I have been using Outside for over 2 years now and I can say it is a pure joy to work with them. My landscape designer is Kerri and she is phenomenal. She listens to all of my worries and wants and is able to design a landscape that meets all of my needs. Our project (basically redesigning our entire front and backyard) is a multi-phased project which I actually prefer. It allows us to do it affordably and gives us mini goals. And Kerri says that she is always looking forward to my call each fall and spring. Their crew is extremely professional, courteous, and knowledgeable. If you want it done right, give them a call!

I'm a big do-it-yourselfer, so I my expectations are rarely met when I hire someone else to do work on my home. In this case I was highly satisfied. Our home initially had no usable private yard. We wanted to turn our small sloping side yard into a usable courtyard. We knew it would be complex with the slope, utility easements, water and sprinkler supply lines to move, downspouts to rework, etc. After talking to a couple other contractors who could barely bother to create a design, Rick sold us. He planned out our vision and nailed it with his design. Although his services are not cheap, he steered us on design elements that would yield the best value. We needed to wait a few weeks for their schedule to free up, but I'd rather not have the project start artificially early only to drag on. Once they got started, they quickly moved through to completion in about a week in our case. Rick's crew is hard-working and efficient. We did have a couple problems with a broken water supply, but Rick was on top of it and made sure we were fixed up quickly. They also made sure the site was kept in good order and cleaned up our surrounding yard and street at the end. I highly recommend OLG to anyone with a large or complex landscape project.

Outside Landscape Group recently completed a major renovation of our entire backyard which greatly exceeded our expectations. During our first meeting, Rick listened closely to our thoughts/expectations and quickly embraced our vision. Within a few weeks and a couple of on-site visits by his staff, Rick provided an artist concept of our redesigned yard, we were ready to get started. Rick's team was on site/on time every day without fail. His team exhibited a work ethic that is rarely seen today. Craftsmanship and attention to detail is second to none. As a matter of fact, we were so impressed as his team began to construct our water-feature, we asked if it would be possible to increase the size to something our grandchildern could play in similar to a pool. Rick quickly developed a hybrid water feature/pool that is out of this world. While our project took several weeks to complete, my family looked forward each day to the crews arrival and the transformation taking place right before their eyes. With such a high-end project we have paid close attention to detail. Our project was not cheap, but worth every cent. Rick recently performed a final inspection of all work performed and noted a few minor exceptions that did not meet his expectations (minor issues that we did not notice). All remaining issues were promptly addressed. I cannot imagine ever using anyone other than Ouside Landscape Group.

When we built our house, our builder did not grade our lot properly. We were in desperate need of assistance to make our back yeard presentable and useful. Rick sat down with us, reviewed the space, provided a plan and quickly made our backyard a paradise we use almost every weekend. The creative effort and attention to detail were amazing. We could not be happier with our new living space and would highly recommend Rick and his team for any project, large or small!

We hired Rick, Keri and crew to update our boring half dead back yard. While we loved the first plan they developed, the costs were more than we wanted to spend. So we worked with them to develop a plan that still included all the major things we wanted (waterfall, stone stairs, dozens of plants, removal of front yard tree and new grass for the whole yard. OLG did a terrific job on the whole project. Communication was great and everything turned out even better than I had hoped for. I highly recommend OLG!

We just recently had the sod replaced in the backyard and the front foundation landscaping redone after ten years. Rick and his team fair exceeded our expectations. The entire staff were professional, punctual and very knowledgeable. I was concerned about the clean up due to all the rain - not a problem! The team cleaned the entire area. When I arrived home my yard was newly landscaped and freshly manicured. It looked amazing. OLG knows the meaning of true customer service. They continue to follow up to ensure all aspect of the job are completed to the customer's full satisfaction. We have used OLG twice and each time has been a complete success. Highly recommend to tackle any size project for a worry free experience. You truly get what you pay for and beyond. You are in good hands when using OLG.

Our backyard was an overgrown, half-dead mess. Doug came out, provided us with a plan, scheduled our appointment for installation and then the work began. The crew did a wonderful job, Doug was on-site to check their progress and the design and we ended up with what I call an enchanted garden. Outside Landscape Group is a great example of how to manage and operate a business in order to get repeat customers and referrals. I love my yard and plan to use them again this spring to add some additional plantings.

