I have had the pleasure of working with Tom Benjamin since 2011 when he designed and constructed the first rain garden at the VA Medical Center.  Tom is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to plants. I have contracted with him to design multiple perennial gardens throughout the VA campus.  In creating the gardens, Tom takes into account all aspects affecting the success of the plantings, including aftercare.  

He is a pleasure to work with and I always come away inspired and with new information.
