The creative team of DebraYATES & BenjaminBURLe, a boutique design studio, specialize in full service landscape design and a high level of project management. YATES & BURLe bring a unique fresh style to exterior design and native coastal gardens. Internationally known for creating clean-lined stylish space, elegant outdoor rooms, sculptural pools and bold indigenous gardens, Benjamin and Debra meticulously blur the line between indoor and outdoor living. Their work is innovative yet timeless. Natural systems are incorporated and accentuated, enhancing balance and harmony. Refined water features and natural well-detailed hardscape elements entice participation. YATES & BURLe are passionate and pragmatic when it comes to their designs for sophisticated coastal gardens, incorporating a unique palette of mature native species.

In early 2016, DebraYATES & BenjaminBURLe happily consolidated their Mid-town Miami and Key West design studios into one historic Lake Worth cottage studio, a true Old Florida gem. Resort projects in Key West include the Truman Hotel which Yates designed from concept and room design, to the craning in of 17 crooked Sabal Palms, and the fabrication of custom banquette pool lounges. Soothing lounge music surrounds the pool. From La Jolla to Lake Worth, Miami to Key West, they have clients who find joy in a well-designed environment created especially for them.
