You dream. We listen.

Urbgardens is a landscape design build company in downtown Boston that specializes in designing and building in the urban landscape. Our company is located in Boston, so we understand the city and what will be successful in the landscape here. We design and build on all different levels, from major backyard renovations to roof deck gardens to planters. Whether you’re a working professional too busy to tend to your property, a young family looking to make your space “family friendly”, or a business owner looking to make your storefront more attractive, our goal is to collaborate with you to create a space that brings your vision to life.

We offer a wide range of services within our design build company. From design and installation that include patios, retaining walls, and fences, to custom roof decks. Whatever you need, we’ve got you covered. We also offer a wide range of seasonal maintenance services tailored to your unique property needs, from seasonal planters to snow removal. Our customer-focused professional team is always learning and working across disciplines to expand our knowledge, and is here to help. We customize it to you and your property, and we get it right. Even after the work is done, we’re there if you need us. We would love to work directly with you, but we also work with property managers, owners’ representatives, architects, and building contractors. We have a “high touch” business model—we always consider your needs first.

Our team consists of an array of landscape professionals with diverse backgrounds and experience in landscape design, construction and installation. We believe in working together to build the best possible landscapes for our clients. Please read more below about our individual team members.
