  • I’ve given Sanctum two very challenging projects of varying scope/budget, and I’ve been delighted with the vision, execution of design and attention to detail. Additionally, the company has followed up and given me great advice on a host of other related projects that they weren’t directly involved with. I can’t imagine working with anyone else on landscape design. Working with Sanctum has been a pleasure for me.

  • I think of Sanctum every evening when we sit out and view the serenity and the beauty of our backyard. The pic that was taken from behind my favorite tree (I call it the weeper) is just breathtaking. We plan to do the front hardscape in the Spring.

  • Tom Flowers and Sanctum took a very complicated problem of fitting a carport and back yard design into a very tight space for us. We were very afraid of the project looking “added on”. Tom lead us through the design phase and scoped out the project so that we understood what we should expect from a cost standpoint. His group took us from design all the way to completion. We were amazed at how the project looked like it was always a part of the house- except better. Exceptional design, a clear-cut understanding of the project budget and delivery of what was promised. We are very pleased.

  • Sanctum helped make our outside living space an “oasis” of peace and tranquility. Sanctum was visionary with our space and worked in a wonderful partnership with us throughout the entire process. We plan on staying in our home a very long time and enjoying each day that we can be outside thanks to the beautiful outdoor room and decks Sanctum created for us. If you are looking to create an outdoor living space, Sanctum is the partner to have!

  • The recent addition of a new patio, landscaping, and a water feature has attracted lots of favorable comments from neighbors and passersby. We are delighted with the results and thoroughly enjoying the enhanced areas of our yard. Tom and Josh were great to work with. They were helpful, creative, and flexible. They presented us with lots of options and responded to our feedback and requests. They carefully managed the entire process including working with our neighborhood covenants committee. They made sure that the subcontractors completed the work properly and according to plan. We have already recommended Sanctum to several friends and neighbors.

  • I believe Tom Flowers has grown the most beautiful landscape in my yard. Tom incorporated beautiful gardens with architectural elements such as fencing, a gazebo and a pool, thereby creating a more unique and unified space.
