Tomi was great to work with on the design of my garden.  We were starting with a completely clean slate and she was very good visualizing the possibilities and providing different ideas on options available and ways of achieving our objectives.  She provided a lot of pictorial material to help in plant selection and provided literally carloads of samples for making decisions about hardscaping.  We also did a lot of work on runoff control including installation of three large raingardens and she also did an excellent job of integrating them into the overall garden design…


Landis Garden Design delivered in every way an exceptional experience. From the exquisite garden design to her doggedness in working with installers and contractors to her persistence in navigating city channels for tree rebates to save money, Tomi Landis made the process collaborative, stress-free and fun.  She was out in muddy boots for hours in freezing rain to ensure that the work was being done exactly to her environmental-friendly specifications.  I had thought at one time that a garden designer would be a needless expense and I could go right to a installer, but I couldn’t haven’t been more wrong. Every penny for Landis Design was money well spent.


We hired Landis Garden Design to renovate our back garden, which had become overgrown and unappealing. We replaced the shaded scraggly lawn with a wonderful hardscape patio, removed the overgrown plantings, and started over. We could not be more pleased with the result and with Landis Garden Design. Tomi is an accomplished multi-tasker. She works quickly, efficiently and collaboratively and fulfills all promises. She created an excellent design and chose beautiful and interesting plant materials. Our back is so much more open and inviting.


Landis Garden Design designed and installed a rain garden, re-landscaped my back yard with new plant beds and sod, and removed a pond and replaced with a peastone/pebbled dining area. They arrived when scheduled, and completed work on time, and if there were any issues, response and resolution was quick and efficient. Follow up with replacement plants and answering questions about maintenance was helpful and swift.

Navigating D.C.’s perilous permitting process, razing a house in Washington is not for the faint of heart. The rocky road to tear down and the equally arduous avenue to build anew are clearly “long and convoluted,” said Chris Landis of Landis Construction.
