Chesapeake Beautification Award – 2018

The group of judges from the Chesapeake Environmental Improvement Council were particularly impressed with how the owners transformed the previously overgrown site by surrounding the new building with native trees and shrubs alongside the pleasantly landscaped parking area.

The facility was designed to naturally filter the storm water runoff with added vegetation and the new lighting adds to the evening charm of the property. Well thought out hardscape and landscape, including wood chip mulch and well maintained lawns put the finishing touches on this once underutilized plot of land.
