Happy Retirement
to Will Smith!

Registered Landscape Architect Will Smith retired this summer. Will served as the lead designer on multiple award-winning projects throughout Maryland and Virginia, and touched the lives of many clients during his 20 year career at McHale Landscape Design through his ability to create beautiful gardens and outdoor living spaces. 

Will is going to be missed, but his contributions to the success of McHale Landscape Design will never be forgotten.

We wish Will the best as he moves back home to West Virginia to help out on the family farm. 

Best of luck, Will!

PROJECT PROFILE
Harbortown Waterfront Residence
McHale Landscape Design recently was contacted to assist in the remodeling of this quaint, bungalow-style cottage along the Eastern Shore waterfront. 

Our firm installed a new granite-bordered arrival court, cottage style fencing, and a colorful planting scheme.

Mature shade trees that completely blocked the front entrance were removed to make the cottage more welcoming and approachable to visitors. The new Texas beige gravel driveway was bordered with true granite pavers leading to a brick arrival landing and front entry walk, while the classic, white cedar fence highlights an entryway planted with colorful Nepeta and Knock Out roses.
SEASONAL STAR
Caryopteris 

A favorite of butterflies, Caryopteris is known for its showy blue flower spikes. Low maintenance and drought tolerant, the plant is a perfect addition to a full sun cutting garden.

Its late summer bloom time extends interest in the garden into the fall.
