Welcome to PLANT


Caleb was a tremendous communicator from the moment we first inquired about a quote. After speaking to so many different landscapers and hardscapers, he was one of the few people who really listened to what we wanted. He worked with us to stay in budget and was able to offer some creative solutions to deliver a finished product we loved. Caleb’s team was professional, organized, incredibly nice, and two of the hardest workers we’ve ever seen. They are artists in every sense of the word and we couldn’t be happier with the finished product. We will be using Caleb and recommending him to anyone we can.Thank you!

Where to begin-- When I originally called Home Design, I spoke with Antoinette. She was so helpful and pleasant, my mind was made up to use this company providing that we were pleased with their ideas and proposals. Between Caleb and Ed, a beautiful design was created and a proposal was agreed upon. Work was started and finished on time. The installers (Miguel and Max) were unbelievable. I really enjoyed watching them from my window because they were always smiling and cheerful and made me feel happy. Caleb visited everyday and Ed several times to insure that everything was progressing smoothly. Before they planted, I noticed a few of the plants that I did not particularly care for. There was no problem, they replaced them with others. They were all very professional and eager to please. This was a very difficult installation, it was a huge hill and 20 tons of river rock (variable sizes) had to be wheelbarrowed to this hill plus 100 plants planted. When they finished, they cleaned the entire area. You would never know that workman had been there. I would definitely recommend this company. It's too bad there are only 5 stars, I would have rated them higher!!

Javon and his team did a phenomenal job with up and down lighting in our backyard. Given how much extra time we plan on spending at home, we felt it was a great investment!

We worked with Plant Design early this summer after buying our home. The team was booked out with little availability- but we were desperate to get a start on the work and they found a way to work us in. Javan came to our home; he was honest, direct, consultative and collaborative. We had a vision and he built on it; he gave advice we didn't know we needed. In addition to advising us on the patio we were looking for, he shared a broader scope need to address drainage and water issues in our yard. The result really exceeded our expectations. His team was friendly, professional and incredibly skilled. The quality of their work is exceptional. We have had a few things on the backend that needed to be addressed and they have been responsive and gone above and beyond to help us. Plant Design is a great company and we highly recommend them!

I cannot underscore the extraordinary experience with Plant Design Group. After meeting with several companies locally, I contacted Plant Design because I felt most just didn't quite understand the vision my husband and I had for our landscaping. As an avid fan of Carousel Gardens and the quality of their products, I was certain they would partner with a high caliber landscape design group as well. And indeed, did they!My experience was 5 star from the beginning. I was contacted 24 hours after my initial request. The associate I spoke with listened to the objectives of our project and budget. She asked thoughtful, inquisitive questions and paired us with a designer who often worked with similarly sized projects.Caleb was OUTSTANDING!!! He is a talented and knowledgeable designer who truly loves what he does. During our initial meeting, he listened to all of my ideas and immediately offered recommendations and a vision. He succinctly summarized what we spoke of and articulated our design ethos better than I was able to.He kept us well informed throughout the process and clearly communicated the timeline and next steps. I knew exactly what to expect and when the work would be completed.The design he proposed was perfect! Exactly what we had been aiming to achieve in our backyard - a quiet, serene place of solitude. He incorporated plants from our property into the design at my request and modified the varieties and made minor tweaks to the spacing of plants with no question, pushback or disagreement. Not the experience I've had with other companies. Caleb is truly focused on customer happiness!!When installation occured, it was completed quickly, efficiently and with no mess or debris. How does THAT happen when dealing with dirt!? The team was delightful, kind and appreciative.The results - breathtaking!! My husband and I kept taking breaks from our day to go in the yard and admire the work of the team.Regarding COVID - the Plant protocol requires everyone to wear masks and maintain distance when outdoors. I was most impressed by the follow up sessions which occurred over Zoom. Caleb shared his screen, we fluidly moved through the designs AND he even had a pinterest board prepared with the plant varieties. It couldn't have been easier!I could continue on and rave about the experience with Caleb and Plant Design Group. But, I think it would be better if you experienced it yourself. For those seeking a professional, accommodating, customer centric landscape design group - look no further. Plant Design Group is it!!!!

