I offer a wide range of services from consultations to small-scale installation to complete landscape designs and everything in between.  Whether you have clear ideas about what you would like to see in your space or you only know that you want...something, I will design a creative solution that is equal parts beautiful, functional, and maintainable.   

Tara's Garden Design is dedicated to the art of landscaping.  I focus on fulfilling the need for function and beauty in an outdoor space with an eye toward low-maintenance, environmentally responsible plant choices. 

Tara Mairs, CBLP-D

Landscape Designer

I have always loved plants.  Although, my professional life originally led me to a career as a writer and editor, I continued to harbor a desire to work in the dirt.

I bring years of experience, study, and passion to my work as a landscape designer.  I am a Level 2 Chesapeake Bay Landscape Professional, a Master Watershed Steward, and I have a Landscape Architecture and Design Certificate.
