An Ijamsville landscaping company will be able to make changes and improvements to its property after getting approval from the Frederick County Planning Commission.

The commission voted 7-0 Wednesday to approve a site plan for As You Like It Landscaping to allow the company to create office space and a caretaker's residence from a house on the property in the 4200 block of Ijamsville Road.

That building will occupy about an acre of the 12-acre property, while several sheds and a proposed 3,000-square-foot workshop building for the landscape contracting business will take up about 3.5 acres, according to a county planning document.

Customer traffic will be restricted, since the site isn't designed to serve as a retail facility, according to the document.
