What Our Clients Say

Created an archietect plan for our entire backyard project including pool, landscaping and hardscape. Listened to all of our needs and created our outdoor oasis. Has been available as needed to consult on smaller projects after the main project completed. Highly recommend


Hiring CST Design Group was the best decision we ever made about our backyard. Craig took into account everything my wife and I asked for and came up with an outstanding design for our pool and landscaping. He really went above and beyond what I expected from him and he eased us through the entire project from start to finish. When friends come over they are truly blown away by the resort feel that Craig created.


From beginning to end Craig Termotto was wonderful to work with. Our project was a whole house landscaping and pool remodel that spanned 2 years due to "Sandy" and after delays due to waiting for permits we finally enjoyed our outdoor paradise this summer. Everyone involved with our project,mason,landscapers etc worked together To bring the plans Craig drew to fruition.


CST Design Group was a pleasure to work with in designing our backyard paradise including new deck, firepit, outdoor kitchen and bar plus a gorgeous in ground pool. Craig always listened to our thoughts and comments and enchance our ideas with great suggestions. The end result is amazing and the whole family enjoys it.

Ginny Dotzauer

As an Architect and Builder, I hired Craig to design the exterior landscape for multiple residential projects. He is my first choice for all landscaping needs. Craig is professional, knowledgeable, down-to-earth, and easily adapts to project requirements including budget and style. I have dealt with many people with large egos throughout my career, and Craig is not one of them. It was always a pleasure working with him.

Rafael R. Da Silva, AIA

CST Design Group is an exceptional team to work with. Project goals, objectives and clients needs are always clear and concise. Information provided to achieve the design intent is always worked through thoroughly and all elements of are taken into account to create the clients vision. The team assesses schedules, a reasonable timeline and Craig always follows through with a design to meet their expectations and budget requirements.

Craig helped completely transform my property into an incredibly comfortable & beautiful space. He is professional, creative & knowledgable & I would recommend him without hesitation. (Craig recommended that I stain the wooden vegetable boxes in the photo a dark color, almost black, but I have not done that yet)


This past spring and summer I worked with Craig to create my dream backyard. His expertise in design and how to run the project was second to non. He was extremely conscience of our budget and met all our deadlines. Also, he was a great buffer between us and the pool company. I would highly recommend him to all my friends and I look forward to working with him again in the future on phase 2 of our project.

Lori Dalin

We hired CST design for a major renovation of our property. We knew some things that were must haves, but no clue in how to implement and make it flow property. CST was able to take our thoughts, add in their own and help us build the backyard that we all love. We highly recommend them for their patience and profesionalism.


Saw CST Design Groups post on a Facebook group and was looking for a landscape architect. We met Craig and came up with a plans that fit into our lifestyle, property size, and the style of our home and what plants would do well at the beach. My husband and I have chipped away at the plan and absolutely love what Craig put together for us. Our property looks amazing in October...can't wait to see it in the spring. Thank you CST Design Group.

Kimberly Rey

Craig and I met by accident. I was interviewing pool companies and landscape design companies trying to figure out where to start on our backyard project when one of the pool contractors introduced me to Craig as one of the landscape architects he consistently works with.

Lauren Kushner

Craig, with CST Design Group, was the main reason our backyard renovation project turned out so great!

Eric Luehmann

We worked with CST Design Group to design a beautiful landscape for our home. Our property needed an overhaul and Craig was able to develop a plan that could be completed in stages. I must say, I absolutely love our yard! From our new deck with an outdoor kitchen below, to our in-ground pool with its safety cover, to all the plantings around the property - I love all of it.
