Tara Armistead has a keen love of nature combined with an artist’s eye for detail. She serves on the Board of The Nature Conservancy and Nashville Civic Design Center. She has worked on the design and preservation of Nashville’s largest park, and was Vanderbilt University’s first Landscape Architect.
     When designing residential landscapes, Tara has a propensity for clean lines, geometric balance, and permeable edges that meld with the environment. She edits her designs, so the natural elements of water and light and air are appreciated. Her projects often span family generations, giving a quality of longevity and sustainability to her work. Her values are reflected in her home, where she has geothermal heating, a water cistern and an ever changing landscape of native plants.
