Jay Eriv started GROUNDS KEEPER in 1973 with one goal: keep every client for life.

Our management team has over 100 years of experience creating naturalistic landscapes. Our 3 supervisors have 73 years of total experience in the landscape industry and 63 of those years are with GROUNDS KEEPER.

All of our support employees have been with us for at least 10 years. Our landscape architect has over 10 years of experience designing beautiful, naturalistic outdoor living spaces for our clients.

Over 80% of our work comes by referral and from our clients who ask us to complete additional landscape projects for them.

We are most proud to have been voted Best in Show at the New Jersey Flower & Garden Show for nine consecutive years from 2005 to 2013.

We are also Certified Aquascape Contractor (CAC).There are an estimated 4,000 landscape contractors in New Jersey and less than 20 have been recognized by Aquascape.

When you hire us you know that you will be getting a professional installation. You won’t have to wonder if your crew has the experience necessary for your project. We pride ourselves on giving our customers and potential customers advice - not a sales pitch.

If you want to create extra outdoor living space with a new patio, gazebo or outdoor kitchen, or simply improve your landscaping by adding or replacing walls, walkways, pathways, ponds, pools, landscape lighting or four season plantings, we can make your dream a reality.
