Johnson's Landscaping Team
Johnson's Landscaping Family

Meet the Team

The Johnson family has helped Maryland and D.C. homeowners with their landscaping since 1933. In 1960, the family founded Johnson’s Landscaping Service, Inc., which has delighted residents with innovative designs and reliable landscaping ever since. Today, the team brings hundreds of years of combined experience and training from the best horticulture universities in the nation to make homeowners’ landscaping dreams come true.


“The final outcome is better than we imagined!”

Johnson’s did a superb job excavating and building our backyard patio. From the start, Matt listened to our ideas and needs and helped design a beautiful backyard patio for our Washington, DC home. The crew was professional and didn’t cut a single corner. The final outcome is better than we imagined, with gorgeous pavers and up-lights on our trees. The work was finished quickly and professionally. We couldn’t be happier and we aim to work with Johnson’s in the future for our landscaping needs. Highly recommend!

Jim Johnson opened Johnson’s Landscaping Service over 60 years ago with a vision of top-quality service at affordable prices. That’s why most of our business comes from referrals and past customers!

Creative Solutions

Our design team is the best in the area, with degrees from the University of Maryland, George Washington University, Penn State University and Ball State University. Collectively, they have over a century of landscape design experience.

Our team solves problems with creative methods that save you money. Often, clients call us and aren’t exactly sure what they want. They rely on our visionary designers to help them solve issues such as cramped backyards or water pooling. We take our solutions to the next level and build dazzling features that double as problem-solvers.

Why just install a French drain when you can add some panache and make it a dry creek bed? Why settle for a simple retaining wall when you can have a raised seating area with a firepit? Our team looks at your yard not as a collection of obstacles, but as an array of opportunities.

Our Customers Love the Results we Deliver!

You never get less than our best. It shows in our reviews.

“My garden and front yard received endless compliments”

I have been working with Johnson’s Landscaping Services for many years and I could not be happier. Jamie Newell is my designer and he is fantastic. Jamie is creative, flexible and provides great customer service. I was fairly clueless about how to design a garden and he helped me every step of the way. My expectations were exceeded and my garden and front yard received endless compliments. When I sold my house, leaving my beautiful yard was the thing that was the hardest. I can’t wait to get started on my new project with Johnson’s at my new home!

“They are the best”

Johnson’s Landscaping is the BEST – I have used them for over a decade now, for both hardscapes (patios, walkways, etc) as well as plantings. They are the best – reasonable prices, super-excellent work, very reliable. Thank you!

“We know we’ll enjoy the landscaping for years to come.”

We have worked with Johnson’s landscaping on several projects now and each time has been a great experience. We started with the front and side yard. And just this month we asked them to do the backyard so that we can have a nice setting for our daughter’s small outdoor wedding.
After years of not knowing what to do with some difficult spaces because of deer, erosion, and a lot of shade, we found Johnson’s. They came up with a beautiful design, using deer resistant plants, creative landscaping, and even solved our drainage and erosion problems. We could not be happier with the results. We are spending more and more time outside enjoying our beautiful front, side and backyards. We know we’ll enjoy the landscaping for years to come. And, Johnson’s knew our deadline and we’re ready for our daughter’s wedding with time to spare!

Landscape Maintenance Saves You Time

Think of the things you like to do, or even have to do. Do you have a job that takes up most of your time? Any hobbies like golf, swimming, jogging? What about people you like to spend time with? Wouldn’t you want to commit a lot of time to social activities, your friends, and family?

All of the research and landscaping that needs to be done to make your property consistently look beautiful takes up a lot of time, especially during the fall and spring seasons. If you have other commitments like work, hobbies, or a family, you may want to consider saving time by hiring a landscape maintenance contractor.

Just think of all the things you could do with the time you will save instead of worrying about your landscape! Call our landscaping services today.

Custom Building

Our design-build process makes your dream landscaping come true. Our design team doesn’t approach every client with the same solutions. The 5-step process ensures your voice is heard throughout. During planning, designing and executing, we consult with our clients to form the big picture and then drill down to the details. We aim to get everything right the first time, so your lawn grows with exactly the look you want.

It’s the finer points in the design that really make your landscaping projects your own. If you tell us you want to lower your environmental impact, we can walk you through the native plants that will thrive in your gardens without needing external help. Or we can give you a plethora of options for rainwater collection. Want to entertain frequently? We can build seated gardens, patios with built-in grills or fireplaces that serve as a focal point for any gathering. And we’ll light it all as well, so you can use them at night. Concerned about erosion? We can plant your new vegetable garden in the raised area created by a retaining wall. Or build a rock garden in the bulkheads we install at the bottom of the slope.

These are just a small slice of the solutions our expert designers can offer. We’ll have ideas for days. The most important part is that our consultative and interactive process makes sure you get exactly what you want. We will work hard to find an idea you love before we take the first measurement.
