Hi. My name is Matt and I am a very happy and lucky individual.  Every day I get to do what I love to do, practice Landscape Archtecture, the creation and shaping of spaces and places for use and enjoyment..  For almost thirty years I have worked an 80 plus hour week thrilled to meet clients, greeting new challenges, providing design solutions, going to nurseries, selecting plants and materials, supervising construction, and achieving real, on site goals.

I never know what the next job will be but I know the solution lies in listening.  I listen to the client and to the site.   I follow a professional process and methodology learned at Rutgers – Cook College back in the 70’s.  When you are planning to landscape, landscape with a plan. Site analysis and sound design practices are cornerstones in the process. Keep it simple, less is more.  Never fight the site and avoid the contrived.   Integrate form and function.  Be open minded, innovative and creative. 

I get ideas from the world at large.  Unigue answers to every day needs come from observing.  Observing and mentally cooking it down does indeed foster new avenues of approach.  Simply driving around brainstorming, looking at art, going to museums,  leafing through books, attending seminars and collaboration with my clients continue to provide new insights addressing individual, personal needs.

Operating an environmentally conscious, award-winning design/build company, Kiefer Landscapes Inc., for over twenty years we offer a wide range of design and installation services. Established in the early 1980’s, we have grown steadily by focusing on residential projects with attention to detail and service. We take pride in being professional and innovative. We execute traditional, long-lasting construction and planting techniques, working judiciously with your landscape investment dollar.

We don’t mow lawns or cut down trees but WE DO EVERYTHING else!

Kiefer Landscapes Inc. looks forward to the opportunity to provide you with solutions to your landscape needs, challenges and projects. Your job is our priority.

The essential factors in guiding our landscape designs are mature size and appropriate spacing of plant materials, minimal maintenance, astute plant selection, sequence of bloom and complimenting the architecture.

We look forward to working with you and designing IDEAS THAT GROW!

I am the proud father of three wonderful children, dearly love my former wife of 27 years, coached recreation sports for 26 seasons, support the community through teaching night school education and have done work at many local schools and Eagle Scout projects. I enjoy sports, fishing, birdhouse construction, sculpture and water colors.  Working on Quark Park has been a rewarding experience.
