The service is first rate. Mr. Rosenthal listens, advises and then creates the landscaping of your dreams. He was extremely cost conscious and never attempted to push extras.Robert F.
Tom with Landscape With Nature transformed our backyard from a bunch of rocks and gravel to a beautiful area with a stone walkway, patio, and planters full of beautiful plants. He is very knowledgable about plants and obviously very passionate about his work. He strategically places each plant considering many important aspects I would not have thought of in deciding which plants should be used and where they should be placed. The yard turned out more beautiful than I had even imagined. We are looking forward to using his design plan and his company to complete the work for our front yard also.Kathy F.
Tom Rosenthal (Landscape With Nature) has developed four landscaping plans for homes that I have built and lived in. The plans were artistic in their presentation & detailed in their content. Types of trees, shrubs, grasses, & flowers were shown and clearly explained why each was selected for the location picked. Location of the sun (morning, mid day, sunset) soil type, lot size & house location, drainage & owner preference of color and other factors were also taken into consideration. Walkways, patios, pool location and, in my case, berms were installed near the pool to ensure proper drainage. Of equal importance was, of course, was the cost. This is an area that is discussed as you have the opportunity to go through the landscaping plan. Changes are made and alternatives are given as you work through the process so that when your ready to get started you know exactly what you are getting, what it is going to look like, & how much it is going to cost!! The whole process from start to finish is professional and pleasant! Tom Rosenthal is enjoyable to work with & I have always been more than pleased with the finished product!Richard H.
Mr. Rosenthal is a talented landscape architect. He re-designed the landscaping package provided by the builder. The result is just what we asked for and undoubtedly added value to our property. After seeing what he and his crew accomplished ,our neighbor also retained his services. Mr. Rosenthal prepared a detailed ,traditionally drawn plan which delineated every aspect of the design for a very nominal charge. He clearly indicated that we were under no obligation to proceed or proceed with anymore than we could afford. As for cost , we were probably less concerned about that aspect of the project than he was which is indeed a novelty. Finally,Mr. Rosenthal is a landscape architect,a degreed occupation,and not a pool contractor who throws in scrubs on the fly; the Austin area has more than a few examples of their handiwork. We take great pleasure in our landscaping which is more than we can say before we hired Mr.Rosenthal.Robert G.
"Landscape with Nature" (Tom Rosenthal) just completed a rejuvenation of our landscaping. The result is wonderful and completely meets our expectations. Tom met with us to discuss what we wanted, to make suggestions, and get our input on plant selection. His resulting plan was completely itemized, and the final cost came in UNDER what he layed out. His workers were very careful, polite, and knew exactly what they were doing. The final step was a walk-around to explain when and how to care for all of the plants on our property, not just the new ones he put in. LWN is highly recommendedBruce M.
When we moved to Austin in 2004, we bought a spec house with a huge raw backyard. We had Landscape With Nature design our pool-scape and re-create our backyard cedar jungle into a paradise! The current drought has been tough on Texas, but Landscape With Nature has kept us advised as to what we should be doing to maintain our beautiful back yard. We are totally happy to go out the back door every day!. LWN also designed our front yard, which is lovely as well. Overall A+Mary GL
Tom Rosenthal is an artist. He takes his landscape architecture work very seriously, and did a great job putting together a beautiful landscape plan for our house that met our budget, and looks great.Stuart D
