Tommy Klein

I founded Natural Scapes because I was tired of bombarding customer’s properties with harsh chemicals just so they could have the perfect lawn. Natural Scapes represents my personal philosophy to landscaping; I believe in working with what nature has given us to create a unique, functional, and aesthetically pleasing environment.

Thomas Klein, Jr.

I recently graduated from The University of North Carolina at Charlotte with a degree in Business Management and am excited to use my knowledge to help run my family’s business. Working with my father to grow and expand Natural Scapes has allowed me to promote ethical business practices and contribute to the local small-business community.
