Rich and the Elite Landscapes crew did an amazing job with our patio, outdoor fireplace and path. From the design of the project (Rich did an incredible design) to the construction (the Elite crew showed great care and attention to detail throughout). Our new patio exceeded our expectations, and we couldn’t be more pleased. I would very HIGHLY recommend Elite Landscapes.
We are so impressed with our patio and landscape installation. From our initial meeting and throughout the entire planning process, Rich carefully listened and thoroughly addressed every question, concern, and idea we’ve had. The end was result was stellar with every detail attended to. The Elite crew is the most efficient crew that we have ever worked with. They worked tirelessly everyday and cleaned up every single night! They are truly a dedicated crew with amazing skill. We can’t rave enough about Rich and the passion he pours into his projects. We trust him with any project in our home.
Dear Rich, We would like to thank you for the wonderful work you did at our home over the past 2 years. We started with an EP Henry Devonshire backyard raised patio and walkway from the side of the home to the patio in year one and then continued to around the pool with walkway to the pool in year two. Your concepts and ideas worked very well with ours and it was a pleasure to jointly make decisions in discussing the advantages and disadvantages.
The aesthetic viewing is wonderful and the choice of landscaping is beautiful so as not to overshadow the hardscape. Many don’t appreciate what underlies your work but I can attest as the “structural” integrity underlying your work (that is settling). Some of the matters that we believe you stand above your competition:
Very professional and courtesy crew; clean-up daily.
Concepts and ideas are very creative. We believe you attempt to understand our desires and mesh your ideas instead of just selling us a “standard” layout. You talk them out.
Some of the finer points that may go un-noticed as for example downspouts.
When issues arise, discussing them fully so we are all in concert of how best to move forward.
We highly recommend you to anyone doing hardscape and/or landscaping. Feel free to have any prospective customers contact if you have the need.
Thank you again.Karen and Greg Kassar
The Brick Paver Driveway, walkways and mailbox you installed for us were the only the exterior elements standing after an 8FT surge of water took over our home, thank youHurricane Sandy Victim
We recently had our patio and hard/landscape done by Elite and we can’t express enough the professionalism Rich and his men give to their clients. It’s safe to say that our backyard was just a typical yard before Rich got a hold of it, but boy has that changed. The end result has been a dream come true for our family.
I must admit at first I was a bit nervous to undergo such a large project since I had such high expectations of how I wanted it to look, but meeting with Rich put my mind at ease once I saw his potential design ideas, his knowledge in products, his attention to small detail , his 3D designs and his passion for all his work, that’s when I knew Elite would be the company to do our job.
Once they began construction, not a day of work was missed. Rich and his men were always punctual and did not leave until the job was complete for the day and the job site was cleaned. His crew was hard-working and took pride in their job. Rich’s customer service is by far the best we have ever received from any company. Rich was a pleasure to work with, he was very polite, helpful, understanding and answered any concern we had about our project. Rich was always a phone call, text or email away and always touching base with us about the status of our project. Throughout the construction we continued to receive great quality of work from both Rich and his men, they all made us feel like they were treating our project as if it were their own backyard. One thing I must commend Elite for is the way they compact the stone/sand that occurred before they laid the Inca. I was so impressed in how much compact they did.
As a final result, our ordinary yard was transformed into something much more then we could of ever envisioned. Our patio and hard/ landscaping exceeded our expectations. We can’t express how truly thankful we are to Rich and all his men for all the hard work that took place in order to give us the pool, patio and hard/landscape of our dreams. I will definitely hire Rich again for any other outdoor living job I have in the future. We can’t wait for the nice weather to get here so we can finally enjoy our very own paradise. Rich once again I can’t thank you and your crew for such an amazing dream come true! Elite is by far the best. Don’t be afraid to use Rich from Elite Landscapes & Pavers, INC you will be very happy with the end results of any outdoor living job he does. So if you need a job done with professionalism and quality call RICH. Thank You!Jose & Patricia Mota
We can’t say enough about Rich and team. We had tight/awkward space, some existing patio, and a budget. Our pool/patio are is now magazine worthy! Not only that, from meeting #1 to completion, every call was returned, and every questions was answered. We deal with many contractors and by far, Elite ranks on top as most professional/easiest to work with.
Extremely professional service from start to finish. We were amazed with the 3-D presentation that incorporated a virtual representation of our project (to scale) and how close the final product resembled it upon completion. Our two-tiered patio (with a daunting 12 foot upper tier) has become a popular second living space for the entire family. Rich Castaldi was responsive to changes we made before and during the course of our installation, worked creatively to meet our budget, was always available via cell/email/text on a same-day basis and had an impeccable attention to detail. We also appreciated having only point of contact with the company for everything from irrigation to hardscaping to landscaping. Pricing was surprisingly competitive given the quality of the work and we are eager for Elite Landscapes to return to our property this Spring to complete a landscaping and paver project in the front of our home. Highly recommended.
Rich, we had our first barbecue on our new patio yesterday. Our family and friends were amazed with what Elite did in our yard. We can’t thank you and the crew enough! We are so happy! You and the entire Elite crew were a pleasure to deal with and your work speaks for itself! Unbelievable! Thank you, thank you!Lisa H.
