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.

After much online research, my wife and I chose Outdoor Makeover to do some extensive landscaping of our front yard and one side yard. The results are wonderful, and our opinion has been reinforced by a large group of our surrounding neighbors' glowing compliments. Our wonderful new look—including rocks large and small, retaining wall, some resodding, new plants and a tree, small circular sidewalk, a new walkway, and a herb garden—was attained by the core of what makes a landscape professional truly outstanding: experience and honed expertise, design creativity, attention to detail, flexibility geared to our wishes and checking account, a solid team of equally capable workers, and the ability to produce results at the highest level on budget and on time. We recommend without reservation Navid and all of the others at Outdoor Makeover who were involved in giving us a new and lovely yard.

We hired Outdoor Makeover to solve some drainage issues and give our backyard and overall spruce-up. We achieved all that and more! Navid had creative solutions and great vision for our space. He worked with our budget to maximize results. We enjoy our new backyard everyday and would recommend Navid in a heartbeat! Services provided: grading, drainage, concrete patio, fire pit, retaining wall (doubles as a wall for sitting around the fire pit), new sod

We hired Navid and the Outdoor Makeover team after several months of searching for someone to re-do our backyard. My wife and I did not have a vision for the yard - just knew it was awful and had to change. Navid spent hours with us sketching out what he saw as the vision for the yard after listening to our needs - including retaining wall, fire pit, extended patio, garden with walkway, lighting, etc. On top of that, he spent a couple hours helping us select exactly the plants that fit our specific needs - such as growing in shade, ground/hill cover, and climbing vines. We hired Outdoor Makeover because of the creativity and vision in designing the yard. Along the way, Navid and team went above and beyond the original scope of the work to do the job right - like cutting down some tree branches to modify the sunlight in the yard, extra plants, better walkway stone, significantly improved drainage and irrigation fixes, etc. The quality of the craftsmanship and masonry work was clear. They did everything we expected and more - and got our input every step of the way. It's great to finally have found a contractor that understands customer service! Now, we're thrilled. The vision/sketches came to life exactly like we were hoping. The backyard has been totally transformed into an outdoor living room - better than the stuff you see on Yard Crashers. Great job by the Outdoor Makeover team, we highly recommend!

This was really unbelievable. I had essentially let my backyard run amuck for 5 years and was at a point where I did not know even where to begin. Fortunately, Navid not only knew where to begin but had a vision as to where we would end up. Once the job started he and his crew worked vehemently for 2 days to get there. In 48 hours my yard went from a disaster to something you would see at a resort. I used to dread having to step out to my yard but now I am now relishing every time I see it.

We hired Outdoor Makeover to clean up our yard, put up a fence, and to prepare an area of the yard for a play set. My initial meeting with Navid included explaining what I wanted done and my budget. We walked the property and talked about what I wanted done. Navid then provided an estimate on everything. Even though some of it was out of my budget he worked with me to come up with a plan of what I could do within my budget and suggestions that would be less expensive than what I had initially thought I wanted.. There was no pressure from him to spend more than what was in budget. I had been told that it would be a 2 or 3 weeks before they could get started. However, they started the project earlier than expected, which was great. Navid introduced me to the crew and supervisor and the men got to work. His crew were amazing, very,polite, neat, and professional. Each day I was walked through what was done and asked if I was happy with the work, which I was. Omid and Navid and their crew went over and beyond to ensure that I was happy. I was thrilled with the little extras that also got done with this project. The crew ended up cutting down a few more small trees than expected, attached a gutter, buried some drainage pipes that had never been buried, ect. All at no additional cost. I couldn't be happier and my yard has never looked better. I would highly recommend Outdoor Makeover to anyone looking to have outdoor work done.

Our backyard was in desperate need of a facelift, and Outdoor Makeovers came to the rescue! The original landscaping was 20 years old and we knew we needed to update, but we had such an awful experience with the original crew we were reluctant to trust anyone. Thankfully, we contact Navid and immediately felt comfortable with him. He had great ideas and worked with us to correct the problem areas and create a wonderful new space. In addition to the landscaping, we had a new fence, deck stairs and an arbor installed. The workmanship was fantastic! This past winter was cold and a few of our plants did not make it through. When we emailed Navid, he immediately came out and replaced the dead plants. Now that Spring is finally here, we can't wait to enjoy our new backyard. Thanks Navid!

I can't recommend Outdoor Makeover enough! They have done two separate projects for me. The first was just general landscaping and some hardscaping for our .9 acre lot. They nailed it. They stuck to their original quote and gave me way more for my money than I had hoped. Extra plants, a stone bench, and to top it all off, after some of the plants died due to the huge freeze, Navid and his crew came back and replaced them a YEAR AFTER they had been planted. I think two of them had been eaten by some kind of mole but they did it any way! The second job was similar to the first in terms of quality and service. OM build a large path from our driveway all the way down to the lower back yard. Close to 100 yards. They gave me a better price and better materials than the closest competition and worked me into the schedule to get it done before a large outdoor event at our home. 2 days notice! All the stone was exactly like i'd hoped and they had me review the job the whole time they were in process. If something needed changing or adjusting they did it, no arguments or debating, just, "Sounds good. We'll take care of it." I could keep pontificating but I'll just say one more thing. I will use them for all of my landscaping jobs in the future.

I had to have two large oaks removed from my front yard. It was a mess. I called OM on Monday. They gave me a great plan. On Friday everything was installed. It looks great. I have received a lot of complements from friends and neighbors.

We recently had our backyard made over by Outdoor Makeover and could not be happier! Navid came over on a Sunday evening to discuss ideas and within two weeks the project was underway. You can tell that Navid and his team take a lot of pride in their work. Navid was constantly checking in while the work was being done to make sure we were satisfied with the progress. He even went above and beyond our expectations. He offered us $200 worth of shrubbery that he was unable to use and planted them all at no extra cost! He removed four trees and some limbs off others, transplanted a tree and other shrubs that we already had. He also only charged us for 2 palates of sod instead of 3 b/c one of the palates was left over from a previous job (even though it was basically a full palate). My husband chose to lay the sod himself in order to save money. After the guys had finished their work, Navid offered to send his guy w/ the bobcat back to our house to rake the ground so that my husband wouldn't have to rake it himself before laying the sod. Navid noticed a bad spot in our drive way and offered to have his guys patch it up for us with their left over concrete. He even offered to haul stuff away for us while they were there with their truck. He did all of this complimentary to us!

I called Navid at Outdoor Makeover after my wife ordered an outdoor playhouse for our daughter for Christmas. I highly underestimated the site work required and needed assistance. Navid responded immediately and did great work in time for the big delivery from Santa Claus. The work was very high quality and the crew was very professional. I highly recommend them for future projects!
