This is one of the best experiences I have ever had with any contractor. I was more than pleased with their work and it was of great value. Their customer service is exceptional as well. I would use their services in the future too.

Closer to Nature staff built a gravity style stone retaining wall, cedar fence, flagstone paths, natural stone borders, irrigation system, and new turf. They did a great job! Very fast and thorough. Transformed our backyard into a great play area for our kids. Quality work and a fair price. We couldn't be happier. Definitely recommend.

Closer to Nature did a complete remodel of our front yard and saved our home. Joel took the time and effort to do things right and his creativity is second to none, the transformation was simply amazing.
