Five Awards Presented to New Jersey Landscape Architects

The New Jersey Landscape Contractors Association celebrated their annual achievement awards in West Orange, New Jersey, on December 15th, 2011. This year, the NJ landscape architecture firm received five awards for three different projects.

Cipriano's renowned landscape architects were presented with two awards of excellence for swimming pools, one award of excellence for masonry, one award of merit for landscape lighting, and one award of excellence for landscape lighting.

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

The landscape architecture team won landscape lighting and residential swimming pool awards for its project in Mahwah, NJ. A few features of the pool include a four-season spa, a sun shelf, waterfall, grotto, beach entry, 45-ft waterslide, sheer descent, freeform infinity edge, and fiber optic pool lights. Furthermore, the pool features a 2,000 GPM swim jet system for kayaking. The pool's infinity edge is provided with anchors on either side where a projection screen is mounted at the backyard for watching movie. iPhone-compatible pool controls were also been installed to have remote control over the outdoor living space.

Cipriano's patio renovation project in Upper Saddle River, NJ won the award of excellence for masonry. The natural stone Quartzite patio features the home’s architecture.
