Every landscaping project in New Jersey has the potential to reflect a personal taste and style. Combining a designer’s eye, an architect’s detail and nature’s pallet, every patch of grass and pile of dirt can be made into something extraordinary. Joe Monello had this vision 28 years ago when he established Monello Landscape Industries, LLC. For nearly three decades, Monello Landscapes has continued to uphold the values of innovative artistry and attention to detail that clients have come to expect.


For over 25 years, Monello Landscape Industries, LLC have specialized in RESIDENTIAL and COMMERCIAL LANDSCAPING projects in New Jersey and out of state projects such as Massachusetts. Our projects come in all shapes and sizes. From retaining walls, to outdoor kitchens, fire pits, snow and ice management, commercial site work, and other beautiful, hardscape designs. The foundations of Monello Landscapes Industries, LLC lie on the experience of its staff. The team is headed by Joe Monello, who holds a Bachelor of Science from Rutgers University in Environmental Planning and Design, and is made up of employees that stay on top of the latest developments in the landscaping field. At Monello Landscapes, we strive to let our crafted works speak for themselves. Each home is treated as if it were our own, giving our valued client the guarantee of our full commitment to their project. We have outstanding referrals and testimonials that are available on request and we are proud to be a Better Business Bureau Accredited company.
