Featured Reviews for Landscape Architects and Designers in Milton, MA
a Blade of Grass
Landscape Architects and Designers in Milton, 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."

M.A. Desjardins Landscape Architecture
Landscape Architects and Designers in Milton, MA
"We hired Melissa to draw up landscaping plans for a garage re-build project. We needed plans for the hardscaping of new stairs and walkways leading from the street and garage to our house, as well as a landscaping/ planting plan. Melissa took on a difficult project, as we are on a hill with complicated grading issues. She was totally up for the task! She developed a plan, beautiful drawings, a budget outline, and contractor bid documents all within a short time frame, as we were late to realize the scope of what we needed. She met with us and explained everything. She is a true professional and a very nice person to work with. She always responded promptly to any extra requests, like dealing with the city of Boston Public Works Department about a new-curb cut application. FYI, our project took about a year to get permit approval in Boston, which is ridiculous, but unfortunately not unusual. We now expect to start the demolition this August 2017, so that's why there are no images. I will upload some once the landscaping is done. I whole-heartedly recommend M. A. Desjardins Landscape Architecture! You are definitely getting your money's worth if you hire Melissa. I am updating my review posted June 2016. The project was finally completed this spring, 2018, after many delays (not due to Melissa, as she was not contracted to do project management). An important note to add was Melissa's level-head and commitment through it all. After the concrete pourers did not follow the driveway plans and missed the stone paving details that were required through the City's Planning office, Melissa suggested we hold off on sawcutting and removing those concrete sections, which may have compromised the remainder of the concrete, until the Building Inspection came to review it. In the end, we were not required to remove the concrete, which saved us time and money by not needing to install that stone paving detail. I am also finally posting some pictures!"

Melissa MacDonald, Landscape Architect
Landscape Architects and Designers in Milton, 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."

Seoane Landscape Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Milton, MA
"Seoane Landscape Design was hired to build an outdoor patio, kitchen, fireplace, and water feature in a relatively small outdoor space. They spent a considerable amount of time listening to our ideas and goals for the project before coming up with a elegant design that was both consistent with our vision and within our predetermined budget. We also talked with several other potential contractors but chose Seoane because of their reputation for excellent craftsmanship, ability to meet deadlines, and outstanding customer service. Seoane lived up to their reputation in every way. During the project phase, they were very responsive to questions that arose along the way, coordinated effectively with other involved professionals (plumbing, electrical, irrigation), and maintained an organized, safe work area. When we made a few adjustments to the plan mid project, they happily accommodated, showcasing their extensive knowledge when thinking through the technical implications, and still completed the project on time. They also treated our project as if it was being built for a family member, examining the quality of the work performed each day and making enhancements where needed to ensure it met their high standards. We loved the outcome as well as the experience and would use Seoane again without question. We highly recommend Seoane to anyone looking for an extremely competent, professional, and reliable contractor for their outdoor landscaping or masonry project."

Skyline Landscapes, LLC.
Landscape Architects and Designers in Milton, MA
"Our experience with landscape designers at our previous homes had been consistently disappointing. How refreshingly different it has been working with Brendan, Matt, and Kara, the amazing team of professionals at Skyline Landscape! Their level of expertise, quality of work, and professionalism has far exceeded that of any landscape designers we have ever come across. They were a complete pleasure to work with at every step of the process! They each have impressive training, certifications, and experience, which complement each other. This gave us complete confidence in their opinions and suggestions for stopping erosion and beautifying the slope along the side of our home and our entire yard. Matt and Brendan, the founding partners, responded quickly to my initial contact and to all subsequent calls and emails. They came exactly on time, every time, which is a feat in itself in the city of Boston. After assessing the terrain and yard, they focused on listening to our goals and vision for the area. They offered ideas and suggestions and asked questions to determine our personal preferences of plant types, color schemes, etc. That step was very important to me, and I was happy to email them a list of my all-time favorites. Within a very short time, Kara, their extremely talented landscape architect, produced a detailed diagram redesigning our entire yard, that absolutely took our breath away! She incorporated all of our favorites as well as some of her own, in a layout that was artistic, unique, and beautiful! She sent us numerous photos of trees and shrubs from which we could choose, to fine-tune her original diagram and assure we would love the final product. On the day of installation, Kara, Brendan, and Matt were all present to facilitate the placement and planting of several hundred grasses, trees, shrubs and flowers. Their entire team and crew worked efficiently and extremely courteously – They were a pleasure to have at our home. Skyline Landscape’s pricing was very reasonable, and the completed project is even more beautiful than we had imagined it could be! The before and after photos are something to behold. The slope that once had a rusty, broken fence, weeds, and patches of dirt eroding onto the sidewalk below has been transformed by eye-catching rows of Muhly and fountain grasses and beautiful fencing. The nondescript, unhealthy shrubs in the front of the house have been replaced by willowy Tartarian dogwoods, daisies, hydrangeas, and a weeping redbud tree that bring color and vibrancy to the area. Our new outdoor environment brings us immeasurable pleasure every day, thanks to the meticulous care and immense talent of the Skyline Landscape professionals."

Nilsen Landscape Design, LLC
Landscape Architects and Designers in Milton, 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."

Jacalyn Gould Landscape Architect
Landscape Architects and Designers in Milton, MA
"We hired Jackie to make a very ugly back yard into a space we would love and she did. She used her expertise to tackle a project with multiple grading and structural issues. Besides having strong creative talents, she also is extremely flexible and accomodating to work with, making changes as needed and being sensitive to the clients concerns (financial and otherwise) while always keeping an eye towards the integrity of her project. She develops very detailed plans , picks contractors that she respects and follows the project through to completion remaining dedicated to the needs of her clients even in areas that should/might be the contractors. We are thrilled with our new living space and highly recommend Jacalyn Gould as a Landscape Architect."

Michael D'Angelo Landscape Architecture LLC
Landscape Architects and Designers in Milton, MA
"Just had Michael complete our patio space, and he did an exellecent job. We could not be happier with the outcome. From the design process to his level of quality expectations and design esthetic to the contractors recommended to managing any issues to the follow-up and care he put in to be sure we got what was expected, Michael was phenominal. We now have an oasis in the midde of the city thanks to Michael!"

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 Milton, MA house. From there the Milton 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 Milton 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 Milton, 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.

  • 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?
