A growing body of research points to the beneficial effects that exposure to the natural world has on health, reducing stress and promoting healing. Now, policymakers, employers, and healthcare providers are increasingly considering the human need for nature in how they plan and operate.

Let’s talk about outdoor lighting for a second. When planning and budgeting for your project, lighting is a MUST! This small investment can have a huge impact on your space.

It gives you the ability to highlight and showcase features on your property that are special and interesting. It also helps you maximize the time you’re able to use your outdoor space. With proper lighting, the party does not have to stop when it gets dark! 💡 🎉 🔥

So honored to be a part of this project! If you haven’t seen this newly installed 🚲 rack on the creek, stop by and take a 👀.

Happening now!!! Look what's going in along Carroll Creek Park 👀 If you love these Frederick Bike Racks in ASL, come to tomorrow evening's Pitchcraft Downtown Frederick and help pick the next placemaking project for Downtown Frederick. Tickets are just $20 and the entire cost of your ticket goes directly toward funding an idea (like this one!) which is pitched by a member of the community.

Frederick Bike Racks in ASL was the winning idea from last year's Pitchcraft event, pitched by Tiffany Saccente and Chanel Bonheyo. In addition to the funding provided by ticket sales, this project received significant support from Shockley Honda. Thank you to everyone who helped make this project possible!

When this client came to us, they requested a fully operational outdoor kitchen that could also be moved due to special requirements from their building. Our carpentry team delivered just that! This custom outdoor kitchen is the ideal spot for entertaining and we still can’t get over how BEAUTIFUL it turned out. 😍😍

Meet Josh, our lead carpenter! Josh came to us with a background in home remodeling, but these days you will find him building pergolas, outdoor kitchens, custom furniture, porches, fences, you name it!

We’re so grateful to have such a skilled craftsman on our team. We’re also so excited to see him step into his new role as a father. Josh welcomed his first 👶🏼 yesterday! 💙💙

We have had the privilege of maintaining this property for over 15 years!

One of our favorite things about this landscape is how warm and welcoming the entrance is.

The seasonal color and mature shrubs play a huge part in this!

This post has been a long time coming! We have been quiet on here the past couple months and it’s because we have some BIG things happening!

Since our founding in 1982, we have constantly been evolving, improving, and adding services to our offerings.

We are proud that our development has formed us into a one stop shop for all your outdoor living needs and dreams! Honoring this process has lead us to rebrand our company to include a shortened name and a redesigned website; especially noteworthy is our updated logo which uniquely depicts our growth from the small shoot in the capable and nurturing hands of our founders in 1982 to a fully formed tree with deep roots that now stands strong and stately for years to come.

We’re so excited for the next phase of our journey and hope you will follow along!
