“We worked with Jen to design and implement a project for a large urban yard, including retaining walls, built in Lynx grill, bluestone patio, play structure, fencing and large garden beds. Everything turned out beautifully, and Jen was a joy to work with. She takes feedback easily and is very collaborative, and manages her sub-contractors very well. We are very happy with how it turned out!”

“Jenn chooses well and melds plants to make my gardens vibrant and full of life and color.


“Jenn is in charge of creating my gardens each year.”

- Michael A.  – Newton, MA 2016

“We had overgrown plantings up against our condo buildings that were 30 years old and way out of control. Jennifer Nawada and her company presented us with great plans to upgrade our entire complex. We did the job over a two year period and it transformed our complex. It has been 3 years now and it all just looks better every year! Great price, great job and great company to deal with.”

- Mark L.  – Chestnut Hill, MA 2016

“Jen Nawada is the BEST. Not only is she creative and detail-oriented but she looks at the space holistically, taking into account the history of the house, where it's located, what's around it, how it will be used once it's done...and even the personalities of the family who live there. She created a Frederick Olmsted-inspired backyard sanctuary to match my 1860 Greek Revival home...who even thinks of landscaping at that level?! She's amazing and an absolute joy to work with. I can't recommend her highly enough.”

- Alexandra S. – Dedham, MA 2016

“I have already recommended Nawada Landscape Design to a friend, and I anticipate doing this many times over as everyone who sees our new front walkway compliments us on its aesthetics. In addition to giving us a beautiful design that help bring cohesion to our existing landscape, Jenn also gave the front of the house more presence and fixed a drainage issue that we didn't know could be corrected. She is a true professional as are the companies that she contracts to do the installation. I would jump at the chance to work with her again.”

- Michelle A. – Dedham, MA 2016

“Jennifer was fantastic to work with. she made the entire process of completely redesigning our backyard as painless as possible. Our backyard was a disaster and we had it completely overhauled. We had a new patio installed, sod laid down, our deck repainted, and part of our driveway torn up and part of our fence moved so that we could expand our backyard. She is great at communicating and letting you know when her crew will be there. We really don't know a lot about gardening, etc. and she was great at answering questions (even silly questions). I would work with her again in a heartbeat.”

- Megan S.  – Roslindale, MA 2015

We could not have asked for a better experience than working with Jennifer and her team on landscaping our yard. Jennifer was able to carry out our vision of our new yard, and also had a lot of great recommendations/ideas that we absolutely love. She was able to bring in new trees/plants to our yard, and make use of existing trees/plants by moving them to more appropriate areas. The work that was done was even better than we originally envisioned, and we could not have been happier with the work that was done. We cannot wait to enjoy the new yard this summer! -

- Ben M. – Concord, MA 2016

“After we did a major renovation on our home Jenn took an absolute blank slate of a yard and created a beautiful, colorful and pleasing-to-the-eye landscape design. Everything from the stone work to the selection of individual plants worked perfectly for our space. She spent a lot of time listening to our ideas and clearly incorporated them in her design. Her landscape plan made it very easy for us to execute the design over the course of the following year. The plantings have now been in for about three years and they continue to look great as they mature. We frequently get compliments on the yard from passersby as we work outside. I highly recommend Jenn for her landscape design work.”

- Eileen & Dave  – Beverly, MA 2011

“Jenn Nawada combines serious landscape design talent with a terrific attention to detail so that you get results you will love. She listens to what your needs are and creates landscaping that you like and, more important, that you can maintain. We wanted mostly/all native species in our garden; we wanted to have very little lawn and a ton of maintenance-free plantings; and we wanted to get as many semi-mature trees as we could afford in our budget. Jenn planned a front yard, side yard, back yard, and deck that met our requirements and that we love. Everything is simple and elegant without being outrageously expensive or fussy. And she designed a deck that we adore. You will feel lucky and happy if you can get Jenn to design your landscaping!”

- Cindy R. – Newton Centre, MA 2014

“Jennifer and her company Nawada Landscape Design is outstanding to work with, professional and creative. Jen has been flexible with us and our backyard landscaping needs for many years, as it has evolved. She taps into resources and personnel to produce beautiful results. The stone work for our outdoor kitchen and living spaces is unique, and landscape, fence and beds challenging on the slope. We even have a dog park separated by fencing. Every spring and fall Jen adds plantings, bulbs, and outdoor containers that are different every year sometimes tropical, at times succulent, shade and sun.

The most important part is that Jen is delightful to work also. Her casual personality makes the creative process fun. I trust her taste to be current, on trend and at the highest level. She is also sensitive and flexible to a budget. I highly recommend hiring Jennifer for all your needs.”

- Carol S.  – Brookline, MA 2015

“I highly recommend Nawada Landscape and design for quality design, materials and build and peace of mind knowing that someone cares about your project as much as you do and will do it right.

Jenn provided start to finish design and construction of my backyard paver patio and stone firepit. She listened to what I wanted and how I use my property and considered my budget before providing 3 different custom ideas - while other vendors seemed to be cookie cutter designs without much creativity..

Jenn is an excellent communicator and manager of timeline and cost. When a problem came up she communicated quickly and gave me options and her opinion. She didn't take short cuts and even things that looked fine to me she'd re-do because they weren't perfect (at no extra cost to me).

