"There are only so many hours in the day, but don’t tell that to landscape designer Russell Stott. As both principal of Andover Landscape Design and Construction and senior manager of Campus Design, Sustainability, and Grounds at Phillips Academy, Stott often says that, 'Phillips Academy is my nine-to-five, and Andover Landscape is my five-to-nine.' A strong love of design, the design process, and fostering relationships with his clients—not to mention a very supportive wife—fuels his daily passion.
 
When he’s not overseeing the 700-acre campus noted for its Frederick Law Olmsted and Charles Platt design, Stott works on a number of custom residential projects across New England. Recent Massachusetts projects include a contemporary rooftop garden in Boston, a backyard pool design in North Reading, master plans for a Federal-style home in Chestnut Hill, and a summer estate in Orleans."

"Stott approaches each landscape as a sculptural installation. 'I feel that my designs emerge naturally from their surroundings and have a strong connection to both the home’s architecture and the native environs,' he says. 'I am constantly trying to find ways to blur the lines between interior and exterior.'
 
Colors and materials take their cues from the home’s architecture, and classic New England materials like granite and bluestone are arranged in clean, contemporary patterns. Along with design elements such as simplicity and asymmetrical balance, his work is also shaped by a solid understanding of how plants mature and what maintenance they require to preserve their design intent.
 
Somehow, Stott also finds time to give back to his community. He currently serves as chairman of the Greater Lawrence Technical School Horticulture Advisory Program, which he hopes will help foster the next great landscape designer."

ANDOVER LANDSCAPE DESIGN & CONSTRUCTION FEATURED IN NORTHSHORE HOME MAGAZINE SUMMER 2018 EDITION

We're excited to share that our Spruce Road Poolscape has been featured in Northshore Home Magazine's Summer 2018 edition -- on newsstands now! You can also view it digitally on pages 88-91. 

We really enjoyed developing the rear of the property for entertaining family & friends. The wish list included a pool, a generous deck, a hot tub, a lounge area, a sunning deck, and a screened room retreat located within the trees. Pulling off the home’s contemporary architecture, we kept the design linear and simple. An 18 x 36 gunite pool with wedding cake style steps is the visual centerpiece of this back yard sanctuary. Two bluestone terraces are on either side of the pool; one supporting the chaise lounges that face south for optimum tanning while the other is home to the dining area that also provides a transition to the rest of the yard. Large bluestone steppers with lawn joints connect both areas without the heavy feel of a solid walkway.

The existing deck was modified which allowed us to sink the hot tub into the frame. This reduced the overall height and kept the sight lines from the home’s interior intact. A vertical cedar screen was built for added privacy and that same material, albeit proportionally smaller, was used to wrap the hot tub for a cohesive look.
