Inspired by the Cutting Edge



Our portfolio of work spans residential to commercial scale spaces from East to West Coast. We are humbled to generate such a wide breadth of work and continue to be influenced by each landscape and its relative community and structure.


Take a deeper look at some of our keystone projects.



































St. Louis Arch Grounds Renovation

Working with City Arch River since 2014, we continue to implement a full biological program for 140,000 yards of new manufactured soils as well as 30 acres of established turf and mature trees. Our work has also included the establishment and maintenance of 800 new allee trees that line the historic walks of the St. Louis Gateway Arch grounds.




































Harvard Business School

Working with the Harvard Business School, we are involved in the design and development of historic tree preservation programs and the outlining of future sustainability agendas for the prestigious academic entity.


This year our efforts will be focused on mature tree preservation and long term sustainability research and management.


Brooklyn Botanical Garden

Our team has had the pleasure of working on many key projects implemented by the garden over the last several years.

Projects have included the native flora garden where we had the opportunity to design the soil profiles for the space; profiles ranged from pine barren soils to meadow textures. The space was recognized with an award by the NY ASLA in 2015.


In addition, ELM has worked on the landscapes of the Children’s Garden and the newly opened wetland and riparian environment space.



































Central Park

Working with Central Park Conservancy, we continue to implement innovative initiatives across the park such as new natural meadow space development, cover cropping programs and mature tree management techniques focused on historic tree preservation.




































Houston, Texas

As we continue to expand, our work in the southern state has been a tremendous pleasure.


Together with Hermann Park Conservancy, we have implemented a sustainable program to educate and train staff on composting, compost tea brewing and application practices. The McGovern Centennial Gardens is now 100% organic and making great gains in sustainability and landscape development.


In addition to Hermann Park, we will be working with Memorial Park Conservancy to establish a large scale bio-recycling program. The efforts will be focused on creating a dynamic compost profile for the park’s Eastern Glades landscape. In addition we will be sourcing indigenous mycorrhizal fungi communities to apply back into the new park for mature tree restoration as well as new tree and landscape establishment.
