Seana started with Meadows Farms in 1995, but that was not when her interest in horticulture began. Before she could even walk, her grandfather would carry her around the woods and garden, teaching her the names of plants. A Native Virginian, Seana strives to design plants in the areas where they will naturally thrive. She takes this same approach to ponds and hardscape projects, naturalizing them into the surrounding environment. Seana is a Virginia Certified Horticulturist and a Virginia Certified Pesticide Applicator. In order to keep up with new products and plants, she recertifies annually with Espoma Organics and Proven Winners.
Over the years, Seana has held a variety of positions in the landscape industry, ranging from customer service, scheduling, and retail and landscape management, to buying, marketing and finance. This broad exposure allows her to provide a high level of customer service to her clients and to give realistic expectations during the design and install process and beyond. Seana prides herself in educating her clients about their plants, ponds and hardscape materials, giving them the knowledge to properly maintain their designs for years to come.
This passion for educating carries not only to her clients and coworkers, but to the landscape industry, as a whole. Seana is a Byron Wates Award Recipient, for dedicated and invaluable service. She currently serves as President of the Northern Virginia Nursery and Landscape Association (NVNLA) and Secretary/Treasurer of the Virginia Nursery and Landscape Association (VNLA). She is also the Legislative Director of VNLA, where she advocates on local, state and national platforms, in areas such as labor, invasive plants, pollinator protection, zoning and water quality. In addition, she serves on the Virginia Noxious Weeds Council, several water quality working groups and the Virginia Pollinator Protection Strategy Committee. This exposure keeps her up to date on industry issues, including plant diseases and insects, the Virginia Conservation Assistance Program (VCAP) and new innovations in materials and installation techniques.
Due to her industry commitments, Seana works primarily in Fauquier, Prince William, Culpeper and Rappahannock Counties.
