  • Marianne & David 2017

    Hi Ryan and Steve, Dave and I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you again for the excellent work you did on the landscaping of our newly built home late last fall.  Having never been involved in a project of this size before, we were a little overwhelmed with everything that had to be done but wanted to make sure that whatever we chose was going to be functional as well complimentary to the overall look of our new home.  We...

  • Steve & Mary 2017

    In 2016 Nature's Own did all the interlock patio work in our backyard based on our design. They had their hands full since the existing area was a total mess; over grown with weeds, loose flag stones and all sloping towards the house. They completely removed the mess, put in a solid base and then the stones. Truly an exceptional job. We love it. In 2017 we had them do the same in the front of the house, removed the old asphalt driveway, widen...

  • Sandra & Armando 2016

    In the early spring of 2016 we started the process of gathering quotes and interviewing prospective landscaping companies to help us with our dream garden. Ryan and Steve fit the bill. We explained our vision to create a Japanese style garden, with water feature, plantings in the oriental style and complimentary stone and rock works. These guys got it. The work was performed in a professional manner. The crews were well mannered accommodating...

  • Silvia - 2015

    Nature's Own was a referral given to me by a friend in the landscaping/nursery business and I am very glad I chose them to complete my driveway and front yard landscaping. Steven and Ryan were creative in their overall design and competitive in their pricing. Their pricing quote was very detailed and specific. They were always within easy access for discussion, replying quickly to a phone call, email or text message. Ryan and his cr...

  • Steve 2015

    Nature’s Own was an easy choice for us to make right from the start.  Their quote was done promptly, professionally, and competitively.  What put it over the top for us was Ryan Van Lochem’s customer service level and our sense of what it was going to be like to work with him throughout our project.  Going forward, he did not disappoint.  Although very professional, Ryan was also very easy going which he...

  • Chris & Jane 2014

    Since Nature's Own completed our major landscaping job during the summer of 2014, we have had two requests from different horticultural societies to feature our property on their Niagara on the Lake garden tours. Enough said. Steve and Ryan are consummate professionals who deliver a superior product and outstanding customer service. Their crew did an exemplary job, start to finish. Thank you all.

  • Margret & Patrick - 2014

    We are very happy with the work Nature’s Own did for us. The project was quite large and you handled it very efficiently. Everything was started on time and the crew stayed on site until it was completed. Ryan and Steve were easy to contact and dealt with any concerns immediately. We had dealt with a few other landscape companies in the past at our previous home, but Nature’s Own has turned out to be the best.    Sinc...

  • Angela & Gregg's Testimonial - 2013

    The summer of 2013 Nature's Own designed and completed a gorgeous backyard retreat for us on time, within budget, and on schedule. His crew is remarkably professional and courteous. They made excellent suggestions and Steve was very flexible to make minor changes as the project "evolved". We would highly recommend Nature's Own. Angela & Gregg Seddon

  • Sidney's 2014

    Nature’s Own looked after the construction of my Landscape in the fall of 2014. Here is some details about my experiences with them:    Cathy my neighbor recommended Ryan from Nature’s Own to me. Honestly, their quotes were very similar to the ones we got before from a few other companies but there was something that made me feel you guys were more reliable and honest. Your quote was extremely clear; I could clearly tell how mu...

    Thank you to Steve and Ryan for the exceptional work they did on our front walkway, and entrance steps. To Steve for listening and coming up with plans exactly as I requested and to Ryan for the execution of those plans. The work was done in a very timely fashion with everyone smiling and courteous at all times. It was a difficult confined space in which to use large machinery but all went well with not one thing being touched and the work ar...

    "Thanks so much Steve and Ryan for transforming my front garden, driveway and walkway into works of art! Absolutely everything exceeded our expectations. I loved everything about the proposed plan and no changes what so ever were required. Just wanted to let you know that the garden is even more amazing this year if that is even possible! I don't know what you add to the soil you use, but all the plants are that much bigger and so lush! I pla...

  • Liz's Testimonial

    "We would have Steven and crew back to undertake any future landscaping projects! Our backyard is amazing! There is a view from every window which entices us outdoors to enjoy our new landscaping. Nature's Own pays attention to detail, has great on going communication and leaves the worksite immaculate on a daily basis. Steven is an artist who "paints" with plants and hardscape materials. We are thrilled with the results!"  Liz

  • Nature’s Own looked after the construction of my Landscape in the fall of 2014. Here is some details about my experiences with them: Cathy my neighbor recommended Ryan from Nature’s Own to me. Honestly, their quotes were very similar to the ones we got before from a few other companies but there was something that made me feel you guys were more reliable and honest. Your quote was extremely clear; I could clearly tell how much it would be if I took out some parts so I didn't think there would be any “hidden charges”. We’d never had any landscaping done before we were sometime confused because I didn't understand the process. Cathy had said, “You are professional and she’s been happy with all the jobs you did for her”. So I decided to let you guys make some decisions. I figured your ideas would be better than ours. I didn't watch you guys a lot when you were working outside but I checked everything after you guys left. At first I thought it was slow until I talked to you. You answered my question with a very detailed plan and schedule and you kept your word. I didn't push you but you noticed my concern and told me what was going to be done first and last. It was really great because you understood what I wanted and what I expected. I remember I asked you about the driveway as I needed it to be done so we could park our cars keeping in mind we needed an extra parking spot. After seeing the skids of stone at the front yard and the finished driveway, we were extremely satisfied and the finished product was even better than we could imagine. I actually didn't even like the exterior stone color of our house until the landscaping was done. You made it look much nicer with the type of stone and colors that you selected. From then on, I decided to accept all your opinions as I began to realize Cathy did not mislead me in any way. Whenever I changed my mind on the plan, I just told you what I wanted and you could give me advice right away and you confirmed everything with me before you began every part. I believe your advice was very neutral as I've had some bad experiences with some vendors and contractors who tried to sell me something that I didn't want at all. You guys told me what was worth being done and what was not then let me make the decision. As I remember, I accepted all your advice because they were thought through and professional. You were always very courteous to us. Sometimes you wanted to talk to me but you didn't want to wake me up so you kept your head up looking at the garage to catch me before I left home. I must appreciate your patience. I had a contractor and electrician working in the basement so I could tell the differences. I had to tell the contractor and electrician every single part and give a detailed plan. I just told you what I wanted then you created plans for me. If only they could do their job as if they were doing it for their own homes as you did. You and all your guys had worked really hard and carefully. Honestly I think I got more than what I paid and I treat you all like my friends, friends that know me and understand me. You have created the best landscape that we could ever imagine. Also one last thing I must mention which is the most important thing to me is to make my wife happy. I have been trying for 8 years but you guys did it. Knowing and understand someone is not what money or time can buy. Thank-you for all your work, Sidney
