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.

We welcome you to fill out our Online Survey if you are interested in scheduling a consult with our designer. We are currently booking for the 2024 spring season!

What Our Clients are Saying


Tara did a great job walking us through the process of re-landscaping our backyard. She developed a plan and installed a great, enduring space! We are very happy with her and her crew’s work.

Shannon S.

Tara is great to work with. She listened to what we were hoping to achieve in the landscape design and really came through. Also, we can’t say enough about the workers who did the installation. They were meticulous.

Stephanie N.

Plant Life Designs offers the most unique experiences in Central Iowa.  From season focused plants sales, one of a kind dining experiences and customized full landscape designs and installs…this place cannot be beat!
