McDonogh Middle School

Since last fall, Live Green has been working with Chesapeake Contracting Group at McDonogh, a top-ranking college preparatory school located on 800 pastoral acres in Owings Mills. Our work at McDonogh began with a full design and build of an irrigation system for the school’s new senior quad and Greenbaum Middle School building addition. The irrigation system will keep the Finney Senior Quad and the activity lawn healthy through each season.

We also lined the perimeter of the building with hundreds of shrubs, grasses, and perennials. A variety of freshly planted trees now dapple the campus – including hollies, dogwoods, flowering magnolias, and stand-out Japanese cherry trees. Live Green crews laid healthy turfgrass sod across the new building’s grounds and bioretention slopes, then assured its establishment over the following weeks. The dedicated and frequent post-installation maintenance of the new plants and grass has brightened the campus and will keep the property flourishing.

Teachers at McDonogh have educated students since 1873 on one of the most beautiful campuses in Maryland, and Live Green is proud to have another chance to bury its roots in the school’s lively, historical grounds.
