We think you’re soon going to discover that ELITE Landscaping is unlike any other landscape, construction or design firm you’ve ever worked with. If the photos on this website haven’t already convinced you of that, then your first face-to-face consultation with designer David Katz most certainly will!
BEFORE WE START:
Most typical landscape companies will show up at your home, nod their heads as you describe what you want, and then say, “OK, let me get you a quote on that.” No creativity. Just taking your order.
We don’t do that. Instead, we’ll listen to your ideas and desires and hopes and dreams for your property and your lifestyle. We want to know what you really hope to accomplish. How do you see yourself using this space? How does that fit with the plan for the rest of the home? What’s the short-term goal? What’s the long-term plan?
Then, on the spot, we’ll share with you our vision of how you can have exactly what you want, plus more than you ever expected.
We may sketch it out for you on a piece of paper. If it’s outdoors, we almost certainly will mark it out with a can of marking paint. Most importantly, we’ll describe to you in great detail exactly what we see. Then we’ll give you a good ballpark estimate of what it’s going to cost. You’ll know in an instant whether our ideas and our company are right for you.
So while the other guy is back at his office trying to make his drawing look as pretty as possible, we’ll be moving full-steam ahead on your project.
DURING THE PROJECT:
Two things you should know about what it’s like to work with ELITE. First of all, you’ll be dealing with some nice, professional people. Our crews will show up on-time or early, and every one of them will be wearing a uniform ELITE Landscaping shirt. When they leave at the end of the day, everything will be as clean as we can possibly make it.
The second thing you should know about ELITE is that we’re a “total ownership” company. No matter what is required to complete the job, we’re going to take care of it. You won’t have to call other people or other companies to find a painter or electrician or carpenter or anyone else. We’ll handle everything.
Throughout the time we’re there, you should experience nothing but the utmost in courtesy and professionalism from all our people. If you ever have questions or concerns, you can ask anyone on the team, or call our office.
WHEN THE PROJECT IS FINISHED:
Unlike most builders, we’re not going to disappear after the job is done. If you ever have questions or concerns about any of the work we’ve done for you, please let us know. We’re always just an email, a phone call, or text message away. Whether it’s a flower, a sidewalk, a swimming pool, or a new building, we’ll do what we can to keep your experience “Beyond Expectation℠.”
ELITE was born out of a passion to give homeowners a product that is Beyond Expectation℠. From the simplest of plantings to the most exotic and complex backyard oasis imaginable – it has always been our goal to find ways to give you more than what you asked for, and delight you Beyond Expectation℠. That’s our philosophy for you. A quick glance through our ridiculously long list of testimonials will bear this out. Homeowners consistently tell us how happy they are, and how the project turned out beyond their expectations.
The ELITE Promise
We also have a philosophy with regard to our projects. We consider the design to be absolutely critical. A great project is about more than the individual pieces that go into it. It has to “fit” and “flow” and come together with the overall plan for the site. It has to function properly and not create problems.
For example, any good builder can engineer a rock slide to be safe and fun. Some of them can make it beautiful too. But precious few have the expertise to pull it all together, so not only does it deliver water to the pool as one would hope, but more importantly, it should look natural (not just a pile of rocks), as if it’s been there forever. It must be designed with a proper manifold system (not just 1 or 3 delivery locations from which water spills) so every stream of water flows as naturally as a mountain stream. It should function without losing water (which we know is a common problem and sadly believed acceptable). At the same time, we want the surrounding plantings to be as low-maintenance as any plantings can be. That’s The Land of ELITE way.
And of course, any builder can put some nice new plants in a fresh garden area. But we take this very seriously. When we design a garden or any other planting area, we’ll choose from a wide variety of different species with different heights, shapes, colors, and, most importantly – different blooming cycles. We’ll take the extra time to make sure it’s going to look good next spring, next summer, next fall, and 20 years from now. And, of course, we always want it to be as maintenance-free as possible.
Nice elements, good complements, and quality workmanship are nothing without great design.
When you meet our team, you are likely to experience the enthusiasm of people who are doing what they love. Our enthusiasm is contagious, which is why at least half of all our work is from repeat business and referrals.
We hope viewing the work we have done for others has excited you as it has so many others. We welcome the opportunity to share our vision, expertise and excitement with you. Feel free to contact us any time; We’ll be here like we have been for over 43 years, ready to go Beyond Expectation℠ for you.
