A fiery backyard landscape design in Medfield, MA


In transforming the backyard of this Medfield residence, the primary objective was to craft an intimate and functional outdoor haven that could cater to the diverse needs of the entire family. Envisioning a space that seamlessly blended relaxation, culinary delights, and entertainment, the homeowners sought to create an environment where cherished moments could unfold.

Central to this landscape’s architectural design is the thoughtfully constructed bluestone patio, a foundation for the various outdoor “rooms” that now define the space. This multi-faceted retreat features strategically placed stone sitting walls, providing both functional seating and aesthetic appeal. At the heart of the arrangement stands a gas fire pit, becoming a magnetic focal point for family gatherings and an inviting source of warmth during cooler evenings.

To satisfy the family’s culinary desires, an outdoor kitchen grill island was seamlessly integrated into the landscape. Crafted by our masons in stone, this culinary hub not only caters to the practicalities of grilling but also contributes to the overall aesthetic cohesion of the outdoor space. Now, cooking has become a communal experience, with the tantalizing aromas of meals sizzling on the grill wafting through the air.

In the spirit of fostering a harmonious connection with nature, an array of flora envelops the scene. A lush lawn, equipped with a sprinkler irrigation system, serves as a dynamic playground for the children, surrounded by a selection of vibrant trees and shrubs. These not only add a splash of color but also act as natural screens, providing both visual interest and enhancing the family’s sense of privacy.

Delving into the plant palette, the landscape showcases a thoughtful assortment of trees, including birch, pine, blue spruce, sweetbay magnolia, and dogwoods. Complementing these are shrubs such as azaleas, summersweet, shrub roses, and rhododendron, creating a rich tapestry of textures and hues. The inclusion of fragrant plants, like daylilies, salvia, and sedum, adds an olfactory dimension, heightening the sensory experience of the garden.

As day turns to night, the outdoor lighting system comes into play, casting a warm and welcoming glow reminiscent of a moonlit evening. The careful balance ensures an inviting ambiance without overpowering the natural beauty of the surroundings.

What was once a blank canvas has now transformed into a series of thoughtfully designed outdoor rooms. This Medfield residence is no longer just a house; it is a haven where the family comes together, forging cherished memories around the fire, at the dining table, and amidst the beauty of their private landscape.

“We have been lucky to have worked with the team at Land Design on multiple projects.Our yard started off as a “homeowners’ special” and in a phased multi year approach has been transformed into a fantastic outdoor room.With LDA we were able to walk through scenarios and options until we hit on an aesthetic and budget that was spot on.The on-site team was always professional and accessible, concerns were immediately addressed and it was a pleasure to have them on site.With the latest addition of a blue stone patio with built in grill and multiple fire features we have a space that is exciting and feels magazine worthy. Now it is a blast having folks over, whether for a party or just hanging out. We couldn’t be happier!”
