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 the late 1960's Richard J. Rahm Jr. founded Rahm Gardening later changing to Rahm Landscaping Co.Inc. in 1974. After years of successful business, Richard Jr. 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 current day.


Since then, Richard has been joined by his son Jordan R. Rahm, 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 complex landscape, garden design, and installation.
