When it comes to landscape design and installation, we’re nit-picky and we know it.

We handle the entire spectrum of your landscape design project, from conception to execution, because we want to make sure that things get done right. Our team of designers, stonemasons, horticulturists, irrigation and lighting technicians put an obsessive amount of thought and deliberation into every element of your landscape.

We’re always on the hunt for creative ways to make your yard the most coveted on the block and when we work on your project, you can count on us to go ‘all-in’—from start to finish. We love making designs come to life with every installation—we’re just wired that way.

Being in control of the entire process ultimately allows us to accurately forecast (and be accountable for) your project’s cost and timeline. This cuts down on the delays and surprises that occur when multiple contractors are working on one landscape. It also allows us to deal with inevitable hiccups quickly and seamlessly.

“This yard is a lot bigger than I remember it…”

That’s probably the number one thing we hear from our clients after we finish a landscape design and build project. No, we don’t hire three bulldozers to push back your property lines; rather, we carefully map out your space and figure out how to squeeze every last drop of utility out of it. Let’s face it, real estate in Boston comes at a premium. We want to help you maximize the use and value of your property.

We’re vehemently against “one size fits all” landscape designs.

Loving your yard is all about making the space really work for you—and that means something very different for everyone. We’ll plan your space so that it becomes a much-loved (and much-used) extension of your home that matches your existing home design and personality.

Our landscape design build projects start with a free, no strings attached initial consultation, where we’ll come to your property and talk about what you’re envisioning.

Our Clients' Words

“Land Design Associates has provided many of our clients with site work and landscaping services. In these collaborations difficult situations get creatively resolved and new and existing elements are brought together to give each project a sense of completion and accommodation to the nature of each site. Their work compliments the value of our work, and enhances the quality of the environment and experience of each project.”


“Spectacular, everyone loves the stonework. Our circular sitting area was especially complicated and the work was intensive. It is more beautiful than we envisioned. A huge plus with Land Design is that Jim Egan is on site every day to supervise and guide his crew.”


“Jim is a pleasure to work with. He is creative, responsive and a knowledgeable plant person. He shows up when he says he will, returns every phone call and delivers a beautiful finished product on schedule. His staff is hard working, courteous and conscientious.”


“Jim sat down with us, brainstormed and came up with several conceptually unique designs for our front and backyards.  His crew was extremely professional, courteous and capable.
