Navid along with his team of waterfall and lighting experts turned my backyard into a magical experience. My yard had a great start; however, it needed the touch of some highly talented design expertise to make it a wonderful experience. The waterfall, lighting and trees that were added to my backyard enhance my home where one will want to just relax and listen to great music while enjoying all the fabulous surroundings From the design, project management and support provided, Navid and his team went above and beyond. I would recommend them to friends and family for beautiful, quality, work at a good value.

Navid completely overhauled our front yard, which was quite a challenge due to amount of shade involved from neighboring trees. He worked with us to come up with a design that fit our budget and personal tastes. We've been very happy with the end result. Navid is very easy to work with, and his office team and ground crew work hard to get the details right. Whenever we had questions/special requests, Navid and his team were very attentive. These are definitely folks that want your business and will do what it takes to keep it. Attitude makes all the difference.

This past April Navid and his crew came out and reconstructed my backyard with a new stone deck, planted new zoysia grass and installed trees and plants. It looked awesome and they did a great job. Navid always wants to make sure you are happy with the work done and will not leave until you are a 100% satisfied. Then the rain came... first i had poor drainage and my plants were drowning so i called and he came out immediately and put in a dry creek bed at no charge which helped a lot. The rain kept coming and didn't stop for months so by October five of my nice trees had died. I was especially sad to see both my japanese maples died. I called Navid and he came out immediately and said he would change all the plants at no charge. What a relief because i was so upset that 5 had died! Navid always returns my texts and calls and is so easy to work with. Him and his brother are awesome and if you are looking to have your yard done with either landscaping or hardscape call him. Navid also went over and installed a huge waterfall feature at my neighbors house and it looks great! My neighbor is extremely happy with the work done. I am having Navid do my front yard in the next couple weeks so i will let you know how it goes. Happy landscaping!

The entire job came out better than we had hoped except one tree just wasn't able to make it. Not only did Navid and members of his team follow up on the progress of that tree but when it became apparent that it was dying he replaced it under warranty immediately. And I mean immediately. He does what he says he will when he says he will do it. A characteristic I would think any consumer wants from a vendor. Highly recommend Outdoor Makeover for your outdoor landscape/hardscape needs.

We wanted to transform an area in our backyard without breaking the bank. I figured I would start with companies that had glowing reviews on Kudzu, and I contacted three of them. The first did not go any farther than a phone call, when the owner realized that we weren't going to spend enough to make the cover of Architectural Digest. The second was pleasant enough, but it was obvious that we weren't going to get a detailed plan, or an estimate, without weeks of discussions, meetings, visiting stone suppliers, etc. Navid was like a breath of fresh air. He said "This is what we do every day". He listened to what we wanted, and within a couple of hours had drawn up a workable plan, gave us options, and told us what it would cost. Work commenced within about three weeks, and they did not stop until it was done (3 days). Navid was there for part of every day, and both he and his employees were extremely responsive to any questions, concerns or modifications. Cleanup and "sprucing up" after the job were impeccable. It was a pleasure working with Navid and his company, and I feel like we actually got more than we paid for. Highly recommended.

Absolutely amazing to work with. Navid took my vision and made it a reality. His team was extremely professional and the artistry done to my dull landscape to make it come to life was second to none. Compared to my neighbors, my property looks like paradise. Very fair, extremely friendly, and unbelievably focused on delivering customer satisfaction - I know I found one company in the Atlanta area that I will be using for decades to come.

If you are like me, this site is assisting you in finding a contractor for a project that intends to bring a bit more happiness to your life by improving a portion of your home or landscape. There is no doubt that you should, at the very least, allow Outdoor Makeover an opportunity to compete for your business. My Story: I purchased a house which had a large screened in porch and overgrown backyard, neither of which had been touched sine the 1960's. There were issues all over the place: the railing on the porch was not up to code, the screen was ripped and loose in various places, our two AC units were on the back of the house instead of the side, ivy and trash trees had overtaken the back yard, a primitive flagstone grill with embedded rebar was a relic beneath the ivy, numerous dips and air pockets throughout the yard, and an ill-planned driveway which featured an unused parking pad. Navid, the owner of Outdoor Makeover came out to see me on a Friday afternoon and we ended up talking about the project for over an hour. He was in no rush and was genuinely interested in hearing what we wanted to achieve. . In addition, Navid had the resources to relocate the Air Conditioners to the side of the house and introduce his brother, Omid, to me who runs the construction unit of the company that could assist with the screened in porch. The project was a head turner from start to finish with neighbors commenting throughout the process. The end product was incredible.

