Since 1973 GROUNDS KEEPER has been designing beautiful outdoor living spaces for customers in central New Jersey. From landscapes to patios, pools and kitchens, we help bring your indoor lifestyle outdoors so you can enjoy your time under the sun and stars as much as – or more than – you do on the couch and in front of the TV.
Our professional designers will build a custom fire pit, fireplace or water feature to complement your style and bring added beauty and functionality to your yard.
As an award-winning landscape design company, we understand how to create outdoor spaces that become a natural extension of your home. So whether you enjoy curling up in front of a fire with a good book, toasting marshmallows on a summer evening, gazing peacefully at a fountain or bubbling water feature, or even cooking in your custom fireplace or wood-fired oven, we can bring your dreams to life.
Just wanted to tell you how pleased we are with our new garden and the services of your company. Everyday there are subtle changes and nuances that occur in the garden and it truly gives us more pleasure than we could have imagined. The inclusion of the water feature provides a dimension of tranquility and relaxation. During the installation of the patio, plantings and water feature, you and your staff exhibited nothing but professional, friendly and courteous service. You were all so responsive to our questions and suggestions. We had extremely high expectations for the project and certainly exceeded them!Catherine and Peter B.Manasquan, NJ
Relax, Entertain, Revitalize
Water and fire create a multisensory experience that appeals to us on an instinctive level. Since the dawn of time these elements have been central to our most beloved traditions and part of our most profound rituals.
As part of an outdoor space, they continue to inspire, to evoke emotions and to craft the backdrop for relaxation and enjoyment.
When we design water features or fire elements, we consider how they will appeal to the senses under the glittering summer sun and by the dark of night, incorporating them into the landscape in a harmonious and naturalistic way.
Whether it’s bubbling water in a garden or stone bed, a stately fountain pool, a cascading waterfall, the grand fireplace you’ve always imagined or an intimate fire pit, we can draw every eye and ear in the neighborhood to your home.
Set A Scene To Suit Your Lifestyle
The true beauty and usefulness of an outdoor space lies in the myriad enhancements that turn an ordinary yard into another room in your home, equipped with everything but the walls.
Imagine warm summer evenings telling stories to your children around an outdoor fire pit. Picture crisp fall mornings with a cup of coffee on your patio as you wake up to the calming sound of bubbling water. Dream of the magical moments you’ll experience and the memories you’ll create as you gather to enjoy the sights and sounds of your fire and water features.
From waterfalls, fountains and bubbling stone columns, to cozy fire pits and expansive fireplaces, we can imbue ambiance, create drama, inspire serenity, kindle romance, spark excitement or design just about any other atmosphere you can imagine.
The primal elements of fire and water are ideally suited as the focal point of your outdoor entertainment hub or as the soothing center of your most quiet, reflective moments.
Dear Jay…You, Craig and Brian created an innovative and creative design and product. The pond from the design through the installation blossomed into a unique pond with attached patio, bogs, waterfalls and great landscaping. Both the new pond and the old, now converted to a pondless water feature with basalt columns, look fantastic. Thank you for your attention and wonderful job.Mike K.Marlboro, NJ

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
