Any successful business transaction requires effective communication. In commercial landscaping, one aspect of transparency is knowing the scope of a project, which means clearly outlining your needs and budget, and then communicating and negotiating with the business you hire to get the job done. Without fine-tuning the scope, you can end up with unwelcome surprises, usually ones that have to do with time, money and how things are done, or not done. That gap between what you expect and what actually happens (also known as the scope gap), is something you want to avoid.
If you are looking for the perfect space where grass and sunshine meet together, then a tanning lawn may be something worth incorporating into your landscaping. A tanning lawn provides a space for people to sit, relax, read a book, all while soaking up the sunshine. The ideal space would lend itself to a quiet grassy sanctuary type area with a feeling of privacy. Choosing the right grass and plants for this space can make all the difference when it comes to building a landscaped area that is inviting.
Last week, E-Landscape began work on the installation of the landscape at the new CVS store located on Forest Drive in Annapolis, MD. We're working with General Contractor KPR Corporation and Landscape Architect Deborah M. Schwab for the client, Bay Village LLC.

Spring has arrived and for the crews at E-Landscape, that means it's tree planting time. Earlier today, our team worked on the installation of a 6' Caliper Japanese Maple at the American Trucking Association Offices in Southeast Washington, DC. A tree that large requires quite a bit of heavy lifting!