After months of having my front yard (post house renovation) a barren muddy mess, Rick and his team have turned it into an oasis. Rick took my ideas and implemented them flawlessly. His crew was really terrific on-site and Rick's suggestions made sense so we went with almost all of them. OLG is pretty pricey but you do get what you pay for and superior landscaping like this adds real value to my home.

We started out working with Rick and his team in the spring of 2010 to work on our front yard. We feel the design and implementation was certainly above average and added value to our home. When it came time to work on our backyard this summer, we didn't hesitate to use Outside Landscape again. The design Rick presented us with was exactly what we were looking for and although we went over budget (our decision) the end product exceeded our expectations. You will pay a premium for Outside Landscape but with that comes premium results. If you are ready to take your landscaping to the next level, you should consider calling Outside Landscape.

OLG did a fantastic job on our project this fall! Very budget minded, very creative and very knowledgeable. The crew was great too. The plantings and hardscape work are top-notch. Our neighbors are still complimenting our new landscape. Highly recommend.

We just had OLG come in for a complete design/build project. We absolutely loved Kerri's design and the end results are better than we could have imagined. The crew was very professional, clean, and their hard work is greatly appreciated! I would definitely recommend for any of your landscaping needs

I was referred to Outside Landscape and Rick, the owner, by a contractor that built a home for me. After our initial visit, I knew I had found a great company. They removed my old brick patio and replaced it with an updated, 3 level, patio with hot tub and fire pit. I used to never go out back but since I have the new patio, I am out there practically everyday, grilling out, and entertaining. I would highly recommend Rick and Outside Landscaping for any job you may have.

From design to installation, Rick and his team did a fantastic job. We had our front yard landscaped 9/13/2010 to 9/16/2010. The job included tree removal, stump grinding, canopy limb-up, shrub removal, new plantings and zoysia sod. We were concerned about the shadiness of our yard and OLG was the only group that recommended that our beautiful maple tree be removed to ensure a healthy lawn. Other contractors did not take the time to visit our yard during different times of day to make an educated call. Rick did. Thank you OLG for a great job. Rob and Charlotte

Rick has a talent for designing overall landscapes. While our initial request was to landscape a small portion of our backyard, Rick very quickly sketched out a design for the entire area. It was easy to visualize how he could transform our ordinary backyard into something that was not only usable but beautiful. He listened to our suggestions and incorporated them into the design as much as possible. His subcontractors were top notch. Beautiful work, cleaned everything up nicely, very courteous. For follow up concerns, Rick has been very reliable addressing any areas needing attention. We would easily recommend them to anyone.

Reviews for this group were mixed...We had Rick design a plan for our yard & are DELIGHTED with the design. Pricey, but gorgeous. Started w/one phase to start and see how things went. This was planting a row of cypress' behind our home to ultimately provide a screen between our property & the commercial property behind us. We were out of town when they did the work and came home with high hopes. We were disappointed. The number of trees they thought would cover the length of the property line were too few. They didn't call or discuss, just left it with a big gap at one end. We immediately asked about it and were told basically 'you weren't here to ask so I just made the decision to leave it like this - I can see that you would need more trees - you'll have to pay for those.' After a couple of weeks of complaining he agreed that he would finish the screen and he even threw in a drip-line. The screen is complete and gorgeous. -Almost 6 months later and we've asked multiple times for him to come take a look at some yellowing we see... May 6th Rick came today to look at the trees. Told us they all look healthy but one - he'll replace it under warranty if needed after he sends guys to re-do the root ball & see if it takes. cool. He left in a huff after we asked if his crew'd clean up the dead spots...said we were unreasonable...I thought he was cancelling. So he jumped in his truck and drove off! He replaced the tree - with a stunning one!! yay

Outside Landscape Group implements Green Waste which separates organic material from the non-organic waste. This material is then recycled into our hardwood mulch which we use as a material on our projects. We also use asphalt millings in our storage yard which is recycled asphalt which is pervious and promotes rain water into the soil. We use recycled materials whenever possible and our office recycles and is green friendly. We also use green friendly practices when installing projects.
