Based in North Georgia, The Fockele Garden Company has a solid reputation across the Southeast for creating, building and maintaining distinctive gardens and landscapes with a strong emphasis on sustainability.We are the company you keep. From the time we first meet with you until the time your garden takes physical shape, grows and matures, we are your partner in bringing the vision to life.
We design with creativity: nature inspired waterfalls, streams, and ponds; imaginative fountains; extraordinarily beautiful gardens; specialty plantings for specific situations–woodlands, hillsides, native gardens, wetlands, lawn replacement, perennials—all together, we use over 500 different species and varieties of plants in our designs; custom fences and bridges; interesting walls, patios, walkways, and paths; if we can think it, we can make it happen.
We install with technical skill: on site storm water management; appropriate plant selection and soil preparation; smart irrigation, LEED certified initiatives and careful selection and installation of nature-inspired, site-specific features.
We maintain with expert care: guided by the vision of the initial design and installation, our landscape management experts attend to your garden to nurture it from initial construction to full maturity. We also can bring new life to established landscapes that need more attention and care.
The Fockele Garden Company is deeply rooted in the landscape industry. Our team has over 200 years of knowledge and experience, allowing us to deliver increasingly complicated, demanding and creative results in a wide range of landscape disciplines.
Most importantly to you, we take great pleasure in creating sophisticated, engaging outdoor environments that are specific to your goals and bring you a sense of peace and joy. And what could be more fulfilling than that?
I can’t wait until spring when things start greening up! Should be just in time for little Andrew to start walking around. We’ve received so many compliments on the yard already from both friends and random strangers (I’m finding it funny how many strangers are taking the liberty to tell us how ‘ugly’ our yard used to be…as if I didn’t know!)
When we drove me up the drive, I got a little teary-eyed. It looks so wonderful. It’s better than I ever could have imagined. Gainesville GA
Wow!! It looks beautiful!! Mom says she can’t wait to leave the house so she can come back and see it all over again! You guys did a great job of straightening things up too! The entry point looks wonderful. I think the hill behind the patio is my favorite- love the ferns!! Gainesville GA
I’ve gotten none of my work done today for being to compelled to pass by a window or a door, and look out at my landscaping. it’s beautiful, mark. your guys did a great job in installing and clean-up. My new hobby is going to be watching everything but the grass grow!
Everything looks great in the yard. The regular maintenance really makes a difference! Atlanta GA
I have meant to send you an email since Sunday when Robin and I had an in-town hike!!
I wanted to show him amongst other things Anne’s Garden and so we made our very convoluted way in that direction and came across the Peace Garden. It is lovely. A wonderful oasis with those high berms and fascinating water features. We loved the way the path wound, with little very private sitting areas, so that in spite of being right by the building, the car park and lots of people, you could still find peace and quiet. Well done Fockele Garden Company!!!

