Michael Tarrant

RLA
Director, Landscape Architecture

Mike has over 20 years of experience practicing landscape architecture at a variety of scales, from large-scale land planning and master plans to complex urban design projects, spanning across many states throughout the southeast. With a primary focus in North Carolina, he has been at the forefront of developing and implementing complex design documents in both the public and private development sectors. Mike is driven by a passion for creative problem solving and by the challenge of fusing the intricacies of landscape architecture to influence the built and natural environments, leveraging the creation of great and meaningful places to promote positive transformation throughout our communities. He is grateful for opportunities that allow him to share his expertise on a broader scale outside of the design community, including serving on the Durham Board of Adjustment and the Triangle Community Coalition Board of Directors, and he is dedicated to building valuable relationships, believing that a partnership built upon a strong foundation of trust and common goals ultimately becomes the catalyst for successfully effecting positive change.
