From Our Clients:
"I cannot speak too highly of American Plant Landscaping. Both Tony and Donna, as well as the workmen, were completely professional and did a fabulous job. The drainage pipe took care of the problem we had for a number of years, and for the first time since we built the house and landscaped some 22 years ago, the property (a 2-acre, heavily-wooded lot) looks as good as it did when the original landscaping was installed. I thought the price we paid for the work was extremely fair, and the job was done on time and on schedule, as promised. We have had a lot of experience with landscapers in the Potomac, Maryland area, some good but mostly not so good. I will now use American Plant on an ongoing basis for all our landscaping needs, as this company is the first one I have used in over two decades in which I have total confidence.
"American Plant sent one of their landscape designers, Janey Joyce, to work with us. She was excellent: professional, knowledgeable, friendly and fun to work with. Her ideas always made sense and lined up with what we were trying to do. She presented several options for us when we told her we needed to economize a bit. She also gave us some ideas on planning for future improvements, since we couldn't do everything at that time. The work was done on time, which was great since we had a big party planned at the house, and the quality was excellent. Everything looked perfect and we received many compliments from visitors and neighbors. The landscapers were also very competent and polite, and the job leader was great to work with, responding to requests we had along the way. All in all, a really positive experience and American Plant would be first on our list to contact for our next project.
"I wanted to say how delighted we are at the design and the results of all the hard work by you (Donna Evans) and your team. The yard is transformed, and it feels like a new house. Even my teenage daughter is gushing! You are a true pleasure to work with, and I will make a point of recommending you and your work to others who may ask."
"Donna, thanks so much! You clearly know your stuff and Phase 1 turned out great!:
"As longtime customers, we knew going with American Plant for our recent landscape installation would be the right choice. And we were not disappointed. On the contrary, we are delighted with the results! Susy Altmann was a pleasure to work with. Her vision and competence were apparent upon first meeting, so our comfort level was high from the start. Under Susy's leadership and guidance, the three-man crew, Juan , Lenin and Clemente worked wonders. They worked with amazing speed and skill with a professionalism and diligence that was remarkable.
"You (Susy) and your crew did a fantastic job! It's amazing what was
accomplished in just one day. Please thank the men for us."
"From the very outset American Plant (Susy Altmann) produced great ideas and a fascinating outline on how to develop a useless lawn into a wonderful patio. Ideas were exchanged, our opinions integrated in the final plan - and from the moment the work started everything worked according to plans and schedule. Result: A beautiful patio and a great addition to our wonderful home, done by professional people!"
"We could not be happier with our new landscaping! Your design (Susy Altmann) and plant selection have transformed our yard. We admire our new front beds every time we pull into the driveway, and looking out onto our backyard from the kitchen is such a pleasure! All of our neighbors have complimented us on how nice our landscaping looks."
"Mr. Antonio Argueta and his coworker did an excellent job installing my trees."

"...the service provided recently by your crew was near perfect. I particularly commend Tony Lightbourne, who is the epitome of the 'working' Project Manager. He came to our house, several days in advance to determine our needs, and then several days later met met at the nursery to show me the kind of bushes that he felt would satisfy our needs. And yes, we are truly satisfied. You can be assured that American Plant will now be our nursery of choice."
