Led by the owner, Mitch Kalamian, each member of our team has been trained to exceed our client’s expectations by providing the best customer service and craftsmanship possible. We have a trusted and great reputation and it is well earned.
Mitch is a well-known landscape designer frequently featured on HGTV and is a trusted landscape design expert with years of construction experience. He is the author of two books “Distinctive Landscapes of Southern California” and a Consumer Guide designed to help and educate as one enters into landscape construction.
Since 1987, he has personally designed and supervised the installation of hundreds of custom landscape construction projects. As a hands-on designer & builder, Mitch has worked with celebrities, professional athletes, entrepreneurs and executives alike, creating “ultimate” gardens for his clients. His ability to capture each client’s tastes and style make him one of the country’s most exciting and sought-after landscape designers.
The key to Mitch’s success is his broad range of design creativity. Unlike many designers, he doesn’t have any one style or design specialty. He approaches each project as an artist approaches a blank canvas combing materials to fit his desired theme – from Mediterranean to Zen, Contemporary or Traditional. His designs reflect your wants and needs, your tastes and style, your lifestyle, the theme of your home and the lay of the land.
“Together we can create the sanctuary, play yard or entertainers’ paradise that you’ve always dreamed of.
I design the “lifestyle” that reflects your quality of life.”
Led by foreman, Hugo Cortez, each crewmember is an expert in their respective field – whether it be masonry, concrete finishing, sprinkler systems or nightlighting – and everyone is aware of how the project will come together. Hugo has almost 20 years of field experience working side by side with Mitch and building the signature Solena look.
Running the show is our Project Manager, Mark Morinishi. Mark is a Cal Poly SLO alum and has background in landscape architecture and construction. He helps keep things running smoothly on site and keeps the crews focused on the overall vibe that we want for the project.
The hub of our operation is the office manager, Ursula Green. Ursula is our Client Liaison and handles things from the administrative standpoint - she is also here to answer any questions that our clients may have about our contracts or payments.
