About Us


For over 30 years, ELA has been creating stunning resort-quality landscapes right here in Southeastern Pennsylvania and Central New Jersey neighborhoods. We take great satisfaction in the craftsmanship we deliver, but also in the experiences our spaces provide for homeowners.

Creating five-star, resort–like landscapes is also about the level of service you can expect from our staff. When you use ELA, you’re working with a highly professional, people-oriented company that aims to please. From the initial call with one of our sales/design reps, to the crew member that sweeps up your drive at the end of the day, we know your experience will be first rate.



We couldn't be happier.

“We've had several projects on my property and Keith and his team have always impressed my wife and I with his ideas, knowledge and sound advice. Quality workmanship and respect for our property have always been incorporated since day one. Highly recommended!"

Because of his artistic vision and strong work ethic, over the last five years he has been exposed to multi million dollar residential estates to humble abodes. Alex specialized in creating distinctive designs that connect landform and architecture, blending house and gardens with understated elegance and a harmony of textures, color and form.

Karen Clendaniel
Nursery Manager/Home Services

Karen's passion for plants began back in high school starting with a vo-tech curriculum in Horticulture. Growing up in an "all military" family, she knew that her path in life was different then her siblings. She lived all over the country and overseas including West Germany and Tripoli, Libya when she was young. In 1981 she came to the Doylestown area from Lancaster to pursue her BS degree in Landscape Design. In a career that has spanned more then 30 years, she has managed greenhouses, garden centers and nurseries. Ask her about bonsai, orchids, tropical foliage, annuals/perennials, trees and shrubs and you will see that her knowledge is extensive. With so many aspects of Horticulture, she prefers to pass on her knowledge and expertise to her customers to help them with their landscape needs.

We believe in a beautiful future
