Rhody Alumni - The Dude's New Business

Unread postby The Dude » 3 years ago

Spring is finally here! Want to spruce up the yard? How about a nice Fire Pit, Patio, Pergola, Walkway, Driveway, Lawn, or Pool? How about installing an irrigation system that saves on water use?
Background Information:
I've just recently started by own business in RI (back in January of this year). I've grown up in RI my entire life. I worked in MA for the last 8+ years in a town called Sudbury. Much of the work I've done over the years has been for high profile individuals with high-end residences in the Weston, Concord, Sudbury and Acton areas of Massachusetts (not too far outside of the Boston area). Now that I'm finally permanently living in South County, I've decided to start my own Landscape Architecture business.
In an effort to gain more business in RI, I've decided to offer a discounted rate to URI Alumni…especially to the ones on this board. You won't see the rate posted on here for the entire world to see. Plus, Landscape design pricing is typically based on the project size anyway, so the total cost varies by the type of project. I'm a Licensed Landscape Architect in RI and CT and a Certified Arborist. I provide services to any property within a 50 mile radius of Narragansett. If you're thinking about doing some work to the property this year, just give me a call or send me an email and I'm more than happy to review your project with you (and to give you a nice low rate :) ).
My Landscape Architecture Company is:

I've seen The Dude's designs when he was working in Mass. He's a gifted landscape architect graduate from the University of Rhode Island.

Dude, can you post any of your renderings here to inspire Keaney Blue to upgrade their properties?

That's great! I'll spread the word. Sometimes I feel like I need a new venture, too.

Would a white Russian or two give me a bigger discount? ;-)

Seriously, good luck. I'd love to see examples of your work.

Doh .... just checked out your website. Great stuff!

For the record…was totally against having stone patio in the sport court. It took away from the basketball area and could cause a tripping hazard where the materials meet. Previous employer and Client over ruled my objections. Just incase people wonder "why is there a table on the court?".

Can you do something very organic looking in a very small yard for a very small price, that includes a fence for my pooch and maybe a nice lean-to sheltered sitting area, that would also include refurbishing of my rotten shed, in other words would you be interested in turning my yard from poor trash yard into tiny riverside paradise for free? :lol: :lol: :lol: Seriously if I ever do get my hands on some money for the yard, I'll look you up and I'll pass on the word to my wealthy friends...

Just FYI…the pictures are of big properties, but I design really small areas too…like plantings around a house foundation or small garden design or even just a planting design for a couple beds. I do small area design work as well. I'm always up for a good conversation. I feel it never hurts to listen. I'm always available to talk during the week, whether it's over the phone or in person.

Examples of some of the items I'm able to design (see full list on website):
-Plantings
-Irrigation design (especially water conservation irrigation design, with can save on water bill)
-Lighting design (some nice uprights for the plants and property at night)
-Fire Pits
-Outdoor Kitchens/BBQ areas
-Driveways
-Patios
-Stone Walls
etc...

Just to let my Ram fans know, you can not go wrong with having The Dude plan your landscape project. He is very thorugh, knowledgable, and imaginative. The ideas that he came up with for my small project were exceptional. He gave my small time project big time attention. It will look great when I get it all done.

The Dude knows what he's doing and is talented at his craft. Give him a call to discuss any kind of upgrade to your landscape.

When my daughter graduates from UVM next year, I'll finally have a little extra money to get some stuff done on my property. I think the driveway would be first. I'll remember to keep this in mind.
