After getting quotes from a few landscaping companies, we decided to go with Navid and Outdoor Makeover. We are so thrilled with our choice. They redid our front landscaping and put in a new paver patio in the backyard. The end result is fantastic, and the entire process was professional, timely, and pleasant. Navid was very flexible about our schedule, and we really appreciated that. During the work, he and the team completed extra little items here and there that really upped the quality of the overall job, without upping the original quoted price. We have received countless compliments from the neighbors and would absolutely recommend Outdoor Makeover to anyone!

Navid and his team at Outdoor Makeover go above and beyond the client's expectations during the entire landscaping process. Navid's knowledge of design, hardscape, and irrigation puts him at the head of the pack. We recently hired Outdoor Makeover to design and construct an outdoor paver patio, which included a custom-made gas line fire pit. Navid was with us every step of the way always showing up on time and checking in throughout the day to make sure everything was up to our expectations. He really listened to our likes and dislikes and was able to help us create a design that was exactly what we were looking for. The project involved some major rock issues that were not anticipated. The team had to bring in extra equipment to navigate through the rock that added two additional days to the project. This was fine with me, but it cost Navid extra time and money. The crew arrived every day on time and stayed after hours several days, sometimes until after dark, in order to "get the job done right". Navid never complained once because he wanted to make sure everything was installed correctly. He did not charge me a penny over the agreed contract. We do and will continue to recommend Outdoor Makeover for any type of landscape/design project. From start to finish, they made us feel comfortable knowing that we put our trust in them. They are the best!!!

After talking to several business associates about landscaping, I chose Outdoor Makeover based on their rave reviews of Navid and his team. He arrived at my house, listened to my concerns/desires, walked the yard as we talked and came up with solutions, complete with pictures. Felt like I was talking to an old buddy from college rather than someone I didn't know. He made suggestions on top of what I needed, but my limited budget had to put those on hold for future days. But he was thinking right with me on each. While his team was so in demand I had to wait awhile before they arrived, when they did, they finished in no time. They removed a 20-foot spruce and replaced it with a smaller tree, rebuilt that bed, put in a drainage wall to prevent erosion on one side of the house and a dry creek bed on the other. Now, I can't wait for a massive rain storm to see it all in action. I'm already planning future projects for Navid and his team. They are worth the money and continually made sure I was happy with the result.

Outdoor Makeover is the only landscaping company I will use in the future. If you have a job and you want it done right, this is the company you can trust to make it happen. I am still startled every day that I walk outside and see the transformation of my backyard. For years, our backyard has gone unused because it was such a disaster. I decided to redo the yard to make it a viable play place for my young son. The owner, Navid, had lots of creative ideas and provided outstanding customer service. Within days of starting the project, his team had removed a massive tree stump and surrounding sinkholes, leveled a 2-foot drop in the yard, installed a dry creek bed to solve our drainage issue, took down a few trees, added several stone walls, and laid down some high-quality sod. In addition, Navid's team provided around $1000 in services and materials for free. Among other things, they built a new stone entryway to the backyard. I was so happy with phase 1 of the project that I asked the company to install a privacy fence. I sent Navid a photo from the internet of the type of fence we wanted, and his carpentry team recreated it *exactly*! To sum up my overall experience: I couldn't be happier with the final product. And more importantly, neither could my son. I plan to use Outdoor Makeovers again. I can't recommend them more highly.

Navid and his crew developed my landscape design, removed ~15 large trees/stumps, graded, installed multiple drainage solutions, grass, shrubs, and irrigation. I couldn't be happier with the experience and outcome. Navid is dedicated and committed to customer service. This is also apparent with his team. His second in command, Joe, was also amazing. Navid was available 24/7 to respond to calls and come on site to manage the crew and address any questions I had. I would highly recommend you consider Outdoor makeover for your landscaping needs.

Outdoor Makeover did a tremendous job, from the initial consultation to the completed project. Working with Navid and team was a great experience. Our front yard was in complete disarray. The team installed new sod and edged it cleanly, installed several dozen plants including an elm tree, redid a retaining wall that was falling apart, and installed several inches of hardwood mulch around all the new plantings. The initial consulting and design was a pleasant experience, and Navid was able to work within our budget. During install, the team came out and made quick work of transforming the front yard. They were able to salvage any plants we wanted to keep (transplanting some to the back yard). Navid even surprised us with a few hydrangeas that he planted in the back yard. They always kept us informed and involved in the project and ensured we were satisfied along the way. Upon completion, the team did a great job of cleaning up the area. I would definitely recommend Outdoor Makeover and would definitely use them again.

