Ponds can create a Zen-like atmosphere to your landscape. Horizon Outdoor Design has vast experience in custom pond design and installation. Any size or shape can be created to provide the ultimate outdoor escape.

Lawn Installation & Renovation

Lawn Installation & Renovation
Few things accentuate your home’s natural beauty better than a flourishing lush, green lawn. Proper timing and techniques are critical components to establish a new or renovated lawn.

Horizon Outdoor Design Full-Service Lawn Installation & Maintenance Includes:

Crabgrass Control—nothing frustrates a homeowner more than crabgrass spoiling a pristine lawn. Crabgrass is an annual weed germinating in April, setting seed in August, and dying with autumn’s first frost. Crabgrass has tremendous reproductive capabilities. Horizon Outdoor Design employs a host of remedies to keep crabgrass under control.

Fertilizing Programs—Horizon Outdoor Design tailors a Spring/Summer/Fall fertilizing program that helps keep your lawn lush and green.

Broadleaf Weed Killer—Horizon Outdoor Design’s lawn maintenance also includes a program for controlling: arrowhead, dandelion, docks, henbit, goldenrod, lambs-quarter, mustard, pepper grass, pigweed, plantains, ragweed, shepherd’s purse, thistles, wild morning glory, wild radish and many other broadleaf weeds without harming your grass.

Landscape Lighting

Low-Voltage Landscape Lighting

Horizon Outdoor Design doesn’t want you to stop enjoying your custom designed landscape once the sun goes down.We can customize a landscape lighting plan that not only makes your outdoor living space functional, but gives your landscape design a completely distinctive “evening look.” No runways or landing pads here, only the soft glow of your house and landscape softly lit. Let Horizon Outdoor Design show you how up-lighting trees and foundations—or—a creative back dropping and shadowing landscape lighting scheme can accentuate your home in ways you never imagined.

Ground Water Control

Ground Water Control

Ground water control and proper drainage is essential to your property’s welfare. Standing water is not only unattractive, but it can also be a health hazard. Horizon offers a wide-array of water control solutions including: custom drainage control, French drains, piping out downspouts, or strategically placed drain catch basins. Swales can be created, or repaired, to maintain positive water flow at all times. Top soil can be added to foundations to control water flow and keep your house safe from ground water.

Pesticide Applications

MDA Certified Pesticide Applications

The Maryland Department of Agriculture’s Integrated Pest Management (IPM) system was developed to ensure pesticides are handled and used in only the safest manner. We use the IPM method of monitoring plant material for pest infestation. This monitoring system prior to treatment greatly reduces the amount of unnecessary pesticides released into your property’s air and environment. Our clients also save money by not paying for the spraying of unnecessary chemicals. All Horizon’s pest applicators are MDA certified.
