Our crews are spending more time out in Howard County recently as we begin work on hard and softscaping for Phase I of the Hilltop Housing complex and a new recreation center in Ellicott City, Maryland. The Hilltop site and the new recreation center will comprise the first phase of redevelopment for what will eventually be a larger, mixed income community.

E-Landscape has been selected to install the landscape for a new medical office building in Odenton, Maryland. The project, designed by CR Goodman and Associates and located at the corner of Sappington Station Road and Route 175, is a joint venture of Anne Arundel Medical Center and Johns Hopkins University. The $14 million, 60,000 square foot medical building, along with the multi-family "Odenton Gateway" project by Johnson Development, are meant to anchor a future Town Center-style development in Odenton. The project will include primary and specialty care services and could open by the end of 2012 or early 2013.

Here in Maryland, we've had a warm winter and as a results, perennials seem to be blooming about a month ahead of schedule. This time of year, blooming Daffodils (Narcissus) are one of the first signs that Spring is on its way. Few plants provide as much visual impact with as little effort. There are many reasons for Daffodils' popularity - they are hardy, colorful, and thrive in most soil types (so long as that soil is well drained), and attract few insects and pests. Because they tend to bloom before deciduous trees get their first leaves, Daffodils can be planted underneath trees despite their need for sunlight.
This winter, the crews at E-Landscape have been busy working on further defining a client's side yard from a turf area into a formal rose garden. The space is accessed from the dining room via french doors and steps that lead down to the garden area. The garden's central axis is framed with Hick's Yews, an upright evergreen shrub which forms a hedge separating the front lawn from the rose garden. A new, interior, circular planting bed will be home to the owner's choice of hybrid tea roses (a long standing passion) and gravel paths will lead guests and gardeners through the space and down steps to the backyard. The path will be defined with steel edging along the perimeter to contain the gravel surface and maintain the perfect arc in the very formal space.
