"Before creating a beautiful, graceful and colorful 50 ft garden in place of the wild area bordering the side of my steep hill, Tom had to determine what had been causing sinkholes to appear and reappear on the hill in spite of professional repairs. He correctly diagnosed a significant underground leak and expertly engineered the repair. Tom has the gift to really hear the desires of the client, then incorporate them into a a magnificent garden palate. I even bought a new camera to better capture the splendor."

"We hired Tom and Acorn Landscaping to improve and beautify an existing pond and waterfall. The entire stone waterfall was dismantled and rebuilt into a wonderful cascading stream with three waterfalls into the remaining pond. Tom worked closely with us to ensure we received our vision of a relaxing, calm sanctuary adjacent to our bluestone patio. He recommended a planting and lighting scheme which highlights the entire project. He and his staff were very professional - on time, great communication and extremely neat at the job site. We would strongly recommend Acorn Landscaping for a pond/waterfall project. It was a pleasure to work with Tom!"

Tom, Thank you so much for the work you did for our pond! It looks fantastic. The waterfall is flowing better since you cleaned everything out. I'm so grateful!

"Tom, I appreciated the thorough job you and Paul did, with such details as multiple levels for plants and boulders to add interest when viewing the pond. The waterfall is impressive, and the underwater lighting adds a lot to the effect. Paul ("the rock whisperer") spent a lot of time getting all the rocks and boulders placed just right, and properly secured. I'm looking forward to many enjoyable hours by my new pond!"

Tom and his crew did a wonderful job installing our pond. They took time for attention to all details and were very anxious to please us. We have enjoyed the pond so much since having it installed, it seems like it has always been there, and looks part of the scenery around it.

Tom installed a new front walk for our house. He is wonderful to work with and helped us convert our initial ideas into a very attractive design. The work was done very carefully with no damage to the surrounding plantings. The finished walk is even more beautiful than we expected and we are still getting positive comments from our neighbors. We're planning to install a pond next year and will definitely have Acorn Landscaping do that project.

Tom,

If you have been thinking of creating a space of beauty and peace in your backyard, you have come to the right website. In just three weeks time, Tom transformed my back yard into a place of peace and light. He is passionate about his work, and it shows in every detail. He is talented, ethical, trustworthy, friendly and prompt! It was great working with him.

I sincerely thank you for helping me realize my vision. You created a paradise for my nieces, nephews, birds, and chipmunks. I especially appreciate how you helped me bring a part of my father's essence into the yard. It does my spirit good to hear the water, see the animals, and connect with the Great Spirit.

Tom,
You did such a wonderful job on our outdoor patio and landscaping. The brick and slate compliment each other very well. The highlight of our patio is the waterfall, stream and landscaping. These features make the space and extension to our home. Family and friends always love relaxing while listening to all the birds that now visit because of the waterfall and stream. It looks like it has been there forever!

We thank you, Tom very much. The space that you designed and executed turned out absolutely perfect. The landscape lighting adds such a nice touch to all the trees and really displays the focal point of the space, the waterfall and stream. Your workmanship was meticulous and it really shows that you enjoy what you do.

Thanks again

Excellent service & great design sense! Tom not only put in our pond but also landscaped a good portion of our backyard using the pond and stream as a “centerpiece”.

"I can't thank you enough for my little backyard paradise."

My pond was dug out on Earth Day and one week later (Arbor Day) the plants were placed.  I was blown away with your professionalism and workmanship.  Never in my life has a contractor promised and delivered exactly what I wanted.  It is so beautiful and natural looking. People who come to see it can not believe it's only a few months old.  My fish love their new habitat as well, only four months old and I just discovered we've had babies! Thank you, thank you, thank you.  I absolutely love my piece of paradise.

"Tom did an excellent job in designing & installing the plants"

We are very pleased with our "Four Season" gardens in the front and side yards. Each season brings new developments. We are awaiting the Fall foliage. Tom did an excellent job in designing & installing the plants. He also gives tips on maintaining them.

"I just cleaned off the top of my desk and found the lovely card you sent. Belated thanks and sorry I did not gather a few thoughts together sooner.

I was more than happy with all the work you did; I was absolutely thrilled!! Sitting at my desk in the family room I can see and hear the waterfall; I can even see and sometimes actually “hear” the fish coming to the surface to snatch an unsuspecting bug! During the warmer weather when the windows are open the sound of the waterfall can be heard throughout my house.

Even to this day people walking around the neighborhood stop and comment about how beautiful the landscaping is, not only the pond, but around the entire house. The rock wall along the back of the property has just added a nice finishing touch to the landscape. People driving by even slow down to catch a glimpse of the pond."

Tom,

"Adding a pond to my small backyard was a dream I had for many years.  Your design and workmanship far exceeded my expectations and the pond with its water falls adds tranquility to my life all year long.  In the summer I find myself sitting near the pond and enjoying the peaceful sound of the water, while watching the fish.  The way you tied the pond into the landscaping was brilliant.  I use to think my backyard was ugly and now it's my pride and joy."

Tom is a miracle worker! He miraculously changed our embarrassing, eye-sore of a backyard into our personal paradise! As we watch with amazement we realize that he designed and planted the yard in such a way that something new begins to bloom and blossom just as something else passes its blooming peak. North, south, east or west, there is a spectacular and beautiful vision! Thank you, Tom!

"Tom Warmerdam did a great job."

He did almost all the artwork by himself. He was so excited about his creations he was fun to watch. My friends also noticed his excitement of his job. He was great and proud of what he was producing.

"The birds have "discovered" the pond too. Last week a robin hopped along the rocks right in the water, ducking his head and wings - just thrilled with life!!"

"I'm still getting MANY compliments on the pond and the landscaping!"
