BEST POOL DESIGN WINNER 2007, 2013 And 2016!

Cipriano Landscape Design was established in 1989 as a custom landscape and masonry firm. Since that time, our stonemasons have installed over 200,000 square feet of natural stone. In 2001, we added custom swimming pool construction to our repertoire of services, commencing the formation of a complete, all-inclusive outdoor living solution. Today, our firm has blossomed into a 17-time international award-winning swimming pool and landscaping company.

Cipriano’s wide range of services and extensive experience provide the skill set necessary to construct some of the most complicated landscape and swimming pool designs in the industry. Some landscape and pool companies have recently added pool building or landscaping to their business model and have to learn as they go; Cipriano has proven experience with the most advanced and intricate landscape and swimming pool features. For example, our staff has installed all of the tile on our glass tile swimming pool projects. As you will see in our portfolio, we have built fiber optic pools, vanishing edge and perimeter overflow pools, and all-glass-tile pools with unmatched style and flawless detail.

In 2001, CLD was awarded a masonry bid in Englewood, NJ. The original bid was for 8,000 square feet of a custom blended fieldstone veneer. After being awarded the bid, the stone vendor decided to double the cost of the stone. To get the job done, Chris Cipriano bought a stone splitter and made his own custom blended veneer for the project. CLD still uses that very splitter to this day! As a result of Chris’s adept problem-solving attitude and ability, that Englewood job turned into a 2.5 million dollar project, and CLD found themselves firmly rooted at the top of the NJ luxury masonry & landscaping industry.

In 2004, the 15-year-old landscape company was joined by Licensed NJ Landscape Architect William Moore (NJ License #823), who has since led the landscape architecture team at Cipriano Landscape Design. The combination of design and construction services provides a safe, thorough, and convenient process for making your dream backyard design a reality. In 2005, CLD purchased a 10-acre tree farm in Mahwah, NJ. Cipriano Farms grows mature specimen trees, perennials, and grasses that CLD installs on many of their pool, landscaping, and masonry projects.