We recently had our front landscape done by Elite and I can’t complement enough the professionalism that was given from Rich and his crew! Rich was a pleasure to work with and stayed in contact with me via email with continuous updates from start to finish! The design exceeded our expectations and is more than what I could have ever imagined! We are looking forward to working with Rich and his crew again and just wanted to thank them again for the outstanding job they did!Catherine H.
I chose Elite Pavers and Landscapes to install a patio, hardscaping and landscaping around my newly installed pool. The end result was absolutely breathtaking and my backyard was transformed into a dream come true for my family. I personally had high expectations already set for Rich and his crew but to my delight, both Rich and his crew actually exceeded every expectation I had imagined and I am very thankful for everything Rich and his crew at Elite has done.
At the start of the project, Rich demonstrated a great eye for design, a wealth of knowledge of products, keen attention to detail and extremely solid construction practices. Throughout the construction process itself, I felt that Rich treated my project as if it was his own backyard which was demonstrated in his continued attention to detail and his hands-on leadership approach. At the conclusion of the project, I was amazed at the end result and the flawless manner in which our backyard was transformed.
Everyone on Rich’s crew were extremely professional and demonstrated a great work ethic. Both myself and others in my family had commented how Rich and his crew all seemed to take great pride in the work they were doing each day. The quality of the workmanship and the manner in which it was performed by Rich and his crew demonstrated a great amount of experience and talent which confirmed our decision to trust Elite Pavers and Landscapes with our pool project.
Thanks Rich and crew, awesome job!
I wanted to take a few moments and thank you for a job that far exceeded our expectations. Elite worked with our vision to architect a design that was both powerful and practical; while creating our dream backyard.
When my family and I decided to build a pool, we knew the character of the yard was going to be determined by the surrounding landscape. Because of the significance of the project, we performed a diligence that included interviewing several landscaping firms, conducting a Better Business Bureau check and screened client references. Elite rose to the top in all categories and came prepared to our initial meeting with a vast portfolio demonstrating its capabilities. Your consultation on the entire process (elevations, drainage, electrical, plumbing, gas, bonding grids, hardscape and permit process) was reassuring and gave us a vote of confidence that Elite would deliver.
Additionally, the personalized service is unequaled in today’s environment. Elite was never late or missed an appointment, met around our schedules, worked long days to complete the project, and maintained patience as we frequently changed our minds with details.
From graphic design to execution, working with Elite has been a positive and rewarding experience; and one that our family will enjoy for years to come. A special thank you to the entire Elite team!The Crowe's
Everything looks truly amazing. It has been our pleasure working with you and your guys. We knew this was a complex project with your role being the most challenging. Not only did you exceed our expectations but your help managing our pool, fence and sprinkler vendors, along with the inspections, ensured this project got done.
More than anything else, as you know I am small business owner as well. The manor in which you run your business, your integrity and the fact that you delivered everything than you promised (and more) is a highly unique quality and I am certain will make you and your company hugely successful.Gold Family
I signed with Elite to do landscape and lighting installation for our new home. They were so helpful in coming up with a great look for the front yard. They were knowledgeable in all the plants and had an electrician on hand to make sure our lighting system was perfect. We are so glad we let them do our landscape instead of wasting our time and money trying to do it ourself! We are hoping Elite will be back this year to work their magic in our backyard!Don
We hired Elite to do a stone mailbox for the front of our home. Although the job was small, Elite came right out, discussed options with us and the outcome was great. The crew was very professional and our mailbox is a real accent for the front of our home. We are having them come back to redo our walkway and cant wait to continue our home improvements with their help!Paul & Lianne
If you are looking for a company to do an outside project for your home-go with Elite. We met with all the area companies and were glad to finally come across a company that was professional and we could feel safe spending our money with. Elite’s owner was available from our first phone call through the completion of our driveway. He had tons of references and a great portfolio.Anthony Digenero
After interviewing many paver companies to rip out and rebuild our front porch, install cultured stone on the front of our house, and build a side walkway and retaining wall, we were still dissatisfied with our choices. Not wanting to settle, we kept looking and luckily came across Rich (Elite Landscaping).
Our initial phone call was returned promptly and Rich was extremely professional. When he came to our home to discuss our project, he was punctual, knowledgeable and professional. I had done a lot of research and Rich was able to answer all of my questions with confidence and a high degree of knowledge.
Without reservation we hired Elite and started the CAD design process. Once they began construction, not a single day of work was missed. They were always punctual and did not leave until the job was completed and the job site was cleaned. Rich was always present on the job site and his crew was hard-working and meticulous. Rich assisted in all aspects of construction and oversaw the entire project. We could not be more happy with the results…..our paver porch (with cultured stone around the front door) and side walkway are magnificent.
The installation was perfect and the design is magazine worthy.
It is without hesitation that I would recommend Rich/Elite as a paving and/or cultured stone contractor. We will definitely be using them again to do our back patio area!! In this industry they are truly second to none.Jill
Exceptional. We are so happy with the raised patio that Elite has built for us. The quality of work is excellent and the team was very professional, skilled, and focused. Rich was a pleasure to work with. He was very patient and professional through the design process.
He took time to understand our style and vision and showed us pictures, CAD drawings, and samples consistent with what we envisioned. He was always reachable from the beginning to the end of the process and answered emails, text messages and phone calls quickly, which helped us make decisions faster. Overall, it was a great experience and we wish more contractors were as professional and detailed as Elite. The patio and landscaping exceeded our expectations. We strongly recommend Elite.Simone
