborhood projects, including planting plans for Entryways, Amenity Centers, Model Homes, and Common Spaces.. She established LeBrun Designs, Inc. in 2007 upon the birth of her first child and focuses on residential and commercial properties. Donna and her family moved to Anderson, South Carolina in April 2012 and has established her design presence in the Upstate.
In 2009, Donna started Potted Gardens as a way to further connect with clients with entry gardens for their residential or commercial use. Her work with Potted Gardens varies greatly in scale from large containers to miniature gardens. It is a green alternative for floral gift-giving and has also evolved into a successful platform for hosting social and workshop events.
She LOVES plants and sharing her passion with adults and children. One of her biggest loves is getting children excited about plants. She has lead the Concord Elementary Garden Club since 2015 and was instrumental in the installation in the schools' ABC Garden in April 2015. She has also enjoyed being a guest speaker at several Upstate Garden Clubs, hosting discussions on new concepts in garden design and developing community interest in garden projects.
