Shearon Environmental Design Co. Inc. is leading the way in “keeping remembrance alive” through design, construction and care of Memorial Spaces and Gardens – forever honoring the service, courage and ultimate sacrifices of our fellow Americans.


Outdoor gathering areas have always been invested with meaning, and among the most revered and heavily visited are those spaces set aside for the commemoration of human achievement and sacrifice. Throughout the nation and the world we turn to monuments and memorial parks to honor our military. In these serene and beautiful settings we focus and reflect on the tremendous gift our American servicemen and servicewomen give us when they uphold their vow to protect and defend our country and our freedoms.

As long-time members of Delaware Valley communities, the leaders & workers of Shearon Environmental Design have built relationships with local government. In our 45 years we have been entrusted with municipal projects due to our work ethic of Quality, Consistency & Service. We’re ready to leverage our experience, value-engineering and diligence to the unique challenges presented by creation of a commemorative site.

Starting with the collaborative design work of our Certified Landscape Architects and the expertise of our nursery team through the safe, precise work of our OSHA-certified crew and the proactive care of our maintenance technicians, we will bring our best to the sacred work at hand.

Contact us today for more information on this meaningful pursuit of national dutiful regard. You can contact our Corporate Office in Plymouth Meeting, PA at 610.828.5488.

Late Fall Important Drought Alert

Fall Rain Shortage Tough On Landscape Plants

You know that watering is a vital part of keeping your landscape healthy in the hot summer months, but did you know why it’s also very important in the fall? During the first 3 quarters of this year we have had above-average rainfall conditions. The months of March, April, June and July the greater Philadelphia area has averaged approximately 5″ over normal rainfall.


As we have moved into the fall months, the script has been flipped. This abrupt drop in rainfall can have a drastic effect on the health of your plants both in the short term and over the long haul. At a minimum, plants that are stressed in the fall will be slower to respond with new growth in the spring.

Look for these at-risk plants on your property.

Be Wise - Fertilize!

Plants that are stressed due to lack of water in the fall will not only drop foliage prematurely, but are likely to suffer from crown dieback in the spring, and be more susceptible to insects and disease the following year.

Fall fertilization is also key for plant care during drought-like conditions. Our experts will evaluate your plantings and utilize a wide range of products from all-organic to quick-acting remedies. Avoid costly, time-consuming rejuvenation projects later by stabilizing your plants now.
