The owner, Kevin Spencer, graduated from the University of Maryland in 1976 with a degree in Horticulture and was recruited and went to work for a leading residential design build firm. Rising rapidly to the position of lead installer, Mr. Spencer was able to enjoy the responsibility and challenges of installing the choicest of this prestigious firms’ many residential design build landscapes, many of which included construction features such as swimming pools, tennis courts and stonework. After spending 9 productive years with them, he founded Creative Exteriors in 1986.

Initially a full service landscape planting and construction firm Creative Exteriors’ focus since 2001 is maintaining residential gardens in Maryland and Washington, D.C.. At the request of clients who were having difficulty finding a service oriented contractor to match their needs, we took our years of installation experience and opened our maintenance division in 2000. We mate this experience in installation with our gardening services.

We have unmatched expertise in the pruning of your landscape with a specialty in the pruning of English Boxwood. We hand prune each plant taking into account each plants’ natural shape and place in the landscape.

Mr. Spencer has designed and constructed many award winning water features. Extensive traveling and observation of mountain streams has aided his feel for natural stone water features, including waterfalls. Water brings serenity and peace to any garden setting and provides necessary water to the many songbirds that are attracted to your gardens. In addition, Mr. Spencer has built or consulted on waterfalls and ponds in many parts of the country.
