Bellingham Part 2: Landscape Improvements Elevate Curb Appeal at Condo Complex

If you missed Part 1 of our Bellingham project, you can read it here. To summarize, a Bellingham condo complex suffered water damage due to poor exterior waterproofing materials and lack of drainage infrastructure. The condo owner hired MacKay Landscape Services to design and install drainage improvements and renovate the property’s landscaping, while the complex was fully-occupied with tenants.
