How to counter Darius as Garen
Cloth and 5 pots. @ Lv3 9 armor runes + Enchanted Armor = 65.83 Armor (w/ W passive v E Passive). Don't push lane, keep it closer to your turret. Spin when he's too close. If he pulls then Q and backup and he'll be Jung Food (no escapes). Build Health.
One of the biggest advantages of playing Garen is that he has no mana. Invest in your W early, & use it when Darius pulls. W/ this strategy you can minimize damage, & exhaust his mana supply. Once he is out of mana, wait for him to pull & set
If you're lucky, you can silence Darius after he has pulled. His damage output is a bit higher but ask for ganks and you should be fine.

How to counter Garen as Darius
As Darius, you can either start Doran's Blade or Cloth 5. Your damage output is higher than his when his W is on cooldown. You counter his passive with your passive and R, and the passive E armor pen goes through some of his free stat boosts.
Despite the upper hand in damage, it is important to ward and be wary of the jungler. Garen will most likey ask for ganks due to your hard damage and, only then, will he be able to go toe-to-toe with you.

Garen has an advantage imo

As Garen, take grasp of the undying, max your Q and try to poke him with your Q every time after he uses his Q.
Darius is actually pretty weak when his Q is on cd, so after he uses it you have a small window to make a good trade with him. If you're standing too close to him to dodge his Q, then run at him with your Q so that you won't get a stack of his passive. If you stand outside the Q range, run at him with your Q after he used his Q.

On lvl1, try to poke Darius with your Q every time he gets close enough, and make sure you have grasp ready.

As Garen, I suggest taking W on lvl2, since you don't want to chase Darius too much with your E. The cd of your W might be a little bit long, but don't hesitate to use it and use it every time when you can't dodge Darius' Q.
