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.