I see/use the patio every day since it's the main entrance to my house, and I love it!”

- Dave F.  – Dedham, MA 2016

“We were on the fence about leveling our backyard, then we met Jen , the owner of Nawada landscape design. Her vision for our yard was unbelievable. Her crew brought the project to completion. My yard now seems so much bigger. Such a nice person, I would highly recommend this company to all my friends, such a great experience. On a scale of 1-10 it's a 15 all day long.“

- Bill F. – West Roxbury, MA 2013

"I first began working with Jenn Nawada of Nawada Landscape Design, Inc. three years ago. My husband and I were looking to completely re-do our landscaping and irrigation system for our acre lot. Not only did we want a complete do-over of our property but we wanted to incorporate a rainwater harvesting system into our irrigation system. The project had a huge scope: multiple projects with integrated teams working together on landscaping, irrigation, rainwater system and roof/gutter work. 

"Jenn not only designed the entire landscaping project but she also managed the entire project ensuring a seamless transition between the different teams working on this project. Jenn was incredibly respectful of our interests in planting with local plants and rebuilding our little piece of our ecosystem. She was sensitive to how we use our yard in order to design space that was not only stunning to look at but fit our family's lifestyle and outdoor needs. I can't speak highly enough of the wonderful job Jenn did with this project. It was a great experience. 

"Since the project finished she has been terrific at following up on any issues that come up - be it plantings, irrigation or the rainwater system that I can't remember how to turn on sometimes. She has never once tried to sidestep a concern I have had. I would recommend Jenn Nawada unconditionally for any project big or small that you may have. She is hands down top in her field."

"Bravo! The landscape was transformed from ugly to lovely in just a few days. Your knowledge, vision and expertise are only exceeded by your patience, diligence and understanding. I look forward to working with you in the future as you continue to assist us in the ongoing beautification process."

- Residences of Chestnut Hill – Newton Center, MA June 2005 

"I have been meaning to write you a note forever to thank you a hundred times over for all your work. Things are starting to bloom, and we are so psyched to see all the plants in their full glory. Abby is just about big enough for her Nawada Landscape Design shirt...I think she will be wearing it this summer...thank you!."

- Becky "This Old House" – Bedford, MA May 2012

"Thank you for making the front of the house so beautiful. We all love it. Last night we all stood outside admiring your work and this morning my mom and I had coffee as the dog ran through the front yard and we decided it was perfect."

- L-A – Brookline, MA July 2011

"WE love our outdoor kitchen! Thank you so much for changing out all the
planters for my party. We had a glorious time as the weather broke and we were outside most of the time. I cut a lot of tulips for the buffet tables and everything looked great. Thank you so much. Will keep in touch."

- Carol – Brookline, MA May 2009

"Nawada Landscape Design really is as good as it gets. 

"We asked Jennifer to help us design a whole new landscape for a newly built house. She worked extremely well with the building contractors and the architect, pulling together a design that truly enhanced the site and building and working in a cooperative way as part of a larger project team. Jennifer was very responsive to my husband's desires for specific plants and collaborated with him actively so that the design fulfilled his dreams. At the same time, she met my needs and drew me into the process, even though I know almost nothing about plants and landscape design. I just wanted my home to look lovely. 

"It wasn't until a full year passed that I fully understood the good work that Jennifer had done. The written plans came to life when I saw the lovely spring pastels, bright hues of summer, and golden fall colors. There were new surprises as the seasons changed and new plants came to flower as others died back. Everything seemed to be placed to catch the eye from the street, from the walkways or from the window. The shape and heights of the plants softened the strict lines of the house, and made it more beautiful. A joy! 

"From a business perspective, I'd work with Nawada Landscape again. Everything was on budget and on schedule. A true professional!"

- Lynda S. – Newton, MA September 2012

"When I bought my house in Wellesley, the house I bought came with a small piece of property which had been neglected for years. I had no idea how to begin making my yard into the private sanctuary I envisioned. 

"From the start, Jennifer, listened carefully to my ideas, adding her expertise in recommending appropriate plants for my site. Jennifer created a unique plan for the front yard, including new steps and a walkway, which maximizes the space and sues a great combination of textures, resulting in a serene, harmonious appearance. 

"In the back yard, Jennifer and I worked together to reconfigure the bed lines, and she designed a new terrace and new plantings. Everything was installed carefully. And whenever I changed my mind or wanted to try something new, Jennifer was always gracious and helpful. I highly recommend this delightful company."

- Peggy – Wellesley, MA October 2009

"I would not hesitate to recommend Jennifer Nawada to anyone. My husband and I purchased our home in Wellesley last year and both our back and front yards were a mess. 

"We asked Jennifer to provide us with a landscape design and an estimate for the work. We are thrilled with the result! 

"Jennifer is a true professional who knows everything there is to know about plants. Futhermore she is efficient, reliable and has a delightful personality. She is a real pleasure to work with."

- Anna Maria – Wellesley, MA September 2007

"Yes, our new space is wonderful and we are really enjoying it. What a treat to smell the lilacs when I sit out on the deck! We are more than delighted with all the design/work that you did for us. So awesome and updated! ."

- Diane & John L. – Newton Highlands, MA May 2012
