The Project

Dodger Stadium is the third oldest continually used Major League Baseball park, behind Fenway Park and Wrigley Field. In 1957, Dodger President Walter O'Malley teamed up with New York based civil engineer and architect Emil Praeger and Los Angeles based architect Edward Fickett to design the stadium with its uniquely Southern California-inspired modern style. Carved into the hillside of Chavez Ravine, Dodger Stadium offers stunning views of both downtown Los Angeles and the San Gabriel mountains. Upgrades to all aspects of the ballpark began after the 2012 baseball season, which included enhancement of the stadium's landscaping. Working in the areas surrounding both team stores and the concessions buildings near right and left fields, Pierre upgraded the irrigation system, amended nearly 12,000 square feet of soil, installed nearly 250 flats of ground cover and over 500 5-gallon and 15-gallon plants, and spread over 65 cubic yards of mulch. Pierre Landscape's partnership with PCL Construction made the historic ballpark's renovation a home run.
