David Katz ELITE Landscaping, Inc. R.R.#6 Robinson Lane Wappingers Falls, NY 12590 Dear Dave: We have been intending for some time to send you this testimonial. Of course, one fairly can observe it is all the more a testimonial that we are doing this 2 1/2 years into our working relationship with you -long enough to see the landscaping plan “grown in, ” and long enough to have had some hiccups along the way, which you readily and professionally addressed. There can be no doubt that there has been an utter transformation of the property. The pool is beautifully integrated into its surroundings. We will admit to having been skeptical on the front end of the project but, when all was said and done, the various changes to the pitch and grade of the yard that seemed jarring in the “construction” phase now appear subtle to the point of imperceptible. The changes to the approach to the house were dramatic as well, and hard for us to visualize in the abstract, but we are very happy with the end result. Every time we pull up the driveway (particularly at night, when the lighting you installed frames the picture), we are struck by how much your redesign of the front yard brings out our home’s charm and warmth. Finally, and importantly, the members of your staff have always been friendly and polite, and eager to address any small questions or problems that we bring up with them. Not only do we get a person (as opposed to an answering machine) when we call your office, we get Barbara -ever cheerful, always diligent and wonderfully easy-going. Paul and George and their crews are similarly friendly and responsive. They work quickly and efficiently and never fail to clean up when the day is done. It has been a pleasure having them work around the property. Please do not hesitate to give our name as a reference. Sincerely,


David: LOVING the patio to say the least. We have received many compliments on the beauty and workmanship. I am out there almost every day swinging in a hammock we put up. Friends love having a drink out there on a Friday night. There is always an open invitation for you to come join us. Thanks so much for checking in with us and I’m sure we’ll be calling again in the next year or so. Hey, The LAND OF ELITE sign is still up. People think we own the business or something. Sincerely,


Dear Dave & Staff, Some words of thanks for a job well done concerning our extended deck and patio. We are delighted to finally have a place to entertain and enjoy the seasonal weather. Your gift of creativity has been a blessing to us by captivating our ideas with a perfect design that compliments our taste and lifestyle. Your pleasant manner and enthusiasm made us relax and confident about the outcome of the project. We felt comfortable with your staff who really worked hard and was always polite and respectful. Your work has caused lots of talk and admiration and we are feeling very proud and satisfied in choosing you for this project. Thanks again for a job well done. Sincerely,


Scott & Nadine Einiger Montebello NY David Katz ELITE Landscaping Inc. RR # 6, Robinson Lane Wappinger Falls, NY 12590 Dear David: Our family is thrilled with the design of our beautiful circular drive and landscaping. It has truly enhanced the front of our home and we really love the artistry you brought to the project. We look forward to working together with you on many projects in the future. We also owe you a special thank you. We so appreciate how you went out of your way to make sure everything was done correctly…even on the work of others. Our builder correctly laid the pipes around our home only because you identified the cause of the problem. You didn’t have to get involved but you did and we thank you. Sincerely,


Just wanted to thank you again for all the time and effort you have already put into my yard. Every time you do a project for us it reminds me again why I “patiently and good-naturedly” (HA HA) wait for you. You always take the time to listen to my concerns and ideas and then implement them beautifully. Even with the mud, no lawn and generally shabby condition of the area in which you are working — the trees look great. Already they provide a natural screen from the street and I know that in no time they will feel like they’ve always been there! Andy’s’ first comment upon returning home was that the trees look great and “Dave is amazing at what he does.” Thank you for everything and Happy New Year to you, Debbie and the kids. See you Monday… I assume! Sincerely,


Dear David, I spoke with Debbie today and understand the charges, will send a check out to you tomorrow. We both want to thank you for the creative design and workmanship on this project, it has really enhanced the look of our home. We appreciated your attention to detail and professionalism as well as that of your staff. We are now ready for the winter and I actually am looking forward to trying that snow blower! By the way, the up-lights look awesome. All the best,


Dear David, That sounds like a good plan; I’ll cut the lines this weekend. Thanks for your patience and efforts on this project: I just want you to know that the landscaping and the pool in particular bring me quite a bit of joy and satisfaction. I was out there the other night and the moon was full, and mist was coming off the fountain. The landscaping makes a perfect setting for the sculpture, which looks absolutely magical at night with the lighting. The lighting makes the whole experience of viewing the landscaping, the tress, and bushes wonderfully mysterious and beautiful in a way that is a delightful surprise! Thanks,


David, To take a page from your book – Plants grow over time. They will always be with you and each year they will grow and mature more. They are something I see every morning when I wake up and see every night before I go to bed. You will always be part of the family!!! I want to say it was the best investment I ever made – at least from an enjoyment perspective – but Stacey would get jealous!! ( maybe it was because my best investment because Stacey still continues to cost me every month.!!!!) Yea, Yea. I know The pool will top it all. –I’ll save you the e-mail to remind me about the pool!!! We will do the pool as soon as I can have enough to pay for it. The market is above 10,000 and business continues to be great. I know you need much advance notice, so when I have a better time frame you will be the man I contact. I’m going to write a letter for your web site or just for you so you can use us as I referral source. If you ever have any one sitting on the fence that needs to talk to a doubtful client- Stacey was more doubtful than I-please have them call us. Remember when we said, how about just doing the front of the house, if it turns out good we will do the back.? You have special talents and visions and you deserve the best. So to Mitchell, Shellee, your wife ( Debra?) and you all the best.


David, Hi, it’s me !! Jackie Przytula………..just wanted to drop you a line to let you know that we still get a smile on our faces each time we pull up to our house. Of course, some of that is because we are still thrilled with our new house and its location, but a lot of it is because of the wonderful landscaping job that you and your men did here last summer. I honestly almost never come home without thinking how much I love the way things turned out. The winter was especially beautiful with all of the snow and everything still looks so nice even after such a long and snow filled winter. I hope that things are going well for you and know that you are probably gearing up for your very busy season. I had asked Don to email you a while ago to just say hi and tell you again how happy we are, but he is up to his eyeballs in work, teaching, and taking courses, so I decided to write before too much more time elapsed. We would love to have you and your wife over for coffee one time, if you were free for that at some point. Thanks again for everything and I hope that you send prospective clients to see your handiwork from time to time.. Sincerely,

Jackie Przytula

David, Just a quick note to tell you that the courtyard and gate look terrific! Thanks so much for doing such a good job. I hope you saw the Library Newsletter – we used one of the photos of you hard at work! Thanks again,
