About Tyler Banken

Through the exposure to the artistry of plants at a young age through his uncle’s flower shop, grandparents’ dedicated gardening habits, and many nature hiking trips, Tyler has witnessed the power of plants and our natural environment. “Plants are there in happy times – weddings, in sad times – funerals, celebrations – holidays, and they define our unique outdoor spaces – landscapes” says Tyler. 
Originally from Cape Girardeau, Missouri, Tyler comes from a hardworking, middle America, “good ol’ boy” background. At age 11, Tyler started his own lawn mowing business in his neighborhood, pushing the mower up and down the street to neighbor’s houses, and eventually went on to college at the University of Missouri and then on to graduate school at Texas Tech University where he attained his Masters Degree in Landscape Architecture. Tyler’s design work can be found in many different forms – from landscapes to plantscapes, and in many different places – from Texas, Missouri, and Kansas, to Australia, New Zealand, and California.
