On budget! and far exceeded all expectations!  We have no reservations in recommending Naturscape for any project you are considering. The only contractor we have ever worked with who delivered!!! time and time again.

Sarah & I would like to thank you and your crew for the work performed at our property. We expressed our ideas for a finished pool deck & landscaping, you listened to our ideas, made some recommendations and the end results are more then we hoped for.  You and your crew were professional and a pleasure to work with. In this day and age, it’s difficult to find a company that is professional and takes pride in their work.
You transformed our yard into an outdoor space that my family and I love and are proud of. We couldn’t be more pleased and would highly recommend you and your crew without hesitation.
Wayne & Sarah Foley

It’s plain and simple... I love working with Bob Whyte. Bob has an excellent eye and "lots of know how" which makes working with him very gratifying.

Naturescape was recommended to me by a neighbor who is in the construction field himself. Their driveway, walks and retaining walls are beautiful and so are mine!

I liked Bob's easy approach, educational manner and enthusiasm from the very start. He was not at all intimating for me as a woman to talk to regarding the construction details and costs.

Bob and his crew built a beautiful paver driveway and walkway for my home. The work transformed the appearance of my yard.

I was at work during the day so I wasn't around to watch the work's progress but my neighbors commented daily how impressively organized, hard working and efficient his crew was. At night when I got home from work I was delighted with the daily efficiencies, beautiful changes and most importantly the level of communication. Bob called me daily with updates. His pride in his team's work was delightful and inspiring. Bob is a great project manager.

I have planned all my landscape improvements around the work that Bob did and have incorporated all of his recommendations (moved the propane gas tank, painted the garage door red and put in a vegetable garden). I eagerly look forward to future projects with Bob and consider those projects valuable home improvements.

Three years later, I still get regular compliments on how great my yard looks. It is the beautifully designed and crafted drive and walkway that are the foundation of those compliments. My home now has great curb appeal.

I can easily and confidently recommend Bob Whyte's work and I am delighted that my dear friend and new neighbor chose Naturescape for her new home. Now there are three beautiful Naturescape homes in our neighborhood. No wonder folks love to walk around here!

I wanted to thank Bob for all his work and efforts on putting together a great plan for our basketball court and doing a wonderful job through completion. I have worked with several contractors in my time and I have to say Bob's advice and suggestions from his previous experience with installations was worth it's weight in gold (even though it reduced the amount of money in his pocket)! I would not hesitate to recommend Bob and his crew to anyone looking for them to handle a project like this in the future.
Frank Gauvain Bellingham, MA

Hi Bob,
I wanted to tell you that I was looking at the steps and walkway that you installed 5 years ago this month and am still impressed - even after 5 years it looks as beautiful and striking as the day I returned from my business trip and saw it for the first time. You are a master of your craft.
Best regards,
Dennis Griffin

This is our second experience with Bob Whyte and his crew from NatureScape Landscapes. For obvious reasons, I called Bob back to do our second project and once again was not disappointed. We originally used Bob and crew to redo our front and side walkways. We were so impressed with the new improved look and workmanship that we had them return this year to do another walkway, an entire patio and two rock walls. I would highly recommend Bob and his team. Bob was easy to work with, gave great suggestions, stayed on schedule, was professional, and hires top stone craftsmen. Many of our neighbors have commented what an impressive job NatureScape has done and what a striking addition all the stone work is in our yard. Kudos to the entire team!

Bob Whyte and his team at Naturescape came into our yard and performed, what my wife and I regard as, a minor miracle. They turned what looked to be an average at best patio and yard surrounding our brand new fiberglass pool, into a yard that looks like a picture in a fancy magazine. I’ve never dealt with anyone more professional and motivated to make us happy with the finished product.

My wife and I had a pool installed several years ago at our home in Lakeville. Within one season cracks appeared in the cement patio around the pool. We explored resurfacing with stamped concrete but were not satisfied when we made inquiries with others who had chosen that option. When we decided to use pavers we were surprised and skeptical when Bob told us he would use our cement patio base and install over the existing surface using new foundation leveling material. The result is unbelievable; the new pool coping he installed and the pavers add a whole different dimension to our pool area. We now have a pool patio worthy of a magazine advertisement. The new look is great; the installing crew’s professionalism and Bob’s promise the landscaping around the work site “will look better than when we started” were both pluses.

Let me just start by saying that Naturescapes exceeded every expectation I had for a pool deck.  My wife and I were having a one-piece fiberglass pool installed in an area that was previously no more than trees and pine needles.  We were thinking concrete decking when I happened to drive by Naturescapes one weekday morning.  I told my wife we should check it out on the weekend and that is when we met Bob.  He came by the house that very day and came up with some ideas to think over.  By the time the pool was completed the Naturescapes crew had put down a beautiful walkway and deck to the pool, put down sod, installed a new fence, mulched, installed a granite post for a lantern, and left the area ready to use.   It has now become our summer weekend paradise.

Bob Whyte is so orientated to detail, that he had grassed more area than was contracted for, but when he ran out 5 feet from being totally finished, came back and finished it on his own because it bothered him that it wasn’t totally finished.

I was so pleased with the work done I hired Naturescapes to build a retaining wall around a rock that was in my parking lot at my business.  Once again the job came out better than expected.  Many of my customers have commented on how nice it is.  This winter it was hit by a truck and damaged.  I called to see what could be done and emailed Bob some pictures of the damage.  He called and said it wouldn’t be that difficult to fix and sent a crew several days later.  The price was more than reasonable.  They stand behind their work.

This year I am planning on using them once again to put an irrigation system in my home.  I feel that they will do a fine job based on past performance and professionalism.

It was quite by accident that I met Bob, but he has been a great find. 

I would highly recommend Naturescapes for any landscaping work you are thinking about.  You will not be disappointed.

We can't begin to find words to describe the work performed by you and your team, Naturescape, at our oceanfront home in Plymouth, Massachusetts. Let me start with PROMPT, PROFESSIONAL AND OUTSTANDING. From the onset, we were impressed by your promptness when we set our first meetings at our home for 8 AM. All too often, 8 AM means 9 AM, 10:30 AM or 11 AM, by the time a contractor or serviceman arrives for an appointment. In all of our dealings with you, promptness was your calling card. We wouldn't be writing this endorsement if your service and product ended with promptness. We expressed to you our thoughts for a finished landscape idea and you provided us with a professional landscape design that was truly beautiful, integrating the ocean, bluffs and surrounding landscape with our home. The terraced design hid the slope of the yard and your grading of the lawn integrated the inlaid paverstones into a magnificent half-moon patio. The sculptured cutout of the flower/seagrass beds blends beautifully with the crushed seashells covering the manicured lawn. Your installation of the irrigation system for both the lawn and flower beds has maintained these areas without any burnout in the hot days of summer. Finally, the exterior shower stall and drainage system has never disappointed us. All of your recommendations were right on point and we can only recommend Naturescape to anyone who would like to stop by and see your work at 162 Warren Avenue in Plymouth, Massachusetts.

Thank you.
Nancy & Tom Rooke

Dear Bob,

  As I write this letter of appreciation, snow is gently falling onto the patio, walkway, and parking area which you constructed for us this past fall. Although Yolanda and I can hardly wait for warmer weather, when we will be able to fully enjoy our new backyard, we can take immediate pleasure in viewing the shapes the snow makes on the patterns you created. You made everything fit together and “flow” so naturally!

We have already received a number of compliments on our enhanced landscape--including one or two from professionals who openly admired the quality of your workmanship. Two years ago, when you replaced our front steps and shabby walkway, we were highly satisfied. We are even more satisfied now with your more recent work for us. And we look forward to having you design and construct an enclosed garden and water feature in the near future.

Please feel free to use us as a reference. Having had the opportunity to closely observe you and your men at work, we can attest to the quality and extreme care which you put into each project. Your ideas are creative--you obviously have a knack for knowing exactly what will best enhance an area--and of course your workmanship meets the most exacting standards. We highly recommend you!

Edward Lodi

Hi Bob,
We wanted you to know how pleased we are with our new granite steps and walkway to add curb appeal to the front of our house. Each morning now, as we descend down the stairs that leads to the front door, we'd stop and glance out the side window to look at the pavers. We marvel at the precise cut work to create the curves. We're so glad we decided not to go with stamped concrete. For sure, they're no comparison to pavers and no cracks to worry about!

