Landscaper Adopts, Restores Seven Courts Traffic Circle

Chesapeake Landscape Contractors donated about $1,200 in labor and materials to the circle, as well as scheduled maintenance.

The traffic circle at Seven Courts Drive and Proctor Lane had certainly seen better days. Existing plants had either died or overgrown, and residents were left wondering whose responsibility it was to care for it in the first place.

That was around the time that resident William Lutostanski, Jr. contacted Chesapeake Landscape Contractors, a White Marsh-based landscaper known for supporting local charities.

Following some planning with community leaders, the company donated about 4.5 hours of labor of four men, mulch, shrubs and roses to the circle—a job estimated at about $1,200. It was completed on Monday, according to Shannon Stallings, Chesapeake Landscape Contractors CEO.

The circle was also added to the company's regular maintenance schedule to prevent it from again falling into disrepair.

"Most of our client base is in the Perry Hall, White Marsh and Kingsville areas. We decided this was a way we could give back to our customers," Stallings said.

"We basically demolished the existing material. I like to think about it as a community restoration project," he added.

County Councilman David Marks thanked the company in a statement on Tuesday.

"I would like to thank Shannon Stallings and all those affiliated with Chesapeake Landscape Contractors for beautifying this traffic circle. During these difficult economic times, we need these type of partnerships to make things happen," he stated. "I would also like to acknowledge local resident William Lutostanski, Jr., for contacting Chesapeake Landscape Contractors and setting this donation into motion."

Looks very nice and it will be even better once the re-paving of the circle is completed. On the downside, if you look closely you will see in the picture that the large electrical box has been vandalized once again by some d**che bag. Its impossible to keep things looking nice around PH with some of the trash that we have living amongst us.

How long will it be before someone drives through the middle of it?

If you go further up Seven Courts, someone hit a lightpost too. The amount of trash spreading into our quiet, peaceful neighborhoods is slowly increasing.
