Davidsonville, MD October 10, 2011 –

Davidsonville, Maryland-based commercial landscaping specialist E-Landscape Specialty Solutions
announced today that it has been awarded the contract to carry out commercial landscaping work for
the Cottages at Greenwood.

A residential community located in Jessup, Maryland, the Cottages at Greenwood harness inexpensive
construction strategies to produce dramatically lower utility bills (up to 70% less than standard homes).
The community and its homes boast on-site stormwater capture; permeable pavement for pathways
and driveways; recycled or recyclable building materials used in construction; and energy efficient
windows, doors and roof insulation in the homes.

This project again pairs E-Landscape with Hamel Builders, through the Hamel Green Construction
division. The scope of E-Landscape’s work on the project includes extensive reforestation, including
planting shade trees on the hot side of buildings to increase energy efficiency, the installation of
stepping stone walks, rain barrels, rain gardens and driveway shading.

“E-Landscape has maintained a strong relationship with Hamel Builders and we are thrilled to work with
them again on this project,“ commented Eric Drenner, E-Landscape’s President, “particularly since it is
our first project with their new Hamel Green division. This project is also a fantastic showcase for our
work on environmentally-friendly and LEED-seeking projects.”
