Tony Hurley

I founded Artistic Landscapes in 2004 as a result of my desire to run my own company and to fulfill my personal interest in landscape architecture. I have been studying and working with plant materials with a passion since 1994. Over the past twenty-three years, I have developed an extensive background in designing landscapes and the related maintenance of shrubs and trees. This knowledge helped me earn my Landscape Design Certificate and pass the MCLP, ICPI and NCMA examinations. I am also a Certified Mason in Massachusetts. Unilock, a manufacturer of concrete pavers and wall blocks, designated me a "Unilock Authorized Contractor" in 2012. Another quality manufacturer of concrete pavers and wall blocks, Techo-Bloc, had previously designated me a "Techo-Pro" after reviewing a sample of my jobs and my business. I am a Certified Designer of Landscape Lighting Systems by Cast Lighting and designated as a Lighting Professional by FX Luminaire. In addition to working with plant materials, we often complete a landscape improvement by building new stone walls and walkways that are enhanced with a low voltage landscape lighting system, if those items align with the client's needs and goals.

In the summer of 2013 issue of Coastal Home magazine, I was 1 of 4 experts interviewed for a section titled "Ask the Experts: Outdoor Lighting"

In January 2011, I am quoted in the Cover Story on recycling landscape items in Landscape & Hardscape Design Build Magazine.

In October 2010, I spoke to 35 members of a New Hampshire Garden Club on the best practices to preparing your property for the upcoming New England winter. For more information, please contact us.

In September 2010, I participated in a workshop related to dry laying natural stone at the Tin Mountain Conservation Center in New Hampshire. Under the direction of 1 of the 7 certified Master Craftsmen in the United States and 1 of 163 in the world, I helped build a retaining stonewall adjacent to a circa 1820 barn.

Artistic Landscapes is a member of the Massachusetts Nursery and Landscape Association ("MNLA"). MNLA is a professional organization with a purpose to serve as a symbol of excellence in nursery and landscape products and services in Massachusetts. I am a member of the Massachusetts Association of Landscape Professionals ("MLP"). MLP is a trade association that represents the leading landscape professionals in Massachusetts and elevates the professional standards. The MCLP designation represents the standard of professionalism in the Massachusetts landscape industry. I am a Certified Designer of Landscape Lights by Cast Lighting, a manufacturer of low voltage lighting systems. This achievement was based on a Cast Lighting regional managerís inspection of a multi-faceted landscape lighting system designed and installed by Artistic Landscapes. I am also an ICPI (Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute) Certified Paver Installer. That means that I met all of the requirements and passed an examination within ICPI's Certified Concrete Paver Installer Program. I am also NCMA Certified Installer of Segmental Unit Retaining walls. In my quest to give back to the community, I taught a gardening course at an elementary school as part of a 10-week after school program.

For the first dozen years after graduating from Babson College, I was employed as an accountant and earned my CPA designation. During that period, I developed considerable business experience, a focused and successful management style, and honed the ability to coordinate and deliver value-added services on multiple projects. With any project, I place special emphasis on not just meeting but surpassing the needs of my customers, and I consistently meet deadlines while keeping clients informed of the status of each project. Artistic Landscapes will clearly communicate the plans and process of providing you with a landscape that delivers on your dreams and goals.

I encourage you to partner with Artistic Landscapes in the design of your new landscape or pruning and maintenance of your trees and plants. These services are available anywhere from North of Boston up to and including the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. We have very pleased clients enjoying the landscape lighting systems and patios, etc. which we have designed and built in many towns including, Andover, Arlington, Belmont, Danvers, Georgetown, Groveland, Lynnfield, Melrose, Newburyport, Newton, North Andover, North Reading, Rowley, Salem, Southborough and Topsfield to name a few.
