pool

Damiano Landscaping designed our pool and the landscaping around our house.  When they finished Chuck Damiano asked us if we were satisfied.  Our answer was that if it was 1/10th as beautiful we would have been completely satisfied. The job was completed efficiently and at the quoted price.  His workers were more then skilled, they were artists.  They were always cordial and polite.  Anyone who sees our place for the first time is amazed by the beauty and workmanship.  The design, the stonework, the plantings are breathtaking.  We would strongly recommend Damiano landscaping to anyone and have many times.  Feel free to ask Chuck and Eric to see our place.

"Everything looks great! We’ve gotten so many compliments about the landscaping and the waterfall.  And it’s a real pleasure to be able to walk to the pool over a dry lawn.  Thank you so much for all your creativity, patience and hard work.  You really made our home a beautiful place!"

- Deedie & Ramish, Armonk, NY

 

"Greg and I want to thank you so very much for making our dream come true.  Truly we never had any doubt that you and your wonderful crew would make it all happen in such a fantastic way.  Please pass this thank you onto Eric & David.  Two great guys who couldn’t seem to do enough to make us happy.  Our pool area is now “paradise” and we will enjoy it for many years to come!  Chuck, you’re the man and we thank you again!"

- Suzanne & Greg, Chappaqua, NY

 

"When we fist met 4 years ago you said our 20 acre parcel would be a challenge.  Now the entire property is breathtaking.  From our pool area to our natural stone waterfalls and planting, we sometimes cannot believe this is our home.  Damiano Landscaping has designed the project to fit our needs with accurate planning and realistic budgets.  Your idea about phasing the project gave us time to digest each area."

- Steve & Julie, Bedford, NY

 

"Thanks for the awesome job! You and your team of guys were really efficient and clean!  We are looking forward to enjoying our new backyard! Thanks again!"

- Lynn & Michael, Irvington, NY

 

"We can't say enough about how fantasic Chuck & Eric from Damiano Landscaping are! They took our input which consisted of the statement "Take a look around the house and figure out what the backyard should look like" and transformed our sizeable, but usable lot into an oasis. Their advice about how to make the pool child safe and family friendly was invaluable, as was their expertise regarding underground water management which we knew was going to be a challenge entering into the project. we strongly recommend Damiano Landscaping to anyone planning to upgrade their outdoor living space!"

" I recently had the pleasure of working with Chuck Damiano and Daminao Landscaping on the design and construction of a new pool and patio at my home in Ho-Ho-Kus, NJ. We were introduced to Chuck through our pool contractor, and couldn't be more grateful for that introduction.

From the initial design phase through the laying of sod to complete the project, Chuck and his crew did everything right. To say that they were thorough, courtrous, honest, clean and met deadlines does not even begin to give them enough credit. When the project manager from the pool company stopped communicating effectively, Chuck, without prompting, filled that role and kept the project moving forward. It was clear during every step of the process that Chuck had out best interests in mind and wanted nothing more than to complete the project so our 20-month-old daughter could go swimming.

Not only did Chuck design a fantastic pool, patio, and backyard landscape, but he was available to us if we had any questions or concerns. Be it over the phone or an on-site visit, Chuck was a constant presence throughout the whirlwind that is a construction project. The work that he and his crew did was impeccable and cost exactly what Chuck quoted us in our contract.

I reccommend Damiano Landscaping without any hesitation. Chuck will be the only person we call for our next big outdoor project. When you work with Chuck, not only do you get an amazing contractor, but you get someone who will easily become a friend for life."

I can only believe that it was divine intervention that Yvonne visited our pool and highly recommend you. It is an understatement to say that Damiano Landscaping transformed our yard - and therefore, our home.

It was an absolute joy to work with You & Eric. Not only do you know your craft, you managed to instill trust in me - a total control freak - -with your knowledge, candor and great humor. You both were gracious, patient, and extremely positive during the entire project. You turned every "problem" into an opportunity with innovative thinking.

Your design plan was sheer artistry. Moreover, when I insisted upon keeping certain plants, you found the perfect way to incorporate them into the plan. You carefully listened to my "wishes" and somehow managed to give me exactly what I wanted -- a "jaw-dropping but suble, structured but casual, child-friendly but elegant, lush but bee-free" oasis. In short, I asked for the impossible - and your delivered (with minimal bees!).

Every Person who worked with you was exceptional. Your grounds team was polite, neat, diligent, and very detail-oriented. While I could set the clock by their arrival, they were so quiet and on task, many days I didn't realize they were here! The lighting, fencing, and sprinkler contractors you recommended possessed the same demeanor and work ethic. They were responsive, professional, dependable - and again, the nicest guys!