Your crew were dedicated to get the job done with much efficiency and order. They were also respectable and polite. With that said, it leaves such an impression we would not hesitate to call upon your company again for any possible future projects at our home.

Please accept and forward our appreciation to you and the crew.

Naturescape, and in particular, Bob Whyte has turned our home into a showcase. We had the basics, modest home, nice lot, a pool and concrete deck, grass, some plants, and a huge sink hole in the middle of the front lawn; too many trees, causing all sorts of problems.

Naturescape came in and transformed our property. Bob knew just what to do to alleviate the problem areas and how to beautify everything. He listened to our wish list, made recommendations, and the end result is more than we could have hoped for. Bob was cognizant of the fact that our budget was a factor, yet he went above and beyond in some areas when he knew it would be the right thing to do, without cost.

Naturescape provided us with complete excavation of our existing lawn, trees, plantings, driveway. They installed irrigation, drip lines for the beds, sod, plantings including trees, and most exciting, paver walkways and paver pool deck.

The workers were polite, neat, energetic and talented. The customer service from Bob was outstanding. We couldn’t be more pleased and offer our sincere gratitude to Bob and his employees.

Peter and Marie Sullivan

Dear Bob,
We just wanted to thank you and your crew for a wonderful job on our pool deck. As you know, we had stampcrete as our pool decking when we installed our pool 4 years ago. Since the deck was sinking beneath us, we needed to repair it somehow. After speaking with you about putting pavers right over the existing stampcrete decking, we became quite interested. You spent several hours at our kitchen table talking about the different options we had. If only we had met you before we paid for our first pool deck of stampcrete……..

It was great that you kept in contact with us during the whole process. You and your crew were always there when you said you would be and if something did come up, you always called. Your crew was very professional. We are extremely happy with our paver pool deck. The new deck dramatically changed the entire feel of our back yard. It is inviting and relaxing.

We will highly recommend Naturescape and the paver pool decking.

We received estimates and plans from several landscape contractors and found Bob to be the one for us. He was extremely personable and knowledgeable and worked with us on a plan. He laid it all out on paper and marked it out with paint in the area, so there would be no surprises. We were not sure what we wanted and he was very helpful with idea's. He arrived on the scheduled date and worked straight thru till the job was complete. Bob and his crew were very professional and did an outstanding job. We have received many compliments on our property. Bob and his crew come highly recommended by the Weldon's.

Sandy and Ed Weldon
Plympton MA

We worked with a lot of contractors in building our home and Naturescape was far and away the most trusted and most reliable of all. Bob devised a sensible plan for us that divided our landscape projects into phases. Over the course of two years we have completed two major projects that have transformed our property into a beautiful and enjoyable part of our lives.

The thing that most distinguishes Bob from the rest is the thought that he puts into what he and his crew are doing. He provides great feedback and focuses on producing the best possible project outcome and saving his clients money. Bob has earned our trust and the quality of his work is second to none. We are looking forward to working with Naturescape again in the future.

Roy Leone

Four years ago we installed an in-ground pool at our Rochester home and decided on stampcrete for the pool decking. At the time the stampcrete product was a bit more expensive than a traditional concrete deck but was less expensive than a deck constructed from pavers. The contractor promised us that they would properly compact the area before pouring the deck and that his product was low maintenance and durable. Within a year of installation a series of cracks began to appear. After two more years we noticed that entire sections were sinking. We knew we needed to make major repairs. Initially we decided to weigh repair options as we had a hard time getting over the idea of shelling out the money for an entirely new deck on top of the first one. At the beginning of the next season the stampcrete deck was in shambles and that’s when we called in Bob Whyte from Naturescape. He assisted us with design options and came up with a price we could live with. Bob’s first order of business was to address the settling issue that caused our first deck to fail so dramatically. After fixing the other guys poor installation, they got to work on their product.

Obviously we highly recommend Naturescape and their pavers pool decking. The stampcrete ended up being high maintenance and poor performing. It was extremely slippery even after applying a sealant that was supposed to alleviate that problem. Although we don’t expect any issues with the new deck we are comforted to know the ease and minimal cost of repairs should there be a problem and the repairs would be virtually undetectable. When areas of the stampcrete deck began to fail the only viable option was to completely replace the entire deck as it is nearly impossible to mask a repaired section of stampcrete decking. We certainly wish we had run into Bob Whyte and Naturescape years back when we installed the pool. If we had we would have ultimately saved thousand of dollars and spared us countless headaches. We are completely satisfied with our new pool deck by Naturescape and would recommend them without hesitation.

Sincerely yours,
Matt and Holly Clancy

I live on a 2 acre equestrian property in Cohasset. Bob Whyte of Naturescapes has sucessfully helped us resolve a number of challenging landscape issues. The property is surrounded by several large outcroppings of ledge, making drainage a problem. A beautiful stone dust path leading down to our barn was continously washing out , requiring constant maintenance to deal with the erosion problem. Bob Whyte met with us, saw the property, and proposed a clever, yet cost effective drainage solution. We agreed to the proposal. Bob’s drainage solution has sucessfully corrected the erosion problem, saving us the constant expense and labor of maintaining the path.

We also had Naturescape re-grade our riding ring and add new footing with excellent results. The surrounding landscape was also significantly enhanced by Bob and his expert crew. All of the work has been done in a very professional, time efficient manner.

Bob is now coordinating the landscape and hardscape issues involved in our home remodel. His input on the entire project has been invaluable. We are looking forward to a long term relationship with Bob Whyte and the crew of Naturescape for our many landscape projects. I would highly recommend this company.

Mary Whitley

In 2004, my wife and I began construction of our dream home on Cape Cod. The process was not without its problems and headaches.

However, when it came to the landscape design in the fall of 2005, things took a big step in the right direction. When we met Bob Whyte, the decision to turn over the design and development of our property was the easiest of all.

Bob and his crew were prompt and thorough. He designed and constructed stone walls, installed paver walkways, paver driveway, dry wells, window wells, granite steps and light columns, irrigation system, lawn installation, and trees, shrubs and perennial plantings.

The entire landscape has matured and we are always being asked about the designer of our property. We are also told that we have the prettiest property in our area.

Bob has maintained contact with us and has always responded to any of our concerns promptly. We can recommend Bob and his crew wholeheartedly and without reservation.

Pulled stumps, regraded high ground near house, installed French drain and connected downspouts to drain to lower ground, returned all disturbed areas to seeding ready condition.

Everything went great. He fit me in to tight schedule, everyone worked diligently, I couldn't be happier. And I'm already planning the next project.

New patio/pavers around existing pool. Landscaping and sprinklers.

It was a great experience from the beginning to the end of the project. Extremely courteous. Everything came out beautiful and I would definitely recommend this company.

Magaly Knupp
Kingston, MA

We had been looking to hire a contractor for the past couple of years to do several landscape projects on our property. I received several estimates from other local landscape companies and had actually hired two of them who inexplicably proved to be no-shows.

I discovered Naturescape on Angie’s List and contacted owner Bob Whyte to receive estimates for the work we were looking to get done. Rarely do you find a dedicated, customer oriented and honest contractor like Bob Whyte. Bob came out and spent a great deal of time evaluating and planning the work that we wanted done and we received his estimates with-in a few days of his visit via e-mail. The estimates clearly detailed the work to be done and the materials required, sample pictures were provided of previous Naturescape projects that were similar to what we were looking for. Bob pointed out drainage and design issues that none of the other contractors we contacted took note of. His pricing was equal to or lower than the other estimates we had received.

Work began during the agreed upon time frame. Bob and his crew are craftsman at their trade. Extremely hard working, they arrived on time, and the attention they gave to the project customer was exceptional. We originally hired them to install stairs and a paver patio off of our walk-out basement. Once we saw the quality and value of the workmanship we knew we had found a contractor we could continue to work with.

Over the next several weeks we hired Naturescape to do several other projects: Our property had a cement and cobblestone circular driveway that had been poorly installed by the previous owners and had become an eyesore. Naturescape assisted with the demolition of the driveway and installed a serpentine paver walkway in its place. The remainder of the drive was eliminated and was loomed and seeded. Flowers and shrubs were planted along the walkway. Next an old, undersized deck off of the sunroom was demolished and a patio, walkway and granite stairs were installed matching the design that Naturescape had completed on the walk out patio and stairs. A flower garden was installed next to the sunroom that ties into the walkway. The final job was the removal of a pressure treated lumber retaining wall and cement staircase at the end of the driveway. The asphalt driveway was end cut into a curve shape and a hand fitted field stone wall with granite steps was constructed that connected to the walkway leading to the patio.

