Former Running Back, Eddie George, Builds Landscape Architecture Business

Eddie George is a former NFL running back who joined the Houston Oilers in 1996 and stayed with the team for seven years, long enough to turn into the Tennessee Oilers and then the Tennessee Titans. He then served for one season with the Dallas Cowboys in 2004 before retiring.

After leaving the gridiron behind, George founded the EDGE Group, a landscape architecture and design firm.
In 2003, NFL All-Pro, Heisman Trophy winner and Ohio State University landscape architecture graduate Eddie George and a team of experienced professionals founded EDGE in Columbus, Ohio.

Their Nashville, Tennessee office opened in 2005 and the Toledo, Ohio office followed in 2008. Their three locations have allowed us to develop a regional market expertise across the Midwest and the South while building a national reputation through our collaborative partnerships.

According to George,”At EDGE, we look for every opportunity to create economically, socially and environmentally impactful solutions while implementing thoughtful planning and purposeful design. Our professionals provide design solutions delivered within budget and on schedule to architects, engineers, corporate clients, private developers, private and non-profit institutions, public agencies and municipalities in markets across the United States. Regardless of a project’s scope or size, we seek to transform environments through the application of the firm’s core P.L.A.C.E. Principles.”

George was also a judge on “American Dream Builders” realty show.

“You can make a room look fabulous, but if you are in there for about five minutes and you notice all of the small things that are wrong, it can go south really fast,” George said. “One of the things that I’ve learned on this show is how to truly go into a space and gauge it for what it is and how much thoughtfulness has gone into it and how the details really speak volumes down to the knobs that you use on the drawers or the counters.”