We had a yard that we were struggling with. We knew what we wanted but not how to explain it or carry it out. With our first meeting, Navid understood what we needed and wanted. The plan was beautiful. The execution of the plan was equally wonderful. The workers worked harder than any group that we've ever seen. They were able to get everything done within 1 day. It was a seamless experience and it's beautiful.

Landscaping of our new home had not been cared for in years, so we knew that was going to be one of the first things we took care of. I contacted Outdoor Makeover because of all of the positive reviews, and the did not disappoint. The service started out with a very lengthy consultation. After the consultation, we settled on the following updates: clean-up of the existing landscaping; removing a very large cherry tree from the front yard; and planting a number of new shrubs, ground cover and trees. His team took two days to complete the job. They removed the tree the first day. The next day a very large crew came over to clean up the yard - removing a number of old trees and relocating some others - and to plant a number of new plants. Navid was not able to be there all day, but he assured me that I would be well taken care of. The crew did not disappoint. He was able to check on the progress towards the end of the day and made a number of suggestions to improve upon what the crew had already done. He had the crew do a few things over to ensure it was just right, and he wouldn't let them leave until I was completely satisfied with the job. Overall, a great experience. I would recommend using Navid and his team to anyone. I will be calling them again when it's to tackle that back yard.

Our front yard was a disaster - Navid and his folks make it beautiful! Finished the job this week and have had many complements already. Re-did lawn area and added pinestraw garden areas w/perennials and shrubs. Navid listened to what I wanted (easy care, drought tolerant - we have no sprinkler system). He worked well within the budget we had. It is perfect! Beautiful design, gorgeous plants/shrubs. He is so creative! Clean up was perfect too. No hidden costs/increases. He suggested a few things and I asked for a few things over, and he clearly let me know the cost. Were here when they said they would be, and Navid and the guys were always very responsive to phone/emails. I can't wait to have more work done! I love my new front yard!

I have used Outdoor Makeover on three separate occasions, most recently this Spring (2013) and the service has been consistently great. The work has included multiple types of paths (both hardscape and natural), shrubs, bushes, ground cover, etc. as well as sod installation. I have a large shady, woodsy lot and Navid has great ideas and has helped it really come alive. Because my yard suffered from many years of neglect and there was major work to do, I have done separate projects in the fall and spring for the last 3 seasons. Both Navid and his employees go out of their way to make sure everything is done exceptionally well; everyone is hardworking, and very helpful and courteous. I would definitely recommend Outdoor Makeover for your landscaping projects.

I highly recommend Outdoor Makeover to anyone who has a yard project, big or small. Navid is a great guy who works very hard to please his customers. The job was completed in less than two weeks from the time I first contacted Outdoor Makeover. That's pretty unbelievable for a job in Midtown Atlanta. And the quality certainly did not suffer. The guys who work for Navid are top quality workers. They were such a pleasure to have around and worked their butts off to make me happy. The concrete slab they poured is perfect, and the fence they built looks great. Navid is a true landscape artist, and I love the idea he came up with for our back yard. He is also very fair with his pricing. The price he quoted me is the price I paid. There were no unexpected upcharges. He goes the extra mile to make sure his customers are pleased with the work product, even if he has to dip into his own pocket. That's what I love about Outdoor Makeover. You know they're going to take care of you. We are LOVING our new back yard. It truly enhances our lives, and for that, I cannot thank Outdoor Makeover enough!

After years of band-aids and cheap fixes to our back yard, we were ready to give up on our dream of having an inviting outdoor space. Between the oppressive heat, the abundance of shade, two active kids and a large breed dog, nothing ever seemed to survive. I decided to take one last plunge and hire a professional landscape architect to customize something just for us. I called a variety of contractors and Navid was an easy choice. Not only was he the fastest to respond to my inquiry, he also spent several hours just sitting on our back porch coming up with ideas. His final design was something we could never have envisioned on our own, including a large patio, multiple water features, a fire pit with gas line, stacked stone, irrigation system, outdoor lighting, major regrading and all new plants and sod. We negotiated a fixed price contract within my budget and he delivered as promised. It was obvious throughout the entire process that customer satisfaction is Navid's #1 priority. We love our new yard and recommend Outdoor Makeover every chance we get.

Outdoor Makeover recently finished a front yard makeover at my home. Navid, Joe and his team did a wonderful job of removing our old, tired landscaping, including the lawn, then re-graded the property, installed new stacked stone walls, sod, bushes, and irrigations system. The quality of workmanship, materials used and customer service were excellent from Outdoor Makeover. They also completed a fire pit project in our back yard. I highly recommend them to other homeowners. Navid has a very personal touch with customers and delivers what he commits to during the project. We are very satisfied here in Johns Creek, Seven Oaks development.
