For residents and commercial business owners across New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Maine, and beyond, our landscaping design galleries can inspire you to begin your next project.

The right landscape design elements can elevate the aesthetic beauty of your garden, lawn, and other outdoor features, as well as add a unique touch that perfectly reflects your taste. At Terrain, we approach landscape design as a blend of art and science, balancing style and functionality in a way that increases the personalized appeal of your home or commercial facility while raising its curb value.

Whether you’re seeking residential landscape design services or a large-scale commercial land development project, the team at Terrain Planning & Design has the experience and expertise required to turn your dream project into a reality.

What Can Terrain’s Landscapers and Contractors Do for You?

Our designers and architects employ an integrated design approach, working closely with each client to ensure their goals are met while providing the collaborative efforts of a highly experienced team. For residential clients, we are sensitive to the fact that your home is your sanctum, that place where memories are made. And for commercial projects, our goal is help build an atmosphere of comfort and trust, a welcoming environment for your own clients.

As lifelong lovers of nature and landscape, we understand the importance of creating an outdoor space or element that is both gorgeous and sustainable for your families, your friends, your customers, and yourselves.

A Sampling of Our Landscape Design Elements

Concrete Pavers

These interlocking stones can be installed on a driveway, patio, or walkway. With a number of shapes, colors, and patterns to choose from, a concrete paver project is practically limited only by your imagination.


Driveways don’t have to be simply functional strips of pavement where you park or pull into a garage. As with concrete pavers, several different types of stones may be used to create something entirely unique, from the old world appeal of cobblestone to the earthy tones of river rock.


We prefer to work with nature rather than against it, utilizing your landscape’s existing features to create luxurious designs that blend in with the natural environment. Our staff holds advanced degrees in Ornamental Horticulture, ensuring that the plants, shrubs, and flowers truly become part of the landscape, rather than just a fancy addition.

Stone Patios

Whether planning an outdoor kitchen to entertain friends and neighbors, or a private retreat where you can relax with a drink and watch the sunset, our landscape designers and architects have a solution for you. From creative mosaics constructed with colored flagstone to added features such as fire pits or fountains, your stone patio can become a place of fun or relaxation–or both!

Stone Walls

Stone walls exemplify the concepts we spoke about earlier, blending art and science, beauty and functionality. They can be built around property lines to create a more natural construction than standard fencing, or around garden beds, stone steps, and patios to set your home and its landscape apart from that of your neighbors.

Swimming Pools

Who doesn’t enjoy a refreshing dip during the peak of summer? Terrain’s custom swimming pools are built, once again, with a singular goal in mind: to be a part of the natural landscape, not apart from it. No two landscapes are alike, and therefore, no two Terrain swimming pools are alike. With waterfalls, plantings, stone paved decks, tiered walkways, and so many other options to choose from, your place of respite and relaxation can become something incredibly special.

Water Features

Whether you wish to create a calm, reflective area for meditation or you simply adore the hypnotic sound of running water, these features add to the ambience of nature. From small koi ponds to majestic European-style fountains, from waterfalls to water walls, or even a combination waterfall-into-pond, Terrain can help create the atmosphere you’re looking for.
