Per McHale Landscape Design:

Upper Marlboro, MD (January 5, 2022)— On the heels of celebrating its 40th anniversary, McHale Landscape Design, one of the region’s most award-winning, longstanding residential landscape architecture and design-build firms, today announces its strategic acquisition of Hawkins Landscape Service, a high-end, residential design/build and estate gardening firm in the DC metro region. A definitive purchase agreement was finalized on January 4, 2022.

Founded by Bob Hawkins, a veteran of the landscape industry for more than three decades, Hawkins Landscape Service creates memorable outdoor living spaces by uniting architecture and landscape design, quality installation, renovation, and meticulously managed grounds throughout the DC region.

“We are thrilled to welcome the Hawkins Landscape Service team into the McHale family,” said Keith Bowman, Director of Business Development at McHale Landscape Design. “The agreement aligns with our long-term vision for growth—for further market share in a region we have a presence, as well as opportunities for McHale associates to grow and develop their careers with a leader in residential estate gardening throughout the greater DC region.”

The partnership combines two of the most trusted residential landscape companies in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. McHale currently runs five locations throughout the DC region: Upper Marlboro, Annapolis, McLean, Easton, and Clarksburg. The firm has completed over 400 award-winning landscapes across farms, estates, waterfront sanctuaries, and private homes, with the most memorable leveraging unparalleled horticultural expertise and exquisite masonry.

“McHale Landscape Design shares our passion for design, quality service delivery, customer satisfaction, and employee development,” said Bob Hawkins. “As such, we believe McHale is the best fit to carry on the Hawkins legacy and uphold my commitment to employees and clients for a seamless marriage of the two companies.”
