Our plan was to build a firm that could handle anything from the simplest front stoop or walkway renovation to the most complex grounds transformation for a large-scale estate. Through the years, we have been fortunate to assemble the skilled staff of designers and craftsman to do just that.
Founded in 2008 on the principles of providing excellent value to our clients through creative and functional designs and skillfully constructed projects, Nature’s Apprentice is a premier landscape design-build firm serving central and northern New Jersey.
From an initial consultation with owner, Sean Murray, to concept and plan development and all the way through project construction, we pride ourselves on our communication and client engagement. We strive to understand our clients and develop a project that reflects their tastes, while complementing the character of the home and the property. Whether it be a classic bluestone patio with brick or fieldstone accessory structures, a sleek contemporary paver patio using the latest in hardscape products or anything in between, we’ll work with you to help you determine the style and materials that will get you excited to spend time living outside. Our goal at the end of the project is for you to ask, ‘Is this really mine?’
In addition to building and installing your patios, retaining walls, outdoor fireplace, walkways, fire pit, outdoor kitchen, driveway, drainage system, drywell, planting or landscape lighting, we’ll manage the process of putting in your pool, cabana, pavilion, deck, fence or irrigation system.
We specialize in working with the unique challenges involved with swimming pools. We build exquisite waterfalls, install a myriad of natural and cultured stone veneers and can custom template and fabricate your stone pool coping on site.
