Happy Couple


"I loved Jim’s design, the team that did the installation was first-rate, and the follow-up customer service was impeccable. That’s why we came back immediately for round two!"

The magic begins immediately when leaving a closed room and walking outside onto a patio.

Zoe Leoudaki, Washington DC

We recently completed a major house renovation that left a huge mud pit in our backyard. I have worked for years with American Plant for garden upkeep, but never for designing from scratch a seating area and garden that would complement a contemporary house. So I had my reservations but decided to ask them for a quote.  I was pleasantly surprised when I met landscape architect Basem Saah. He understood what I envisioned and managed to translate abstract ideas, like “chaotic garden with a structure”  and “a zen passage that's like a whisper” into reality. He was willing to revisit multiple times the plans until we got the right fit for our budget. He was very knowledgeable about different plants and materials and had great ideas on how to incorporate rocks and stones in a way I had never thought would work. He created visually arresting features in a very small space.  He was also willing to rethink and revise elements that I felt needed to be reconfigured.  We’ll go back to him when we are ready to do our front yard.
