Plant Life Designs was created in 2006 to help people discover the full potential of their living space through the use of landscape design.  We believe your yard is an extension of your home, which is why our landscape designs are produced to fit your personal style and interest.  Each design uses a combination of plants that offer visual interest, texture, bloom, color and structure throughout the year, along with hardscape features (paths, patios, walls, lighting) and artistic garden accents.  Our designs focus intensely on the function and aesthetics you desire for your space.

•Tara Dudley, Owner and Creator of Plant Life Designs, spent summers growing up in rural northeast Iowa raising Christmas trees and vegetables in the garden.  Her passion was discovered and recognized at a young age, so pursuing a degree in horticulture only seemed natural.  Tara received her Associate Applied Science degree in Commercial Horticulture from Des Moines Area Community College, with specialist certificates in Greenhouse Production and Landscape Design.  Tara is our lead designer and oversees all our our projects start to finish.
