Shoreline Stabilization

We work alongside marine engineers to implement bio-engineering stabilization projects, restore salt marsh, install coir and sand-filled envelopes, and construct sturdy drift fence.

Ecological Restoration

We evaluate, restore and manage native plant communities and wildlife habitat. Through the duration of a three year program, we provide invasive species management, soil stabilization, restoration plantings, environmental monitoring, and naturalized area maintenance.

Environmental Design & Permitting

Restoration/Mitigation Design

We provide mitigation and restoration design services through the lens of landscape architecture and ecology to provide projects that are ecologically functional and aesthetically pleasing.

View Management Planning
We approach view management with long term solutions that preserve important vistas while minimizing annual maintenance.

Regulatory permitting
We guide our clients through the environmental permitting process and work with their project team to professionally represent their interests at public hearings.

Wetland Delineation
We provide wetland delineation services, if needed during the permitting process, to establish natural resource area boundaries and buffer zones.


Crawford Land Management (CLM) is a natural resource management company specializing in ecological restoration, coastal stabilization, and environmental permitting. CLM was founded in 2014 by Jen and Nick Crawford. In the four years since it’s inception, CLM has grown to be a recognized leader in the natural resource management field across Cape Cod. We are among a small handful of design/build companies that are recognized by Conservation Commissions throughout Cape Cod as a qualified contractor for ecological restoration projects due to our expertise and high-quality, environmentally responsible work product.

The majority of our current projects are for high-end residential clients, but over the past few years we have increased our client base to include municipalities, associations, and land trusts. Approximately eighty percent of our projects are for ecological restoration and view management, and the other twenty percent are coastal stabilization and construction projects. While our implementation staff execute projects to the highest standard, our office and design staff ensure the project design and planning takes into account the balance of client goals, pleasing aesthetic, and ecological integrity.

A unique aspect of our company is the direct oversight and implementation of the projects by company co-founder Nick Crawford.  He is in the field on a regular basis assisting and directing the implementation of our projects alongside our staff. This commitment to our work ensures that all projects are executed to the highest standard. CLM’s maintenance program in the season’s following initial implementation is second to none. It is the most important part of the project as it ensures the overall success from start to finish and protects our Client’s investment in their property.
