About Prato Associates, Inc.
Established on September 1, 1989, Prato Associates, Incorporated was formed to serve the residential market providing Landscape Architectural Design/Build services to a range of clients broader than what was readily available. From our first year with 2 employees and 1 truck working in and around Burlington, we've grown to a level where we can cater to every project from simple gardens to complex site development including earthwork, masonry, utilities and more traditional landscape construction, traveling from the South Shore to as far north as Falmouth, ME, and as far west as Grantham, NH. We do not supply maintenance, but create and oversee comprehensive management plans.
Based in Burlington Ma and working primarily in Eastern Massachusetts, we specialize in providing residential landscape design and construction services as well as handling commercial projects ranging from the development of small retail market planting plans to multi-phased commercial developments. Our mission is to supply the finest in design, consultation and construction of exterior environments for both new and experienced homeowners, architects, builders and developers.
Our growth has intentionally been kept in check so we may maintain close contact with clients, while exploring and utilizing new technology and materials. Our emphasis remains with residential work which we feel is more rewarding due to its variety and potential for a more dramatic creation.
Please take some time to explore this site, and feel free to contact us with any questions or to arrange your first, no-obligation meeting.
