About Us

Setting the standard.

Make your decision with confidence, knowing your outdoor spaces are in the right hands.

Full landscape contractors team

Managing a property in New England is a privilege, but one that comes with many challenges. Just like the professionals living and working here, you face significant pressure to keep your property living up to the region’s reputation.

Between the daily grind and keeping up with your tenant’s demands, you have no time to chase after your contractors. When it comes to your outdoor spaces, the only way to make it through is by partnering with a driven contractor who gets the job done right.

For the last 40 years, ND has set a higher standard of landscaping in Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire with award-winning designs and proven processes that result in an exceptional client experience.

When you choose ND to care for your property, you get access to in-house experts in every area of landscaping: from design to construction, property maintenance, horticultural care and snow and ice management.

The ND Promise

The ND Promise is our proprietary promise crafted specifically for property managers and owners. It’s in place to ensure you always receive the highest level of service available.

  • Know exactly what you’re getting into.

    ND takes the guesswork out of estimating by investing the necessary time to understand your needs. Your proposal will be detailed and written in plain language — so you know what you’re getting into before you sign the dotted line.

  • Say goodbye to hand-holding.

    Your dedicated account manager will oversee every aspect of your contract: making sure crews arrive on time, all work is completed as promised, and your site is clean and secure before we leave. You will always receive a weekly update with a list of work completed.

  • Get a hold of us when you need us.

    Your account manager will always return phone calls and emails promptly. If an emergency comes up, they will make themselves available right away.

  • Expect us to be proactive.

    Each season, you’ll be presented with a property improvement plan that outlines safety, functionality and aesthetic enhancements that can be made to your property. During the year, our crews will be your eyes and ears while on your property — spotting any potential issues before they become problems.

  • Partner with people who care.

    We believe that your satisfaction begins with the satisfaction of our team members. Our commitment to property and client care is company-wide. We continually reinvest in our employees — so you and your property get the best version of ourselves.

  • Partner with professionals.

    The crews on your property are trained and certified in horticulture and landscaping best practices, and everything they do is closely supervised by senior staff. Our management team also performs internal audits on a regular basis, so you can expect a consistent standard of work.

  • Full-service done right.

    From in-house architectural services, construction, maintenance and snow management, ND has you covered. In the rare case that we don’t have the expertise in house, we only work with highly trusted trade partners.
