"Nature's Re-Creations did such a wonderful job on my waterfall and pond. I have never seen such professionalism, high-quality work. The guys worked fast, were courteous of me and my neighbors, and cleaned up everything before they left. I got more than I expected, and would recommend them to anyone."

"Our friends and relatives have raved about our pond. Neighbors admire it. Strangers walking in the neighborhood have come into our back yard and complimented us on Nature's Re-Creation's labors..."
- Ralph S.
"We are so happy with our pond and landscape. We are also very disappointed that we could not be on the tour this year and showcase what a quality job you deliver. We had too many family commitments this year to do it, but will commit to being on the tour next year and representing what you can deliver. It just reinforces that we made the right decision in choosing you to build our pond. As we heard many times last year when we were on the tour, 'we were told we had to come see this one!'"
- Dennis and Cathy
"Chris has great vision... ...One of my neighbors adjacent to me told my wife that they bought their house because of my back yard..."
- John V.
"The quality and beauty of the waterfall far exceeded my expectations! I have seen pictures of other water features that looked less than spectacular..."
- Mike R.
"Nature's Re-Creation's has created a "paradise" just outside our back door. Chris takes great pride in the work he has done, which is truly a work of art."

"BEST working relationship with a contractor - EVER! We met Chris at the St. Louis Home & Garden Show in February of 2010. After talking to him we went home and started to visualize how we wanted our backyard to look and sound. We wanted our yard to resemble the cliff's and streams you often find while driving through the country or walking in the woods. After checking out Chris' backyard we knew we had found the right guy. Our pool to pond project began in October of 2011 and was immediately followed by the fish pond redesign and renovation. The Re-Create crew were considerate, conscientious and very hard working. It was obvious they cared about the project and our family. The best part of the project for me was that any design idea I had, while watching the project come together, Chris and his crew already had the same idea as if they were reading my mind and were happy to figure out to make it happen. If you want to see some video of what went on in our back yard that Fall go to YouTube and search MsBear2327 or call us. Chris has our number and I gave him permission to give it out if anyone would like to talk about the project. We'd love to tell you how great and unique Nature's Re-Creations is and answer your questions as best we can."

"I manage a nature facility in Kirkwood, MO. Chris listened carefully to our ideas and never "told" us what we wanted. He was honest about what would work and said he could deliver our vision. After visiting some of his work sites, I was convinced. Chris' crew finished the job in eight days, and the work was impressive. The feature looks like an Ozark stream that has been flowing there for years. The feature is one of the most popular with the visitors and the animals that visit the feeders as well as a great example of wise use of resources. I have worked with many contractors over the years. Chris does business in a way that rivals the rest for courtesy, professionalism and commitment. He kept his word and kept us informed including checking in daily to make sure we were happy with the work. When they were finished the crew cleaned up the area and we could hardly tell they had been there. He made sure we knew how to use and take care of the feature and is always open to give advice should we need it. We got exactly what we asked for and then some. Chris even "saved the perfect rock" to add to the feature and it definitely is the focal point. I don't hesitate to recommend Chris to anyone looking for this type of work. He thoroughly knows his materials and business, and not only does fantastic work, but with courtesy and respect. His follow through and follow up is unsurpassed. Thank you Nature's Re-Creations for giving us the perfect feature!"

"Pond-O-Rama 2012 - Thank you once again for taking the time to answer questions, explain your concepts, and display your water garden. Your pond and the swimming pool pond that you designed for the two ladies were the BEST of the show. I hope you will be able to recoup some money from the sewer district. You should be a model for their brochures on how to be a good steward of our natural resources."
- Sincerely, Beth B.
"Dear Mr. Siewing, My husband and I were among the hundreds of awestruck patrons that experienced the 2012 Pond-O-Rama. We were impressed not only by your plant knowledge and superior design abilities but also with your family friendly approach. You and your wife were most kind to open you world to the public."
My husband and I decided we wanted a beautiful waterfall in our backyard after being inspired by our recent vacation to Hawaii. With all the gorgeous waterfalls there, we knew we had to have one of our own. However, being inspired by “mother nature” made us very picky!
We interviewed several local companies. Most of them were surprisingly cheap, which I was initially happy about. Disappointing though, they didn’t give us an actual plan/drawing, and told us they just “go with it” as the job progresses. Very scary! Then we met with Chris with Nature’s Re-Creations. It was obvious from the very beginning that he wanted to make our dream and vision a reality. He provided us a detailed drawing of what they would be doing and what would be included. He listened to what we wanted, and gave us some great suggestions too!
Chris suggested we attend the Pond-O-Rama to see the quality of work from various companies for ourselves. So we did. It was clear to us why Chris was so confident in his work…the other companies didn’t even come close to our vision of a “natural” waterfall. We visited at least 20 different homes/waterfalls on the tour. By the end, we could tell which company did the work just by looking at the waterfalls. We could recognize an awesome Nature’s Re-Creations waterfall immediately, but also could recognize the inferior waterfalls of a few other companies.
One local company saves money by turning flats rocks (flagstones) on their side at an “attempt” to look like boulders. It’s so obvious that you’re looking at a rock standing on end, it’s ridiculous. Also, none of them looked like they will still be there in 10 years, or at least without a lot of issues. If you stand a flagstone on its end, what in the world is holding it up….the other sideways flagstones below it?? I didn’t want to be asking myself that very question about my own waterfall. If this company did any type of outcropping, it didn’t look natural at all either. Seriously, at times I felt bad for the homeowner that THAT was their waterfall.
Another local company piles small, thin rocks one on top of the other. Many waterfalls made by this particular company weren’t even staggered (like stacked bricks), and looked like an unstable, total mess. It made me scratch my head wondering how in the world it’s not falling down! I wanted a sturdy, well-built waterfall that wasn’t going anywhere! I wanted to be able to walk up it, sit in it and let my dogs play in it. You definitely could not do that with this company.
Nature’s Re-Creations is, in my opinion, the best in the industry. You may see a difference in their prices compared to the other “cheap” companies, but you will definitely see a huge difference in the quality of the finished product. You get what you pay for, for sure! Nature’s Re-Creations uses REAL boulders, not flagstones turned on end, or small thin rocks piled up. They use top of the line pumps, liners, lighting, etc.
If you want an amazing, natural looking waterfall, you have to go with Nature’s Re-Creations. The name says it all! Be an educated consumer and don’t allow those other companies to try to fool you with their cheap alternatives. I will highly recommend Nature’s Re-Creations to anyone wanting a gorgeous waterfall!
