Testimonials

Some of the following excerpts testify to our success... ...being a pool builder in the Los Alamitos area, of custom high end projects, I was looking to build the ultimate backyard at my own house. The selection of each portion of the project was crucial to the end result. I certainly feel that the rockwork you performed was outstanding and makes the yard truly have a realistic look. Your attention to detail and your willingness to work with me through the entire project was very professional. I would certainly recommend you... Los Alamitos, CA

...the feeling of being in the tropics, with waterfalls, caves, tropical plant life, slides appearing from the jungle, and last but not least the sound of running water to soothe a difficult day. I open my home and paradise in my backyard for anyone to come and see what Authentic Environments did for my family. We love our home and thank Richard and his crew for all their hard work. Costa Mesa, CA.


...thank you for the outstanding job you and your staff did in constructing the temple, and faux painting the poolside block walls, and you for personally creating the awesome handcrafted wall hanging, all of which magically helped transform the backyard pool area into a tropical paradise concept with a very unique twist. Please feel free to refer any prospective clients to me and I’ll be happy to speak with them. Huntington Beach, CA
Stacie and I (Chase and his friends too!) wanted to let you know how happy we are with our new backyard. Everyone who visits our home is very impressed with the way the pool turned out, especially the Rockwork and the waterfall. Everyone comments on how natural everything looks and all the kids just can’t get enough of jumping off the rocks. Everyday we look into our backyard and are amazed at the transformation that occurred and how it looks like it should be in the middle of a tropical paradise, rather than a backyard in Anaheim hills. We are very gratefull for your hardwork during the project (and Scotts too) and are extremely satisfied with your work ethic and attention to detail during the project. After working with many different people during our remodel, we would have to say that you went above and beyond our expectations and were very easy to work with the entire time. You transformed our ideas into what is now a mini tropical paradise in our own backyard! Richard we cannot thank you enough for the work you did in helping us have a backyard that we will enjoy for many years. Please fell free to contact us if you would like to have anyone view your work, just as some of your clients did for us. Anaheim Hills, California
We just wanted to let you know what a wonderful experience it was having you and your team do our rockscape. We had 3 other companies come out, but we knew the minute we met you that it was you that we wanted to design our water feature. We were not disappointed. We kind of knew what we wanted but you brought it all to life. Thank you so much! You created a little bit of paradise right in our own backyard. Blessings to you and your team! Keep up the good work! Thank you again! Huntington Beach, California
Richard and his company Authentic Environments were vital in designing and creating our “mini paradise” We now have a piece of the tropics in our own backyard. We can vacation at home anytime we desire. Many thanks to Richard and his talents as well as his crew for a creative job well done! Three waterfalls softly fall peacefully into our natural looking pool soothing to the eyes and ears, We love it! Costa Mesa, California
It is my pleasure to write this letter in response to the work performed on my residence in Costa mesa, California To begin, from our first appointment together, Richard was professional, clear and thorough in his presentation of his proposed ideas for our project. During and upon completion he always considered our desires his utmost concern. Not only did we receive the product and performance that Richard said we would, we also received undivided attention even at his own expense. Unfortunately, there are not enough adjectives to express how pleased we are with the work done at our home. Additionally, he proactively integrated his time and talents with the pool builder (Schwarz Custom Pools), and the landscaper (Preferred Garden and Landscape) in order to give the best results possible. As a licensed General and Electrical Contractor I am fully aware of how the construction business operates. Richard is an exemplary example of how any small (or large) business should operate. Our home will always be open to he, his family, and any perspective clients. Costa Mesa, California
Your rock creations are true pieces of art and your greatest compliment is when some of our friends exclaimed, “Really? You mean they aren’t real rocks?” I hope you will find occasion to stop by especially once the landscape is in, and don’t forget to keep us updated on all your projects. Best of luck, Richard, and if you need any recommendations, you can always count on us. Redondo Beach, California