During all phases of this work underground electrical conduit needed to be installed or rerouted. Irrigation heads had to be added or relocated. PVC pipe was installed under the walkways to allow for any future expansion of the irrigation or electrical requirements. Drainage was routed underground to eliminate unsightly drainpipes and drain covers. Colored stucco was applied to unsightly cement retaining walls. Loam and seed was put down in the required areas. Naturescape has a team of professionals that provided all of these services.

I did a fair amount of nit-picking and continually piled on the work and despite all the other construction projects that Naturescape had going on this summer, they somehow managed to complete all that I had requested.

Obviously, we are extremely happy with the quality of the work and the cost, these improvements made an amazing difference in our property. Bob and his crew are extremely polite and courteous, always asking if the work was to our satisfaction or if we wanted anything changed. Bob answered all phone calls and text messages almost immediately, and he continuously followed up as the work progressed.

Hire him.

We were looking for a turn-key contractor for our backyard, and were very happy we found Bob at Naturescapes. He did a great job transforming out backyard into a basketball court and entertaining area. He installed a retaining wall to split the yard into an upper and lower level. The upper level now has a 25 x 20 patio and the lower level has a great basketball court. The final result is great and we are very happy with the work.

Kevin Browne
Norfolk, MA

I had the front stairs replaced, the walkway replaced, and the landscape fixed and repaired. This job was done as follows:

  • Naturescape arrived on time
  • Removed old steps and walkway
  • Removed a cement wall that was on the front of the lawn
  • Replaced with granite steps
  • Beautiful walkway way with beautiful masonry
  • Seeded and replanted and leveled front lawn

The whole job went off without any problems. My neighbors loved the work and people are still asking me "who did the work?" The job took approximately 2 1/2 days. When finished there was nothing for us to do except enjoy the look which was a great improvement. I plan to use Naturescape again for my back steps and driveway.

Margaret Kramer
Weymouth, MA

We hired Mr. Whyte of Naturescape to get our land ready to build a horse barn.

Mr. Whyte excavated stumps and leveled out the land where the barn was to be built.

Mr. Whyte built a 10 x 20 footing for a concrete slab for the center isle, leveled the concrete as it was poured, dug 12 four foot deep holes for sono tubes and did the concrete work for the tubes also. Mr. Whyte also dug the holes for the landscape timbers and installed the timbers which would be used for paddock fencing. Mr. Whyte also laid down gravel in the 4 stalls of the barn and in front of the front and back barn doors. He also spread 23 or so tons of stonedust in the stalls and around the perimeter of the barn.

I really like Mr. Whyte's work ethic. He is always on time and is a hard worker. I appreciate his attention to detail for the jobs he did on this project.

Mr. Whyte has a friendly and courteous nature about him and is very knowledgeable about what he does. Money was an issue for us as we were working on a tight budget and Mr. Whyte was very understanding and often offered different ideas of how we could build a great barn and stay within within our budget. I will definitely be using Naturescape for future projects!

Naturescape did an extraordinary job of installing the irrigation system for the New Duxbury Police Station. They arrived when scheduled, started work promptly and exceeded the industry standards of good practice for installation of the system. They were professional and informed us of every step of the process. When they completed all the work they restored the ground surface to better than original and cleaned the site of all their debris. They worked the weekend to complete the project within the Owner's schedule. I would recommend them to any homeowner or general contractor with an irrigation project they need to install. In addition, they installed a hardscape brick paver surface at the front of the police station with the same terrific results. Do call them for a professional quote and don't worry about the finished product. They will deliver.

I needed to have a small paver stone walkway done at my Mother's house for a present. All of the contractor I talked to were not interested in the job because it was small and basic, but to me it was large and important.

I then found Bob from Naturescape, we talked briefly on the phone to discuss the project and set up a meeting. During our meeting I was extremely happy to see his interest in my small scale project. Our meeting was quick and I was impressed with his professionalism and confidence and I hired him on the spot to do my project.

Naturescape started and completed my project just like Bob had proposed. I was very impressed with his professionalism and extremely excited to see how great the new walkway looked.

The Project went exactly as planned and I will use them again.

Scott Volz

Retaining wall built in very sloping back yard, drainage from gutters routed away from house, grading in yard, gravel placed under deck and near back door.stumps removed and fill placed. Work to be continued when weather breaks.

It went very well, Bob was professional, prompt, work done well and quickly. His team worked well with eqch other and everything that could be accomplished now, during the winter, was done.

Barbara Moeller
Pembroke, MA

We built an addition to our home in 2011 and asked Bob Whyte of Naturescape to design and build a new gravel driveway with a stone skirt at the top, looks great. He also worked with us to design and install three new gardens and a stone patio. And last he designed a new irrigation system and put in a new lawn.

Quality of the work is excellent, and many of my neighbors ask me who did the work.

Bob is a professional and an easy guy to work with. Bob is very accessible via email or his cell phone. He always gets back to you within the day.

I have asked him to quote on another project.

Stephen Franzino

They dug up our old flag stone walkway and install a new gray paver walkway. I found this company's price and service to be outstanding! They gave us a very competitive price, and no hard sell. We set a date for the installation of our new walkway and they arrived on time and were done before I knew it! Outstanding work. My wife loves her new walkway. I will be call again this year for our back walk and patio!

From start to finish this job went great. The speed and quality of the workmanship was outstanding. All the work was done in one day! If I had to do it myself it would have taken weeks.

Leonard Sprague
Bridgewater, MA

Naturescape put in a 25 x 25 basketball court in my backyard. The base of the court was a concrete slab. The actual court was the VersaCourt product. The court require retaining walls and advanced engineering due to the slope of the yard. In addition to the court, I had a retaining wall built, sod put in the yard, and all of my mulch beds redesigned and mulched

Overall, this was a great experience. Bob and crew were excellent from start to finish. Bob has great ideas and visions that gave us numerous options to complete the project and provide us with the best results. He was very responsive and worked with our needs throughout the entire project. The crew was prompt, professional, and hardworking - they really took pride in their work. They were also very versatile with their skill set from basic landscaping to wall building to building complex basketball court design on a complex plot of land. The actual basketball court seems like a great product and would recommend it to people looking for an alternative to blacktop or cement.

Once again, overall a great experience. We are very happy with the end result and would recommend Bob and Naturescape for any type of landscaping work that you need.

Michael Foley
Hingham, MA

Remove old concrete walkway, install new paver walkway, install new plants and planting beds along house and new walkway.

This project turned out great! Thanks to Naturescape ! I was not able to be home during most of the project. I picked the pavers and with the help of Naturescape the plantings. Every day I came home I was amazed with the work that had been completed. It was so nice to be able to leave and know the project was going to be done right! Everything was completed on time, budget and in a timely manner.

Jason Aldersley
Carver, MA

Naturescape removed an old concrete walk and steps and installed a new walk with pavers and granite steps.

I called Naturescape and set up and appointment for an estimate. Bob, the owner, was at my house a day later. He had lots of pictures showing the different products that we could use. He gave us a great price and had the work completed within a week.

Paul Longo

Naturescape removed a large concrete patio and path (appx 8 tons of concrete) and made the area ready for planting. Bob Whyte performed the service by jackhammering the patio and then removing the concrete via mechanized wheelbarrows. He also put plywood down on the path the mechanized wheelbarrow used so that the wheelbarrow would not leave ruts in the rest of the yard. This approach ensured that there would be no damage to my yard - in comparison, most other contractors suggested bringing in heavy machinery which would have likely damaged the rest of my yard.

He performed the work as planned and in a timely fashion. His suggested approach was far better than other contractors and even with this more labor intensive method, his price was competitive. Bob is a true professional, and I couldn't have asked for the project to go any better. He has a customer for life!

John Carey
Hingham, MA

Bob built a beautiful patio and fire pit as an extension of my existing deck.

