Our Team

Phillip Angelo Malfitano

Phillip Angelo Malfitano, a 34-year-old native of Jacksonville, North Carolina, has a deep-rooted passion for block and stone work, inspired by the historical architecture he encountered during his travels in his youth. His career in the landscape industry began at the age of 14, and he has since specialized in hardscape work since 2012. After returning to Jacksonville from Campbell University, he started working with Infused Elements in Cape Carteret, where he met his main helper, Miguel.

In 2018 Phillip founded his own business, Hardscape & Landscape by Design, focusing on quality work and exceptional customer service. Despite being a smaller outfit, his company is capable of handling both large and small projects, ensuring customer satisfaction through creative designs and transformative outdoor living spaces.

At nearly 50 years old, he is a dedicated and hardworking craftsman with exceptional talent in working with block and stone, among other skills. His creativity and ability to improvise on the job are unparalleled. I am grateful for his contributions and the close relationship we have developed over the years. Despite being reserved, his quick thinking and expertise in material installation have been instrumental in our business’s success.
