Liggett Design Group is a landscape architecture firm in Raleigh, North Carolina that was founded in 2000 by Frank Liggett.  LDG has worked in a wide variety of project types, but our primary focus is on residential, estate, institutional and commercial work in North Carolina, Virginia and the Caribbean.  Frank has a Master's Degree in Landscape Architecture from the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, Rhode Island and worked on numerous projects throughout New England prior to starting his practice in his home state of North Carolina. He has taught design and technical classes at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Studies at Harvard University and served as a visiting critic at the Rhode Island School of Design and the Boston Architectural Center.


The quality of our work is directly related to the excellence of our staff and our commitment to communication with our clients.  At LDG, the following principles guide our work on every project:

  • we work to understand the site and the goals, schedule and budget of the client before beginning the design process

  • built elements and planted elements are equally important in a designed landscape, and the relationship betwen the two is critical in creating functional & aesthetically pleasing landscapes 

  • constructive communication with architects, engineers, contractors, builders & developers is an essential component of our projects

  • landscapes and buildings have a fundamental relationship that will be addressed in the design work

  • every designed landscape must have a sound drainage strategy
