Water Management


Water is everything. Invariably water is the most critical factor in determining the success or failure of the project, regardless of the landscape proposal at hand. The management of water flow through grading, use of swales and riverstone features is an essential element of every landscape. We take pride in our understanding of best use practices for controlling water’s influence on the projects we design. Terry Cummings, the owner and principle designer of Scenic Lawns & Landscaping, Inc. has a BS degree in Agronomy (Soil Science) from The University of Maryland and has a particularly strong interest in the soils found in our region and the drainage problems associated with many of them. The proper use of plant materials and grading techniques is foremost on his mind when beginning a landscape design.
