                            Recommendations from Your Neighbors

The Board of Directors, Lafayette Park Homeowners Association and residents who have
provided recommendations assume no liability for contractors, contractual arrangements, work
quality, etc. that may occur as a result of your relationship with the listed contractors.

                                             NOTES

    •   The names of contractors within each category are listed in the order in which the Board
        received recommendations; there is no priority listing.

    •   The year in parenthesis indicates the year the contractor was used by the neighbor who
        provided the recommendation. Since 2000, when the Contractors List was first issued,
        neighbors may have used listed contractors but have not updated the usage date.

   • Sandy Dew (landscape designer), Merrifield Garden Center (2000):
      703-560-6222
   • Several local nurseries (e.g., Meadows Farm and Merrifield Garden Center) will provide
      free landscaping consultation if you go to their place of business. Remember to call first,
      and bring measurements and photographs of your property if you need detailed advice.
      If you request a landscape designer to come to your home, there is a consultation fee
      (sometimes as low as $25), and for that fee you can ask questions, and receive oral
      advice and an informal landscape drawing—a design to suit your yard and specified
      needs. If you purchase a designated dollar amount for plants and/or installation, the
      original consultation fee will usually be deducted. Check with local nurseries for their
      current policies and pricing.

      consultants conduct workshops on a variety of topics. In past years workshops were held
      on landscape design for the back yards of townhouses. For more information, call the
      Green Springs Gardens Park at 703-642-5173.
   • Free or discounted materials (e.g. woodchips, mulch, seedlings) are often available from
      the county. Call the Fairfax County Cooperative Extension (703-324-8556) or the Mason
      District Supervisor’s Office (703-256-7717) for more information. Be sure and ask about
      the source and aging of the wood products to avoid the transmittal of diseases.
