The success of Solena truly is a team effort and we are proud to have assembled a great group of artisans and support staff to make your landscape construction experience and fun & exciting one.

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.

“We own an English Tudor home in Long Beach and had the front yard re-landscaped by Mitch. We wanted an English garden with lots of flowers and color and he did an outstanding job. We have had several compliments from neighbors walking by about how pretty it is. We would recommend Mitch and his crew, who did a great job in a timely manner. They were very professional and a pleasure to work with during the redesign. Thanks, Mitch!”
