Boston Landscape Design Guide (Designers)

February 23, 2009

So my little design firm (Greayer Design Associates) is based here in New England just outside of Boston, but in compiling a list of Boston landscape design resources, I would be completely remiss if I didn’t mention some of the other great design businesses in the area.   I am a firm believer that like there is a partner for everyone, a home for everyone, there is a designer for everyone.  Client- designer relationships, particularly in residential work, are so important, and if it isn’t a good match it will be torture for everyone.   It takes some time and maturity in the business, I think, to be able to see this truth and actually say to a potential client that perhaps this isn’t a good match.  But being able to say…”Maybe you should call…. they can do a really great job” is a good karma way of building a business that I rely on.

Anyway, my company does great work, (here a few samples)   but there are some other really great garden design teams in the Boston area; people that I really admire and who really excel in particular areas.  Here is some their best too.

Gregory Lombardi – I think if I were to hire some one other than myself for my (imaginary) city garden, it would be Greg.  His work is luxurious, and classic, always well executed and refined.

C2 Studio – C2 is so talented.  They have the ability to pare that I do not.  If you are interested in modern uncluttered but challenging and interesting designs, they are who you seek.

Zen Associates is Asian inspired but never theme-y. Zen is who I would hire for my current property, they have an absolute mastery of refining nature just enough to celebrate it but not so much that it seems overly contrived or cultivated. I think this style would be perfect for the rustic woodsy setting of my current home.
