FR Review:
Leaning towards traditional and classical designs, Conte & Conte’s landscapes take cues from architecture of the sites in which they work. Noted for working with the existing plant material, principals John Conte and Kimberly Conte often save and transplant what is already present in order to keep an established feeling in their designs. According to John, “one of the best compliments I get is when people tell me, ‘It looks like it has always been here.’” We’re told that Conte & Conte designs often use native plants and field collected stone.

John Conte is a licensed landscape architect in New York and Connecticut, and he is also a licensed arborist. Besides the two principals, the business has five employees: a landscape designer, two design associates, and two administrative professionals. The firm will handle bids and has experience acting as part of a team to negotiate planning/zoning, wetlands and association rules. Though they are not LEED certified yet, they are conscious of conservation and can bring in LEED certified professional if necessary. Conte & Conte is experienced in designing outdoor kitchens, fireplaces, gardens, ponds, patios, driveways, swimming pools, fences, tennis courts and maintenance plans. They will also source pots, furniture and outdoor lighting when the job calls for it.

Cost varies according to the project. Conte & Conte is practiced in doing substantial work and complete an average of fifteen to twenty-five jobs a year. The company charges under three different models in accordance with the size of the job. For larger projects, Conte & Conte charges a percent on construction cost that is on par with other high-end landscape architecture firms. For smaller jobs, they charge either a high hourly or a lump sum fee.

Representative Client Comments:
“John started out by building a tennis court for me my home, and when the project was finished the tennis court looked like it had always been there.” “I have a stone house, and John was able to match the original stone.” “I was so impressed with the work that I hired John to redo the wetlands and pond area for us.” “He removed the invasive species and put in plants that would be better for the bird life.” “His design work was prompt. John always sent PDFs of everything over email.” “He showed us 3D renderings to approve before he went ahead with everything.” “I ended up spending more than I wanted to spend, but that was because I was so impressed with Conte & Conte that I just kept wanting him to do more.” “He’d be the first person I’d go to in order to make any further changes to the property.” "I've worked with John multiple times."
