Annapolis, MD April 7, 2011 –

Commercial landscape firm E-Landscape Specialty Solutions of Davidsonville, Maryland recently
completed work on the installation of a new landscape at Anne Arundel Medical Center’s expanded
emergency room and new pediatric ER. The expansion at AAMC, intended to improve patient care,
includes two waiting rooms, greeter/reception, eight triage bays, blood draw stations, and new
treatment rooms.

The project was also part of a larger effort by AAMC to become the first Maryland Hospital to be LEED
Certified by the U.S. Green Building Council. The project’s General Contractor, Baltimore-based Whiting
Turner, along with Architect C.R. Goodman Associates and Landscape Architect The Faux Group, kept
green features in mind during design and construction and must achieve rigorous follow up in assuring
all the specified materials are documented appropriately throughout construction in order to meet LEED
Certification requirements.

E-Landscape was selected to install many of the hard- and softscape elements designed by The Faux
Group, including installing modular pavers, vehicular bollards, landscape planting, and topsoil, and
carrying out forest enhancement. “We knew we wanted this job more than most the minute the plans
hit our desk,” explained E-Landscape President Eric Drenner. “The opportunity to work with Whiting
Turner on a large scale project just minutes from our office was too good to pass on. We made sure our
pencils were sharp on bid day and won the job.”
