Contemporary Landscape Design in Bristol, RI

This property and house underwent a complete renovation. Existing drainage and grading problems were fixed, then modular outdoor spaces such as the pool area, a rich lush lawn, an entertaining area for large gatherings under an allee of fragrant linden trees, and a pool house/guest apartment were installed. In phase one, a large planting of evergreen privacy perimeter plants and foundation plants were installed. Landscape lighting extends the use of the entire property into beautiful summer nights lounging by the pool. The two entry areas were re-designed and renovated to accommodate guest parking when the family is hosting a large gathering.

“We first engaged Land Design Associates in the early 2000’s for our 1.4 acre “antique” property in Milton, Massachusetts, on the recommendation of a good friend and landscape architect. Our home’s once-elegant gardens had long since gone into decline and there was an urgent need for infrastructure improvements on the property: hardscape/plazas, grading & drainage, stone pathways & stairs, fencing, exterior lighting, etc. The landscape, gardens, beds and trees, all required a serious overhaul: removal and replacement of declining/dead trees and shrubs, restoration of beds and extensive planting of new plant material. Jim Egan, and his crew at Land Design Associates tackled this large and multi-faceted project with enthusiasm and enormous skill. Every single aspect of the restoration and improvement of the grounds was performed thoughtfully, skillfully and professionally.

So when we purchased a property in Bristol, Rhode Island in 2018 in serious need of everything, and more, than Milton, we knew there was one company that was up to the task: Land Design Associates. In the intervening years, however, we discovered that LDA had gotten even better! Land Design has added state-of-the art landscape planning tools and numerous technological and equipment upgrades to their arsenal. To implement the benefits of these advances, Jim Egan has assembled an amazing team of professionals with skills that encompass all the disciplines of landscape art and improvement. As before, Land Design Associates accomplished all the infrastructure (hardscape, grading, drainage, electrical, pool decking, etc.), and all the landscape objectives (design, layout, removal/ planting, excavation/contouring, etc.) with the utmost ability. We felt as if the LDA could accomplish ANY task put before them; all done to perfection. We will enjoy our new outdoor environment for many years to come,”
