We hired Allure landscaping to do hardscaping and landscaping for our home. Paul has a unique vision, and is very opinionated, which worked for us. We are extremely pleased with the work that his team did.

​​Paul, the owner did the landscape design. His landscape presentation was very professional and he was very knowledgeable of how plantings should be situated. We love his design and the plants chosen. His crew of men were very punctual, very nice, and good workers. We also had him put in a new driveway. And his men did a superb job! The driveway is beautiful. We have gotten many compliments on the plantings and driveway. I would recommend Allure Design.

Gina V. - Norwell, MA



We utilized Paul and the team from Allure Design in both 2015 and 2016 for a fairly significant pool and patio refresh as well as some other landscaping and granite steps. Everyone was fantastic to deal with and Paul made sure efforts were taken to communicate timeline and progress. The work performed was fantastic and still looks like they just finished. Would definitely recommend them!

Excellent work and Creativity in the Design!

I called Allure's office in the Fall to set up a consultation with me and my wife about our 25 year old home property renovation, Paul put a master plan together for me and my wife, it was spot on (he got all our ideas on the first try) we broke the project up into 2 phases preparation, hardscaping and carpentry Fall 2015. Planting, lighting and lawn installation 2016. Paul and his team have been diligent since September 1st. working everyday that weather permitted. There is about 8 to 10 days of work left to do but I felt we should let people know from design to scheduling, to craftsman ship, customer service, Paul, his office and staff have been wonderful to work with.

Also a belated thanks for the Deutsche Bank golf tickets at the beginning of the month. We had a great time following Tiger around that last day as he made one jaw dropping shot after another. I’d still like to take you up on your offer some time and play that beautiful track! Hope business is going well, and to a great fall! Regards.
Jeff & Janice R. Medfield, MA

Steve & Teresa D. Westwood, MA

Hi Paul, Thank you for coming out and laying out the circular drive to fit in with our new addition, we were stumped as how it could work. We look forward in working with you in the spring for all you have designed. All The Best.
Dan & Mellisa W. Boxford, MA

Paulo, I have to say that in 17 years of living at my home in Westwood I am always skeptical of who works on my property. I have over 400 European style plants that were in need of a professional pruning, Joanne and myself are so happy with the pruning and workmanship we are contemplating you replacing our asphalt drive with a European style paver in the spring. I hope you enjoyed the gift certificate to Olivadi’s for a authentic Italian dinner. I commend you.
Anthony & Joanne D Westwood

Good Morning Paul, It was a good omen running into you at Citizens Bank 13 years after you designed and installed the pool, hardscaping and landscaping at my Dover home. I explained I was putting the home on the market last spring  and I needed a tune up, you met me discussed what should be done , showed up with your crew and 2 weeks later completed just what I was looking for, I will be in touch in the spring for a cleanup and re-mulching of the beds, Sincerely.
Rick K Dover, MA

Hey Paul! You are amazing. We met you on a Saturday morning spent 4 hours together discussing our ideas for design around our new pool and back yard. We met again 6 days later , you had full sets of design drawings, specifications, pricing and pictorials of you design , we were blown out of the water. We came to terms and you started 5 days later and completed all phase 1 work (hardsaping) excavation, fieldstone walls, stone steps, and risers, with a 2000sq patio and fire pit. We are absolutely thrilled and cannot wait until spring for the plantings, landscape lighting and finishing touches. Have a good winter call me early march to schedual phase 2. Best regards.
John & Roberta A Franklin, MA

Just to drop you a note Paul we had so many compliments on the holiday decorating and large tree lighting you installed at our home for Christmas it was like WOW. Good job, thank your men who worked with you and we will be calling you in the spring to discuss landscaping enhancements Hope all is well Dana & Beth D Wellesley Hills Happy holidays Paul and to your family, We have had no water in the basement since you came and chiseled out all the old cement and re-grouted-sealed the walls of our inner fieldstone foundation walls. We hope you have a good New Year and if you need a recommendation please do not hesitate to give our name. Happy Holidays!
Eric & Karen M. Walpole, MA

