McHale installed a comprehensive design-build project in 2006 encompassing a pool, pool deck, outdoor grill and pizza oven, along with landscape plantings and a driveway. The team began maintaining the property, which is located on the waterfront on Bodkin Point, Maryland, in 2007 and has been ensuring the property stays tidy, mowed and manicured ever since.
Horticultural services include irrigation management, deer control, hardscape pressure-washing, arbor care and chemical turf applications. The pool terrace and fireplace patio are Pennsylvania flagstone, the former laid on a concrete slab while the fireplace patio was tightly laid with stone dust. A woodland garden expands yearly with planting enhancements; sweeps of nepeta, achillea, fern and other deer-resistant plants are used. The driveway is paved with concrete pavers.
- A circle of turf elegantly anchors the home’s front entrance
- Perc drains under the flat lawn ensure proper drainage; a raised pool terrace solves other drainage issues
- Carefully pruned forest pansy redbud creates a scenic, veiled approach
- Seasonal containers, annual plantings and holiday décor are rotated throughout the year
