When we moved to Chatham in 1993 we hired Steve to cut our grass. As Steve’s business grew so did our needs, particularly during the 4 1/2 years we lived outside the country while retaining ownership of our Chatham home. We had the trust and confidence in Simonfay to ask them to take care of the entire property in our absence and we were not disappointed. We have also completed several large projects with the Simonfay team during our 19 year relationship. One particular project required lots of preparation and engineering input, including obtaining the permits needed to meet the zoning laws of the Borough. The project incorporated a small private “escape” behind our home that includes a water element, which Bill Dennis and crew brought to fruition. With Bill overseeing the project, I knew we were in good, capable hands. Bill typifies the people that work for Simonfay. We know that when we use Simonfay Landscaping their research will be thorough, they will be accommodating to our input and ideas, and all the employees will be a pleasure to have around. Most importantly, the end product will be of the highest quality and beauty. Over the years, we have come in contact with contractors that are great at starting a job, but the completion is almost always the problem. Completing a project from beginning to end and ensuring that the customer is completely satisfied is one of Simonfay’s many strengths.

We have been highly satisfied Simonfay Landscape customers for over 10 years. Customer communication is excellent whether by email, phone or in person. We spend time with Steve annually to review landscaping needs for the season and his follow-through is terrific. Our lawn and property consistently look pristine. Following storms, Simonfay is very responsive in checking for damage, clearing branches and cleaning up. In fact, after last fall’s crazy snowstorm, Simonfay was at my house first thing the next morning to assess the situation. There was no need (or time!) to even place a phone call. Steve and crew were already on it…as usual! The Simonfay staff is always courteous, timely, and thorough. They go above and beyond to provide excellent service throughout the year. We originally hired Simonfay for snow-plowing because we have an oil and chip driveway that requires special care and they do just that. Simonfay is one of the best contractors we have ever hired. They care for our property as if it was their own and you can’t ask for more than that!

Simplicity, quality and service are three words that come to mind when I think of Simonfay Landscaping. Simonfay simplifies my life and cuts down on the calls I have to make. With one email or call, I can discuss lawn care, snow removal, holiday decorations, spring flowers and fall shrubs. Working with the same crew year round means that I save time and don’t have to repeat directions multiple times throughout each season. The quality of expertise that comes with Simonfay certainly means expert lawn care of the highest standard. But more than this, Simonfay means customer service to me. Steve Simonfay has helped our property recover from an extensive renovation and has worked alongside and coordinated with other contractors on our property in a proactive and positive way. His quick responses to my questions and calls and his attentiveness to all details, large and small, have won my loyalty. As a longtime customer, I have always been impressed that my needs come first, again and again. We certainly feel that our property is in the best hands with Simonfay Landscaping.

We just wanted to thank you guys for the tremendous work you did at our house. Simonfay Landscaping did a remarkable job transforming a once barren property into a magnificent piece of landscaping. We constantly get compliments on the overall landscaping, patio and fire pit. We have been very impressed with the quality of your work, your engineering expertise and the artistic beauty of the landscape and patio design. The backyard patio and fire pit are far and away our favorite part of our house. Thank you.
Michael & Joanne Rosenberg, Chatham
We have used Simonfay Landscaping since we moved to Chatham 21 years ago from NYC. Steve and his team have cared for our lawn and garden, installed patios, walkways, and flower beds. Family and friends have always commented how beautiful our landscaping looks throughout the year. It has been a pleasure watching Steve’s business grow from a small landscaping service to a much larger and successful company.
Linda Lynch, Chatham
Mary and I were delighted with the work done by Simonfay. You were always accessible, responsive and kept us informed about the status of the project. Your team that worked on the site was professional and respectful and we were truly impressed by the way the site was left after they completed their work for the day. The new patio is like an extra room in our house and we now have a look that a British friend compared to an English garden.
John Friedman, Chatham
After completing a yearlong renovation to our home, we were left with a beautiful house surrounded by mud and rocks. The Simonfay landscape company transformed this construction site into an attractive, functional landscape in under three weeks. The team walked us through every step of the design to select walkways, retaining walls, lighting and plantings. Everyone was a pleasure to work with and the transformation was dramatic.
Michael and Teri Kennedy, Chatham
We have used Simonfay Landscape Services since moving into our home several years ago. Each year our lawn looks better and greener. Simonfay also helped us with some landscape construction in our backyard which has added an extra quality of beauty to our property! If we ever have a question about something Steve returns our phone calls right away. He is very personable and very accommodating to our needs. Aside from maintaining our lawn, Steve has helped us find an electrician, a plumber, a roofer, and whoever else we have needed when problems have arisen. With one phone call to Steve, help is quickly on its way. Moving from Manhattan to the Jersey suburbs is a hard enough adjustment. Having Steve Simonfay there to help us with the problems and questions that came with new home ownership made our transition much easier.

