Sculpting Nature

April 28, 2011 Leave a comment

In the northern reaches of Howard County, Maryland, despite new development, you still encounter narrow and winding country lanes, pastoral farmsteads and gently rolling verdant hills alive with native meadows, wetlands and natural ponds. It was just the kind of setting that attracted Bob Haney back in 2001, when he was looking for a new family home. He found what he wanted in Woodbine, Maryland, on the site of a former farm: five acres that included a spring-fed pond, a new 5,600-square-foot Cape Cod-style home and not much else. “There was no landscaping, no driveway, not a stitch of anything here,” says Haney. For the owner and president of Town Creek Landscaping, Pools and Construction, the site was the blank slate he’d often dreamed of, a place he could craft into a distinctive residence with plenty of room for large gatherings outside around a pool and patio and lots of play space for his three children and all of their friends.