I highly recommend Bob/Naturescape. It was the best experience I have ever had with a contractor. He is very meticulous and pays great attention to detail. He also delivers the highest quality of work. Both me and my brother have used him and are both extremely happy with the results.

Robert Foley
East Walpole, MA

I needed my backyard cleared of multiple large oak tree stumps, several (visible) very large boulders (more we knew were there but buried), and needed a fairly large hilly area in one corner excavated to regain some additional usable space, and the whole yard area to be graded to be as level as possible and hydroseeded. Based on the scope and the number and size of rocks and stumps, etc. I expected this to cost in excess of 8,000 based on internet research, and honestly didn't know if what I was asking for was even completely possible.

I was expecting to have to pay much more given what I was asking for and the difficult landscape they had to work with initially. But Bob's quote was a pleasant surprise, and he seemed to understand exactly what I was going for, so I was confident I was paying for what I really wanted, and not going to have to settle for what was "easy." The quote included some options that I hadn't even seriously considered, such as using the material from excavating the hilly area to fill in a depressed wooded area on the opposite side of the yard (which he also cleared of at least a dozen smaller trees and a large overgrown system of briars!) to gain even more space. Given what he was presenting, I didn't even pursue other quotes. He seemed very easy to work with and that is important when you're spending this kind of money! The rest of his crew were also very good guys, and went the extra mile trying to make sure I got as much flat area as possible (definitely not the kind of workers who show up and do the bare minimum to get their paycheck - they seem to take a lot of pride in their work). Some of the largest buried rocks were too big to excavate, but they did their best to hammer them so they did not protrude from the ground very much, spending much more time than they probably anticipated. Overall, I couldn't be happier with the results. It's way beyond what I ever expected it to look like, gave me much more yard space than I thought I would end up with, and is far more level than I though could be achieved. Given the quality of their work, and especially considering how reasonable the cost was, I will definitely be going back to Naturescape for any future landscape construction I do in the future.

Assisted with design and installed new walls, stairs, walkway, and patio in front of home.

Bob Whyte helped to not only transform our sandpit front yard into something beautiful, but also into something that brought so many wonderful compliments from our neighbors. After our first appointment with Mr Whyte we knew he was the man who could help make our visions become a reality. The project started with a paver walkway and patio, along with a river rock bed which instantly gave the front yard some original character. We were so impressed with the walkway and patio, that we also decided to have a retaining wall built along the side of the yard. To help assist with drainage problems we were having, Mr. Whyte's crew rerouted all of our downspouts into a catch basin. Mr. Whyte and his crew always went above and beyond to make sure we were happy with the work being provided. Mr Whyte even came over on a Saturday to assist with our water well that needed to be raised to ground level. Throughout the project we were given a daily update and kept posted of the upcoming schedule, communication was never a problem. We are so happy with the finished results of our front yard project, we are having Naturescape back to assist with the design of our back yard.

We had a patio, fire-pit, sod, and mulch installed in our backyard. Bob and his crew were extremely professional, punctual, honest, and hardworking. Bob called within two hours of submitting a request for an estimate and when we asked if he could come by during the following week, he asked if we were going to be around that day and came by about an hour later.

We had some idea of what we wanted done, but Bob's expertise and vision of what could be done was incredible. He never once sold us on something that did not make sense and with a limited budget his honesty was refreshing. He provided great communication on our start date and actually started the week before we actually expected him. He estimated that the project would take 4 days to finish and everything was actually completed two days early. Since completing the project, he has stopped by twice to ensure that sod is coming in nicely and to ensure that we are happy with the work.

I would recommend Naturescape and Bob without hesitation and we are EXTREMELY pleased with our new backyard oasis. Without a doubt this is our best experience ever with a contractor and look forward to working with Bob in the future as, we will need more work done in our front yard.

Removed what I thought was going to be 20 stumps with machines. It was over 2 large truck loads! They did a great job. The area looks great. Had many trees removed previous, and with all the stumps and grading, it looks great. My neighbor and I did it on adjoining land, and the price was great, for the amount of work that was done. I would not hesitate to use Bob with Naturescape again. He also graded it and the water with all this rain is going where it should.

Bob's work is timely, professional, and they go,go,go... what hard working polite men. Always asking if the work is OK. You many pay a little bit more with lower cost providers, but in no way will they match the workmanship this co. does.

Excavated dirt to replace rusty pipe from street water supply into cellar, provided plumber connection in cellar, arranged for all inspections, permits, and installed grass seed and repaired dirt driveway on areas dug up.

I am extremely pleased with the professionalism and work accomplished. I had been very frustrated by the lack of response from other excavators. After a home inspection, we discovered the water pipe from the street, supplying our home with water, was very rusty and in need of immediate replacement. I contacted a company recommended by the town and they came out to inspect; however, they waited a month to get back to me and then told me they were too busy. I contacted a couple more companies and never got a response. Bob Whyte immediately responded to my request and was very prompt in responding to every question and kept me informed of when he was able to inspect the property and provide an estimate. He gave me the estimate and explained that he would take care of required permits and inspections and arrange for the plumber to connect the new pipe to home plumbing. This was a big deal and much appreciated since the coordination would have been difficult for me and may have meant no water for over a day. He did his best to keep the job to a single day, although explained that it was possible it could take more than a day due to factors beyond his control. He also told me exactly what damage would occur to the plants and tried to minimize that was much as possible. I was not able to be there. He started on time and completed the work that day. He explained to my family that the water may be rusty as the extra water pressure caused some murkiness as it worked through the pipes. Several days later they had a problem with low water pressure. He called them back immediately and told them what to do. It worked and there hasn't been a problem since. Bob sent me a picture of the job. He gave me a call to go over the results. He also warned me that one of the trees needed to be removed due to weakening its root structure from excavation. He did a great job, was very responsive, very knowledgeable, great to work wit, and was extremely professional. I would use him again and highly recommend him to anyone needing landscaping and excavation work. With all the excavators who don't even bother to call back, he stood out.

We hired Bob Whyte (Naturescape) to remove some trees, excavate the back yard, remove the brush and vegetation from the higher ground, create a slope to access the furthest part of the yard and to take down and reinstall a section of our fence for access. We are pleased with the work. All the materials removed were to stay on-site, however we ran out of space in the middle of the project and talked to Bob about hauling off the rest of the fill. He was able to change the scope of the project on short notice and made arrangements for it to be removed. Very pleased with the work.

Hilary Smith
Plymouth, MA

Re-built two retaining walls, walkway, new granite steps. Widened driveway to double in size.

Great! Bob not only performed all of the project on time, but within budget.

Jennifer Tegan
Milton, MA

Removed all of the plants from beds in front of house - removed entire garden in back - designed and cut new beds, used metal trim around edges, planted all new plants that work well for my area, added fabric layer and then used rocks instead of mulch for finish. Also did same around small tree in front yard (which was not included in the price but they did it for me anyway).

He definitely knows what he is doing, very knowledgeable. Came to my house to look at the project and immediately developed a really clear vision for what he thought would look nice. Talked me through what he was thinking and then presented a bid that included a variety of options (ie with or without mulch, with or without the metal trim around the garden, with shells, with stones, with grasses or without etc etc) that allowed me to tailor the project to the options and price point I wanted without have to go back and forth - I liked that process a lot. When they came, they did the whole job in a day - and they actually did more work that we had agreed on. He saw the tree in the front and (rightly) thought it didn't look right without putting some of the edging and rocks around it too so he threw it in, that was a nice surprise, and I think it shows he'll go the extra mile to ensure that the finished project is really nice. He followed up with a phone call to give me instructions on the care which so far has been good (we got a lot of rain afterwards as well so that helped).

Helga Cecilie Dahl
Hull, MA

Demoed existing stairs and installed granite stairs, installed granite light pole and mounted flange as well as mulching and moving plants.

The quality of the work was excellent. He responded to some real small concerns with the mulching and made it right. Threw in a couple of down spout changes that were not part of the original deal. He was up front that he could not start for about 4 weeks when he gave the estimate due to his workload. The price was in line with his estimate not one penny over. I would recommend him for comparable work in the future.

Ellen Thomas
Norton, MA

Removed a 30-year old retaining wall in our pool area, and built a new one. Also planted perennials and mulched along the wall.