I had a hunch that our backyard might just be big enough for a tennis & sport court. Steve Simonfay and his team made it happen for us.
Prior to my first meeting with Steve, I did a fair amount of research and thought I knew what I was getting into. After that meeting, I realized Steve and his company were the right guys for the project. As plans were being finalized I was very impressed with Steve’s willingness to bring in outside expertise to refine our plan. The execution of the plan was almost flawless without any cost overruns. Both Steve and his right-hand man Bill Dennis were available to me on their blackberries at all hours, and were a constant presence at the project.
Steve Simonfay is an honest and thoughtful guy, and his team is very professional. I would give Simonfay Landscaping an unqualified recommendation to anyone who is interested.
Lex Maultsby, Summit
We needed a “yard lift” so we met with Steve to describe our vision and he gave us terrific ideas which we incorporated into the design. There were several elements including a new shed for garage overflow, deck, front walkway, fencing, lamp post, numerous plants, up-lighting, and relocating our Japanese maple. Everything came out as planned and we couldn’t be more pleased. The work was done on schedule with Bill, our project manager, overseeing everything and keeping us in the loop throughout the process. This was money well spent and prices were very fair considering everything involved. We highly recommend Simonfay Landscaping.
Lisa & Bill DeRosa, Chatham
My experience with Simonfay has been first class since we first met 6 years ago. Steve and his entire team are my first call no matter what the project or problem. I continue to be impressed with their true ownership of the work they do. I highly recommend Simonfay and look forward to our continued relationship in the future.
Dave Silber, Short Hills
I used Simonfay Landscaping Services to build a retaining wall in my backyard and a new walkway in the front. I am VERY satisfied with their services. They are very professional, deliver excellent service, arrive at the job site on time, and address my questions and concerns in a timely manner. I am especially impressed with how respectful they treat their clients, and always put their clients’ needs first. Whenever I have a question, they are just a phone call or e-mail away. Steve Simonfay and our project manager (Bill Dennis) were such a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Simonfay Landscaping Services to any homeowners who want a smooth and stress-free project.
Kathy Chen, Chatham
Steve has earned our trust over a more than 10 year business relationship by hiring the best people, taking great care of our property, and being proactive about our needs.
John Holman, Chatham
We hired Simonfay Landscaping shortly after moving to Chatham in 2000. Steve and his team have helped us transform and maintain our property ever since – lawn, trees, walkways, plants and drainage. Steve is responsive and courteous, and delivers his work on time, on budget and on spec every time. We attribute a significant portion of our property value to the quality and care we have received from Steve and his team.
Anne Altizer, Chatham
We are delighted with the landscaping work you and your team have done over the last three years. You helped transform our backyard–an eyesore overrun by weeds and dead trees–into a picturesque lawn, complete with a beautiful patio and new paver walkway. As a result of your weekly servicing and maintenance, our front and back lawns have never looked better. Your work continues to exceed all of our expectations, and your customer service and attention to detail is second to none.
We have been using Simonfay Landscaping for over 10 years now. When we built our home 4 years ago, they helped us design and plan a beautiful property with plantings and walls that really complement our home. Simonfay is reliable and trustworthy and always goes the extra mile – we don’t have to even ask! The workers are all friendly and helpful both in the field and in the office. They are very organized and professional and if they can’t do something they are willing to find someone else who does and even work with them to make sure its done the way we want it. We highly recommend Simonfay!!!
Kim and Brad Pedell, Chatham
After having all the landscaping done on my property by Simonfay, I can honestly say that working with professionals such as them was a positive experience. The manager assigned to my job was courteous, attentive and knowledgeable. The whole staff was extremely pleasant and helpful but above all Professional. I found their pricing to be slightly above the competition, but in the end the old adage applies “you get what you pay for”. And I’m very satisfied. I feel when I walk into my back yard; it is the quiet, beautiful oasis I have always dreamed of thanks to Simonfay!
Tobey Valenoti, Chatham
We are Steve’s longest standing customer as he started taking care of us when he was 16 years old. Over the years he has done excellent maintenance/cleanup work for us, in addition to some major landscaping work. Everything has always been well done! It has been fun watching Steve grow his business from the days when his father would help him cut our lawn to watching his fleet of dump trucks and other equipment grow. Through it all, Steve has never lost his enthusiasm or his customer focus. We are proud to be one of his many satisfied long term customers.
John Berger, Chatham
I am very satisfied with the work that Simonfay did for me and would enthusiastically recommend their services to others. During the design stage, they worked with me and offered alternatives. They identified some of their previous job sites so I could see their work and visualize how it would look at my house. Simonfay’s workers were excellent. The subcontractors that they used were excellent also, and Simonfay actively managed their subs. My contact at Simonfay checked on the progress of the work numerous times during the day and was readily available by cell phone at any time. The few issues and concerns that did arise were quickly resolved to my satisfaction. Simonfay is a top-notch service provider!