The most indelible impression you made, however, was how you and your team befriended our four-year-old son. Your crew always took the time to answer his questions and watch his little antics. Among other great moments, Chuck , I will never forget the wonderful chocolate bunny you left for him your last day of grading the property. Harris will miss "Mr. Eric" and "Mr.Chuck" -- and so will I.

On behalf of my family, thank you for making our home so beautiful.

The Damiano Landscaping company was subcontracted by Anthony Pools to build the waterfall for our new pool. Chuck Damiano, who owns this company, handled the project both professionally and timely. Mr. Damiano supplied us with rendering of the propsed waterfall and then personally supervised the projection everday what work was being done.

Each stage of the project was carefully discussed and planned so that we would know what to expect and when. Mr. Damiano and his crew showed up each and every time they were expected and executed the plan without a problem.

The waterfall is quite impressive and is far more eloquent than any of the other waterfalls that were built for us by Anthony Pools. Mr.Damiano has captured the spirit of pool's design and elevated it beyond our hopes. He has also managed to make a statement that sets the tone for the rest of the area.

The waterfall is the first thing that catched your eye when you first view the pool area and the appearance determines the opinion of the whole area, it clearly sets the atmosphere and provides the viewer with a virtue "work of art" to enjoy.

"Please accept my sincerest thanks for the beautiful landscaping you designed for my house. Your artistic talents are reflected in your work and the results are a pleasure to look at. "

"Many thanks for our beautiful landscape! "

"I just wanted to thank you and Eric for the fantasic job that you have done with our landscaping. You have truely transformed what was a complete disaster after the renovation of our home into a thing of beauty that we never could have envisioned. After renovating our home for 2 years and dealing with many contractors, both good and bad, our dealings with Damiano Landscaping stands out as the best experience in the whole renovation process.

Chuck came up with a design that was way beyond our expectations and something we never could have imagined on our own. He was a pleasure to deal with and intuitively knew what we were looking to do even though we were not very good at putting it into words. In addition, when he puts a date and time on the calender, he always shows up on time and ready to work.

One of the best experiences of renovating our house was the days that Eric and his guys began planting and making a reality to the design that Chuck had put to paper. They were professional, courteous and neat. The plants that were provided were bigger and healthier than naything we have ever seen in a nursery. As good as the design looked on paper the final product blew it away. We continue to get people who slow down as they drive past our house to look at the landscaping. I don't think you can ask for a better compliment than that!!!!!!"

"In 2006 when we purchased our house, it sat on one acre with no landscaping whatsoever. We understood that this would be a significant investment in our home and as a result were very meticulous in picking a lanscape company. We initially met with numerous companies and ultimately decided to go with Damiano, because they clearly demonstrated that they had the necessary expertise. They listened to what we wanted and drew up plans that not only incorportated those wishes but far exceeded anything that we could have envisioned for our property. It was decided that the project should be divided into "phases", mainly front and back, whereby each phase was completed seperately, when we wanted. This really helped us manage overall costs.

We are absolutely thrilled with how our property turned out, the actual results speak for themselves. Apart from the aesthetics which inculdes a waterdall, pool, deck, patios and plantings, our property is graded and drained properly thus ensuring we don't have any problems. Chuck, Eric and their crew are fantastic to deal with. They are professional and competent and we were really thankful that we could trust them so completely. They were truly invested in our project and also seemed to get a lot of enjoyment about the changes taking place which was nice to see.

The amount of enjoyment and pleasure we get from our garden is wonderul. Throughout the seasons, particularly sping, summer and the fall the garden is a constantly changing landscape with a continuous array of blooms making it exciting and interesting. We get a lot of compliments about how beautiful our garden is and the reaction from someone seeing our property for the first time is usually and simply "WOW". I would not hesitate in recommending Damiano"

"It is with great pleasure that we write this letter of thanks and recommendation. My husband and I could not be happier with the amazing work you and your team accomplished. When it comes to landscaping design you are an artisan, and we think that the fact that you quote both Shakespeare and Emily Dickinson is an added Bonus!

When we met, you will recall that our pool had already been dug and we were a little nervous about the pool layout. You listened intently in our concerns and translated our poorly articulated ideas into and amazing design. Your suggestion of boulder walls and graduated sone steps enhaned the natural beauty of our yard and blended perfectly with our setting. Your plans were detailed and artistic, and most importantly, the work stated faithful to the plans.

When it came to the actual work, you did not disappoint or disappear. You were the one on the machine placing every boulder with attention to color, size, shape and texture. It was here your artistic genius became evident. Our pool scape and waterfall look as it they have been here for years. The boulder walls are nestled into the ground and the stone steps and walkways meander naturally. You took our ideas and made them into a reality that far surpassed our hopes and you finished ahead of schedule!"

"Deciding to add a pool to our home was a huge decision for our family, tahnkfully we had Chuck Damiano and his team to guide us throughout the entire project, from beginning, to middle, to the very end.

