Landscape Services in Medfield, MA

A landscape is more than a “thing” that surrounds a house or business. Your landscape can become a Life‑Scape™; a special, beautiful, and functional part of your property. The Garden Continuum strives to enrich the human experience by considering your unique personality, the natural features of your land, and the environmental impacts of design and installation.

To learn everything about our landscape services in Medfield, here’s a list of what we do in town. Medfield, MA has become near and dear to our hearts. This town has taught us so much about our craft and about how Landscapes and Gardens improve the lives of individuals and communities alike.

Here is a list of the information on this page:

Landscaping in Medfield, MA

The Garden Continuum chose to move to Medfield, MA in 2005 to become part of a vibrant community of homeowners and businesses that appreciate the value of creating landscapes that enrich people's lives, a concept that we call Life-ScapingTM

Since arriving in Medfield, The Garden Continuum has connected with local environmental enthusiasts to enrich our community by building, maintaining, and protecting the public and private landscapes throughout the town. Medfield’s commitment to open space planning and conservation is outlined in the opening sentence of their Open Space bylaw

“For the purpose of encouraging the preservation of open space and promoting the more efficient use of land in harmony with its natural features...”

This aligns perfectly with our dedication to ecological practices that are supported by sustainable design and construction, as well as organic gardening methods. 

Hyper-Local Landscaping Services in Medfield, MA

Our Hyper-Local Landscape Mission starts in Medfield, MA. 

Our office is located at 67 West Street on the corner of Route 27, just two light cycles north of the Route 109 intersection. In 2010, the effects of the recession and the reality of climate change led us to realize that in order to grow as a company, we had to make a change. 

Most landscape companies travel many miles, sometimes spending hours in gas- and diesel-guzzling trucks to get to job-sites. We made the decision to release all of our clients that required more than 30-minutes of commute time and focus locally.  

Our realization was that landscape companies travel so far when there’s work right in their “backyards” because they don’t know how to or are unwilling to communicate through marketing, public outreach, and community service. Additionally, we understood that to work in a hyper-local environment, you must cherish that environment. And we do!

Hyper-Local Service Has Three Levels of Access

  1. Level One - Medfield, Massachusetts. We aim to do 50% of our work in this one township. 
  2. Level Two - Surrounding towns that touch or are extremely close to the Medfield town lines: Dover, Millis, Norfolk, Sherborn, Walpole, Westwood. 
  3. Level Three - Select towns that are primarily accessible from main roads, namely Route 27, Route 109, and Route 16. These routes act as corridors to communities where we already have a client base. 

The Hyper-Local Service Strategy is about committing to sustainability and working in ecological congruence with our environment. It is about building a friendly, relationship-based business practice that focuses on the people at the center of the work we do on our planet. It allows us to do more and feel better about our work each day. 

Landscape Maintenance Services in Medfield, MA

At The Garden Continuum, we think of landscape maintenance as a necessity with land ownership. But even more than that, we see it as the duty of all people to love and tend the land to keep our planet vibrant and healthy. As one of our core values, we put focused energy into educating our clients and community about the benefit of landscape maintenance.

There are three levels of landscape care that need to be addressed by every landowner—residential and commercial landscape maintenance included. This work can be done by the owner, or by a landscape professional. Often it’s a partnership between the two that gets the work done most effectively over time. (see The Fine Gardener’s Guide to a Beautiful and Luxurious Landscape.)

  • Minimum Thresholds of Care (MTC)
    • This is the work that MUST be done predictably and repeatedly throughout the year to keep the property from falling into disrepair. MTC ensures a level of organization, cleanliness, and safety to the landscape. 
  • Enhancement Landscape Management (ELM)
    • This work is also integral to keeping a landscape organized, clean and safe, ELM is more keenly focused on managing health and vitality. These services are often happening less frequently than the MTC services but they do have a predictable schedule that is guided by the seasons and current weather. 
  • Special Landscape Projects (SLP)
    • This work is hyper-focused on making a small improvement, correction, or addition to the landscape. This work is often driven by a need that has been identified by your landscape professional or by you! You want this to be a one-and-done project!

Wherever your capability and enjoyment lie in the landscape, be sure to check out TGC Academy for tons of information on how to take a nature-forward approach to your next project and feel empowered whenever you partner with a professional.

Here are some fun highlights of residential, community, and state landscape installations we’ve done over the years in Medfield, MA!

Residential Landscape in Medfield, MA

Residential landscape installations are so much more than just a project. When we are given the opportunity to design and build a Life-Scape for a client, we are being invited to improve their lives at home. From the first idea that a transformation is possible to the moment when the final stone, mulch, or flower is set, we have a responsibility to care for the land and deliver it back to our client in a state of high-function, health, and beauty.

Sustainable Park Landscape in Medfield, MA

We had the great pleasure of working with a vibrant team of Medfield residents in the design and construction of a pocket park in the center of town. 

Straw-Hat-Park-1
Straw Hat Park is a sustainable landscape in the center of Medfield, Massachusetts. This eco-friendly park attracts visitors to hang out and enjoy Nature in a healthy and organic state. 

Straw Hat Park has turned out to be a popular gathering space for residents and visitors of Medfield, MA. Over fifty percent of the construction budget was raised through donations and gifts. The town supported the final investment through a financial infusion and the services of the DPW construction teams and equipment. 

The park was a blast to create and warms all of our hearts at The Garden Continuum to see happy visitors enjoying the space. We love it so much that we donate three garden maintenance visits a year to support the Medfield Parks & Rec Department’s efforts for necessary care. 

Straw-Hat-Park-2Straw Hat Park is nestled below Starbucks, to the side of Nosh & Grog Restaurant, and is visible from the Medfield Town Offices. 

At The Garden Continuum, we believe in giving back to our community. The Thomas Upham House in Medfield, MA is a skilled nursing facility in the center of town. My father was cared for here by the amazing men and women that have chosen this often challenging work. They guided me and my father through his transition onward from this life. I couldn’t have navigated so well without their love and support.

Thomas-Upham-House-1A colorful show of bulbs wakes up in this garden to greet the blooming forsythia that highlights the front of the Thomas Upham House in Medfield, MA. We love giving some WOW and delight to the house residents and the team of professionals that care for them. 

As a thank you, we donated a garden in my father’s name, Sourene G. Papazian, with the help of many clients, family members, and friends who donated to help bring colorful flowers and the bright vitality of Nature to the wonderful porch at the front of the building. I have fond memories of sitting on that porch with my dad as we watched life bustle by on Rte 109 in Medfield, MA. 

The Garden Continuum’s Fine Gardening and Seasonal Decor Team continue to joyfully maintain the property as our gift to everyone at the Thomas Upham House, as well as the Medfield community.
