DARLA ALDRED

Landscape Architect, Principal

As a Firm Principal, Darla manages all landscape architectural aspects of design projects. Landscape architecture forms the bridge between so many elements of the built environment; by integrating this discipline into each project, Darla ensures people can intuitively experience and enjoy their physical surroundings. When asked about her passion regarding her profession, Darla says, “The magic of landscape architecture for me is the balance between people and the natural environment; improving this in even the most subtle of ways is very rewarding.”

Darla enjoys helping her community understand the importance of preserving and planting trees, and she serves on the City of LaPorte’s Tree Commission. She is also a Kiwanian, a member of the La Porte County Master Gardeners, and enjoys volunteering with Meals on Wheels. Darla lives on a country acreage with her husband and two teenage boys, along with dogs, a cat, and chickens. She loves passing along to her boys the satisfaction of discovering the wonders of the natural world, whether through gardening, camping, or simply “being” outdoors.
