Featured Reviews for Landscape Architects and Designers in Belmont, MA
Melissa MacDonald, Landscape Architect
Landscape Architects and Designers in Belmont, MA
"Melissa MacDonald is a very talented and professional Landscape Architect. My husband and I are both architects and we had been trying to design the landscape for our home in the heart of historic Lexington MA. for a year. When we asked Melissa to help us, she promptly delivered a design that was sensitive to the traditional setting of Lexington's historic district and satisfied our spatial requests. The hard-scape is elegant and we have been enjoying the sequence of blooming plants since May. I am thrilled with Melissa's design and with her service. She worked seamlessly with the contractor who highly respected her expertise. I am happy to write this review because I have been recommending her to my clients and to my friends who have been admiring her work as well."

Elizabeth Gourley Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Belmont, MA
"She's like a painter with plants. With a superb knowledge of natives. I loved her presentation and her education of us--complete with visuals--on all that she wanted to do with plants. She has a clean, modern sensibility, but with a friendly, approachable, style, even good humor in the work. She's willing to take ideas and bring them to fruition--we came prepared with ideas and she showed us how to make them work. And then, she brought her own smart vision. Vision. That's what she's got. And really knows her plants. It's worth noting that she has so much talent. With this kind of talent, she could be impossible to work with, but she is THE LOVELIEST human being to be around. A great, attentive listener, with a strong desire to please. She works her hiney off, meets deadlines, is on top of details, just overall, committed to satisfaction."

Moodscapes LLC
Landscape Architects and Designers in Belmont, MA
"Judy Lipscom Rubin, the owner, is a skilled and knowlegeable landscape designer and installer. She knows her plants, and how to take care of them. I liked her plans and how they have evolved into a "vision" as the garden has matured. She has a sound ecology conscience and does not use poisons which harm the environment. Her crew is pleasant to have around and hard working."

Kimberly Mercurio Landscape Architecture
Landscape Architects and Designers in Belmont, MA
"Working with Kimberly was extraordinary. KMLA provided several solutions before the final siting and design of the pool, pool house, and terraces. Watching our property be transformed was truly amazing and we could not be happier with the result."
- Suzanne Lucchesi
a Blade of Grass
Landscape Architects and Designers in Belmont, MA
"No one is better than Blade of Grass. Exceptional vision coupled with practical advice. Our backyard plan morphed from a simple "let's knock off the rotting deck" to a backyard redo replete with blue stone patio, field stone wall, irrigation system, tree removal and many new trees and plantings. The team worked hard under difficult conditions (no access for machinery, giant boulder to dig out), the job was done in a timely manner and the outcome surpassed my very high expectations. Tom and Pete were easy to work with, professional and fun. They listened to what we wanted and guided us on key plantings/trees. When a winter storm caused a tree to list heavily to one side, they came and replanted it - almost a year after the job. I am incredibly happy with our backyard transformation and highly recommend Blade."

Nilsen Landscape Design, LLC
Landscape Architects and Designers in Belmont, MA
"Andrea did the design, execution and ongoing maintenance of a master landscape plan for my Cambridge residence. The work was done on-time, on-budget and to a high degree of quality. The ongoing follow-up and maintenance has also been spectacular. In particular, I think Andrea is good at: 1. Collaboration: The final design was a combination of her ideas and my ideas. She had no problems listening and incorporating my thoughts. 2. Project Management: She is an on-time, on-budget type of person who proactively communicates what is going to happen when. I have never worked with a contractor/landscaper who is this good. 3. Great team: The people she assembled to do the work were top notch. All locals with great knowledge of the area (two of the contractors actually grew up in my neighborhood) as well as their craft. I would recommend Andrea to anyone who is serious about getting a good job done well."

Matthew Cunningham Landscape Design LLC
Landscape Architects and Designers in Belmont, MA
"We have worked with Matthew a number of times over the years, and each time I am amazed by his creativity, passion and professionalism. Our gardens compliment our house and our lifestyle perfectly and we constantly receive compliments on their beauty. Matthew listens to feedback and incorporates suggestions into his designs and then takes those ideas and brings them to a level beyond your wildest dreams. He is respectful of the land, passionate about plants and design, and wildly talented. He is a pleasure to work with, a consummate professional, and always available to ensure that the project is completed to his exacting standards. I cannot imagine ever choosing any other landscape architect to design an outdoor space for me and I recommend him without hesitation to anyone who is looking for a new design for their outdoor spaces."

