Editorial review from Citysearch 2/17/2014

We are first time homeowners and a little inexperienced in landscaping and contracting work in general. Our Heights bungalow had a huge overhang that extended off of the garage and covered up the entire backyard, which effectively hindered us from using what little backyard space we had. We wanted to have someone that was able to remove the overhang and create a patio area that we could use to entertain and relax. We explained to Kevin that we wanted to maximize our limited space while keeping costs in check. \r \r The design put together by the landscape architect and Kevin maximized the space, and Kevin came up with a plan that included keeping or reusing the existing materials and provided us an outdoor space that would become an extension of our house. Throughout the process Kevin was very detailed, communicated any changes in plans or costs in a timely manner, and moved quickly to complete the project. \r \r The project turned out beautiful. All of the work was done in a timely manner and very professionally. Kevin and his team were a one-stop-shop for everything (project included landscaping, demolition, construction and electrical work). Natures Realm created a lush area to enjoy for many years to come. Kevin took time to coach us through the care of the plants and explain everything he had included. We couldn’t be happier with the final product! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 1/29/2014

We have moved several times and have used many landscape designers/companies. I have never encountered anyone as thorough as Kevin at Nature's Realm. He takes everything into consideration when coming up with the design - from sun exposure, size/style of the house, maintenance to camouflaging less than desireable utilities. He educated us on and included us in the plant selection. The actual job was completed in a timely manner. Kevin even stopped over with some freeze cloth so we wouldn't lose our plants with the frigid weather! The front yard is complete - we are exicted to work with Kevin again this spring on our pool/backyard landscaping needs. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 7/20/2013

Extremely happy with experience and the outcome. Kevin was great at helping us through the whole process. We took some time to get everything correct, but it was our request and Kevin was more than helpful. He took into account what we needed as far as plants and our non-green thumbs. Very knowledgeable about plants for various climate zones, sun and shade, ground type and soil... very knowledgeable. He has also been helpful afterwards as we were working on watering and making sure the plants took to the ground well, especially as the planting was done in June among the Houston heat! Again, very helpful and would highly recommend. To copy the note of another review, you definitely get your money's worth. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 6/7/2013

After several disappointing visits from other landscapers we called Kevin based on his excellent reviews on Citysearch. \r \r We immediately liked how Kevin took the time to sit down with us and discuss the issues we had with our dismal backyard and pool area. He gave us very honest feedback (which we truly appreciated) as to why it looked that way and came up with some very interesting and creative solutions.\r \r After providing us with an amazing design, Kevin again came over several times to discuss planning and budget details to make sure we were comfortable with everything prior to starting. \r \r The end result exceeded all our expectations. The ugly brick look surrounding our yard has been transformed by pergolas, fencing to hide ugly pool equipment and a/c units and a gorgeous assortment of plants and trees. We now have a very inviting, lush, green area to enjoy. \r \r Kevin's approach was meticulous and very creative. His creation included a very appealing choice of plant grouping, terracing, raised beds and flowering plants in an array of colors that you won't find in your average backyard! Think passionflower, dragon fruit, olive trees, succulents etc. He was also very generous in sharing his in-depth knowledge of plants and gave us great tips and advice. \r \r Finally, I have to praise his invaluable assistant Cesar. He did some amazing carpentry, cleaned up our pool and hosed down our deck area every day after spending many hours in the brutal sun. \r \r The whole process was such an enjoyable experience \r and we highly recommend Nature's Realm. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 5/12/2013

\r We hired Kevin of Natures Realm to design our backyard after much Internet research. . As it turned out, he was also responsible for the massive landscaping of a house that I had often admired, just one block away. \r We live in the Heights and as is typical in this area, our backyard is small. We wanted a small pool though, aka ""spool"" or ""cocktail pool"" .  \r Kevin and his,partner Dwight transformed a boring square backyard into an inviting, lush and tropical space. Included in this design was not only the pool, but a pergola, a large espaliered tree, decorative wood boxes to house patio citrus trees, painted fences, mirrors and lighting. This is not a run of the mill backyard. This is a backyard with INTEREST.\r Kevin took me on a field trip to the nursery and we spent over two hours....him showing me options of what would work in different spaces and also as an opportunity for him to get a feel for what type of plants I gravitated toward. This would later prove to be invaluable as we got closer to the actual selection of planting materials.\r Kevin has a keen eye for design, color and balance. He is passionate about his work and strives for perfection. \r Our backyard is beyond what I ever envisioned. And I know Kevin is just a phone call away if I have questions or concerns about my plants in the future. \r Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to take a dip in my pool. ;)\r more