Chuck had a vision for our property in the fall of 2010 and by the time our project was done in July 2011 he completely transformed our yard into a backyard oasis. What was once a wide open yard, completely devoid of privacy, is now a secluded beautiful area perfect for our young family.

Damiano Landscaping not only met, but completely blew away our expectations. We can't believe we are sitting in our own yard, we feel as if we are at a resort on vacation every day.

Chuck Damiano's skills as a designer are only matched by his professionalism. Always accessibly, Chuck took ownership of the project and treated our property as if it were his own.

We can't thank Damiano Landscaping enough and we look forward to enjoying our yard for a lifetime. Chuck and his team come with our highest recommendation "

"I felt compelled to send you a formal THANK YOU! The work you and your team completed this week has put the final touches on what has been a 2-year journey to create our dream home! You have managed to transform our simple colonial into an oasis with your designs, suggestions and ability to deliver with no surprises and with the utmost concern for the work itself but more importantly for my family.

The countless compliments recieved on the Waterfall, Patio design and landscaping for the pool area have been non-stop over these past 2 years and with the completion of the front walkway and lanscaping design this fall; I even have the mail man stopping to look and then compliment me on your work.

Damiano Landscaping not only met, but completely blew away our expectations. We can't believe we are sitting in our own yard, we feel as if we are at a resort on vacation every day.

In the end, it was your professional, courteous and friendly manner that made the most difference. Eric was a true professional that extended the same courtesies with a willingness to meet our every request day in and day out on the job!

Thanks again for a job well done and for creating a wonderful environment for my family as well, to grow deep roots! "

"I would like to start by saying thatnk-you for all the time and effort you spent with us and our yard. To say it has simply been a pleasure would be an understatement. The passion and demeanor in which you approached our yard and more importantly our family can best be described as the "gold standard" in not just the trade of landscaping design/build, but in all trades. Over the years we have embarked on many projects involving many different contractors and traders, and without hesitation we can say you and Eric are in a league by yourselves. All boxes have been ticked, and always with a smile and never with an "asterisk", not to mention always over-delivering on both the people and the product fronts. From the initial meeting, to the design and concluding with the final three weeks of completion, every step and stage has been enjoyable from an interaction standpoint to a quality of work standpoint. The yard is beautiful, strike that, the yard is unbelievable. I have to take out old pictures to believe it is our yard. What is still hard to believe is the entire process has been very enjoyable. Your constant presence, availability and pride in work are to be commended. The passion you have for your work is enviable. I wish i could love bonds as much as you seem to love boulders, dirt and greenery. We would also like to address Eric. Not only is he a consummate professional and a master of his trade, but his pleasant demeanor and ability to truly interact with Kimm and the kids was admirable. Again, I would like to thank you for the experience as well as the finished product, and although I promised Kimm 'we are done with projects', after this experience and outcome, how could i not have you back for some front yard magic. I look forward to seeing and working with you both in the spring. Thank you again."

"You've created a "show-stopper!" Actually, a "TRAFFIC STOPPER!" If I am out watering, drivers slow down and call out to me about how great the landscaping is and several have actually pulled up to a full stop - and the people waiting behind them just smiled and nodded in agreement. If I'm not out I can still see them slowing down and looking - fortunately no accidents! People have parked their cars, walked to my front door and commented about the transformation you and your talented crew have accomplished. Dog walkers, joggers, neighbors: everyone is exclaiming about my little house and how wonderful it looks. It oozes "Curb Appeal" and I am thrilled.

You, Chuck, have been wonderful to work with. Prompt about getting plans to me, responsive to my likes and dislikes, encouraging, and you never once said "no" or "it can't be done." You figured out it, gave me a careful estimate, didn't blink when i added more boulders to create a level area for my flower garden, and made suggestions for enhancing the overall project. You were here to start and wjhen you said you'd be here and you finished the job ahead of schedule. You were personally engaged every step of the way.

In addition to using a wide array of plantings to create color and texture, you paid careful attention to what didn't show - the pitch of the new walkway so water (and ice) won't sit, the underground drainage away from the house and good topsoil - no fill. Even the mulch is good looking, natural, and organic, adding to the health of the trees and shrubs.

And, a word about your crew. To a man - and I had six plus Eric most days - they were courteous, helpful - showing me how to water in the plantings and sharing their expertise. They even posed for me when I showed up with my camera to record their progress. Most of all, they took great pride in their work. And that pride was very justified.

Even today - two weeks later, I am still getting compliments. I get a lift everytime I look out my window, or pull into my driveway. "Thank You" doesn't seem quite adequate for the amazing transformation you have achieved. Please know that I am very grateful. And please call upon me if I can help you in any way. "