The workmen were some of the hardest working men we've ever seen. They did an amazing job. We are very happy with our new wall and the plantings. It is beautiful! Bob has such wonderful ideas. In talking with Bob, we decided to go with a different plan for our wall than the one we originally called him for. His plan actually saved us money...we really appreciated his honesty. We have a few more projects we'd like to have done and can't wait to hear Bob's ideas on those as well. All in all, it was a great experience. Looking forward to having him come back!

Linda Tice
Halifax, MA

Prepped beach side of property and installed new sod lawn with new paver walkway.

These days, responsiveness from contractors is in short supply. So I was pleasantly surprised when Bob promptly Returned my call, followed up with a quick quote, and scheduled the work according to the agreed timeline. 2 months later the new sod lawn looks great and the paved walkway gets lots of complements. Bob takes pride in his work and does not disappoint.

Adrienne Velema
Plymouth, MA

We had an old 10x10 foot cement patio that we wanted to be removed and replaced with a 12x20 paver patio.

Bob, from Naturescape returned our call in a timely manner. He came out to look over what we wanted to have done at the time he said he would. We explained what we wanted to have done. He took his time, measuring the area, and asking just what we wanted to have done. We were originally thinking about just having a 12x20 foot pad put in. He suggested that we have the new patio go up to our pool, and instead of having a rectangle, that maybe a curved patio would look better. He also suggested where and what types of plants we could use to improve the overall look of the patio area. We had several different companies come out to give us an estimate. Bob showed an attention to detail that none of the others did. His price was in line with what most of the other estimates were.

The quality of work done was topnotch. They completely cleaned up after themselves. To the point, they reseeded the parts of our lawn that were damaged by their equipment, they powered washed my driveway to get the marks from their tucks off of it, and power washed a small shed that got some marking paint on it by accident.

We are very pleased with Naturescape's work, and would recommend them.

Patrick Lee
Raynham, MA

Installed patio and walkway. Showed up on time, completed work as scheduled. Men were professionals and we could tell right away they were excellent at their work. Work during the entire job was very neat and orderly. These guys knew what they were doing!!

Patricia Shea
Marion, MA

Installed new blue stone driveway and removed tree stumps.

Bob White, the owner of Naturescape, was a pleasure to work with. He took time to understand what we wanted and gave good advice on prioritizing the projects we want to do in the future.

He also helped us find a good tree removal service at a very fair price. Naturescape removed the stumps. His guys were polite, detail oriented and FAST.

It took 1.5 days to do all the work - and we have a very long driveway and had many, many stumps and boulders to remove. I highly recommend them and will use them again in the future.

Heather Saleem
Plympton, MA

I had a small area in the back of my house that was difficult to take care of (because of weeds) and just unsightly.

I called Bob for a quote to have pavers placed. He returned my call right away and we set a date for him to come out. Bob came when he said he would, even earlier. I showed him the space I had out back.( I was a little worried that the job might be too small for Bob after seeing some of the beautiful work on his website). He had a vision right away, and guaranteed the space was not too small and would look beautiful. I had at least 5 other estimates from Angie's list and chose Bob because of his honesty and trustworthiness. There's a feeling you get when you know someone is being straight forward with you.

The Job was done completely in 2 days, the yard was cleaned after, and it does look beautiful! I have a nice new patio area out back and I love it. THANKS BOB +co

Repaired brick stairway. Bob Whyte was prompt with his estimate. Gave me professional advice that helped. His crew did neat work. I look forward to doing business with him in the future. Thanks.

Spencer Clough

We asked Naturescape to come back and put matching pavers around our hot tub. They had come and previously installed a patio off our deck in the backyard. We since installed a hot tub and wanted to pavers to extend from the patio to the hot tub. Naturescape came back, and had the job done in one day. They removed the necessary existing pavers, extended the patio to the hot tub and around the front of it. Within 2 days, all was installed, usable and all extra materials were removed. Great job! Great experience!

We were very pleased with our experience with Naturescape, They were professional, suggested great ideas, understood what we wanted to accomplish and got it done very efficiently. Bob Whyte was very responsive when we called with questions and very informative. If we have future work, Naturescape would be the first ones we call.

Stephanie Domey
Plympton, MA

Supply and install paver pool deck, irrigation system, sod, and landscape. Naturescape did a wonderful job at our house. This was a rather large project, and we were amazed at how quickly and efficiently the work was completed.

Naturescape even coordinated with other contractors working at our property to make everything go as smoothly and efficiently as possible. The outcome was PERFECT! They are really on top of their game. Highly recommend.

Laurie Durham
Mendon, MA

Retaining wall installation, front walk repair and upgrade, addition of landscaping beds, granite lamp post, plants and mulch.

I ending up going with Naturescape not because of the good estimate but because of Bob, his eye for detail and the quality of work. During our initial meeting, he provided great ideas, showed me examples of similar projects he had done and walked me through his entire process for a project of my scope. He provided great communication throughout the entire project, letting me know next steps, start times, daily expectations and any issues that arose. He was completely open and honest to any tweaks and add-ons made during the project. Overall, everything was completed within the expected time frame and the quality of work from hardscaping to landscaping was truly amazing. I definitely plan on working with Bob on any future landscaping/hardscaping projects. The work speaks itself and Bob's process and communication are best I've experienced, bar none.

Removed old broken down walkway ...installed beautiful Cobble Paver walkway.

We set up a start day and time ...again he arrived a few minutes early with his crew and equipment and proceeded to work right away. Step by step Bob explained what they were doing and why....I never imagined so much work went into building a walkway. I was told that if someone cut corners it would come back to haunt the homeowner later. ....I am proof of that, the walkway I had sank in a few places and had to be replaced before someone broke an ankle or fell down.......perfect example of why I did it right this time.

Step after step...demo the old walkway, spray painted and dug out outline of new walkway, layer after layer of different subsurface dirt and sand making sure it was graded right so my elderly parents would have a nice easy and safe walk up to the doorway (the old one had become very difficult to navigate ) top quality pavers placed painstakingly in the pattern I wanted ...top layer of paver sand mix, topped off with landscaping to give it that finished look... and after so much hard work ...I was standing on a work of art.

Throughout this entire project it was obvious that Bob and his crew take extreme pride in their work ...and it shows in the finished product.... I could not be happier !!!

I am so happy that I hired them to replace my front stairs with Granite and also will have them do my landscaping.

P.S.....Had a realtor friend come over to check out the finished product. Without telling her what I spent for it she said it increased the value of my house by @ $5000 .....more than 3 times what I paid. That was the icing on the cake for me. If I haven't said it enough Bob...Thank You and your crew !!!

Naturescape paved two walkways leading to my home. They were very professional and did an excellent job.

Rachel Shapiro
Brookline, MA

Bob was easy to talk to and he understood what we had in mind very quickly. What we suggested he took and creatively replaced our patio with a design which was exactly what we had in mind - even better. He accommodated us as far as our time was concerned and he showed up when we were ready and had the job done and cleaned up when he said it would. Can't ask for more than this.

We are happy every day when we drive up or walk out and see our patio.

James Kirk
Plympton, MA

Hi Bob,

We wanted to extend our sincere gratitude to you and your team for the outstanding work you did transforming our home. From the back patio you installed replacing the dilapidated pressure treated decking to the stylistic walkway you installed connecting our driveway to the front porch, your attention to detail is unparalleled. You have a keen artistic eye that is demonstrated in the intricate arcs and patterns you included in the design of the patio and walkway. In addition our new front lawn looks outstanding and the irrigation system you had installed works wonderfully. It is clear that you take your corporate slogan “Beauty Is Our Business” to heart.

Best regards,

I purchased a Big Deal from this company for: $399 for 50 Square Feet of Belgard London Cobble Pavers Delivered and Installed.

That went well and I was happy with the work. It took them awhile from the time I bought the Big Deal in terms of scheduling. Once they came out it only took them a day. 3-4 workers came out and I was happy with the quality of the job. They even went above and beyond with putting in the pavers. They were quick and did a nice job. The work was over $1,000, because I did have to get additional pavers and I got a quote from them ahead of time so that was not a surprise.

Bob Whyte of Naturescape helped build a beautiful stone patio at the Plympton Public Library. The project was actually my son's Eagle Scout Project. Bob gave selflessly of his time and knowledge - not to mention his tools, truck, and some material - to help make the project a reality.

