Our Philosophy

At Parker Garden our philosophy is to approach every project in partnership with our clients. We get to know you and your property, and then we come up with distinct design options that blend your tastes with our expertise.

While every project is individually designed, in all cases our goal is to provide the perfect balance between hardscape (walls, patios, walks, bricks, boulders) and plant materials (trees, shrubs, perennials, plantings). We’re passionate about reflecting the living history of our region’s native materials, including New England fieldstone, granite, bluestone and other types of natural stone, and the plants that flourish in our terrain.

Whether your project is modest or grand—whether you are looking for dazzling or demure—we’ll create a landscape that inspires moments of pause and years of visual joy.

About Bill Parker


Bill Parker is an accomplished veteran of the design/build landscape profession and is the principal of Parker Garden. He has an extensive background in landscape design, plant material knowledge, hardscape construction and project management, and has designed and installed landscapes throughout New England for more than 35 years. Bill specializes in the use of indigenous hardscape and plant materials, skillfully merging them with the natural aesthetic elements of each specific property in an environmentally responsible manner.

Bill has been repeatedly recognized for his achievements in landscape design and installation. His artistic style relies on a keen ability to provide clients with a landscape that not only fits their tastes and needs, but also breaks away from the commonplace approach to landscape design and installation. There is no template in Bill’s toolbox; his inspiration comes from collaborating with his clients and his reverence for nature.  

Bill is also an active member of both his community and professional leadership organizations. He is a Nashua Conservation Commissioner and member of the Ecological Landscape Alliance, Association of Professional Landscape Designer and the New Hampshire Landscape Association.

We found Bill Parker easy to work with both during the landscape design phase as well as the execution phase. We found Bill and his crew to be very friendly, professional and cooperative. We knew that Bill and/or his crew would be on site on the day and time we were promised. While our new home site presented some major challenges we are very happy with the end result. The bottom line is that we would not hesitate to recommend Parker Garden Design in the future.
