Landscape Design Services
Horizon Outdoor Design excels at creating landscape designs to complement your home’s natural beauty and environment, and can personalize on several different factors:
- Client Usage: Our designers work closely with you to determine your needs and uses for your outdoor living space. We then tailor our designs to meet each of your needs.

This attention to your home’s outdoor environment ensures that the plants and materials we install will not only create a stunning outdoor living space but will also thrive in their natural surroundings.
- Size and Budget: Whether your property is an urban backyard, courtyard, or a sprawling estate, Horizon Outdoor Design can create a functional landscape design to fit your every need. No matter what your budget, large or small, Horizon’s innovative design and installation team will create an outdoor environment that exceeds your expectations.

Pond Design & Installation
Ponds can create a Zen-like atmosphere for your landscape. Horizon Outdoor Design has years of experience in custom pond design and installation. We can create any size or shape to provide the ultimate outdoor escape.
We consult with you on your pond’s proper care and maintenance, and if a fishpond is what you envision, Horizon Outdoor Design can assist with expert advice on the care of fish species that thrive in an outdoor pond. Even smaller living spaces can benefit from an outdoor water area by our installing a pond-less waterfall system or other water feature.
Full-Service Property Maintenance
Horizon Outdoor Design will not only create your stunning landscape, patio, or pond, we will also ensure that your landscape stays as beautiful as the day we installed it with our Full-Service Property Maintenance Program that includes:
- Weeding and Leaf Removal
- Crabgrass and Broadleaf Weed control
- Flower Displays and Maintenance
Horizon Outdoor Design’s maintenance staff goes an extra step by alerting you to any problem or potential problem areas on your property or landscape. This attention to customer service affords you the security of knowing your landscape is always in top-notch condition.
Plant & Tree Installation
Horizon Outdoor Design employs only high-quality products under strict installation standards. Our installation technicians are trained on the latest planting techniques. Using locally grown and cultivated plants that are acclimated to our region helps reduce overall loss and plant replacement.
Horizon Outdoor Design offers a limited one-year plant warranty on newly planted trees and shrubs. For more information about the plant warranty, please contact your Horizon representative.
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 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.
Sidewalk & Patio Installation

Horizon Outdoor is NCMA certified .
Horizon Outdoor Design has extensive experience designing and building retaining walls and can build one for any situation—from smaller dry stack stone walls to timber retainers, or large prefabricated block walls for drainage.

Low-Voltage Landscape Lighting
With Horizon Outdoor Design, you can continue enjoying your custom designed landscape once the sun goes down. We can plan with you a landscape lighting scheme 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 backdropping and shadowing landscape lighting plan can accentuate your home in amazing ways.
Energy efficient, low-voltage landscape lighting can take your home’s exterior and curb-appeal to the next level, increasing perceived value to buyers.
Ground Water Control
Ground water control and proper drainage are essential to your property’s welfare. Standing water is not only unattractive, 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 always maintain positive water flow. Topsoil can be added to foundations to control water flow and keep your house safe from ground water.
MDA Certified Pesticide Applications: All Horizon’s pest applicators are Maryland Department of Agriculture (MDA ) certified. License #26470.
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.
Horizon Outdoor Design offers commercial snow removal and cleanup for properties in the Baltimore area. This includes plowing, shoveling, and de-icing (salting) services 24 hours a day required for businesses or homeowner associations (HOAs) with property management.
