“Word of mouth has carried my business for nearly twenty years, over which I have learned that there is absolutely no better recommendation than the praise and gratitude of a satisfied client.”

Our experience with Mierop Design couldn’t have been better – from design suggestions to breakneck pace to always beating rather than missing deadlines… all the stuff that customers hope for but rarely get. Lisa and her well selected team gave us soup to nuts advice on what to plant, how to decorate, materials to use, where we could save money and where we should pay up. But it was after the project was completed that Lisa really took it to the next level. Where many contractors collect their last check and walk away, Lisa has remained involved with us on an ongoing basis. She checks up on the house after storms, obsessively monitors plants and drainage, provides advice that extends beyond the scope of her project. She has gone above and beyond on too many occasions to count. Unbelievable service, expertise and quality. Lisa and her partner Frank are just lovely people to work with.

“Mierop Design performed a miracle-our once unusable backyard and deck was transformed to a beautiful place to gather. Lisa tackled a very challenging project with vision and determination and it surpasses what we had hoped for. She has unique ideas yet is very practical in choosing perennials and shrubs, which means that we ended up with wonderful plants that are not too finicky. Lisa was sensitive to our taste and respected our wishes to be as ‘green’ as possible. Working with Lisa was a pleasure and I highly recommend Mierop Design without reservations.”

“Lisa I wanted to thank you, Frank, and the amazing crew for making our home look so beautiful. It’s not just beautiful, it’s functional, which was my main goal. We park our cars in the back and side now – no more moving four cars every morning! We’ve received so many wonderful comments about the work. It was a very big project and we are very happy with the outcome!”

“I must admit that although I had very high expectations for my landscaping project, I did not really know what I ultimately wanted nor did I have a great deal of knowledge on plants, gardens and landscape. I was looking for someone I could really trust to be on top of every element and who would be accountable, professional, dependable, and on top of that – fun to work with on a project. I am thrilled with the results!”

“Working with Lisa Mierop and her excellent team has been a pleasure in every way. She is extremely professional listening, to my concerns and ideas, and returning with a range of brilliant ideas, designs and solutions. She is expert at structural concerns as well and brings in the most professional experts, engineers and contractors. On my property, resolving the flooding issue was paramount and Lisa and her team were deeply knowledgeable and came up with solutions to this complex issue. I have worked with several garden designers over the decades and none are as professional and involved. "

“In a suburban community there is never a shortage of businesses offering landscape design services. However, Mierop Design is exceptional and unique. We have worked with Mierop Design for fifteen years both professionally on renovation sites both commercial and residential, and personally at our own home. We completely trust her design input and depend on her timely execution of the plans. Lisa creates landscapes the way a painter fills a blank canvas. The result is a mature garden look on completion. It’s art in open spaces.”

“Lisa is top notch. Bar none, she is one of the finest professionals we've worked with for the past 18 years as homeowners. She combines the best qualities you could expect in a landscape architect: mastery of her trade, impeccable service, and flexibility.

Her expertise and vision have directed us through each step of improvement of the property. We will continue to turn to her for refreshing and renewing the grounds as we have come to depend on her insight and advice. Our property is extraordinary and we have Lisa to thank for that.”

“We used Lisa to completely redesign our tired, overgrown property. She developed plans for both the landscape and the hardscape as well as conceived a new area for our pool. It was a very complicated project that had to be completed in stages. Lisa has a wonderful aesthetic that is elegant yet natural. Her design perfectly complemented the style of our house. She was easy to work with and very open to our ideas and we highly recommend Lisa Mierop.”

“Lisa is a consummate professional -- creative, comprehensive and diligent. The old adage of "you get what you pay for" is absolutely true when you work with Mierop Design. If you want a top quality job of the highest caliber, no hassles, want to sleep well at night, and also get a beautiful transformation, then you can't go wrong with Lisa. She re-did our entire yard, installed a raised vegetable garden, dog run, new patio, new fence, renovated our screened in porch, new EVERYTHING front and back. Highly recommend! We're delighted.”

Mierop Design has been a great partner in helping us to upgrade the outdoor spaces around our house. Listening to our needs, and requirements, Lisa first created a comprehensive Master Plan that allowed us to address projects according to priority. Her design approach blended aesthetics with practical considerations such as utility, budget and return on investment. Lisa presented several solutions to us of which we were not aware, and likely would not have otherwise considered. Those we have implemented so far have transformed the way we use our outdoor space and dramatically improved the curb appeal of our home. Lisa has been a joy to work with.