Hi Paul,
The first phase of the master plan project went flawless, we are so excited to have a pool deck in and all the large trees planted. We cant wait for next spring to start phase 2 , happy holiday's and will see you in the spring...GREAT JOB!
Paul & Spring S. Middleton MA

Pablo,
Another great design build project. I can't believe it. It's beyond our wildest dreams, the infinity pool you designed is UNBELIEVABLE! Stacy and I are so happy, and you seem to be getting better with age. (HA HA HA) I know this is the fourth home you have deigned and installed the landscaping, hardscaping lighting and pools with outdoor kitchens that we enjoy all summer. for us. I hope I build another one so I can bring you back. " keep in touch"
All the best.
Ron & Stacy C. Westwood, MA

Dear Paul,
I debated for a month before deciding to work with you, I had some designs and pricing lower than yours but you get what you pay for. You took a total unused blank part of our backyard and designed/built the most beautiful curved seat wall with 2 built in old granite benched, wall lighting and a terrific used bluestone patio. Just what we wanted. The area looks like its been there for years , I am so glad I met you and can't wait for you to start my other home in Topsfield next week.
Thanks again,
Leo and Wendy K Boxford, MA


“Hi Paul, I wanted to drop you a line to say it was a pleasurable experience working with you on our new swimming pool project. As I mentioned we called 3 firms; the first one we left a message and were never called back, the second we made an appointment and they never showed up, we then called your firm and your secretary made an appointment for that evening. From that point on, you took charge, understood our needs & wants. You photographed the site, measured all existing conditions and were back to us in 4 days with plans, pricing, & scope of work. We were amazed! We agreed on a budget and you started a week later & completed our backyard oasis going beyond our expectations. I was a pleasure working with you & should we need anything else we will surely call you.”
Bob & Ann J.  Norfolk MA

​“Peter and I are thrilled at how you came to our property for a 2 hour consultation & had idea after idea after idea, for using all existing plants, with new plants & transform a so-so landscaping to a masterpiece! I would never have thought a little night lighting would enhance the feature trees so well. The yard is finally complete & we are thrilled. Please use us as a reference any time.”
Peter & Brianne L. Andover MA

Just writing to say we had a large family cookout party over the weekend, everyone was swimming, splashing under the waterfall and hanging out in the cabana. Kathy and I got a hundred compliments and the kids had a blast with the detached back yard for softball, badminton, & baseball. It was truly the best start to finish relationship I have ever had with a design contractor. Please feel free to bring anyone over to see the pool, waterfall, cabana and plantings you have installed. Thank you so much. When are we going to play golf?”
​Alex & Kathy Walpole MA

"Vivian and I would like to thank you for the 12 years of property development you have completed to our Franklin home . Things look beautiful. I have since retired in August and will be keeping up on the property maintenance myself, should I have any projects I need completed I will not hesitate to call you. Thanks for everything”​
Peter & Vivian A. Franklin MA

“Good Morning Paul, It’s a small world, I had been playing golf with you at TPC Boston for almost a year, and I never knew what you did for a profession. So when the topic came up that you were a landscape designer, construction co. and my wife and I just installed a built in swimming pool, cabana, I knew you were the man for the design of our back yard. As the professional that you are, you made an 8pm meeting at our home due to my work schedule. I think you left a 11pm- however we completed all decisions- on design, plants, colors, bloom time lawn, irrigation, and landscape lighting. As you mentioned you really do not want to use mulch in pool areas because its messy and will always keep the deck needing required cleaning. The 2” natural river stone that was installed to all the poolside gardens was ingenious. Thanks for a great design, timely completion and keeping our friendship on the golf course.”
Dan & Susan M. Attleboro

