A Growing Family Tradition
Since 1960, the Johnsons have devoted themselves to giving great landscaping services to Northwest D.C., Bethesda, Chevy Chase, Kensington, Silver Spring, Rockville, Potomac and Olney. Jim Johnson opened Johnson’s Landscaping Service over 50 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! It’s a testament to value of quality landscape design that lasts for years.
Generations Of Landscaping Experience
Jim’s sons Jimmy, Charlie, and Matt now strive to continue to uphold their standards for landscaping excellence. Johnson’s Landscaping Service, Inc. is poised to continue serving the customers of the Washington, D.C. area into the next generation. We’re here for you today, and we’ll be here for you tomorrow. Customers keep coming back because we ensure quality service.
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 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.
Courteous, Skilled Craftsman

One of our most popular services has to be lighting. We believe that exterior lighting is the final touch for any transformation. When you add this element to your outdoor space, it can make a massive difference. No matter what you have in mind, our team of experts can help you achieve the look you desire. After all, we want to make your vision a reality.
Our lighting can transform your outdoor space. We can highlight certain element of your landscape with spot lighting of, say, your koi pond and rock garden. We can keep your parties going into the night with flood lighting of heavily trafficked areas. We can keep you home secure with motion-activated lighting around your entry points. Or we can make your walkways and steps safer with small lights around potential trouble spots.
When you’ve spent so much time and money on transforming your outdoor living spaces, you want to put that perfect bow on top. Our lighting is your perfect bow.
