Authentic Landscapes Outdoor Living Firepit


Last spring we installed a pool in our very hilly yard. We knew that after the pool was in place there would be a need for a retaining wall and landscaping repair. However, we were not prepared for what the pool company left behind. With having purchased the pool we were unprepared for what was now a huge landscaping project.

A good friend recommended Authentic Landscapes. Eric was very prompt and considerate of our budget. He came up with a plan that would repair the yard give us a patio and keep us within our new budget.

The team at Authentic Landscapes was in and out of our yard for much of the summer. Every day they cleaned up after themselves and kept us using the new pool through the construction. The project is now complete with multiple retaining walls, drainage, a large paver patio, a fire pit, a stepped walkway and two new gardens.

The yard looks great and we couldn’t be happier. We are excited to have our first season sitting by the pool.

I originally hired Eric Romsey of Authentic Landscapes in 2007 while completing an addition to our home. Eric and his team built a beautiful paver patio, two stone/paver walk ways, a retaining wall and back drive way. To say that I was pleased with Eric’s work would be an understatement. Over the years I have become skeptical of contractors and their promises but Eric has given me new hope. Not only did he do everything he said he would do, but the quality of his work exceed my expectations and he always kept me informed of the progress and next steps. He is also willing to go above and beyond what is asked of him. As an example, I had a large piece of ledge in the middle of my back yard which all other contractors said they couldn’t remove. Eric said he was willing to try and proceeded to spend a little time each day using a jack hammer to chip away at it. By the end of our project the ledge was completely gone and replaced by beautiful lawn. My wife and I were thrilled.

I have since used Eric’s company for many more projects over the years including a recent stone walkway in the front of our house. Simply put, I would strongly recommend Eric and Authentic Landscapes to anyway in need of hardscape, paver, lawn or landscape work.
