About Church Hill Landscapes

Church Hill Landscapes is a landscape-construction and gardening company based in Charlotte, Vermont.

Nate Carr started Church Hill Landscapes in 2002 out of a desire to create diverse, beautiful gardens and outdoor spaces for clients across Vermont and beyond. He now employs a full team of gardeners, masons, and landscape designers who build and maintain creative landscapes across Vermont.

We build custom walkways, patios, walls, gardens, water features, and terraces that are inspired by the surrounding landscape. But our goal is bigger than that: We want to build a patio where you gather with friends on a summer evening. The fire pit where you teach your daughter to build a campfire. The stone wall where you sit to watch the stars. The shade tree you retreat to on a hot day. We design and build landscapes. In doing so, we hope to make the life you live outdoors richer.

We care about the quality of work we do, the relationships we forge, and the results we leave behind when we’re done. And we’ll work closely with you to create a space that makes you feel at home outdoors.



Nate Carr, Owner

Nate graduated from the University of Vermont in 1997 with a degree in sustainable landscape design and horticulture. After graduation, he worked as an organic vegetable farmer for two years, then changed his focus from growing food to cultivating ornamental perennials. While working as the manager of a nursery in Vergennes and continuing to grow unusual ornamentals, Nate began fielding requests from customers who wanted him to design and tend to their home gardens.

In 2002, he launched Church Hill Landscapes with a small crew of fellow landscapers and horticulturists. Several of his first clients challenged him with requests for complex naturalistic backyard waterfalls and other advanced landscaping jobs. In completing those jobs to customer satisfaction, he set the precedent for quality workmanship and sustainable landscape design that exists today.
