Are you planning on installing a new driveway at your Rockville, MD home? If so, you have a lot of decisions to make. Driveways can be crafted from a number of materials, including interlocking pavers, cobblestone bricks, and cobblestone granite, and can be found in a variety of widths and designs. When planning the look of your new Rockville, MD driveway, you should also what kind of landscaping and plants you’d like incorporated around and along the driveway.
Landscape design around driveways must allow for ample room for vehicular use, as well as allow for ample room to walk around the driveway. Trees around driveways should be installed to allow room for overhang; try to sit trees at least three feet back from the driveway surface. What’s more, make sure to choose trees that do not have invasive root systems, as such root systems can grow underneath and push up driveway surfaces. You should also choose plants that are resistant to heat, as driveways can become very hot in direct sunlight. Heat from driveways will be released to adjacent landscaped areas, so you must plan for temperature extremes. Plants that are incorporated near driveways should also be strong and hardy to survive snow pile-up and de-icing salt used during the winter months.

The retaining wall and paver patio was tastefully blended into the back of our house and the contours and seams were impeccable.... The field stone terrace garden plots were truly a work of art and science... Thanks again for such a beautiful job.

We are thrilled with our new stream and pond. We waited a long time, did a lot of research and talked to many landscapers about this work. Although we were expecting your work to be good, it turned out better than our expectations. Your attitude, as well as your crew's, was professional and upbeat...