Editorial review from Citysearch 2/8/2013

Frustrated by another landscaping company (that shall remain nameless) not doing the job right the first time, I turned to citysearch to try and find someone who had a reputation of good work and fair pricing. Kevin and his crew were exactly that. He was able to fix the shoddy irrigation work that the previous crew had done and turned our backyard, which had began to look like a construction site, to the nicest part of our home. I couldn't be happier with how helpful and patient Kevin was during the process and he never made me feel like my abundance of questions (I was very hesitant from previous bad experiences) were of any bother. I hadn't budgeted to do everything I wanted, because as I mentioned I unfortunately went in with low expectations, but seeing what he was able to do with what I had, I can't wait to get them back out here the first chance I get to make our outdoor living area as functional and to look as good as our yards! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 12/26/2012

Not knowing where to look for landscape design I took to the internet and came across Natures' Realm and while I am careful trusting general reviews, given the feedback I had seen I decided to give Kevin a call. To start with I appreciated his approach to the project. Took many pictures, listened to our needs and then started working on a plan. While these projects can get out of hand from a budget perspective, he stayed within budget the entire project without sacrificing the final product. We are very pleased with the results and we just finished in November. Can't wait until spring and everything starts blooming. If looking for a landscape architect/designer he is definitely worth talking to. I would highly recommend him. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 11/17/2012

I looked at many reviews and had several landscapers over to my house before I stumbled upon Kevin with Nature's Realm. Most other landscapers were not able to envision anything other than the typical suburb model home look. I wanted something truly unique. Kevin gave me straight answers and realistic options from our first meeting. He and his wonderful mentor Dwight transformed my barren brick wall surrounded courtyard and pool area into a wonderful cottage-garden oasis. He put in just the right accents and pulled every thing together with beautifully unusual mosaic plant choices. Highlights include the pergola covered dining area, the wrought iron arches that frame the back flower beds and the beautiful vine covered walls. I really could not have imagined that this transformation could be possible. While Kevin's demeanor may be a little brusk, nearly every time he disagreed with me he turned out to be right. My back yard is now a piece of art. All who have visited our house have marveled in its beauty. I am sad as the weather gets colder that I will not be able to spend as much time out there. I recommend Nature's Realm wholeheartedly and the end product was worth every penny. I cannot wait until he comes back to do the front yard! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 10/18/2012

We weren't sure what exactly we wanted, but we wanted our yard to look nicer and an added area in the back to protect us from the sun during these hot summers. We didn't know of any places in our area firsthand (sugar land) so we just went with the place online that had the best feedback. We were worried that what we were after may not fit into what Kevin and his crew does, or that they'd all too busy to sit down with us and go over each option we had. Kevin did just that and what he was able to do surpassed our expectations for sure. He also had knowledge from plants and planting to all types of construction throughout all phases of project. And on top of being incredibly happy with the finished product, Kevin followed up after completion to make sure we were happy with our new backyard. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 8/7/2012

We bought a house in Richmond with a great pool but need for more privacy from neighbors. Kevin came out so quickly and suggested a plan which exceeded all of our expectations. The Cedar Trellis he had contructed for us is the shining star of the landscaping. Well Done!! Highly recommend. more

As Good As It Gets 7/21/2012

Trust the reviews! With everyone promising great service I took to the internet to find out who I should go with for redoing our back yard. I wasn't lucky enough to know someone first hand to recommend him so I had to trust what I read here, and I'm glad I did. Everything that can be said has been said here. The work is great, not good, the cost is fair, not cheap and the result is worth the time and money it takes. We had big plans, we redid basically everything we could think of in the back and even added some things we hadn't thought of until sitting down with Kevin (such as irrigation). I also can't go grocery shopping without overthinking every decision but Kevin was patient and helped me decide what he thought would fit best within our budget and what changes would transform our yard into a second living room (which it has already become now thanks to these outdoor ceiling fans). I will without a doubt use Kevin and his crew again when we renovate the front as well. I normally don't bother with reviews either, I don't even have an account at the places I get them from, but after seeing how helpful they were this time around I just had to come and share. Thanks!! more