Paul, Paul, Paul - I don’t know what I would do without you. I had hired a landscape contractor and after 4-5 days I saw the project was going south. I was at my boiling point. I called you and spoke to your secretary and she had me an appointment set up the following day. I fired the landscape contractor immediately, met with you and your quick wit of the situation was so relieving. You came up with immediate ideas to use the materials on site but in a different fashion, along with the fantastic design you put together in such short notice, I truly owe you and your son a Red Sox game as a small bit of gratitude. I will always be a friend and colleague as well as a reference for your knowledge, management, ideas, and the timly reaction to my nightmare. Thank you from my wife and I."
Bob & Rita M. Foxboro, MA

What others have to say......“Good morning Paul, Susan and I are so pleased with the 10 year vision you had when we first met in 2001 on our 20 acre property looks wonderful, natural and we couldn’t be happier. All the trees, plants, shrubbery and perennials you planted throughout the property are doing exactly as you explained “Blooming all season long” If I can do anything for you as a reference please do not hesitate to call. Hope all is well.”
​Mark & Susan D. Sherborn MA

“Paul you are incredible! As you know we hired a landscape designer a year ago for our rear perennial garden & yard enhancements, our disappointment in their design & planting is beyond frustration, you came in listened, & redesigned our gardens using existing and new plant material, It looks amazing. I am sure next season I will have ever blooming perennials from April to October as you discussed & designed, I can't wait after a long year of disappointment.  Job well done! All the best! We will be in touch in the spring for phase #2”
Tom & Pam B. North Andover MA

“Paul, I am writing this compliment as you deserve it. I have worked with you over 15 years on the new construction of all my custom built 2 million and up homes I have developed. Your imagination is “WILD.” I know we are starting our 18th home today and I just can’t wait to see the final outcome. Your idea of an infinity edge pool as a back yard feature was the icing on the cake. See you on site, to get started tomorrow..”​Ronnie C. Westwood MA

“Paul I just wanted to drop you an email to let you know how thrilled Susie and I are at your design, construction management & completion of our 500’ long entry drive re-design. The granite lamp post running the drive with the selection of plants is incredible. It was a pleasure working with you!”
Frank & Susie F. Boxford, MA

“Paul, it’s a pleasure to write you a testimonial for all the design/build projects you have completed for me as a high end home builder. I only build 2 homes per year, but I always look forward to calling you when I am ready for landscaping. It seems that whatever style home I build you have the vision and design capabilities to make each of my homes unique. I know we bicker over budget but we always work it out. I have 4 lots that I will be developing over the next four years and look forward in working with you on the design/build of the landscaping to finish them off. I truly believe when a client pulls up to see the home for sale for the first time the first thing they notice is the warm and fuzzy before they come inside for a home tour. I am glad I met you at the sandwich shop 9 years ago. Keep Plugging."
Joe P. Franklin, MA

“Hi Paul, Kelly and I were hesitant to bring you on board to re-design our property because we met @ Blessed Sacrament School in Walpole as parents of 9 year olds. We did not want to have issues when our children had so many years left in school and we would be seeing each other regularly. But after coming to our home listening to what we wanted to achieve over a 3-phase project, designing, planning, pricing schedule, and talking to your existing clients our comfort level was assured, you were the real deal. I am glad we decided to work with you, all three phases are complete and the property is exactly what we wanted. Thanks for all the time and effort you put in working with us”
Paul & Kelly B. Wrentham, MA

“What’s up Paul, I felt it necessary to send you this note from Carol and I. I know you work out of Walpole and Hingham is a bit of a ride but you came so highly recommended I gave you a call to set up a consultation. As you know we are on the water with great winds and rain coming off the water, so design was a challenge. You put together the first set of plans and we met and made revisions, you came back within the week with a re-design and revised pricing for hardscaping, landscaping, irrigation, and landscape lighting. The project came out so well it feels like it’s been there forever. We enjoy the plant selection you worked with, sea worthy, low maintenance and thriving. Thanks for all the time and effort you and your team put in. Call me anytime if you need anything. Great Job Paul”
John & Carol G. Hingham, MA
