"Soon after buying our first summer home in East Hampton, we realized we spent much more time outside than indoors, and wanted the outdoor space to be the focal point of the experience rather than the inside. Our house is a gathering destination for our family and friends, and we wanted to create an outdoor living space that could be both relaxing and entertaining. And fun. After meeting with Bill D’Agata at Pembrooke, we were sold on the value of one firm managing both the design as well as the construction of the entire project, rather than a piecemeal approach, especially given our primary residence was two hours away in Manhattan for most of the construction and we wanted one point of contact accountable for everything. Pembrooke took the time to understand exactly what we wanted out of the outdoor experience and incorporated our high level vision into a comprehensive, detail-oriented design plan. We sought a complete transformation, so the scope was massive: rip up and replace a dated vinyl pool with a gunite pool and spa; build a large pavilion with three distinct “rooms” – an expansive kitchen and sports bar, a dining area, and a living area with outdoor fireplace; add a bath house with bathroom, changing area and outdoor shower; clear for and build a tennis court; re-shingle the main house, add window trim and replace the gutters; and surround it all with beautiful landscaping. The function was as important to us as the form, and Pembrooke designed it to be harmonious. We are self-described perfectionists and are very picky when it comes to results. Throughout the construction and beyond completion of the project, Pembrooke demonstrated a very high quality of work and commitment to getting the job done right. They kept us informed from the beginning of the process to the end, and gave us their honest opinions. Their employees were professional and nice. Where there were issues to deal with (as there inevitably are for any type of construction project), they solved them. Bill, and his partner Chris Hall, delivered an amazing finished product, and I would highly recommend them for any outdoor project. Now my family has an outdoor living space that no one wants to leave. Our friends and family prefer relaxing in our back yard over going to the beach. And we have enjoyed the outdoor space well beyond the Summer into the Fall (…watching three different football games at the same time outside by the fire!). We are looking forward to enjoying our house with our friends and family for years to come."

"It was a truly wonderful experience working with Bill D'Agata and his team at Pembrooke Fine Landscapes. Bill designed and managed an extensive renovation and landscaping project of the front and backyard at our summer home. The project included, among other things: Demolition of existing sheds, removal of existing overgrowth and plantings, design and construction of two pool cabanas, design and supervision of the construction of our luxury gunite swimming pool and spa (with Pebble Fina, honed and customized bull nose coping and glass tile), masonry work (including seat wall, gate entry columns, outdoor kitchen, and bluestone pool patio and walkways), design and planting of gardens, fencing, gates, and electrical upgrades. From the design phase to the completion of construction, Bill was responsible for all aspects of the project. He sat down with us on a regular basis constantly asking for our input and feedback. He was on-site everyday making certain that all work was done to his and our high standards. Unlike many contractors, Bill was always accessible, and responded to us almost immediately, day or night. We could not have been happier with Bill's final product, which totally exceeded our expectations. Needless to say, Bill D'Agata and Pembrooke Fine Landscapes come with our highest recommendation."

"Our situation was fairly unique. We had a beautiful existing gunite pool, a wonderful patio and backyard. Our home has been in the family for generations, and we know we had very specific needs for us and our extended family. We also had tight zoning restrictions. We wanted a 75 infinity edge lap pool, a spa, waterfall, an outdoor kitchen, fireplace, outdoor shower, and patio. Bill sat down with us and took us from point A to point B. We worked together on design, positioning, type of stone, pool tile, Pebble Tec surface for the pool/spa, outdoor appliances and grill, fencing... you name it, and Bill had suggestions and answers. Pembrooke took the plans, acquired the needed permits, removed our existing pool and patio and built us the most wonderful backyard. Today, I am able to use the pool for training, enjoy the fireplace on cool nights, and entertain family and friends in the most spectacular setting." Anthony D.
