At Maryland-based Site Resources, landscape architects and civil engineers work together to design exceptional places. Integrating form and function since 1994, their integrated approach creates a balance between the natural and built environments, uniting the owner's intent with the long-term wellbeing of communities and the environment. The firm's three principals and twenty-three employees interweave the expertise of landscape architects and civil engineers throughout the entire design process.

Skip's Hall, Ashley Addiction Treatment, Havre de Grace, Md.

Skip's Hall promotes Ashley Addiction Treatment's mission to provide a foundation for discovering a pathway to recovery and wellness for those impacted by substance-use disorders. With 24 acres overlooking the Chesapeake Bay, the site and landscaping focus on environmental health by mitigating impacts on the Chesapeake Bay Critical Areas. Storm water management practices integrated into the landscape design purposefully preserve and protect, while supporting therapeutic and operational requirements. Micro-bioretention areas, heavily planted with native wetland flora and a rainbow array of perennials, surround the hall. The overall effect is a thoughtful design, considerate of the surrounding environment, while supporting the well being of facility clients.

Gira Center for Communications & Information Technology, Frostburg State University, Frostburg, Md.

A central development theme for the 4-acre, Frostburg-located Center for Communication & Information Technology was environmental stewardship. Storm water management strategies were crafted to allow students to move through a central courtyard and literally walk over the site drainage. This flow initiates on the building's green roof, showcasing sedums and sedges arranged in sweeping arcs around two observation platforms and a curvilinear walkway. Downspouts direct roof rainwater to the base of the building and then daylight the water into narrow open concrete runnels. The central oval runnel features two discharge "waterfalls" that cascade drainage into a vegetated micro-bioretention facility. The highly visible and interactive nature of the design helps the university fulfill environmental education goals while providing thoughtful storm drainage.

Gilchrist Center Renovation, Towson, Md.

Outdoor sanctuaries for the Gilchrist Care Center were fashioned using more than forty different selections of trees, shrubs and perennial herbaceous species nestled amongst the hardscape to form small individual "alcoves" furnished with tables and chairs to encourage casual social interaction across the 5-acre site. A meandering walkway links each outdoor space for a fluid pedestrian experience along the entire length of the building's backyard.

Albin O. Kuhn Library Pond & Promenade, University of Maryland, Baltimore County, Catonsville, Md.

Transformation of this iconic Baltimore County campus 1/2-acre water feature required Site Resources' hallmark blend of landscape architecture and civil engineering to re-envision this campus oasis. The original pond was redesigned to control storm water quantity and address water quality regulations by introducing separate micro-bioretention facilities. The promenade around the pond is enhanced with landscape boulders, stone retaining walls and stamped concrete walkways. A small plaza space aside the promenade invites users to become chess pieces on an interactive checkerboard paver surface, and seating areas offer a chance to appreciate the rich palette of plant and aquatic species.
