I've both worked with David Bartsch Landscape Architecture as the installer for his clients landscapes, and have hired David to do designs. He is extremely knowledgeable about the genre of landscape architecture, contemporary construction processes & materials, and plants. David is very professional and serious about producing the best possible result for his clients. I would not hesitate to recommend his company to anyone looking to maximize the value and usability of their landscape.

Competent and friendly. Professional with experience and taste. Has great experience and know how to solve problems, especially when an unforeseen event was faced. I appreciate David's calm and confident manner.
I was hired by David Bartsch to fabricate an iron fence and arch for a small park in downtown Nantucket. David worked with me to facilitate the refining of the plans and logistics that come with any project. His design was clear and elegant, and joined the necessary historical concerns with a modern interpretation. He was instrumental in coordinating the several contractors involved and also with payment from the client. The project was successful and is an example of how, with a committed effort among professionals, a project with the necessary demands of town politics and community concerns can be realized successfully.

David was an asset in developing a plan for our back yard on Nantucket. He was knowledgable about the various species of flora and their ultimate success in such an environment. Services were timely, professional, and courteous.

We hired David Bartsch after clearing more than an acre of previously wooded property. Our intention was to create a "yard" out of the newly available grounds. After speaking with David, we discovered that with a bit of planning, we could easily transform the property into a purposeful, attractive landscape. With his help, we were able to make our 1.5 acres into a destination rather than cleared land. He thoughtfully explained how small changes in grade and minimal features create zones of use, which make a space more meaningful and useful. He was very efficient with time and resources, as well as familiar with many contractors which created many options in terms of scale and cost of certain features. We view hiring David Bartsch as a solid investment, as well as a good choice for our landscape design needs. A+
David Bartsch and I have worked on numerous projects together on Nantucket Island, he as the Landscape Architect and my company Nicholas Ferrantella Landscaping performing the landscape installations and maintenance. Founded in 1980, we have worked with many architects in the 33 years and David Bartsch is our favorite. His design of a small park on Nantucket Island for Nantucket’s Land Bank is brilliant and "Fair in the Main" has become a favorite place for people to stop and enjoy the peaceful garden and granite fountain. We are working with David on a project in Monomoy on the island now. Sincerely, Nicholas Ferrantella Owner
