EISLER LANDSCAPES – Green Rooftops and Sustainability

Founded in 1926, Eisler Nurseries has evolved into one of the region’s foremost production nursery and landscape installation firms now called Eisler Landscapes. As a WBE landscaping company, they have worked with a number of Pittsburgh’s blue list clients and transitioned the firm into commercial landscape construction with strong emphasis on green infrastructure.

Over the course of the past number of years, Eisler Landscapes has evolved into a modern company with a dedicated fleet of the latest equipment, an in-house design team and horticulture, landscaping and construction experts, and 250 acres of nurseries.

Eisler Landscapes is popular with institutions such as the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University as they integrate green infrastructure into their building projects. Amenities with green roofs, outdoor planter’s plazas, roof top gardens combined with outdoor seating and living areas utilize the best management practices for managing storm water run-offs.

The company has long standing employees that have grown with the company. With a staff of horticulturists and landscape professionals, the organization has the resources for all sizes of projects.

Projects in both residential and commercial cross over between manpower, skills and equipment. By having state-of-the-art equipment and skilled staff, it saves the client time and money. Eisler Landscapes bring great value to the table for their customers.

Some recent project highlights:

• Green Roof and David Lawrence Convention Center – high profile green roof.
• East Liberty Town Square – green infrastructure solutions like rain gardens were used
• Eden Hall Campus of Chatham University– greenest college campus in the world
• Green Roof Carnegie Mellon University – Scott Hall project
