Our Team

Our team includes Certified Landscape Designers, Certified Landscape & Nursery Professionals, Horticulturists, Stonemasons and a Certified Tree Expert.

Our Scope

Our projects range from small “city” gardens to large estate properties. We’ve consciously decided to remain a family-operated business… large enough to handle any project, but small enough to ensure personal, customized care for each client.

To maintain our high standards, we own our own 18-acre nursery where we personally control the growth and culture of trees, shrubs and perennials best suited to thrive under local soil and weather conditions.

Our History

Caliper Farms was founded in 1987 by Vinny DiMeglio. Born on the beautiful Mediterranean island of Ischia, near Naples he brought with him an appreciation for classic gardens and architecture. Vinny also brought with him his expert skill at stonemasonry, extending a family tradition.

Angelo DiMeglio joined his brother in 1991, after studies in horticulture and business management. The brothers selected the name, “Caliper Farms” for their business to reflect their belief in careful and precise workmanship.

Hard work and reputable service led to success, and in 1997 they purchased their current 18-acre site in Belle Mead. Today Caliper Farms continues to grow and develop, with the goal of improving our business, our clients and our community.

Testimonials

“We have been so pleased with our garden’s face-lift that we are also using Caliper Farms for our pruning, weeding and general lawn and garden maintenance. Our yard and garden have never looked better! John and his crew do a wonderful job.”

“My wife and I want to personally thank you for the beautiful hardscape and landscape design work you did for our property. The bluestone walks and patio area in the front, side and back of the house are grand and exquisitely designed. We especially enjoy the unique design of the back patio with the incorporation of the stone grill built too match the stone on the house.

You did an excellent job of designing a 120 foot long stone wall in the back yard to create an interesting visual look from the back patio.

We are very grateful for your expertise in designing a perfect solution to a difficult elevation change on the garage side of the property. We enjoyed working with you and appreciate the expertise and creativity you demonstrated in designing and building our landscape.”

“But I must return to the pond!

Tom designed it in such a way that it is the focal point of our yard, yet it can be seen from our living room, kitchen and kitchenette – making it a year round attraction for the family.”

D. B. Belle Mead, N. J.

”Our experience with Caliper Farms has been exceptional. We have been extremely satisfied with their expert craftsmanship and attention to detail on the job. They transformed our ordinary backyard into a beautiful outdoor living area.

Our jobs have included a comprehensive landscape design, installation of a multi-level patio, sidewalks and stairs, 2 walls, and plantings of trees and shrubs.

We highly recommend their work, from the landscape designers to the construction crews.”

“From the day I called Caliper Farms, I felt that the staff at Caliper cares almost as much about my garden as I do. Tom came out to walk around our property with us, and took notes on all of our priorities for the garden.  The work has been done on time and with attention to detail; the pricing has been fair, with no hidden costs; and Caliper has stood by their guarantee to replace plants that don’t survive the first year.  Our garden has never looked better!  Thank you, Caliper Farms!”

J. & M.

” The services provided by Caliper Farms were excellent.

From the first visit to discuss the design until the delivery of the landscaping we were provided with customer focused service and with high level craftsmanship skills.

The selection of plants and trees in combination with the layout of a patio has was blended nicely with the wooded area around the house.

Furthermore all timelines were met as agreed in the planning. In conclusion we received superior value for the investment made.”

“ I just wanted to tell you that yesterday as Joe and I were sitting in the backyard we commented on how exceptionally attentive you have been to our property this year. You have taken ownership of it as your own and it shows.

Further, as we were sitting there I mentioned to Joe that the only thing more I wanted to do was clear some of the dead branches off the lower parts of our trees. Well, low and behold, this morning there were your men clearing the lower branches of our trees.

Once again, thank you for your attention to what you created as a most wonderful yard.”

L. R. Belle Mead, N. J.

“ When we think of Caliper one word comes to mind, trust.

We trust them to design a wonderful plan.

We trust them to execute it beautifully and we trust them to be there for us year after year to help us create spectacular gardens.

They treat their customers like family.”
