Our backyard is the world’s smallest, most beautiful wildlife preserve. We sit on our patio and watch our own reality nature show, from the fish in the pond, to the birds in the feeder, butterflies around the plants and raccoons and possums scurrying across the fence. It’s beautiful, romantic, tranquil and exciting all at the same time.

Vincent & Donna S.Metuchen, New Jersey

We have a secluded oasis in our suburban backyard. The waterfall provides delightful music that filters out unwanted noises. The pond and plants not only provide a beautiful visual; they also attract colorful birds and butterflies. The best part is that maintenance is much easier than we thought it would be.

Susan M.Colts Neck, New Jersey

Of the many professionals I have worked with, I have rarely dealt with someone who has exhibited the combination of capturing my original vision, coupled that with tasteful and detailed execution, delivered great functionality and had the integrity to stand by the promise of "you will be happy and satisfied." You truly have made our world in Colt’s Neck a better place!!

Geoff M. and Matthew H.Robbinsville, New Jersey

We wanted to thank you and your staff for the work you’d done on our garden. For such a small area, the garden and patio have plenty of color, texture and variety. The plantings are both natural yet sophisticated and require hardly any maintenance! We’ve already found it to be a much nicer area for just sitting and relaxing. It was a pleasure working with you.

Connie and Ed K.Matawan, New Jersey

I enjoy sitting by my pond listening to the sounds of running water splashing against the rocks. My pond replaces that missing environment of running streams, fish and hiking trails. When twilight and darkness are illuminated by the special lighting, it creates a tranquil cozy atmosphere. My morning coffee tastes even better when I go out and walk around the pond.

Betty and Mel E.Parlin, New Jersey

Jay’s crews have completed many landscaping jobs for us, from a beautiful pond in our backyard to a fishless stream in our front yard. Jay also landscaped both our front and back yards with seasonal flowers, grasses and bushes. Groundskeeper has responded to our needs and we are extremely happy with the way they enhanced our property and created a beautiful landscaping theme.