Bob Whyte learned of my son's Eagle Scout project (building a patio at the Plympton Public Library) through a fundraising flyer that he saw posted in town. Bob contacted my son and offered to help with securing materials and also offered to lend his tools and professional expertise to the project. The project lasted several months, and Bob was extremely valuable in helping coach the group and see the project through to completion. He lent his perspective on the size and shape of the patio, the amount and size of pavers to purchase. He taught the group how to spread the sandstone, do the compacting, and eventually lay the pavers. He also helped the group by loaning his dump truck and other tools to the project. Bob is a detail guy, and he kept the boys on task. He did not let them cut any corners, and he made sure they did the job as professionals would do it. The patio came out just beautiful!! I don't think the result would have been half as good without Bob's generous offer to help with his time, material and expertise. I highly recommend Bob and Naturescape for any hardscaping and/or paver project.

Judy Dudley
Plympton, MA

Removed the old patio and built a new one for me.

We were very please with his work. He is going to come back in the spring time and do the seeding. I am looking forward to him coming back. I would highly recommend him. The patio is beautiful. He had a lot of suggestions that we used and was very helpful. He encouraged me to get more quotes and what to look for with the other quotes.

Carol Nichols
Westwood, MA

Installed a paver walkway. Removed old pavers and landscaped. They installed granite lamp post and mailbox post. Quality of the work was excellent. They did it in the timeframe that they quoted and started on the day they said they would. I'd definitely recommend Naturescape.

Brian Gregg
Raynham, MA

They leveled our back yard and planted some grass.

We wanted to get a retaining wall, but he suggested to level out the yard instead. That saved us some money and also gave us a bigger yard. He thinks quickly to help solve people's problems.

Xia Xiao-Birdsong

Stone patio with fire pit.

We had two other estimates and this company seemed to have their stuff together. They were able to show us before and after pictures at jobs the did recently. Reasonable pricing and great work and great clean up. Very happy!!

Erica Adams

Super nice and knowledgeable. straight talker. would hire and recommend.

Nan Theberge
Sherborn, MA

Removed gravel from the front of the yard along the street, lowered the grade and replaced gravel with stone dust, re-installed exisiting granite curbstone vertically, installed two grainte posts (1/w bracket for mail box), installed a row of cobbles to extend a walkway to the repositioned curb and put down mulch.

Everything went very well from start to finish. Bob did a great job helping me evaluate exactly what needed to be done (my intial idea would have been impractical and execssively expensive). Bob came up with a new design that met our intent perfectly a a very reasonable price. Some additional minor work was required beyond the original quote, which he performed at no additional cost. The work was done promptly and looks great. Bob was very professional, easy to talk to and responded to my inquiries promptly. I plan on using Bob in the future for additional projects!

Adrian Gunn
Carver, MA

Installed new walkway and landscaped front yard.

Bob and his crew were prompt and efficient . They arrived on time and were very professional. I had no idea what I wanted to do with my yard, so I let Bob and his visions create a beautiful walkway and landscaping. I am extremely happy with the outcome of this project and will definitely use Bob again.

Originally was going to do small back patio area in 2013. However in spring of 2014 decided that we needed a new front walk way so that is what we did. The new walkway is a major improvement over what we had previously.

Alan Lury
Sharon, MA

They built a patio.

We had a good experience. The quality was excellent. Bob White, the owner, was easy to deal with. It took a little longer than I thought but overall I was very satisfied. I would absolutely recommend them. We were very happy with the quality of the work. I would absolutely use them again.

Amy Comeau
Berkley, MA

I purchased a deal for 50 square feet of Belgard London cobble pavers delivered and installed.

The service went very well. Bob Whyte, the owner, came out right away to discuss a plan and give us an estimate. I did pay an additional $900 to cover a much bigger area. I thought the pricing was very fair. He had great ideas and did not try to push sales on me for things I did not need. They did a beautiful patio and landing for us. A crew of 4 came out and completed the job in 1 day. The work they did was fantastic. They were very flexible with my schedule.

Edward & Sara Lee
Arlington, MA

Added another section to our patio (already had done the patio around the pool and steps from the pool area to the deck plus beautiful landscaping) for a jacuzzi. It matches perfectly and it looks amazing.

It went well. It matches the pool area and it looks amazing. The employees were reliable, polite, punctual, professional and extremely hard workers.

Magaly Knupp
Kingston, MA

The deal was for a $49 Patio or Pool Deck Consultation/Conceptual Layout. This was very high value for the money... Bob gave a solid hour + consult including ideas, options, assessments and recommendations/prices. Based on the consult, we hired Bob to install a new ~22' by 22' patio in our back yard (from which he subtracted the $49 consult fee).

Bob was very helpful in giving guidance on options, esthetics and cost. Very focused on doing the job right, and explaining what that means in time, cost, and durability of the product. We had some delays due to rain, but Bob was proactive in communication on the revised when as well as the why (can't do certain pieces of the work until the ground dries). Once on site, the work went quickly and smoothly, and looks beautiful. He also actively solicited feedback via Angie's and in person, which I appreciated. The price wasn't a bargain, but definitely fair and easily worth the quality and piece of mind of working with a pro. I'd highly recommend Bob and team.

George Chu
Dedham, MA

Replaced old leaking cast iron pipe leading from the house to the septic tank. He had to remove and replace an existing brick walkway to get to it.

We bought the house the year before and immediately noticed a gurgling sound and an egg smell in the kitchen sink whenever we ran the washing machine. We had 4 different plumbers eliminate various possible causes until it was finally determined that the pipe from the house to the septic tank was cracked. The good news is we have two pipes and this was the washing machine and kitchen pipe and not the human waste pipe but it was annoying and likely a health hazard. Bob was one of two contractors we contacted and he came in cheaper without the up-sell of the other guy. Once the job started, it was soon realized that not only all our utilities ran right over the broken pipe (which we expected and dig safe confirmed but a gas line and a French drain too). They were careful and worked by hand around this area. This slowed them down by about a day but this was understandable. Also they had to remove a large cement pad under the front door. He got us in touch with a carpenter to replace the step since he noticed some wood rotten around the cement pad and suggested that a composite step would allow for better air flow and reduce further rotting once the new wood was installed.

Joseph Bettencourt
Norwell, MA

Installed new sprinkler system for my entire yard.

Bob spent a lot of time communicating with me and answering all my questions via email, phone calls, and in person. My house already had a sprinkler system installed but I knew it wasn't installed correctly and we added a fence to our property so our sprinkler system was not getting all areas of our lawn evenly. Bob came out one evening and we went over everything including helping me plan out a patio area for a hot tub I was buying. Bob always had great advice and was very knowledgeable. He notice I some trees recently installed and noticed they were not getting enough water and told me how much they should be getting daily.

It took me a few weeks to finally move forward with the sprinkler system and I'm so glad I did. Bob and his team did a great job. They installed 10 zones for me and covered my entire property with even coverage. His team came back out a couple of times to adjust the heads and change the timer to help make sure the grass was getting even coverage and help with my soil as it's very compacted in some areas which causes it to retain a lot of water in some spots.

The whole process was great. I can't say enough about Bob and his team!

Paul Duffy
Attleboro, MA

Bob removed an old stone wall and replaced it with a nice new stone wall with a granite cap and a new granite lamppost to match.

Bob priced the job well compared to another provider and suggested improvements to our original idea, which we agreed to. The wall and lamp.post came out great and we are happy with the overall experience.

Joseph Bettencourt
Norwell, MA

Naturescape gave us a landscape design consultation. Bob's forte is hardscaping, but he gave plenty of good suggestions for plantings, tree work, the proper sequence for the jobs we're considering, etc. We were very satisfied with this consultation.

David Condon
Belmont, MA

My family has been in the construction industry for 50 years and I worked it for 10. I don't think I ever met a guy with more integrity, sincerity and a willingness to help than Bob. I called him re: a huge paver job. We chatted on the phone for about 5 minutes before he conceded that the scope of work would put him at a price disadvantage given the fuel cost (He is about 70 miles from me). He could have politely ended the call right there but he continued chatting with me giving me ideas and things to be on the lookout for....almost like a pro bono consultant. He even offered to come take a look at the project himself. Knowing he only had a microscopic shot at the job he came, I believe, more to help than anything else. WHO DOES THAT? This guy is awesome. His work speaks for itself, you only need to read a few reviews to know as much. And because of that, I was an inch away from giving him the project but the additional cost compared to a local (and good contractor) was just too much to overlook. I would tell anyone that you would be lucky to have Bob do your next project. The guy is great, honest as the day is long and willing to help in anyway he can...... As a matter of fact, I even consulted him a few times during my project and he texted me back almost immediately each time.... think about that.

