Introduction: Prior to starting up ‘Environmental Landscape Services’ I have over a decade of experience in Land Management and working towards my Master Gardener Certificate. Throughout my career I have acquired a BSc in Land Management and a MSc in Forestry- from the University of Aberdeen. I have worked in Ireland, England, Scotland and the U.S. for some of the largest landscaping companies and municipalities -such as Jersey City DPW and the MoD. ELS is a small company (we like being small), that focuses on the customer and not how many jobs we can complete in a day. We work with our customers on design ideas, tree/shrub species choice, fencing ideas etc. For us we focus on listening to the customer and producing high quality work. Since ELS has been in business we have carried out various landscaping, fencing and land clearance projects... along with much more: Invasive Species Removal - Japanese Knot Weed & Bamboo removal. Land Clearance Work. Residential Road/service track construction. Fencing. Sod installation. Decking Land Management- plowing, disking, Spraying. Tree Removals- pruning, stump grinding. Campsite creation. Limited Liability Insurance.

Outdoor Landscaping and Design

Ezra did a great job on a corner garden in the front of my home. He’s very knowledgeable and had great advice on a variety of trees and plants that would look best on my property. He designed the layout and it came out absolutely beautiful. He’s professional and dedicated, we will be using for other projects soon.

Fence and Gate Installation

Ezra and team are the best landscapers in the area with multiple talents including exterior repairs, fence installation and deck repairs. He came punctually and completed all the work flawlessly. He is a great person to work with and very responsive! I am looking forward to working with him again. Great value! Great work!

Fence and Gate Installation

We asked for a fence in the yard. It is beautiful. And was done in a single day at a very reasonable price. Absolutely first rate. You can’t go wrong!

I love how ELS transformed our stubborn rocky hillside! We had no idea what we wanted for this area but Ezra came in with a plan and a creative way to turn the front of our house from drab to fab!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Depending on the job and materials we do require a percentage of payment upfront for materials. Generally this isn’t an issue and customers are happy to have the materials delivered to their property if necessary.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Generally we communicate via cell. If the scope of work is something ELS can help with we then call out to get a closer look and formulate an estimate.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    BSc in Land Management & a MSc in Forestry.