Excellent Landscaping Job 5/1/2012

After reading many stellar review's of Kevin's work online, we decided to hire him to redo our entire front yard, as well as the yard on the north side of our house. This was a very large project and it took a little over four months to complete everything. Before the actual landsaping could be addressed, there were drainage and irrigation issues that needed to be addressed. First, the trim on our house was painted and new gutters were installed. The old front yard basically consisted of a semi-circle gravel driveway lined by a few pitiful beds of overgrown and dead plants. Almost everything in the old yard was removed, along with the second concrete driveway entrance. Pavers were used to install a new walkway from the street to the front porch and a new driveway. The irrigation system was updated and expanded. A wrought iron fence, gate, and electronic driveway gate were installed in front and a beautiful arbor with cedar fence were built on the south side of the yard. Beds of plants were arranged around two large circular areas of Bermuda grass. Kevin accompanied us to a local nursery to show us all the plant options that were available for our yard. We told him what we liked and he designed the beds around our preferences. We have tons of gardenias, azaleas, camellias, and hydrangeas, among many other beautiful plants. Gravel walkways were also included in the yard design. The narrow north side yard is composed of a gravel path leading to the back yard. The path is lined on both sides with many plants and gives an overall green and lush effect. A water fountain was installed against the fence on that side and can be seen through our dining room windows. Overall, the yard is really beautiful and we could not be more pleased with the way it turned out. Passersby are constantly stopping to compliment the yard and ask who did the work. Kevin is very knowledgeable and he still checks in with me to see how all the plants are doing and ask if we are having any problems. Although we had a few minor ups and downs during the whole lengthy process, I would highly recommend Kevin. He is very honest and works hard to ensure that your expectations are met or exceeded. If you can dream it, he can make it happen for you! more

Couldn't be happier! 4/20/2012

I'm one of the jealous neighbors that you will read about in previous reviews. After seeing how this crew was able to turn our neighbors dirt pile into what they did, I eventually gave in and asked who did their work. I was told how helpful Kevin would be, but I decided to see for myself. After we set up a date and time for him to come out he was able to let us know a wide variety of options of what we could do with our back yard. We wanted it to be quite lavish but still realistic and Kevin was able to give us a realistic budget and estimate on when we could expect the work to be done. He definitely follows the underpromise, overdeliver strategy because everything was even better than we had hoped for and done sooner than expected. Mind you, this wasn't an overnight job, good work takes time, but considering the reputation of many of the landscapers around here, I was blown away at how efficient and thorough his team was with their and our time. My only regret was waiting this long more

Even Better Than Advertised 3/12/2012

After speaking with several well-known companies in the area we felt Natures Realm not only had the best plan of what to do with our ideas but also had clearest vision of what we were trying to accomplish in our backyard. Their design was fabulous and we absolutely love our backyard now. Our friends and neighbors are already impressed and talking about copying parts of our yard to their very own. Kevin was honest and up front about costs and scheduling of the work and the time frame of completion and he and his team definitely delivered in all aspects, and they made sure we understood and loved every detail when they were finished, we couldn't be happier . At the risk of repeating myself I'll just say one last time that we definitely chose the right company for our yard. more

Made our vision come true 1/29/2012

We had a vision of a patio with a seat and natural gas fire-pit all made from natural stone. Kevin and his team at Nature's Realm built it and it came out even better then we had imagined. Kevin is a great guy to work with. There is no hard sale, he's upfront with the costs, offers his expert opinion and most of all makes sure the customer is completely happy. Caesar, his stone mason does extraordinary work with natural stone and is meticulous about cleaning up every day and especially at the end of the job. We could not be happier with the work and the finished product and would not hesitate to use his services again. more

Great All-Around Contractor 11/7/2011

Kevin was very up front and direct about what he was going to do and about the costs. His follow up and finishing was especially impressive, and our project ended very well and exceeded our expectations. Kevin emailed and called whenever there were issues or questions. more

Talented Landscaping Professionals 9/7/2011

We read Kevin's reviews prior to calling him. He soon came by and we laid out what we wanted: more