Naveed and the team at Outdoor Makeover truly gave our backyard a much needed makeover! We were pleased with the quality of work, and personal attention and regular communication we received from Naveed every step of the process. We've worked with designer/contractors on other home renovation projects and this was by far the best experience we've had. It was good to see the same work crews at our home each day, and at the end of nearly every work day Naveed did a personal walk through of the project with us to ensure we were happy with the work and discussed any issues that might arise and plan for the next day. Don't settle for less than the best...these guys take pride in their work, and it shows! We feel like we added a room to our house and have been enjoying our new gas fire pit and landscaping nearly every night this spring!

The entire experience of redoing my yard and building my new porch has been a tremendous experience. Navid led up a project to redo the entire front yard, which included leveling the land, taking out and installing a pathway and redoing the front stoop. Omid created a whole new back porch. The initial meeting was fun and enlightening. My fears that we could not create something wonderful had disappeared. Each time I worked with Navid and Omid it was a simple and easy flowing collaboration. Both times that they had crews at my home, everyone was professional and you could tell committed to doing a superior job. Each and every aspect of the job exceeded my expectations. There was never a time where I felt pressured to spend more money. In fact I felt just the opposite. They added extra plants, rocks, and lights. They included the details on the porch that took its appearance to the next level. Throughout the process both Navid and Omid were always there. Each day of the project they were there, personally guiding the work and making adjustments when needed. It was so great to having them there. I have and will continue to recommend Outdoor Makeover again and again. We are starting another project together this spring.

As I searched for a landscaper I found Outdoor Makeover and its 5 star ratings. It was hard to believe that a landscaper was that good but now I can understand why customers rated them so high. Navid and his team designed and installed what is now the envy of my neighbors, a beautiful makeover to a yard that was lacking in so many ways. I read about the "extras" that people talked about from their jobs and mine was no exception. Navid went above and beyond with turning the design into a reality without nickle and diming us along the way. The price he quoted was the price we paid and the results are amazing. I cannot fail to mention the second half of the dynamic duo which is Navid's brother Omid. Omid and his talented team built us a new deck that integrates seamlessly into the new landscape. You can't go wrong by choosing this team of talented brothers to realize your dreams of a perfect landscape.

I had an excellent experience with Outdoor Makeover! I did a complete entry makeover-- took out a large tree, touched up the portico, and had the walkway and front stairs replaced with pavers and stacked stone. They also built a small fence/gate and made significant repairs to my back deck. Not only were they a pleasure to work with, they are honest and trustworthy! The owner, Navid, was very clear about his emphasis on customer service and it showed. There were things that came up along the way that they covered at no charge, just to make sure that things were done right! I will definitely use them again and highly recommend them to others.

We selected Outdoor makeover because of Navid's amazing vision. His quote was straight forward and he and his team completed the job as planned. They were professional and personable. They exceeded our expectations for the initial phase of landscaping our yard. We will definitely call them for phase two!

Outdoor Makeover are not the cheapest but they deliver high quality work. The estimate process was straight-forward & very comfortable and personal. The resulting landscape plan was hand-drawn, as opposed to computerized and printed, however it was clear and captured the agreed-upon layout of the future state of the yard. Before the start of work we received excellent communications, and then the crew arrived exactly as agreed. Once on site, they shone. Outdoor Makeover has the right people at all levels, the right equipment and the right subcontractors to deliver what they promise, and they executed our plan amazingly. Throughout the process Outdoor Makeover's management was in close contact with us to ensure that they were on track towards what we envisioned, and indeed they nailed it: the yard is exactly what we asked for, and what we were promised. If we need more work, we will be calling Outdoor Makeover again.

Navid and his crew were outstanding! Outdoor Makeover completely transformed the outside of our house! When we moved in everything was very overgrown. You couldn't even see our house from the street! Navid came in and redesigned both our front and backyard!

We researched landscaping companies and were impressed by Outdoor Makeover's reviews, but mostly I loved looking through their portfolio. Four companies visited our yard and provided suggestions. The design and creativity that Navid provided won us over. He was patient with my suggestions and questions, but in the end it was his vision and the impressive talent of his team that created our beautiful space. Before Outdoor Makeover our lawn was an ugly hill of patchy grass, a sandy area and a huge oak tree. After a failed attempt by another company to fix the drainage, we knew we needed to look for someone we could trust. Our new yard looks like something you'd see in a magazine. Our curved wall transitions nicely into a large basketball court and our paver patio looks like a tuscan retreat. They also redid the backyard sprinkler system so that our new lawn practically maintains itself. We will do some additional planting and lighting in a future phase. Navid's team finished the transformation in just 5 days. The friendly and polite crew impressed us each day with the amount of work they accomplished. Everything was cleaned up. They hauled away old play set equipment and trash -at no charge- that we had tried to clear before they got here . They even pressure washed our driveway. We love to enjoy and entertain in our new backyard.
