We are absolutely thrilled with our patio and front walk designed and installed by Elite Landscapes & Pools. Rich Castaldi and his team designed something unique and beautiful and the plantings and placement look great even in the winter. We completed this in October and got to use the patio for a few weeks in the Fall. Can’t wait for summer on the patio with all the blooming plants! It looks great just looking out from our back windows. A perfect installation. Thanks Rich.

My experience with Rich and Elite could not have been better. Rich is extremely patient with working with you to come up with the right plan. He is extremely responsive whenever you have a concern and is an absolute perfectionist. His crew works quickly and neatly. If you are considering a backyard project, give him a call. You will not regret it!

Elite Landscapes & Pools is a top of the line and professional company. They just put in an amazing pool, paver patio and incredible landscaping in my backyard Rich is the easiest person to work with. His professionalism and attention to detail are way beyond anything I have ever seen. He is creative in his approach and truly cares about the project as if it his own. Rich listens to what you want and helps to make it a one of a kind finished product. He and his crew are consistently on time and leave your property neat and clean. From beginning to end the process was seemless. Rich stands by his work and always keeps you updated on the status of the project. There is nobody better out there to create your dream backyard!

I cannot say enough nice things about Rich and his craft. Working with Rich is a genuine pleasure. From his impeccable attention to detail to the quality and craftsmanship that goes into his projects, Rich and Elite set the bar. I can truly say that Rich puts 110% into each of his projects as if he were building it for himself. One of the best qualities of working with Rich is his trustworthiness and his reliability. If he says it will get done it gets done. If he says the crew will be there they will. He starts your project and doesn’t leave until completion unlike most contractors who disappear for days or weeks. He goes above and beyond to make sure the final result is top notch. Rich created an amazing backyard oasis for us that gets endless compliments from everyone. We couldn’t be happier with the final result and I wouldn’t hesitate to use Rich and Elite for any future projects. We would be the first without hesitation to refer Rich and Elite Landscaping and Pools.

Absolutely the most amazing and professional company I’ve ever dealt with. Our yard came out stunning. Rich and his team are excellent from initial design to the finishing touches. We are so happy we chose Elite and highly recommend them if you want unbelievable workmanship for all your landscaping, hardscaping and pool needs

Rich and the Elite Landscapes & Pools 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 & Pools.

We are so impressed with our patio. 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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Just completed our installation and very happy with the work from Rich and Elite Landscapes & Pools. A beautiful design and great execution. Work performed quickly and efficiently. An extremely professional approach. I couldn’t imagine the process going any smoother than it did. Looking forward to making the most of our new backyard next summer.

We were very confused and concerned among all these contractor came and priced our project. Presentations by these fellows made us think to abort all we were thinking until Richie showed up. Very professional, knowledgeable young man. We decided to use him in our first meeting and we are happy to say that we were not wrong. He showed up as he promised, worked until he finished completely, no excuses, no beating around the bush. We can write a lot but without making this tedious, we can describe him honest, punctual, reasonable, responsive, knowledgeable, organized and above all a gentleman. Any time we called him he was available and provided all kind of assistance to satisfy us.
Richie thank you for hassle free and headache free job, our back yard looks amazing and we will be honored to recommend you to any one we know.

When my husband and I decided we wanted to redo our front walk and landscape we went onto Google searching for the best. We came across Elite and interviewed Rich. He was the perfect match for us. Punctual, fair, real, a great communicator, and most importantly a true artisan in his trade.
From the design stage, to the actual work, to the follow-ups after the project, Rich and his team were hands-on and very responsive. The answer was always, “sure, no problem, we can do that.”
It is clear Rich is passionate about his work and takes pride in his business and craftsmanship. We love the our beautifully laid flagstone walkway and gorgeous landscape accented with stacked stone walls. It fits our home perfectly! We highly recommend Rich and his crew!!

Rich and his team are outstanding, professional, honest, ethical… I could go on and on. They made our backyard dreams come true. Top notch from design to completion.
Kelly Covalesky

I cannot even begin to express how much we love the back yard space Rich and his team created for us.From the first consultation with Rich to the last day his crew was there we knew that Rich is a true master at his craft. The respect that his guys showed us while working not only made everyone feel comfortable but also made this one of the best experiences we ever had. If a backyard paradise is what you want then Elite Landscape should be your choice. Thanks again Rich see you soon.
Dallas Smith

Rich and his guys did an amazing job. Rich was easy to talk to and very helpful walking us through the designing our pool and yard all the way to swimming in our pool. The crew is amazing and does amazing work. Rich promised us a beautiful stress free project. He delivered everything he said and the job came out better than we imagined. You will love working with this company.
Michael Ryan

Our experience with Elite Landscapes & Pools and Pavers was nothing short of amazing. From start to finish Rich and his crew were professional, hardworking, responsive, courteous, knowledgeable and the list goes on! The design was impeccable and executed immaculately. Our expectations were super exceeded and the memories our family has been making since the completion of our new backyard and pool have been priceless. We would recommend Rich and his company over and over again, a big thank you to Elite for everything! Pic attached of our project!

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 you
Hurricane Sandy Victim

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. Pricing was surprisingly competitive given the quality of the work and we are eager for Elite Landscapes & Pools to return to our property this Spring to complete a a paver project in the front of our home. Highly recommended.

We recently had our home 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!

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!

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.