Great garden 8/12/2011

We recommend Kevin for a thoughtful and thorough approach to landscaping. It took time, more than you may think, but we love our backyard. We'd like to highlight the following: 1. Great design that met your our for a play area for small children and an adult zone with limited backyard space. 2. Thoughtfully designed patio with a water fountain and a pergola that fit and enhanced our home perfectly. 3. Rebuilt existing irrigation system, to meet the actual needs of the yard. 4. Worked within our budget. We set our budget early and tweaked the design and plan to fit. more

I Love My Yard 8/5/2011

I wanted a lot done and I wanted it done my way. I'm semi-anal by nature, so when Kevin couldn't begin work when I originally wanted I shopped around. Admittedly I only had one other landscaper come out and give me an estimate of what I wanted (a fairly big job, so I felt I had every right to be picky), but I just didn't feel like he cared enough about the work and I was just another job, a completely different vibe than I got from Kevin, so I called him back and we were able to arrange another day for him to come out and for us to figure things out. I mentioned I wanted a big job and was hoping he would be up to it, but also not bs me on what could and couldn't be done and then make a compromise in the 11th hour and upset me and the wife. We talked again about what I wanted and what I was hoping to keep my budget at. After drawing up some plans and an estimate I was eager to see if he could walk the walk as well as he talked the talk. We're talking a complete renovation of my yard and this living space here so I was a bit skeptical, just by nature. He asked that when we were done to write an honest review for him on the site, because word of mouth is where a lot of his business comes from. He didn't ask me to fluff it for him, nor would I have. I rely on yelp and citysearch for a lot of my choices now (it's how I found Nature's Realm), so being fair was all I was interested in. You've seen the 5 stars and I've given enough of the situation now, so let me start gushing about the work. The first we fell in love with was the fantastic patio cover for having a comfortable family area. This summer has been unbearable, so this was an absolute must for us. To have this patio cover is a game changer for our backyard, despite how minor it might seem. We also had outdoor lighting and a fountain installed as a centerpiece of our yard, just as the early design plans that he showed us indicated. Lights and a patio cover hardly seem like something to swoon over, but when you add them to your yard, you'll understand. The entire design was just absolutely incredible. It met our needs for a large patio to entertain and a spa with easy to care for our beds and plants. I'm not young, but I'm hardly old, though I still wanted some guidance on how to work everything after it was installed, before I even began to ask Kevin was ready to show me how to work everything and made it simple to understand for me and my wife, so either of us can work it now. It was clear that Kevin had the technical knowledge for all the plants and planting to all types of construction throughout all phases of our project. I never felt like he was learning things on the fly, I really felt at ease once I started seeing everything start to come together, and that's such a rare thing for me to experience. He even came back out for a follow up, after completion, to make sure everything was as it should be and that we didn't have any further questions. Should we decide to add more to our yard (I'm thinking outdoor firepit!) then Kevin is definitely the landscaper I'm going to call. He's truly transformed our yard for us, which we liked spending time in before, but now we just adore it. I recommend him to anyone who even mentions redoing their yard now and was actually eager to write this review. more

Landscape Makeover Artist 6/28/2011

Prior to choosing Nature?s Realm I had met with a couple of other landscaping companies that were unable to help me understand how they were going to allocate the money that they were suggesting I spend on my backyard. In the meantime, I was able to observe a backyard transformation that was going on at my next door neighbors that was being done my Nature?s Realm. I met with Kevin who explained his company?s philosophy: listen to his client?s objectives, design a plan that incorporates them, take a hands on approach, be flexible, stay small and appreciate the outcome. Kevin was honest about when he could start and how long the project would take and pretty blunt about how much it was going to cost (as a result, no surprises). I met with him and described what I was looking for. I wanted an area that could serve and entertain a large number of guests (20-30) in a small backyard in the Heights with an outdoor kitchen to boot; not just any kitchen, but a complete kitchen that I could use anytime of the year, rain or shine. Kevin brought in his architect and his first drawing absolutely blew me away. It was beyond my expectations (and beyond what I initially wanted to spend). I know that I could have asked that the plan be modified to suit my original thoughts of price, but the vision was so exciting that I signed him up immediately. The project was slow, but methodical and well thought out. Kevin?s crew is small, but very skilled and thoughtful. The end result was absolutely spectacular and beyond my original expectations. My friends and family have been absolutely blown away with the transformation. Thank you Kevin. I will take care of your baby. more