Victoria D. Hibbard Landscape Architect LLC
Landscape Architects and Designers in Belmont, MA
"I hired Vicki last year to redesign and execute my backyard area which involved redesigning and moving a very long retaining wall, an intricate blue stone patio which Vicki broke up in certain areas with a beautiful pea stone. The Bluestone pattern was spectacular. I was expecting something very basic, but it was a very distinct pattern with stone on the diagonal and bordered along with a beautiful center stone. The space is awe inspiring now and everyone of my friends, guests, housemates have fallen in love with it. I can't thank Vicki enough for her attention to detail, diligence, and organization of the contractor. She is a " must hire" for your project. All the best, Robb Silva Brookline MA"

The Narrow Lane
Landscape Architects and Designers in Belmont, MA
"Description Of Work: The Narrow Lane, through Ron Goode, it's owner/operator and his team, performed various services for us, including 3 new paver walkways with cobblestone lining them, a new driveway, new sod in the front, new side and back lawns, new plantings, new retaining walls, two tree removals, large overgrown shrub removals, planting of several new trees and other plants, as well as fertilizing, leaf removal/Spring cleanup and some general landscape maintenance. Comments: It went great! Our main design and construction work required every part of our yard to be torn up, excavated, or otherwise touched with a shovel, mini-excavator, or other tool/piece of machinery and Ron worked hard to ensure that the disruptions to my family were minimal. He also listened to each request, made recommendations based on our budget, worked hard to get the estimate within our budget, and has produced a product that every neighbor has complemented! We love how it all turned out and have had several people ask if it is a new house! I highly recommend The Narrow Lane for not only landscape design and construction, but also maintenance. Ron will work hard to ensure that he gives you exactly what you want in a budget you can be happy with."

What does a landscape architect do?


The work of this outdoor professional includes most everything surrounding a home's exterior. A landscaping architect can even work with the home architect to choose the right spot for your Belmont, MA house. From there the Belmont landscaper will develop preliminary concepts for your front or backyard design based on individual needs including the climate and activities that will take place, as well as layouts and planting plans. Landscape architects will also design any structures or outbuildings that will be added to the space. Any grading changes that will be added to the yard are also the responsibility of the architect. This includes any drainage modifications. An engineer can also be responsible for these tasks, but licensed Massachusetts landscapers are fully capable. Like building architects, they will produce preliminary concept drawings as well as detailed construction documents and planting plans. Three-dimensional renderings and illustrative plans are all supplementary.

What does a landscape designer do?


A Belmont landscaping designer generally will have ecological, aesthetic and technical training, which helps them maximize the potential of your outdoor space. Keeping in mind both style and functionality, garden designers analyze your architecture and yard to produce a plan that may or may not include location and materials for walkways, patios, water features, fences, garden aspects and more. In addition, a landscaper in Belmont, MA will carefully assess your geographic region to choose plants, trees and flowers that will flourish naturally, as well as address concerns such as drainage, screening and soil conditions. Certain landscape designers only help with the planning portion, while some may deliver the plans and then oversee a hired landscaping contractor. Others — typically following a design-build approach — take care of both the design and all aspects of the landscape architecture and construction.

Before you hire a Massachusetts professional landscaper, consider the scope and emphasis of your outdoor project. Landscape architects, who typically hold advanced degrees in their field, are trained to develop comprehensive structural plans that include plants, hardscaping, water use, drainage and more. Landscape designers typically specialize in the aesthetic and horticultural, rather than structural, side of yard and garden planning. They might or might not have advanced training. Even within their fields, a garden designer may specialize in hardscape- or vegetation-focused designs. In some cases you might need to hire additional help to get the outdoor space you want. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of landscape architects & landscape designers: Landscape Contractors, Garden & Landscape Supplies, Tree Services, Gardeners, Lawn Care & Sprinklers, Decks, Patios & Outdoor Enclosures.

Questions to ask prospective landscapers in Belmont, MA:


  • Can you provide me with references?
  • How long have you been in the landscaping business?
  • What is your certification?
  • Do you have liability insurance?
  • How much do you charge, and what does that include?
  • What regions and climates are you skilled in?
  • Can you accommodate my special requests (such as ADA or LEED)?
  • What types of renderings will you produce?
  • What is your experience with similar projects?
  • When can you complete this project?
  • What do your services include?
  • Who will be working on the project design?
  • What happens when costs exceed budget, whether due to materials or labor pricing changes? What about changes made by the client or by the professionals — what kinds of situations would cause those costs to be incurred?
  • Can you provide me with a written estimate?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any important considerations or concerns that you know of or that might come up in the future with this project?
