Landscape Construction Staff

Augie Alvarez – President of Perennial Gardens, has been involved in landscaping and landscape construction his entire life. Officially joining with his father in the late 60’s as a second Generation contractor, Augie began to grow the business one beautiful job at a time, establishing a reputation for impeccable creativity and problem solving. In 1972 Augie seamlessly took the reigns of Perennial Gardens from his Father and in 1978 began construction of the present building. Today, as the Landscape Construction projects have become larger and more complicated his time is spent meeting with Architects and overseeing all the day-to-day operations that make an amazing change to the Perennial Gardens Landscape Construction properties.

Sean Alvarez – Vice President of Perennial Gardens, has been avidly involved in the family business since 1990. Following the family passion, Sean has developed a keen eye for solving complex problems involving site work, scenic outdoor lighting and difficult property drainage issues. Often times, you can find Sean in a deep trench looking over piping, or making sure the architects plans are strictly adhered to. He’s never afraid to get mud on his shoes or dirt on his shirt. Sean takes Perennial Gardens into a third generation of artistic landscape construction. Sean manages and oversees many projects with precise attention to detail. He begins with an initial consultation with the client and offers experienced ideas and solutions for
any situation.

David Della Vecchia – Project Manager, has been with Perennial Gardens since 1997 and brings over 20 years of experience within the landscape industry. Dave is the in house project executive. Working side by side with owner, Augie Alvarez, and in direct coordination with renowned architects, builders and subcontractors, Dave is responsible for project management, estimating, procurement and contract administration, as well as, communication with Perennial Gardens field operations. This expert coordination generates a strong organization enriching the relationships between the Clients, the Architect, and the Construction Teams. Dave is a landscape architecture graduate from the State University of New York, College of Environmental Science & Forestry at Syracuse University and is an associate member of the American Society of Landscape Architects.

Stephen Alfano – Project Coordinator, has been a part of Perennial Gardens since 2000. Steve manages and oversees the daily operations of the landscape crews and various projects. His field experience is second to none and working closely with Dave, no detail is overlooked. Steve moves between many jobs; he follows-up and keeps track of many of the fine details so the crews can keep their timetables. He’ll even track the weather, a very important part of a smooth running operation. As a Perennial Gardens Team Member, he too begins with an initial consultation with the client and carries a project through completion.
