Remodeling and Home Design


Elisa Meara has a native plant landscape design firm based in Falls Church, Virginia.    The goal of the firm is to help home owners who yearn for a beautiful garden that brings them closer to nature, in a kind and sustainable way. 

Elisa develops designs that match the specific needs of the client and the location, using plants that are native to the American Northeast.  

The company was established in March of 2013.  It was born in the hope of providing the community with a new and different landscape design option.  Beautiful gardens, that can be designed, developed and maintained in the most environmentally sound ways, using plants that support the local eco-system.

The purpose of the company is to create unique and personalized garden designs that can be developed into artful, beautiful gardens. These designs reflect influences from the modern and naturalistic garden designs of Europe.  Our designs use mostly native plants of the American Northeast.  

We are strong believers in environmentally sound gardening practices. We also believe that people benefit from being surrounded by nature and beautiful spaces. 


"I live in upper northwest Washington. Elisa turned my garden into a little paradise. She drew plans that represented what our new garden would look like.  Included were the names and pictures of each plant. The process was collaborative in that she included existing plants that were meaningful to me. Together we discussed the plan and my suggestions were considered. The process was fun and stress free. I highly recommend Elisa Meara as your garden designer.  I promise you will be thoroughly satisfied".  -Juanita Harris
