Nilsen Landscape Design, LLC is a boutique landscape design/ management company founded in June of 2010 by Owner and Principal Designer, Andrea Nilsen Morse.

With a BA from Tufts University, Andrea started her career in the healthcare services industry, and spent twelve years with a Boston area company designing and implementing business products and services. During that time, she discovered her love of design, but wanted to combine that interest with a love of the natural world. After an introduction to the field of landscape design, Andrea went back to school and earned a Certificate in Landscape Design from the Boston Architectural College. In 2010 she left the corporate world and launched her own design firm.

Andrea's experience has uniquely positioned her to understand the expectations of busy, professional, homeowners, and to deliver an exceptional, service-oriented experience. As a LEED Green Associate, Andrea strives to incorporate sustainable ideas into her designs and offers her clients a thoughtful, creative and professional approach to their landscape projects.
