Our History

Our history – our landscape design philosophy, what we do, and how we do it.

Who We Are:

The Farina Company is a family owned business located in Port Washington, NY. My father Martino Farina started the company in 1960 when I was just a young boy. Growing up I admired my dad’s commitment to excellence, his intense work ethic and his love for horticulture. He has since retired but not before proudly passing the baton to me. I am honored to continue his legacy.

Like my father, I have a strong commitment to provide exceptional service and quality workmanship. To achieve this I take a “hands on” approach and work closely with my crew inspecting all masonry and landscape projects. I advise and oversee from the largest to the smallest of jobs and I even routinely visit weekly maintenance service of your property ensuring that your lawn and shrubs remain healthy and vibrant. Any issues, I am just a text or phone call away. WOW – you can’t beat that kind of service! So if you are needing a complete landscape renovation or perhaps you want to focus on a small section of your property and want to beautify with a perennial flower bed, or annual plantings for lasting color, you can trust that your landscaping needs will be properly met.

What We Do:

Although we are primarily a landscape design company performing all types of outdoor services, we are also specialized in stone construction. Our masonry is the result of careful workmanship with a focus on getting the job done correctly. Beware, not all companies share this same philosophy. All too often companies cut corners resulting in a slew of problems that require continuous repairs. This is never the case when you hire us. For example, when we’re asked to install a stone driveway, the driveway is done on a dry-packed cement base which sets the level and locks the stone in place. Then to ensure a superior finishing touch we cement grout the joint to help prevent movement and annoying weeds from popping up between the stones. It’s this extra consideration that sets us apart. For many other jobs, we use Eco-pavers that solve most village run off ordinances. We also work with an assortment of brick and stone for jobs that require a more creative touch. Do you have grading issues or problems? Need retaining walls? How about a waterfall or pond to compliment your natural landscape? We’ve been enhancing the properties of our Long Island customers for many years and look forward to helping you with your next landscape design project.

How We Work:

Sometimes the best results are when we get the customer involved. Plant selection is an important factor in any landscaping design project so if the client is involved from the beginning they can better visualize and understand exactly what they’re getting. Questions regarding stone patios, shrubs, trees, grass, whatever it is, these concerns are answered early on in the planning stage, yet another part of our philosophy that sets us apart.

More of What We Do:

Over the years we have built solid relationships with many of our loyal clients and they have asked us if we could do small renovations; we gladly say yes. Large construction companies are too busy chasing after larger jobs and when they do agree to tackle a small job like yours, they will charge top dollar in order to make it worth their time. You also run the risk of waiting for them to fit your little home improvement¬†project¬†into their busy schedule. My experience and expertise in general contracting ensures that you’re getting great quality work at the very best price. For general construction windows, extensions, siding doors, bathrooms and kitchens, and much more, consider us for your next home renovation project.

I hope you will take the time to browse this website to learn more about our services. I take great pride in our accomplished work and hope to have the opportunity to WOW you. You dream it, we’ll create it.
