Cipriano's landscape architects earned awards of excellence for NJ landscape lighting, swimming pools, and masonry.

Once again, the landscape architects at Cipriano prove their award-winning versatility across a range of categories.

On December 15th, 2011, the New Jersey Landscape Contractors Association held their annual achievement awards dinner in West Orange, New Jersey. At these awards, New Jersey's leading pool, masonry, and landscape companies received recognition for completed landscaping projects of varying sizes and styles. Last year, the landscape architects of Cipriano Custom Swimming Pools and Landscaping of Mahwah, NJ earned twelve awards within five categories. This year, the New Jersey landscape architecture firm took home five awards for three different landscape and pool design projects. Cipriano's highly acclaimed landscape architects received one award of excellence for masonry, two awards of excellence for inground pools, one award of excellence for landscape lighting, and one award of merit for landscape lighting. Once again, the landscape architects at Cipriano prove their award-winning versatility across a range of categories.

The landscape architecture team earned awards for residential inground pools and landscape lighting for a project in Mahwah, NJ. The luxury swimming pool, designed by NJ Landscape Architect Bill Moore, includes every possible amenity. Some of the pool's key features include a sun shelf, beach entry, four-season spa, waterfall, grotto, 45-foot waterslide, freeform infinity edge, sheer descent, and fiber optic pool lights. The four-season spa is plumbed separately from the rest of the pool to allow for winter use while the pool is covered. The 45-foot slide extends all the way down from the top of the waterfall into the lower pool beneath the infinity edge. Inside the grotto, fiber optic lights and irrigated planting pockets were added. For added convenience, fun and excitement, the NJ landscape architects included three very special amenities. First, the pool features a 2,000 gallon per minute swim jet system that is strong enough to kayak against. Next, the pool's infinity edge features anchors on either side where a projection screen can be placed for unique backyard movie viewing. Finally, in order to accommodate the large number of amenities, the pool has iPhone-compatible pool controls that give the homeowner complete, remote control over the outdoor living space.

The award of excellence for masonry went to Cipriano's outdoor patio design and renovation project in Upper Saddle River, New Jersey. The multi-level natural stone Quartzite patio features a regular pattern and stone veneer to match the architecture of the home. Because of spatial limitations on the renovation project, the concrete slab for the patio was poured over the top of the home and into the back yard. On this award-winning project, the landscape architects at Cipriano demonstrated their ability to renovate and enhance a patio in a way that fits seamlessly into the existing space. The patio material, stone pattern, and stone veneer all contribute to match the architecture of the home and the style of the existing pool.

Last but not least, the landscape architecture firm earned residential pool and landscape lighting awards for a small pool and landscape in Paramus, NJ. The unique, two-tiered pool and landscape demonstrate the creativity and skill of Cipriano's landscape architects. The small, sloping yard in Paramus, NJ proved quite challenging in terms of space; in order to make room for the pool and spa, the spa was built above the pool between two planting beds. The pool was built on the back yard level with a glass tile water wall connecting the pool and spa. In addition to the unique layout of the pool and spa, the landscape architects also provided them with matching glass tile accents at the waterline, steps and benches. On two sides of the pool, the glass tile waterline extends to the upper level to create the spectacular water wall. The pool and landscape earned a landscape lighting award of excellence for its multiple LED pool lights and fiber optic rope lighting along the top of the water wall. At night, this pool, spa and landscape shine in a wide array of colors.
