"We have used Joe Davi for several projects at our home. His company is very professional and always exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend him and will continue to use Distinctive For the next project." -- Ron & Joan, Franklin Lakes
We met with Joe D'Avi and had some idea of how we wanted to enhance our outdoor living space. At that time we had the original patio and a small freestanding grill but it wasn't ideal. Within a few weeks, Distinctive came back to us with the ultimate outdoor living space. We were thrilled as to how he was able to make it all fit in a tight space while being able to preserve our existing koi pond.
The new outdoor kitchen is a show stopper! Equipped with an ice maker, searing station on the Lynx grill, fridge and plenty of storage. He also totally transformed our night views with the lighting system that now highlights everything we added. We can't wait for the warm weather to return to be out there again! We have already referred Distinctive to friends and family can't wait for the front yard project with them.

Simply put they are amazing in every aspect whether it was landscape hardscape lighting or our pool we couldn't be happier-- Springlake, NJ
When we were built our contemporary home in Chatham, we knew we had to find the right landscape designer who understood exactly what we were hoping to achieve with the exterior of the house. Our builders introduced us to Joe D’Avi and from the very first meeting he brought insight and exciting ideas to the project. He and his team put together a comprehensive and well thought out plan to tie our beautiful interior space seamlessly into our outdoor space. His ideas completely complement the architecture and style of our home. Distinctive Design met every deadline, adhered to our budget and delivered exactly what we hoped. We have already recommended him to friends and family and begun our second phase with him. -- Keith & Sharon, Chatham NJ
RELIABLE, GREAT WORKMANSHIP, EASY TO WORK WITH, COMPETITIVE PRICING. OWNER JOE D'AVI WAS PROMPT, RESPONSIVE AND PRODUCED HIGH QUALITY WORK AT VERY REASONABLE BUDGET. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. -- Annalisa Martinez, Chester NJ
I worked with Joe D'Avi from Distinctive Design & Management for landscaping at my home. We had recently put a new in ground pool in and needed the area to be landscaped. In addition, we upgraded our foundation plantings and had landscape lighting installed throughout the property. I was very happy with the level of attention and detail Joe provided - he even came back this spring to make sure all of the plantings were thriving. My project was probably on the lower end of the price range that his company typically handles but he did an excellent job of delivering an outstanding product while still remaining within our budget!-- Mark Palus
The company came highly recommended to us by our builder. We built a custom contemporary home, and we worked directly with Joe D'Avi. Joe is extremely knowledgeable and creative with landscape design, different plants, lighting products and more. He helped us achieve the modern look to compliment our home. We decided to phase our project to keep the budget manageable and Joe has been very helpful, attentive, quick to respond and just amazing to work with. He is a great project manager, and will work with you to deliver exactly what you're trying to create. We look forward to keep working with him, to complete the remaining phases of our project. --Disha Modi
Amazing design work and professionalism. The project was started and finished on time and the crew was meticulous with their work and very flexible. Joe is a true pleasure to work with and understands how to design a project based on your needs and budgets while still being creative in design and scope.

Joe was pleasure to work with. He's honest, warm, knowledgeable and responsible. His team completed a difficult and complicated project on time and on budget. I would highly recommend him for all of your outdoor needs.-- March 2015
JOE CONTRACTED THE RESTORATION AND IMPROVEMENT OF OUR BACK YARD PATIO AND FIREPLACE. THE WORK WAS EXQUISITE. JOB WAS DONE ON TIME AND ON BUDGET. HE WAS THERE OVERSEEING THE WORK REGULARLY AND WAS VERY RESPONSIVE TO ANY ISSUES THAT AROSE. PLAN TO USE HIM FOR A BIGGER PROJECT DOWN THE ROAD.-- MAY 2016
Joe D’Avi from Distinctive Desgin and Management is the absolute BEST! From our first meeting to the finished product he was so great and we are beyond pleased with our finished outdoor space. After interviewing a few different companies for the job we decided to go with Joe from Distinctive. Together with his expertise, we came up with a drawing and a plan for our backyard. We did a custom pool with waterfall and hot tub, outdoor bar and kitchen, fireplace, new patios, outdoor lighting and landacading. Joe handled everything from the beginning to the end. He was here everyday making sure the job was getting done exactly how we both wanted it to. He is a true professional. If you need an outdoor living space big or small, Joe is your guy! You will not be disappointed!.

Distinctive Design worked with us to create a gorgeous outdoor entertaining space complete with a wood burning fireplace, flat screen TV and an outdoor kitchen. Distinctive Design thought completely out of the box by drawing up a plan that carved out an area for the patio, fireplace and TV that made the space more private and cozy than the standard patio that many people build straight off of their deck. The stonework and granite countertops are beautiful and the appliances are top of the line. All recommendations made by Distinctive Design. In addition, we engaged them to add lighting to our yard and to do our landscaping. They are professional, responsive and I will continue to use them for any future services that we need and they provide!
