A Process Designed With Your Satisfaction In Mind

We know from our nearly two decades of contracting that clients coming to us overwhelmingly struggle with 3 common issues.

  • First of all, they struggle to visualize their project and understand how all the pieces fit together.
  • Then they struggle with understanding what things SHOULD cost. We know most people develop a space like this once or twice in a lifetime.
  • Lastly, they are concerned they might not get a quality finished project or unknowingly hire the contractor from hell.

What We Do

Because of those struggles that homeowners face – that’s why we generate scale 3d drawings. That way our customers can visualize the entire project before any construction begins. This eliminates the risk of you not loving your new backyard when it’s finished and gives you the opportunity to understand how all the components fit together.

We also discuss budget goals early in our process so that you know exactly what things will cost. The last thing we want to do is develop a design for you that is 5 times your targeted budget.

Our crews and craftsmen have been working with us for years and are responsible for all the pictures you’ll see on our website. We employ industry best practices and exceed manufacturer installation requirements. Our crews have the trade-specific tools and education to do the project right, the first time.

10 Easy Steps To Build Your Dream Outdoor Space

1. Fill Out Our Form

Share with us some details about the project you have in mind by filling out our form and sending us pictures of the current outside area you wish to transform. Attaching pictures of what you’d like it to look like goes a long way to helping us understand your goals.

2. Phone Consultation

We’ll schedule a phone consultation to hear more about your project and get an idea of what type of space you want to create. After we go over ballpark pricing, we schedule an in-person consultation to discuss your project further.

3. In-Person Consultation

During this consultation, we’ll talk about your project in-depth. We’ll discuss what you want to achieve, the atmosphere you hope to create, and the features you would like to have as we walk your space. We’ll also talk about timeline, materials, and the specifics of your budget.

4. Design Phase

After we have an understanding on project pricing and have all the information we need, we sign a design contract and get that process started. We’ll create a detailed design rendering of your outdoor area so that you can see exactly what your space will look like. The design fee starts at $1000, and is credited toward the job deposit when we begin construction.

5. Pre-Job Walkthrough

Before starting any work, we walk through the project site with our team leader and layout the space. During this walkthrough, we’ll answer any questions and explain exactly what will happen next. We’ll also make sure that everyone is on the same page before we break ground.

6. Protect Your home

We safeguard the parts of the your home that are not being worked on, protecting them from damages and debris. This can involve construction mats, tarps or other safety coverings.

7. Construction Phase

We start construction and work to get you your beautiful outdoor space as soon as possible. Our team works efficiently with our expert eye for detail and addresses any concerns you have so that you are comfortable throughout the entire process.

8. Cleaning Phase

Once the construction is complete, we get the space cleaned up and restore disturbed turf. Depending on what was done, we often pressure wash the exterior of the home.

9. Our Warranty

We stand behind our work and offer a 5-year workmanship warranty in addition to the manufacturer’s warranty that covers individual components. If a problem arises, feel free to use your warranty anytime you need it.

10. Our Follow-Up Process

To ensure you are happy with our work, we do a 12-month follow-up where we check in to see how things are going, and if there’s anything more we can do to be helpful.

Built a stone paver deck and walkways. 23 pallets of material. A two-month project. Excellent company to work with. The project included a large deck, walkways to a dock and gazebo.

My family and I could not have been happier with the job Conceptual Outdoor Design did at our new home. Nate and his team were nothing short of amazing. We interviewed a number of contractors for this portion of the project and after meeting with Nate and listening to his presentation and knowledge of installation, we hired him on the spot. His project included building a retaining wall, pool deck, driveway, front walk, mailbox and outdoor kitchen. The workmanship throughout was first class. During the course of our home build, we dealt with 50+ contractors.

I know this review may sound over the top about Conceptual Outdoor Designs, but it is 100% true. I’ve recommended him to two close friends and the one who ended up actually going through with their pool/sidewalk project used him with great results. I would recommend him for any project, large or small (he treats them equally important). I also would like to note that he stopped by two years later just to see how things were looking because he was in the area. What more can a customer ask for?
