Resources for starting an ELM program

Resources for starting an ELM program

Once you are part of an Enhanced Landscape Maintenance (ELM) program, there are several potential steps/actions you can take to enact the landscape improvements/enhancements:

Source a contractor

Communities will have to hire a landscape contractor. Read tips for hiring a contractor. We use standardized documents to request companies to bid on contracted work.

Evaluate proposals

During the hiring process, communities can evaluate potential contractors based on a variety of criteria.

Do the work

Under the management of the ELM community, all landscape contractors hired to do work on public land are subject to City of Calgary Landscape Standards. Communities are responsible for ensuring their contractor meets these standards.

City of Calgary inspections

We will inspect enhancements and standard maintenance performed on public land to ensure landscape standards are being met.

Interactive map

Review the map to identify existing communities that participate in the ELM program. For more detailed information about participating communities and their programs, refer to local community webpages.
