Even in the mid-1600s, settlers recognized the beauty and benefits of living in what would become Longmeadow, Massachusetts. With the Connecticut River as its western border, the area served as a farming community for years. That rich soil and idyllic location is today a beloved home for nearly 16,000 people with an appreciation for the outdoors, as evidenced by beautiful parks, well-tended business fronts, and creative outdoor living spaces.

Through Longmeadow, sweeping front lawns are carefully manicured and lined with shrubs, flowers, and stone walkways. Backyards are customized to align with the homeowner’s lifestyle, and you’ll find a variety of features beyond the backdoor: paver patios and fire pits, outdoor kitchens, retaining walls, garden beds, water features, and more.

At Better View Landscapes, we’ve been offering landscaping services in Longmeadow, Massachusetts, and throughout the Pioneer Valley since 1995. With years of experience in local horticulture, climate, and building regulations, we provide turn-key landscape design and installation for Longmeadow residents who want to experience the joy of outdoor living in all four seasons.
