Crafting a personalized design that seamlessly blends style with function and nature requires a keen eye and trained mind developed through education and decades of experience.

Creating real value for you means pulling together elements like custom stone walls, patios, fire pits or fire tables, stunning perennial gardens, or large pools or smaller Soake Pools in a way that can satisfy everyone who lives or spends time at your home.

Promoting Wellness and Peace of Mind

Finding moments of tranquility and relaxation away from the news, social media, and screens in general is more important than ever.

The outdoor spaces of your home should call you outside into the sun, and fresh air to deliver some increased happiness, wellness and peace of mind by connecting you with your own little slice of nature. From fire pits that warm and delight to water features that soothe the senses to lush greenery and the color of well-chosen native plants, your backyard can provide a natural escape from the stresses of daily life.

You should experience a backyard where you can unwind and recharge daily whenever you need a break from the hustle and bustle.

Sustainable Landscaping Design Practices for Long-Term Benefits

Fundamentally, landscaping design and landscape architecture take into account how important sustainability is to the local ecosystem and how long your outdoor space will sustainably perform, in other words, how long it will last. For this reason, every design we develop incorporates eco-friendly landscaping ideas, best practices for stormwater management, and locally and regionally sourced materials to guarantee that your hardscape areas will look stunning now and in the future and the plant material like trees, shrubs, and perennials and stay alive and healthy for many years to come.
From the native plantings of your garden that require minimal water set in rich organic soil to low or zero-maintenance hardscape materials like bluestone and granite to permeable applications that reduce runoff and erosion, we'll create and install a sustainable landscape that's as good for the planet as it is for your property.
Because much of the city is densely developed, landscape construction projects in Manchester require permitting to proactively limit the amount of impervious space and to follow all city ordinances regarding development. It's important in all land planning to be aware of what can and can't be done to a property. This intelligent approach ensures the land's overall health by promoting water infiltration rather than runoff to prevent erosion.

Nest Outdoors is experienced with the permitting process in Manchester and ensures every design in compliance.