Caleb and the Plant team were excellent! From my first experience on the phone with Antionette, I felt that my preferences and budget were being listened to and accommodated. Caleb was incredibly communicative, always willing to talk things through and brainstorm new plant substitutes when we wanted adjustments. It took some time to get the last of our 4 plant varieties figured out but Caleb was never impatient or frustrated with us. The design was very thoughtfully put together to give us the privacy we were looking for - functional and aesthetically pleasing. While planting, the crew worked quickly and did a great job - even patching a bare grass patch in our yard, mulching an additional garden bed and leaving some extra river rock, none of which were part of the job they were hired for! Ultimately, this was probably a small job (new mulch bed and 10 plants along a fence) for Plant Design but they never made us feel like it was. The finished product looks fantastic and we’d hire Plant again in a heartbeat! So professional and responsive throughout!

I hired Plant to remove my old patio and design and install a new 900 square foot natural bluestone patio. I am very happy with the outcome. The entire Plant team is professional, detail-oriented, polite and responsive and they went above and beyond to ensure that the end result was just what I wanted. I have several additional hard-scaping projects that I plan to do in the next couple of years and I will absolutely call on Plant. I am looking forward to working with them again!

Highly, highly recommend! One of the best in our area! Javan and his team patiently and professionally worked with us to find a solution on a very challenging project. Throughout the process, they took the time to really understand what would work, what we wanted and then completed a flawless installation under some very challenging conditions. Cannot say enough good things about their professionalism and responsiveness. Highly recommend!

It was a pleasure to work with Plant Design Group for the “makeover” of our front and back yards. Working with us, they came up with a good design for both areas including a beautiful new patio. The construction went very smoothly, especially working in a back yard with difficult access for equipment. The crew were friendly and very competent and cleaned up the area each evening. Final cleanup and equipment removal at the conclusion of the project were well-done. A very satisfying project.

We had Plant Design Group redo the grass for our entire backyard and build us a new retaining wall. They were professional and hard working every step of the way. The job was completed quickly and efficiently. I can't recommend them highly enough.

Plant Design built us a beautiful back yard escape. Javan was very professional from the beginning of our patio design and was there overseeing our project until it was completed. Our project included a pergola, attached fire pit area, sitting wall and a rock garden. I am so happy with the way Javan designed the layout so that all the features fit together with such a nice flow. The plantings enhanced all the features and added color and a finish to the project. My wife and I sit out in our haven every day and enjoy the beauty of our backyard paradise. Thank you Javan and the great team for designing and building us such a wonderful addition to our home.

We have had plant design group do landscape on our house the last two years. Their team has been very professional and helpful. Caleb has been extremely communicative and responsive to us, helping with ideas, fixing things and generally being a pleasure to work with. This year with all of the issues with covid-19, the group has adapted well and we have still been able to effectively have the work done we wanted.We are very happy with their results and would definitely recommend to other. Thanks!

We approached Plant Design Group for ideas about how to repair or remake a patio that was installed 20 years ago, and we really had no concept of how we might create a different space to enjoy with family and friends. Javan and Ed first listened to us, and then came back with a concept that was well beyond what we could have imagined on our own. We had a patio...and now we have what feels like a "park", with space dedicated to dining and hanging out around the fire. From beginning to end, the experience was one in which we were told what to expect in terms of pace of work and process. The team that worked on site was responsive, respectful and quick to recommend ideas as the project evolved. Please feel free to contact us to come by and see the work!

Competent and kind - I had a water issue in my back yard for years. When it rained pools would form and make mowing of the lawn impossible because of the mud. Consulted with plant and had them grade my back yard. Did an excellent job and have helped make my back yard usable, rather than the swamp it used to be.

Ed and Javan were fantastic to work with from start to finish. Ed really listened and delivered a design that fit exactly what we were looking for both aesthetically and financially. We couldn’t be happier with our new pavilion and fire pit!

Working with Caleb from PLANT design has been a great experience! He was extremely patient with my many questions during my first planting season in a new home. He offered great suggestions. So far we’ve done a spring cleanup and we are so happy with the quality of how it turned out that we are exploring further projects. Highly recommend.Edited to add: we went ahead and did our patio with Caleb from PLANT design and I am so happy we did. It looks great, and addressed all my issues worrying about leveling and drainage. We got great use out of it already and I can tell the quality work that went in to it. We are very happy with Plant design and would work with them again!

PLANT Design Group at Shady Brook Farm improved the street facing view of the house addition - see before and after photos. I had requested flowers and boxwood plants to match the right side of the house. Also requested a larger plant to "hide" the air conditioner and propane tank at the side of the house from street view. Caleb suggested a deer resistant Schip Laurel for this. Caleb's team prepared the landscaping area, planted the Schip Laurel, Black Eyed Susan and Pink Coneflower perennials.I had also asked Caleb for a 1/2 yard of topsoil - to fill in various lawn areas. He not only brought the topsoil, but also seeded and starter fertilized the patch area.PLANT was responsive to my request for landscaping, provided suggestions, and delivered on schedule at the agreed on price.

