Marion Trau, Founder & Owner

Marion began his work in the construction industry in 1984 in Los Angeles. He founded Marion Landscape Construction in Marin County in 1990 and has deeply enjoyed bringing his clients’ outdoor visions to fruition since then.

Marion has a passion for improving his clients’ quality of life through their outdoor spaces. He strives for them to feel as if they are on vacation at home, enjoying quality time on their own or with loved ones in a beautiful and relaxing environment.

Marion is proud to have cultivated a highly-trained crew and robust network of local landscape architects, designers, engineers, and other professionals over the years. Together, this team brings a vast set of specialized skills to the table which are unique to find in one company.

Marion loves the outdoors himself, particularly mountain biking and hiking. He also enjoys practicing self-defense and listening to his favorite music. Marion lives in San Rafael, CA with his wife and has two grown children living in the Bay Area.
