When they moved to the country eight years ago, Todd and Susan Sexton knew that their longtime home of Lee’s Summit would continue to be an important part of their lives. With two successful businesses there, Lee’s Summit is where they continued to do the majority of their shopping and dining.

So when it came time to search for a company to help fulfill their vision of an outdoor living space, they turned to Turf Designers in Lee’s Summit. The company owner, himself, met with Todd and Susan at their home and, through several meetings, designed a space worthy of their beautiful home and wooded acreage.

After several weeks of dedicated work at the Sexton property, a beautiful and charming outdoor living space, complete with a fire pit, fountain, outdoor lighting and outdoor kitchen, emerged. This peaceful retreat is now a favorite spot for them to prepare and enjoy dinner, relax and enjoy nature, and also entertain family and friends.

Todd and Susan were so impressed with the workmanship and vision of this company that they approached the owner with the idea of purchasing it. Ultimately, Second Nature Outdoor Living and Landscaping LLC was launched, and the previous owner along with his crews came to work for the new company.

As the CEO, Todd has worked diligently since the Fall of 2015 to launch Second Nature with fully staffed for the Spring and Summer, adding crews as increasingly more contracts with homeowners and businesses were secured. Todd quickly developed the mowing and lawn treatment divisions through acquisition and ultimately hiring the previous owner of the lawn treatment business to oversee the lawn care department.

The talented design and development team at Second Nature team listens to and works carefully with clients to take their ideas and dreams and turn them into a reality through custom designed patios, decks, outdoor kitchens, irrigation systems, outdoor lighting, gardens, water features and many other outdoor living designs for clients. The designer and landscape crews are true craftsmen who pay attention to the smallest details when creating new outdoor living spaces.

Second Nature is also a full service lawn care company for residential and commercial outdoor spaces – offering lawn mowing, treatment applications, aeration, spring cleanups, lawn maintenance and during the winter months, also contracts for commercial and residential snow removal.

It’s now been a year since Todd and Susan founded Second Nature Outdoor Living and Landscaping. “We had a challenging first year and learned a lot,” says owner Todd Sexton. “We made hundreds of homeowners happy with their outdoor living space or lawn service this year and will continue to strive to be Lee’s Summit’s premier outdoor living and landscaping provider, bringing in the most talented people to assist you in realizing your dream of a beautiful outdoor living space.”
