Our professional approach to your project

Natural Path Landscaping: Creating A Natural Work of Art Right Outside Your Door

Tom Kraus was the most professional, attentive, knowledgeable and communicative contractor with whom we have ever worked, and over the years, we have hired many. He was always prompt when a meeting was scheduled; he wrote one of the most detailed and professional contracts we have had presented by a contractor, and the final work is beautiful. We couldn’t be more pleased.

Landscape Design Services from Natural Path Landscaping will make your property more enjoyable, functional and beautiful, while enhancing its value. At Natural Path Landscaping we start every project with a plan taking into consideration what nature offers, what our client desires and our ability to blend them into the final result, a natural work of art right outside your door.

We apply a professional approach to your landscaping design services. Unlike other designers, we don’t start digging up your property without a plan. We start each project with an initial meeting to discuss your needs and any special requirements or concerns. At our first meeting we take measurements and photos, and discuss various options that you have. All of this information is then turned into a concept with pricing to establish a rough budget.

We next create scaled drawings showing what we are going to do and the choices you have in the materials that we will use. The final step in our approach includes measurements of slopes and curves and then the price is finalized.  All this upfront planning means we virtually never exceed the contracted price.

“Our scaled drawings and our plan is our roadmap to creating the landscape design you want.”

Our Guarantee: Our installations include quarterly inspections for the first year to assure that the job meets customer expectations. Many projects also carry our 10-year guarantee on materials and workmanship.

Our Landscape Design Services Also Include:

Garden Design and Installation
Let us design and install the garden you've always wanted, with the colors and plants of your choice that grow well in your sun/shade mix and soil conditions.

Walkways and Patio Design plus Installation
A beautiful walkway can make a wonderful first impression or can add definition to your outdoor space in subtle, understated ways. And a well-designed patio provides a 3-season extension to your home.  Proper positioning of your patio will play a large role in determining how often your patio will be used. 

Entrances and Steps Design plus Installation
Look around at the older homes in your neighborhood, and they will likely serve as a testament to the beauty and durability of entrances and steps constructed of natural granite.

Wall Design and Installation
Walls can define a boundary, hold back soil, provide a terrace on a slope, or offer seating along a patio. Your wall should also deliver a strong visual statement, and will only become more beautiful as it withstands our tough weather year after year.

Driveway Design and Installation
Why not make your driveway a beautiful part of the landscaping? Concrete pavers, available in a wide variety of colors and shapes, can bring beauty, durability and functionality.

Pool Area and Deck Design plus Installation
Although we do not install swimming pools, we can certainly help to make them special with a fine deck around the pool. We also design elevated decks with clean profiles, transparent guardrails, substantial vertical posts and a clear understanding of the proper relationship between a deck and patio.
