Hi! I’m Tara, the principal designer at Haute Nature.

I believe time with nature is paramount to our well-being. In all the places I’ve lived, I’ve always sussed out the wild spaces as a refuge from the daily grind.

A love for nature led me to study ecology, undertaking field studies in my happy place — the woods. But a desire to create and play with space eventually drew me from the world of research to that of design. I still remember the day I stumbled on a poster for landscape architecture thinking, oh my god, I was born for this!

A few cities and a lot of apartments later, I completed a Master in Landscape Architecture and have been working professionally for over ten years. With this experience, my eagerness to raise the value we place on aesthetics and nature in North America is stronger than ever.

There’s a wiser, more efficient, more environmental and far more beautiful way to develop our homes, streets, towns, cities and open spaces. Let me guide you.
