Custom, creation, transformation, specialization, originality and endless options come to mind when describing the services provided at Magaletta Design Environment in Parsippany.
With 25 years in the industry, business owner Matthew Magaletta of Florham Park knows how to transform any property or backyard into a sensational yet functional space that carries with it that “wow” factor with any glance of the eye. Magaletta Design Environment is a full landscape design, custom pool builder specializing in outdoor kitchens, full masonry work, decks, outdoor lighting, lawn maintenance, waterfalls and just about everything for outdoor properties.
Magaletta Designs is not a “typical” landscaping company.
“There’s a lot of landscapers out there,” says Magaletta. Anyone can cut lawns or plant bushes. “People call me when they want their properties and backyards to stand out beyond the rest. When they want to wow their neighbors, that’s when they call me in.”
Involved in landscaping since he was 13, Magaletta started out cutting lawns for neighbors. He worked with his neighbor who was a landscape designer.
“I loved working outside,” explains Magaletta. “I took a liking to it,” and continued throughout high school and college. His experience and passion for the landscaping industry “just grew and grew and grew,” he says.
“I have the eye for it,” he adds. “Everyone has their niche in life; this is my niche. I can create anything and turn it into a work of art.”
Unlike other landscape companies, at Magaletta “We specialize in custom designs for our clients,” he says. To ensure that customers like the project that is planned, Magaletta provides a 3D video design to the customer.
“We show them a 3D design,” so they can see what their house will look like on the outside when the project is completed.
While other companies offer a 3D video, Magaletta’s “specialty design is quite spectacular,” he says.
Most of Magaletta’s client base is for private homes in Morris and Essex counties but he has done some industrial work such as the landscaping and design at Park Savoy in Florham Park.
“We work where the client wants us,” says Magaletta, adding that it will travel even further like to South Jersey if requested.
No matter the locale, “every job we are doing is a custom project,” he says. “We custom to customers’ likes and wants.
He uses all kinds of products and equipment, all different patios and paver stones. All of the lighting work is LED; “that’s the norm now.”
Working in the landscaping business has been enjoyable for Magaletta.
“What I enjoy the most is going to my client’s house and transforming their properties to showcases in the neighborhood. I feel proud that my signs are on their properties. I become personable with clients; they become my friend.”
Homeowners will not be disappointed contracting with Magaletta for all of their outdoor property needs.
“We are a reputable company with over 25 years of experience,” says Magaletta. “We are honest, we are knowledgeable and you will have an owner, myself, on the projects.”
For the month of September, Magaletta is offering three different promotions: 10 percent off any landscaping construction job; $150 off landscaping design of property; or buy 10 LED lights and get three free.