Bob Whyte came by to evaluate our landscaping project and to provide design ideas. He was prompt - early even! - and full of great ideas. Bob took the time to walk the area, think through our needs and provide some great ideas.

Bob is a great listener and a very creative landscape designer. Based on our interactions, we have decided to move forward with him.

Thank you Naturescape & Bob Whyte for an excellent job. the new patio & walkway have transformed our backyard. the workers were very professional and worked so quickly, they completed the project in just one day. Thanks again for a job well done. thanks again for a job well done.

Creative and cost effective solution to our eroding backyard--- new sod, mulch, re-directing the gutters, leveling off backyard and fence.

Bob and his team exceed our expectations and we are very happy with the end product.

We interviewed a couple of other landscapers, but we decided to go with Naturescapes because Bob really seemed to get what we wanted to do, he had some creative—outside the box—solutions to our landscaping problems and his prices were reasonable. Bob was the one landscaper that identified the true problem/cause of our backyard erosion—excessive water coming from the gutters (which had been directly rain water directly into the backyard). Bob & team re-positioned our gutters to run beneath our back yard and thus remove the impact of the rain water on the back yard—very creative!

Bob handled all of our concerns/questions in a very professional manner and we very pleased with the result. Bob turned an ugly unused backyard where we had a significant erosion problem into a beautiful, relaxing spot for us. We have already used our newly transformed backyard to entertain our friends and have received many compliments and “wows!”. In addition, we have had many, many compliments from the neighbors about how good it looks! We highly recommend Bob and Naturescapes and plan to continue to work with them down the road to address some additional landscaping needs. Thank you Bob & team for giving us back our backyard-- we love it!

The project involved laying a new driveway over our dirt driveway, installing a cobblestone walkway from the driveway to the front door, and the replacement of existing bushes along walkway with a more appealing landscape. These folks were very professional. They made great suggestions, gave good advice, and did an excellent job. They were always on time and the job was finished withing the estimated time frame. We are very happy with the results.

Supply and install a granite step.

Bob, explained the process, provided an estimate and did the job promptly. We are very pleased with the results!

James Tuffo
Hanson, MA

Removed old grass/dirt and replaced with new loam and sod. Carved out 7 garden beds and mulched them. Planted a dwarf Japanese maple tree.

All went very well, better than expected. The grass was perfect and the gardens werer ready to be planted. All done in a very short amount of time. I left many of the details to Bob because I knew he would produce a great product and I got more than I paid for, in my opinion.

Bob left me with great instructions and was available to me if I had questions. I texted him with questions and pictures that he promptly returned with answers.

I would recommend Bob and his services to anyone looking for a quality landscape/hardscape service.

Mark Alves
Cohasset, MA

Excavated & installed paver patio approx 20x25 ft, installed some small landscaping beds/shrubbery.

We would recommend Bob in an instant. He was friendly & easygoing, yet he was responsive and timely in communications and in completing the work. He set the right expectations about the cost & the process so there were no surprises, and he went above and beyond to ensure proper excavation & drainage paths. He gave great advice about finishing the area with landscaping which he also installed, and he involved us properly in the important decisions that always "pop up" in the middle of any improvement project.

The end result is beautiful. We couldn't be happier. Bob is not the cheapest guy out there, but you get what you pay for and he is worth every penny. I am a happy customer willing to talk to anyone who is considering hiring Naturescape.

Bryan Sander
Wellesley Hills, MA

Naturescape came out to discuss my choices for replacing a three car black top driveway with a new layout and using stone pavers. I also wanted ideas and a price for a natural stone patio.

We discussed in detail the scope of the removal of the old driveway, and what materials would be needed for installation of new paver driveway. He took the time to describe the different materials used and why they are used.in creating a long-lasting driveway. He sketched out a walkway and asked pertinent questions regarding current drainage of downspouts, french drains, and utilities. He showed me pictures on his phone of work that Naturescape has done for other clients using the same materials I was interested in. It helped me get a"visual" as to the finished result. Follow up was less than a week later with an cost estimate and time frame for completion. Included was a cost estimate for the patio I was interested in having built. Overall very professional. friendly meeting.

We had two red brick walkways, one approximately 15 feet and the other 30 feet. When we met with Bob, he gave us his "vision" of what they could be, and I have to say the final product is simply beautiful! Bob answered all our questions, his crew was professional and very neat, and we couldn't be happier with the new walkways! I highly recommend Bob and Naturescape!

Pressure washed, removed old sand between pavers, fixed some sunken areas and resanded between pavers giving my walkways a facelift. The walkways look just like they did 8 years ago when Naturescape originally did them.

It went great, they did just what they said they would do and more!

Regraded front yard including pulling stumps and removing brick walkway. Placed rip rap along steep bank and widened driveway area with new crushed blue stone surface. Leveled grade in side yard. Installed new PVC pipe from septic tank to house and raised collar of tank access hatch for easier access. Sodded all new ground areas.

Very smoothly, start to finish. good supervision of all crews, conscientious work by all crew members, including long days when necessary. cleaned up at the end of every day. Bob adjusted to an enlarged scope of work without hesitation, though I knew he had work backed up.

I emailed Bob to request he come out and take a look at my Irrigation system that was pooling water in one spot. Bob promptly called me and told me he would not be able to come out but would be happy to help me diagnose the problem over the phone. After a short process of elimination we discovered that the most likely cause was a punctured/broken pipe underground. Bob told me step by step exactly what to do to fix it myself from digging the trench to sealing the replacement coupling. I'm happy to say I was able to do the repair on my own and the total cost of the parts was less than $10! What a true professional and Gentleman. I would definitely recommend Bob in the future. Thanks Bob!

We needed our back yard leveled out, about 60 feet of edging installed, and mulching done.

We had used Naturescape last year to remove and install a new patio. They did an excellent job. So, when we wanted landscaping work to be done this year, we called them right away. Bob came out, and we went over what we wanted to be done. We had had 7 tree stumps grounded down. We needed those holes filled in. There were three garden beds we wanted removed, loamed, and seeded. In addition, there was an area about 30 feet by 80 feet that needed to be leveled out. They used about 10 cubic yards of loam. Seeded the area, and installed about 60 feet of metal edging. We had bark mulch put in too, on the hill behind out pool, in the garden areas in the back yard, and in the front yard around the house and two trees. They edged over 100 feet of grass. Bob even put loam down and seeded other areas of our yard as a bonus. It truly is a pleasure working with Bob from Naturescape. It is a nice feeling knowing you will get quality work, done on time and within budget. We would use them again.

Bob designed and installed a new fenced in back yard area complete with paved patio, walk ways, sodded lawn and a new irrigation system.

We chose Bob over several other bidders because he was punctual and had many good suggestion for our project. We liked his design and his proposal was realistic and competitively priced. The craftsmanship is first rate. His crew was professional and hard working. We are already planning another project for this year and would definitely consider using Bob for this as well.

Spring cleanup, removed all leaves and brush from lawn areas, fresh edge and new mulch around large flower beds, seeded entire front and back lawn (almost 0.5 acre) by slicing and overseeding.

I had used Bob last year to do a major back yard excavation, remove large boulders, trees and shrubs, level the area and make it a larger usable space, plus hydroseed the whole backyard. At the time, he made a guarantee that if the grass didn't come in well despite my watering as directed, they would return the following year to re-seed at no cost. I kept in touch with him as the lawn became overtaken with crabgrass, and he reiterated his promise. In the spring, I confirmed with him that he would be coming to re-seed, and at that time he offered me a choice between hydroseeding again or having him "slice" it himself. He explained the difference and that slicing was actually more work and time for him but he would do it at no extra charge. I took him up on it, and he gave me a rough timeline for returning. In the meantime, I contacted him about a spring cleanup, since I hadn't even had time to cleanup my leaves in the fall. I sent him some pictures as requested, and he gave me a quote of $320 for the cleanup and flower bed treatment. This was on par with other estimates my neighbors had been getting from other providers, so given he was the one going to be doing the seeding I went with him. It ended up being a bigger job than he expected, which I understood, but to his credit, he didn't change his estimate and ask for more money. Not only did they do a beautiful job with the lawn and flower beds, but they went above and beyond, cleaning up the area adjacent to the flower beds that wrapped around our side porch and putting down fresh mulch there as well. This space had previously been such an eyesore for us, overgrown with weeds etc, but Bob and his guys really spruced it up and we have gotten nothing but compliments from neighbors and friends since on how nice it looks. Something I would never have even though to ask for, but that's what makes these guys so good - they care more about the outcome and making the customer happy than just grinding through the work requested.

