Thanks again. Everyone that enters our back yard is in awe. Our neighbor came back with her daughter and the daughter exclaimed “mom, it looks like a resort back here!” Our neighbor on the side by the water feature says she loves to go out in her sun room and look at it. We put a gas fire pit on the patio and it is just so nice sitting out there at night with the fire pit on and the lights on the waterfall. It’s quite obvious why you have won so many home and garden awards!Laura and Tom O.Old Bridge, NJ
We Start With Your Ideas And Dreams
If you want to create an outdoor living space with a new patio, pool, pond, or outdoor kitchen, or simply improve your landscaping by adding or replacing walls, walkways, pathways, gazebo, landscape lighting or four season plantings, we can make your dream a reality.
Our design process helps you visualize how beautiful your landscape can become. First we invite you to visit our design studio for your initial consultation, where we ask you many questions and listen to ensure we gain a full understanding of your ideas and dreams.
Next, we will take you on a tour of our design studio where you can see, feel and smell all the landscape elements installed on our property and feed your imagination. At this point we will have a better understanding of your desires. We will then provide our portfolio of work for your review. We often find that this step allows our clients’ ideas to come alive with the possibilities and hidden opportunities for their home.
Then, if you are comfortable with our ideas, we will schedule a visit to your home. At that meeting we will be able to determine how all of our ideas and your desires will work with your property.
This is where it gets really exciting for our clients! Based on our review of your property, we will be able to paint a picture of the full potential of your landscape project and to offer options to meet the investment you wish to make.
Our Approach Is To Work With Nature Rather Than Dominate It
To do that we hire, train and retain the best people. In designing your landscape, we seek to create a sense of space by focusing on the connection between interior and exterior spaces and between naturalistic garden spaces and the wider landscape.
We incorporate the natural features of the land, architecture of the home, existing flora and other specific features of the site to create an emotional response through sight, sound, and motion.
By incorporating the latest in technology for lighting, drainage, music and more with the natural elements of your New Jersey home, we create an environment that provides you with the perfect naturalistic setting to relax, entertain and enjoy.
Whether you want to create an outdoor living space or improve the curb appeal of your home, we can make your property the envy of your neighbors.
From the moment we engaged Groundskeeper to design our outdoor space, we knew it would be special and unique.
Jay's expertise in plant choices and attention to every detail brings beauty that is displayed in every season. Jay and his team, due to their professionalism and expertise made the entire process enjoyable, informative, and rewarding!
When people come to visit our home, the compliments never end about the soft, beautiful, natural landscaping.Anita and Dan BelliOld Bridge, NJ

I want to thank you for transforming my barren fenced yard into a beautiful, lush garden. You and Craig listened carefully to what we wanted and created such a beautiful design that has a variety of colors, includes some fruit plants, and has already attracted birds and hummingbirds. I can't wait to see how it develops over the years.
It's been a real pleasure working with you. David and I are looking forward to working with you next spring on adding in some of the features we didn't get to yet.Janet G. and David F.Freehold, NJ
