Richard J Rahm Jr. with Jordan R. Rahm

The Rahm's originally entered the landscape industry in the early 1960s, when Richard J. Rahm Sr., a Draftsman by trade, grew and sold bluegrass sod for additional income on the family farm, located in Creve Coeur, Missouri.

 

In 1974 Richard J. Rahm Jr. founded Rahm Landscaping Co. Inc. and started a small nursery on the same family farm. In 1987, Richard Rahm Jr. bought a small section of property in Glencoe, Missouri, establishing a tree farm through the 1990s and the current day.

 

Since 2012, Richard Jr. has been joined by his son Jordan, a nurseryman and certified Garden Designer.

 

Throughout the years Rahm Landscaping has been blessed with many wonderful clients and projects. Ranging from large quantity, large caliper tree planting for land developers and estate owners to park maintenance for local Cities, small lake construction, and residential landscape, garden design, and installation projects. With over 60 years in the landscape industry, you can feel confident choosing Rahm Landscaping for your project.

Frequently asked questions:

- What will it cost to landscape my home?   A landscape designed and installed can cost anywhere from $1,500 to well over $50,000.  A good rule of thumb is to plan to spend 2% to 5% of the value of your home.   

- When can I transplant my tree or shrub?   Depending on the tree or shrub, Early spring, and late fall are ideal times, while the tree/shrub is dormant and temperatures are cool. 

- When is the best time to plant?   Fall and spring are the ideal times to plant although, successful planting can be done all year round as long as the ground is not frozen. 
 
- Do you offer Retaining wall & Patio Construction?  No, the only hardscaping we will install are natural stone walls that are part of a landscape design.

- Do you offer Snow Removal?   No. Due to the decline in snow events in the St. Louis area, we no longer offer snow removal services. 

- How often, how much, and when should I water?   For lawn areas, turf grass should be watered once to twice a week putting down an equivalent of 1" of rainfall. Newly planted trees and shrubs should likewise be watered once to twice a week, depending on site conditions. It is recommended to apply 10 gallons of water for every 1" of trunk diameter. The same applies to established trees and shrubs during drought conditions. Watering should be done early in the morning, allowing turf and plant foliage to dry before nightfall, to prevent the increased risk of fungal disease.