We wanted to let you know how happy we are to be working with your designer, Joy. She certainly listened and achieved our vision of what we wanted, and we cannot be more pleased with the results. Cresswind at Lake Lanier
I’m really happy with the backyard. The crew was great and the design was perfect. Neighbors are already visiting to check it out. Thanks again to all of you. I’ll stick a note of satisfaction in the last bill!
Fockele staff really gave me all the attention today. You and your crew really do a great job of satisfying this customer. I’m so glad you were available to assist today – great teamwork. And Tony and his winter staff (the winter maintenance staff) are super – but sorry that you left before the chocolate chip cookies came out …. next time. Thanks again for making everything right.
My husband and I just want to say what a great job you are doing! We really appreciate your service- and our over 10-year relationship with you keeps getting better. Recently your crew did a wonderful job pruning some important areas. Flowery Branch GA
It has been a real pleasure getting to know you! Our garden area looks amazing and it has been a great experience working with all of you! That is the way business should be handled! I remember when we lived in Gainesville and I would see your creations and hear others talk about you and hoped one day I, too, could experience working with you. Thank you! I hope this is just the beginning! Cornelia, GA
I know it’s hard to find good help these days and you must be very proud of the team here…I know we are. It’s the little details the team gets that mean so much. The guys are always respectful to the residents and work so very hard. Thank you for your hard work and dedication to the community. Lanier Village Estates
Christmas in July today. Erik Staiger and his team did a fantastic job on my incline slope in the back yard today. Extraordinary team working steadily as the heat rose to over 90. So proud of how it looks. Gainesville GA
I can’t say enough wonderful things about the job that Fockele Garden Company did with our yard. They developed a plan to meet our goals and implemented it with care. The result exceeded our expectations. Our yard was a rectangular piece of grass with no focus and nothing to attract you to the yard. Our goals were to soften the view with colorful plants and to attract birds and butterflies. The fountain especially appeals to wildlife, attracted by the sound and sparkle that it creates. Not only do we enjoy hearing the babbling brook from the inside, but I find myself drawn to sitting outside and watching the birds and butterflies and listening to the flowing water. It is very calming. Thanks to FGC for creating a wonderful retreat for us and a haven for wildlife. Cresswind at Lake Lanier
Our garden is doing great – so beautiful! We even had dogwood blossoms on the trees this year and the Japanese maple is gorgeous! Cresswind at Lake Lanier
I want to thank you for all you personally and your company does for us. You have a great staff who provide awesome customer service. I know it starts at the top. We truly appreciate each and every one of you.
I hope you have a chance to pull in the driveway tomorrow to see how great the foundation landscaping looks. Your fantastic crew really got into the cleanup in order to show off the great work they did. We look forward to seeing it in the morning light! Thanks to everyone!
The fountain is looking good! We were on site today. You guys do fantastic work. Definitely a project to be proud of. I can’t wait to bring L.W. to the site to look at it.
Thanks again for such a wonderful job. I love that spot. It is just peaceful to me and I am working hard at creating those peaceful places in my life. Also, just want to tell you how professional, talented, and hard working all of your guys who worked here were….and they cleaned up every day and never left a mess. They are some of those rare folks who take care of the details of a job site and that is huge in my book…. a great reflection on your company and the training you all do. They were just so pleasant to work with. Thanks again.
While enjoying the climbing yellow rose that encloses the patio at the café, it occurred to me that I and all other Gainesvillians owe you a debt of gratitude for all the ways you and your friends have made this town a more pleasant and beautiful place to live. Gainesville GA
Thank you for your professionalism and excellent workmanship. Gainesville GA
The back yard looks beautiful. I love all of it. The pots are amazing!

Thank you for transforming our property this year! Atlanta

You are a magician! Five weeks ago we had a hum-drum back yard with a flooding problem. Thanks to the Fockele Garden Company we now have a small paradise right here in Buckhead.
Mark, you and your guys have done an incredible job. We were both absolutely blow out when we got home this afternoon. I’m just now sending this message because we’ve been out wandering around in the yard ever since we got home.
Your main man Sergio and his crew completed everything to perfection today – I mean everything: sod installed, sprinkler system patched, fence AND wall repaired, moss on the rocks, 2nd bridge installed, mulch on the paths, pine straw on the left side of the house, gifts for the neighbors… unbelievable. I don’t know how they covered that much ground in just one day.
I hope your trip is going well. Please let us know when you are back – you need to see the final product. We’ll send you some pictures this weekend – come by any time.
And, thanks – it really is unbelievable.
Next time you talk with your brother Mark, please tell him how very VERY much the residents (and families) of those living at LVE appreciate the exquisite beauty of the grounds and the landscaping. It is simply stunning. Daddy says it “is like living in a botanical garden! Mother and Daddy have sat at the window of the parlor outside of Mother’s room thrilling in the garden just below and all the wildlife, gorgeous flowers, etc. every afternoon for about 30 minutes. What a gift. I want Mark and those who work for him to know how much that time “tending the garden” of LVE means to those who live and love there
I searched the internet and called several companies. I told them I had fencing to replace, stormwater problems to solve, and a retaining wall to build. No one even came to look! When a friend pointed me towards Fockele Garden Company, I found someone that could do it all! Now I have dry, fenced areas for my Aussies and well drained areas for my plants. On top of that, we’re going to add some landscape lighting! The crew was wonderful to have around. Commerce GA

