Lawns By Nature owner Andrew Martin and his son Miguel.
Lawns By Nature is a locally owned and operated lawn and landscape company with a focus on customer service, versatility and affordability. The company is a member of the Better Business Bureau and has an A-plus rating, and is also a member of the Professional Landcare Network (PLANET) and the Oklahoma Landscape and Nursery Association.
“We’ve been in business for 13 years, and we’ve had some of our employees for over 10 years,” says owner Andrew Martin, who has been doing landscaping since he was 12 years old. “We service residential and commercial properties – our clients include a number of churches and nursing homes, as well as Firestone Tires.”
For just about anything you need, Lawns By Nature can help. “We do flowerbed installation, design and maintenance, extensive tree work, weed pulling, hedge and shrub trimming and pruning, soil cultivation, mulching, mowing, leaf removal, and debris hauling and cleanup. When winter comes, we do snow removal, too,” Martin says. “It doesn’t matter whether you’re a regular customer or just have a one-time project, or whether you want to have the work done in phases or all at once.”
Lawns By Nature puts a priority on doing excellent work and on being affordable. “On our tree work, we do better cleanup than your average tree company does,” says Martin. “And we’ll often include some landscape work as part of the proposal. We want to give you more for your money.”
Lawns By Nature’s attention to detail and emphasis on customer satisfaction separate them from the competition, Martin says. “We remove grass and weeds from the root, and we’ll go out with you and show you our work before we put down mulch. We always like to do a walkthrough with the customer when we finish a job to make sure the customer is happy and that we’re all on the same page.”
For football season, Lawns By Nature is offering fall flowers in your school colors. “We can do crimson and white, orange and white, and blue and gold,” says Martin. “It’s great – the husband gets to show his school spirit and the wife gets her flowers.”
Martin’s children have been involved with Lawns By Nature for a while now. “My son Miguel helps me on jobs,” says Martin. “My daughter Anissa will get in the dirt to plant flowers wearing her favorite dresses.” Martin welcomed a new addition to the family, daughter Lydia Marie, in April.
Martin is one of the few people left who doesn’t use email. “I like the old-school ways of contact,” he says. “I like to meet people in person, and to actually talk with them. I return all my calls promptly.”

Martin has also recently become a consultant for Scentsy Wickless Candles. Scentsy offers a variety of wickless candles, ceramic warmers, and other home fragrance products in a variety of decorative styles. “Because there’s no flame, it’s safer than a candle,” says Martin. “And there are more than 80 scents available.” Andrew also provides special discount offers and free items, including a full-size warmer or a wall plug-in, with minimum purchases.For more information, visit www.lawnsnscents.scentsy.us.
