Mara Redding

Mara Redding, Assistant Designer

Growing up in Milwaukee, WI, Mara’s parents taught her to value and draw inspiration from the natural environment around her.


This nurtured her passions for gardening, drawing and the outdoors, which in turn led her to the field of Landscape Architecture many years later. At UW Madison as an undergraduate student, Mara worked as a garden intern for a year at the Allen Centennial Garden, which helped develop her experience with and passion for working with plants and garden design. She also worked for the UW Madison department of campus planning and landscape architecture for over a year, where she gained valuable field work and planning experience. Both of these jobs have helped prepare her for the challenging and exciting variety of work and projects that she has been involved with so far at Vandewalle & Associates.