We asked the Fockele Garden Company for a landscape design that would build on the planting that we had already done- and be drought tolerant, deer resistant, and low maintenance. They came up with a plan that met all those criteria and the installation team expertly executed the plan. The Fockele maintenance service can be relied upon to do what needs to be done to keep things looking well-tended so when we go out in the yard we can just relax and enjoy ourselves. Cresswind at Lake Lanier
I’m so excited about the landscaping done yesterday! It was freezing and I’m amazed at how those guys worked in that early morning chill! They did a beautiful job. Now all we need is a little rain! NOT SNOW! I can’t wait for spring now…to watch those plants warm up and settle in. Thanks for all you have done; we are pleased with the job and with the good men who did the work. Lanier Village Estates
Richard and Lona
You embraced our thoughts and ideas with such enthusiasm. From the sculpture to the water feature and all the beautiful plantings- your special touch will be felt. Thank you for the opportunity to work with you on this great project. Gainesville, GA
In making my new back yard, all of my concerns and wishes were addressed. My desire to go native couldn’t have please me more. The plant selections look even better now that everything is settled in and growing. Best of all, our problem with a muddy area is resolved with the dry creek bed. I LOVE the look! Thanks again for the professionalism and hard work. The result is fabulous. Village at Deaton Creek

The client said that our crew is the best crew he has ever had working for him (builders, contractors, etc.) He says they take initiative and seem to take a particular interest in what they are doing, paying attention to detail.
We are enjoying our new yard so much! We can’t wait to watch it grow and develop.
Our neighborhood has an intranet site called NextDoor that allows for residents to post recommendations. I have done that for Fockele Garden Co. Hopefully, you will get some interest from it.
Jeff and I can’t thank you enough for the wonderful landscape renovation of our front yard. We have gotten so many compliments. Neighbors appreciate that you can really see the house and give high praise to the new island garden. I can’t decide what I like best, but it would probably be the new Japanese maple and boxwoods. Our entrance is much more inviting. It really looks good at night too. I hope you will install the bulb garden along the sidewalk this fall.
The whole team worked hard in the unusual fall heat. They did an amazing clean up job as well.
Thanks again. We could not be happier with the result. Dawsonville GA
Hope you are doing well. Just wanted to share a photo of our / your back yard. It is looking SO fabulous this spring. Sitting on our patio and admiring your work is one of the best parts of our day. Thanks again! Cresswind at Lake Lanier
The team did a fabulous job! I have never experienced such attention to detail from a maintenance crew. Thank you so much for coming to my rescue! Atlanta GA
I was going to write you to tell you how PLEASED I am with what you have done. When the plants take root and begin to grow, I really look forward to it! Thanks for your vision and for bringing everything together. The flow if the whole thing is just so cool!! VERY PLEASED! Cornelia GA
Your men were wonderful and did a superb job in all the work they did. Thank you, too, for the plan you created for us and working with us in keeping to the homeowners’ association’s regulations and within budget! Cresswind at Lake Lanier
I want to express how grateful I am for the work you did on my grandmother’s garden. The garden turned out better than our family could have imagined. The garden full of beautiful plants and flowers will allow people at the hospital a moment of peace. Thanks again for all your work. Gainesville GA
I just want to say a big thank you for the absolutely stunning landscaping at Magnolia Trace. I’ve been selling prospects carriage homes while butterflies dance around us (I’m not kidding) …it looks like paradise. A lot of our recent prospects are gardeners themselves so the beauty of the outdoors is hugely important to them. It also makes working here a complete joy. When our prospects are considering leaving homes that they have tended and nurtured for years, beauty matters. It softens the feeling that they are “losing something” as they transition to a different lifestyle. Thanks so much! I am loving working at Magnolia Trace!