New to the area and chose the local farm to help us with our mulching this year. Not knowing who's who and what's what. Couldn't be more pleased with the results. They were clean, efficient, friendly, and went above and beyond cleaning up our yard. Will definitely place our business with Shady Brook again, thank you for a job well done!

Very responsive, timely with appointments and delivery of a proposal, knowledgeable on what would work best for my given situation, took the time to address my questions, performed a high quality job, and circled back to me asking my opinion. Thank you Caleb and Plant Design Group.

From start to finish Caleb and Plant Design Group were just great to work with. Caleb came out and looked at the area that needed work, gave us his thoughts on what could be done, as well as a price estimate, and when he didn’t have an answer to one of our questions checked in with one of their landscape designers and got back to me in a very timely fashion with a response. When scheduling the work to be done Caleb made changes in his schedule to accommodate mine. The work was completed and they did a great job at a reasonable price. He was also great with my dogs and gave us some wonderful suggestions for hikes! Highly recommended.

The Plant Design Group was great to work with. Caleb presented a design that fit our budget and used plants that really blended in beautifully with our property. The work crew was fantastic. They completed the entire job in one day and left the property spotless. We are absolutely thrilled with how they have transformed our front yard. They have our highest recommendation.

Everyone at Plant Design Group was a pleasure to work with, and we were thrilled with the way our backyard renovation turned out. They went above and beyond, from accommodating our budget to making sure every planting remained healthy and vigorous. The patio was expertly installed, everything was done when stated and the whole process was very professional. I know we will be enjoying our outdoor space for many years to come. Highly recommend!

Thank you to Javan, Ed and Antoinette for making our front porch and landscape look beautiful. Javan and his team creatively redesigned our existing porch that was not constructed well when it was originally built. They had a lot of obstacles to consider and were able to create a solution that was beautiful, durable and within our budget. Now our porch has beautiful bluestone and was built to last. It gave our front entrance that WOW factor! Additionally, the landscape design is much more modern and free flowing and has plants that will bloom during varying seasons to keep it interesting all year long.The PLANT team has been extremely customer service oriented responding to my many questions and concerns. Thank you!

When we decided to invest in landscaping, we had an impossible list of goals....create a safe but equally beautiful and functional space for our child, please an opinionated couple with very different styles, and work within our budget.We interviewed several different companies before meeting Jonathan, Javan, and Ed from PLANT. They understood our vision and challenges, and created the design of our dreams! We continue to call them for other projects and recommend them to our friends and neighbors without hesitation. PLANT has found customers for life in our family, and we're incredibly grateful. You will not find more responsive customer service nor quality for your investment, long after the final tree is planted.

My husband and I moved into our home about a year ago, and the front yard looked like it had been neglected for some time. Outdoor living is important to us, so we were looking for more than just cookie cutter curb appeal - we wanted something unique and inviting, visually interesting (textures, layers, colors), and a yard that would grow into our dream garden over the years. This was also a large investment for us (both mentally and financially), so we needed a company that instilled trust from the outset. On top of this, we wanted a team that would work with us collaboratively over the years as we create our dream home. Needless to say, this was a tall order. After researching companies in both PA and NJ, we felt that PLANT brought a fresh perspective to the landscaping industry in terms of both approach and client service - and this proved to be true. From the first meeting, we knew that Ed Graziano was our guy - he really LISTENED to us as we explained what we wanted (and importantly, what we DIDN'T want!). Keeping both our style and long-term goals in mind, Ed presented an incredibly imaginative yet practical design. We honestly did not know what to expect, and yet somehow, Ed managed to blow our expectations out of the water. We also worked with Javan, who was sensitive to our budget and presented us with options that allowed us to choose where we wanted to put our money now, and where we could expand down the road. The rest of the process, from preparation to execution to finalization, was a pleasure. To say that our front garden has been bringing us endless joy would be an understatement.With all that said, a picture is worth a thousand words. Our before and after photos speak for themselves! We look forward to working with the PLANT team for years to come, and already cannot wait to see what they have in store for the rest of our yard.

Javan and his crew were wonderful. The garden came out as I had envisioned. They worked tirelessly for 2+ days to complete 3 large raised beds, cut out sod, lay a gravel walk and mulch the beds. I was most impressed with their professionalism and would highly recommend them.
