Thayer Nursery Outdoor Craftsmen


Thayer Nursery's Outdoor Craftsmen is a full-service landscape contractor who builds and maintains the finest residential landscapes. Founded in 1965 by the late Robert C. Oldfield, we are proud to be the second generation to own and operate in Milton. 


The Outdoor Craftsmen is led by Josh  Oldfield. Upon graduation from Milton High School, Josh attended Kimball Union Academy, and then followed in his father's footsteps and received his degree in Landscape Design from the University of Maine, Orono. 


The experience of literally 'growing up' at the Nursery combined with his UMaine education has enabled Thayer Nursery to grow its portfolio of clients through not only Milton, but also the South Shore, Metro West and beyond. 


We pride ourselves on consistent craftsmanship that exceeds our customer's expectations. Our skilled team of landscape professionals has delivered the highest quality and best value for our clients. We are dedicated to the daily beauty and long-term integrity of the landscape.


Our field is stocked with a rotating selection of specimen plants and trees and we can source materials from across the country to meet our customer’s demands. Our projects range from country estates, oceanfront bluffs, suburban gardens and city courtyards


Our services include complete site preparation, planting, masonry, and more.   Whether you are interested in redesigning your entire yard or rejuvenating it with some stylish plants, we welcome the opportunity to work with you and 'craft the outdoors of your dreams.'
