Tell us a little bit about your company and its foundation.
Nilsen Landscape Design is a small design firm based in the Charlestown neighborhood of Boston. I founded the company in 2010 after earning a Certificate of Landscape Design from the Boston Architectural College and leaving a career in the corporate world. The field of landscape design was really a perfect match for me, combining my love of design with the natural world, leveraging the skills I had learned in business around the value of customer service and project management, and acknowledging my natural tendency towards entrepreneurial work. In our fifth year, we now work all over the metro Boston area and into neighboring New England states to create beautiful residential landscapes.