Bob has really earned my trust by honoring his commitments, being very responsive (typically answers my emails within minutes!) going above and beyond, and doing great work at very reasonable cost. I will continue to use Naturescape for all my outdoor projects in the future and recommend them every chance I get.

Dismantled old retaining wall and replaced with stone. built two new walkways to front door added a fence and mulch around walkways.

We had a retaining wall in terrible shape. Bob was responsive when I called and went to work shortly thereafter. The new wall is amazing as are the walkways. He was extremely helpful in designing how it would look and recommending the hardscape. He and his associated worked so hard, six days a week. He always responded to my questions and the price was very fair for all the work they did. If you look on his website, you'll see the dramatic difference his work made to our house. We would highly recommend him for any landscaping work.

I called for an emergency leak in my over flow piping. Mr. Whyte answered his phone, listened patiently to my description of the problem and promptly told me there was nothing to be done right now except to shut off the water. He was talking to a completely clueless person (we didn't even know we were supposed to winterize our system...).

He talked me through shutting off the water supply in the basement ~ without missing a beat. No hesitation, no hmmm, I'm not going to earn a dime for this advice...just purely wanting to help. We won't know if there is a real problem until the spring. Mr. Whyte advised me how to determine if indeed there IS a problem in the spring ~ if there is I will call him to come repair. I won't have to search around for someone I hope I can trust because i already feel like I found him.
Many thanks Mr. Whyte!

Second time we've contracted with Bob Whyte for hardscaping. I couldn't say enough good things about the quality of his work or the honesty and diligence that he puts into his commitments. Phenomenal!

Brian Gregg

Was professional and excellent service from start to finish. Bob's team is timely, well informed and Bob has an artists touch. Great crew - the best crew I have worked with yet and I am in the middle of a 2 year renovation. Highly, highly recommended!

Install paver patio around pool.

Let me start by saying Bob and his team are top notch. We talked to a number of patio contractors and after talking with Bob, there was no question who we were going to go with. His communication throughout the project was fantastic and work was impeccable. We couldn't be happier with the end results. Bob has been doing this for a long time and also offered some great ideas for other projects we were planning. I would highly recommend Naturescape to anyone looking for a patio or other landscaping work.

He installed a double wide paver driveway and a walkway to our front door.

Bob and his crew were very professional. We really have no complaints. They prepped the site properly and meticulously installed the pavers. The driveway is beautiful. I would not hesitate to recommend Bob to anyone.

Pool demolition - Removed patio, entire pool structure (including filter), filled with loam, and re-seeded the area.

In short: Bob did a fantastic job at a great price. He truly went above and beyond our expectations. I would not hesitate recommending his services to a friend.

Longer: Bob was hired to demo an in ground pool at my Mom's house. Why did we choose Bob? He responded quickly to my calls, was a pleasure to deal with on the phone, quickly provided us a written estimate, and boy oh boy, the price was right. Thousands less than the other estimates we received.

This was a very emotional project for my Mom. The pool brings back a lot of memories. And getting rid of it is no small job! She did not sleep the night before the work was to start. Full of nerves. But once Bob and crew arrived she calmed down a lot. Confident that she was in good hands. Everything was done pretty quickly. With most of the work occurring over the course of three days. Bob had good suggestions about how to preserve portions of the patio and flagstone. Our original estimate did not factor in the cost of removing the pool filter and enclosure. But Bob took care of it at no extra cost. I was not around to see the crew working on the pool. But Bob sent me pictures. And I saw the end result. He truly did a fantastic job.

I know this all may come across as a little too gushing. But my Mom and I really are extremely pleased. Was there anything that could have been done better? Sure. There was some miscommunication here and there with regards to scheduling. But it wasn't a big deal fur us. Honestly, if we paid twice as much for this job, we'd still be happy. Do not hesitate to hire Bob for your next job!

Naturescape provided the following:
1. Removed old walkway that only lead from the house to the driveway stairs
2. Designed and installed a new walkway that went from the house to the street (which was a long walkway to perform) and to the driveway stairs.
3. Relocated granite mailbox post to account for new walkway to the street.
4. Raised/re-aligned the front granite steps to include the pouring of a new concrete pad
5. Removed existing driveway stairs that were in very poor condition and replaced them with new granite stairs to include a Unilock paver stone landing that matched the new walkway. Also redesigned existing stairway wall to create better curb appeal – and it did.
6. Installed new landscape light posts
7. Installed a new window well for basement window

Bob Whyte (owner of Naturescape) was superb. The entire project came out terrific! Bob (and his crew) was professional and strived for excellence and we feel he attained it too! Throughout the entire project, Bob was great at communicating everything with us. He had great ideas and vision on how to put a project like this one together. We feel that he handled this project like it was his own. He truly wanted us to be happy with the final product and we were! He’s a wonderful contractor to work with and an all around nice guy! We would absolutely use him again! FYI: The replacing of the driveway stairs was particularly a difficult task due to the existing wall surrounding the stairs and how the stairs measured different lengths as they ascended from the driveway up to the front lawn. It really took a skilled hand at the cutting of the granite stairs and their positioning. Also Bob did an excellent job with the redesigning of the walkway connection to the driveway stairs to include the stairway landing. We feel that Bob was a very talented and experienced contractor!

Bob put in a patio, prepared a site for a new shed that is being delivered later and worked to reshape and improve the landscape in our back yard. He reshaped a garden area and installed cobblestone as edging.

Bob was great to work with! We had some ideas already as to what we wanted. He listened to us and made some great suggestions. When he laid out the area with markers so we could visualize the space, we realized that it would not work well for us. He worked with us some more to try out other scenarios until we got it right! He and Santana were here early every day and were very hard working. They used several layers of material to provide a very stable base for the patio and the shed. Each layer was compacted to give the best results. My husband and I are thrilled with the results. I would recommend Bob Whyte for any of your landscape projects.

Built two fabricated stone retaining walls approximately 100 feet in length 4 feet high.

We found Naturescape and Bob Whyte through Angie's list. The work was done at a family summer home in Plymouth. Essentially the job was replacing two fairly long (50-100 feet) retaining walls that were rotted landscape timbers with formed concrete/stone blocks. We obtained 3 estimates and Naturescape was the best value. Bob Whyte was great. He met with me multiple times prior to the job and kept us updated with e-mails about the progress of the work and with numerous photographs. He offered good advice about various options. He went beyond the minimum we had agreed to simply because he felt it was the right way to do the job and did not go over the estimated price. Overall, I think we got high quality work for a very fair price and expert, professional service. I would recommend Naturescape without hesitation and, in fact, plan on using them for future work.

We had two other estimates and this company seemed to have their stuff together. They were able to show us before and after pictures at jobs the did recently. Reasonable pricing and great work and great clean up. Very happy!!

Removed gravel from the front of the yard along the street, lowered the grade and replaced gravel with stone dust, re-installed exisiting granite curbstone vertically, installed two grainte posts (1/w bracket for mail box), installed a row of cobbles to extend a walkway to the repositioned curb and put down mulch.Everything went very well from start to finish. Bob did a great job helping me evaluate exactly what needed to be done (my intial idea would have been impractical and execssively expensive). Bob came up with a new design that met our intent perfectly a a very reasonable price. Some additional minor work was required beyond the original quote, which he performed at no additional cost. The work was done promptly and looks great. Bob was very professional, easy to talk to and responded to my inquiries promptly. I plan on using Bob in the future for additional projects!

Bob and his crew were prompt and efficient . They arrived on time and were very professional. I had no idea what I wanted to do with my yard, so I let Bob and his visions create a beautiful walkway and landscaping. I am extremely happy with the outcome of this project and will definitely use Bob again.
