“The garden turned out lovely – lots of neighbors commenting on it. Moreover, I can see already that the design will even keep improving over the years as Jamie planted many flowers and bushes in a height-wise staggered way that will ‘interact’ well with each other over the years. So far, every single tree or plant (including the grass sods) is thriving (1 year warranty on all plants!).”

Worry-Free Landscape Maintenance
“We love Johnson’s Landscapers! Our lawn and gardens have never looked as nice as they do now that Johnson’s have been taking care of everything. We like the one-stop approach. Instead of planting flowers in our gardens and pots ourselves, we now come home after work and it’s all done.”
– Kevin B.
perfect outdoor lighting
“Johnson’s has designed and installed my front and back gardens, path and tree lighting, a paved driveway, front path and front door porch. … I recommend them highly, they are professional and responsive, while taking a personal interest in their client’s requests and concerns.”
– Margaret P.
say goodbye to mud
“Excellent stone masons used beautiful slate and Belgian limestone – really good work on my stoop and front steps … and [they] created a small pea gravel patio.. … Highly recommend your company and craftsmanship with excellent customer service.”
– Pamela E.
“From the start, Matt listened to our ideas and needs and helped design a beautiful backyard patio for our home in Washington, DC. 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!”
– Nick G.
“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!”
– Jennifer S.
“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!

A Growing Family Tradition
Since 1960, we at Johnson’s Landscaping Service, Inc., have devoted ourselves to giving great landscaping services to Northwest D.C., Bethesda, Chevy Chase, Kensington, Silver Spring, Rockville, Potomac, Northeast D.C., Takoma Park, Laytonsville, Clarksburg, Brookeville, Darnestown, and Olney. Our dad, 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! It’s a testament to the value of quality landscape design that lasts for years.
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.
Visionary Ideas with Panache
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.
Form Meets Function Beautifully
Why install a French drain when you can add some panache and make it a dry creek bed? Why settle for a simple retaining wall with 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.
Environmentally Friendly Landscaping
Our landscape design and maintenance teams understand and appreciate the unique ecological landscape of the D.C. metro area. We know native plants that not only thrive in this specific climate and soil conditions but also contribute to the sustainability and ecological balance of the region. Focusing on native plants not only ensures a lush, vibrant landscape the fosters a healthier and more sustainable ecosystem.
Landscape Maintenance Saves You Time
Think of the things you like to do or even have to do. Does work (you have a job that) take up most of your time? Do you have time for 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 needed to make your property consistently look beautiful takes up a lot of time, especially during the spring and fall seasons. If you have other commitments like work, hobbies, or a family, you should consider saving time by hiring a landscape maintenance contractor.
One-of-a-Kind Landscaping Designs
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 the process. 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 garden grows with exactly the look you want.
We’ll have ideas for you within days. The most important part is that our consultative and interactive process ensures you get exactly what you want. We will work hard to find an idea you love before we take the first measurement.
Courteous, Skilled Craftsmen
Our builders have delighted clients with perfectly executed landscaping for decades. They work meticulously to implement our plans flawlessly. Our teams arrive at your home knowledgeable about the project with a thorough strategy for getting your landscape looking exactly how you want it to look.
Lighting that Turns Heads
Exterior lighting is the final touch for any landscape project. Our lighting can transform your outdoor space. We can highlight certain landscape elements by installing spot lighting for, 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 your 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.

Landscaping that lasts
“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 and 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!
