Premium Landscape Design and Construction Throughout Eastern MA

Solving problems and transforming your property into a gorgeous and functional landscape is our #1 priority at Horticultural Concepts. We want to build what works best for your specific needs, whether that’s entertaining guests or relaxing with your loved one. Since 1982, Mike Walsh and the HC team have worked with thousands of clients to develop a vision for each and make it a reality. From amazing decks and patios to exquisitely designed gardens, Horticultural Concepts is the best choice!

We work in a wide range of styles from formal, and structured (including lots of “hardscape”; walkways, patios, decks, and walls) to informal and naturalistic that are very plant-intensive with gardens and trees (“softscape”). Zen Japanese, Contemporary, European Traditional, Bold Romantic and transitional styles. They will find what’s best for you. Please have a look below to see a few of the hundreds of projects we’ve done for our clients over the last decades. Our suggestions for you will be unique and may include some of these ideas or maybe something completely different. Enjoy!

This Cape has a surprise. The traditional façade conceals dramatic views to a hidden lake seen from terraced decks and patios. This lush landscape with an efficient, economical, partial  outdoor kitchen are is ideal for entertaining dozens of guests or quiet dinners for two.

Urban Secret Garden in Eastern MA

Urban Secret Garden, MILTON MA

You must see this to believe it. Small becomes large, barren becomes lush, and exposed becomes private. The most exquisite gardens can emerge from the emptiest of spaces with the right touch. This owner frequently receives compliments for the exterior of her garden from passers-by. Only a select few get to see the lush interiors.

A Little Bit Zen in Eastern MA

A Little Bit Zen, Duxbury MA

A home in the woods offers an opportunity for great privacy and openness. It is further enhanced when the exterior spaces are close to a very large window. Busy lives require restfulness. The element of water, a bridge, rocks, and a tree strike a meditative tone inside and out.

Suburban Cool with a Pool in Eastern MA

Suburban Cool with a Pool, Braintree mA

An average suburban mid-century ranch takes on new life and drama. Statuesque trees and mass plantings in front give the signal that this is something special. The private backyard pool in a small space makes this home a family destination and joy in all seasons with great views from the interior. This has matured gracefully in a few years into a very low-maintenance landscape.

Suburban Extraordinary in Eastern MA

Suburban Extraordinary, Hingham MA

This average suburban home on a seemingly ordinary lot is now a dramatic rendering of a gorgeous front yard and entrance with an incredibly unique and private backyard. Sweeping walls, two decks and trees for shade save make this yard a winner! It’s an amazing transformation.


New England Lanai, Hingham MA

After a trip to Hawaii, this couple brought home an idea. They wanted to have a lanai of their own here in Newton. But they only had a small, ugly public space to work with at their condominium home with difficult permitting and setback limitations. This incredibly useful and beautiful landscape is now theirs. They even have winter use of a heated spa to ease arthritis along with colorful and functional entertaining spaces (with an outdoor kitchen and big screen monitor) that they use regularly in the summer at game time or for movie nights.

New England Classic in Eastern MA

New England Classic, Reading MA

A previously boring and awkward backyard is transformed into a delightful, entertaining space with multiple levels, stone walls, classic brick patio, and lots of trees and shrubs for privacy and low maintenance. The place for celebrating weddings, family and friends. It’s now a popular and sought-after destination for many in the family circles.
