Gelman-Salop Garden

In our wildest imagination, we never expected our garden to be as fabulous as it turned out to be! Tom took our inchoate ideas and turned the garden into a masterpiece. He gave us all the elements we wanted but put them together in unique and unexpected ways. The design concept is simple, yet surprising in effect. The garden appears to be in full bloom from early spring throughout the fall and it is a delight all year round. It is planted so that the spring blossoms come in wave after wave. The summer plants catch the breeze during the long Washington summer and then come the autumn colors. Berries and evergreens color the garden throughout the winter.


Tom is easy and fun to work with. The work was done on time and within our budget. We could not have asked for a more successful experience or outcome. We heartily recommend Tom and his team.
