D-DIY: Don’t Do It Yourself

Why DIY Tutorials Are Not Always the Best

Consider Professional Help over DIY when it comes to big outdoor projects.

DIY tutorials: if you browse the Internet, you have undoubtedly seen at least one of these videos or websites pop up on your browser. In today’s technologically advanced world, the internet has become an incredible tool in helping people complete some pretty daunting tasks. People can use Youtube and Pinterest to learn complex makeup tutorials or how to make a scratching post for your cat. But sometimes DIY tutorials are not the best option, especially in home construction.
When it comes to your home or outdoor landscape, a professional is almost always the best route. First, everyone’s home and foundation stability is different. Just because a certain method worked for your friend on Youtube doesn’t mean that it will work for your home. You should have a professional inspect your home and make sure everything is stable and ready for the stress of construction before doing any hard labor.
Also, depending on the job, you may need a particular license to complete the task at hand. Certain outdoor work and home repair can be especially challenging and any mistakes can not only affect your home but also your neighborhood. Research the task you want completed and make sure that a specific license or certification is not required by law to complete the task.
Even if you feel comfortable to complete a construction task yourself, it is highly recommended that you still consult with various professionals to make sure what you want to achieve is a good idea and if you find out there are other options available, consider having a professional you trust doing it.

  • “While we had a general idea of some things we wanted done, Navid was able to envision a work product beyond that which we could have imagined. In addition to being very accessible, Navid was very customer focused and was intent throughout the project of ensuring that our expectations were met. We were amazed at his team’s ability to execute so quickly from “design” to final product. Expectations were more than exceeded, and we would certainly use Navid and Outdoor Makeover on future projects.”

  • “We contacted a number of landscapers before we found Outdoor Makeover. Navid and Omid worked hard on improving our front and backyard. They worked quickly and diligently and now we have a beautiful lawn and outdoor entertainment area. Their customer service was excellent. They called or emailed us a number of times just to make sure everything was right and we were satisfied. Great Job - Great Customer Service - Great People!”

  • “Navid and his team have exceptional vision and incredible talent for design.
    Outdoor Makeover delivered a plan that is much better than the competitors from design to build. I ended up with an exceptional result that I totally love and enjoy daily. I am very proud to show off my special area in my yard and everyone loves hanging outside now; Navid asked questions to figure out my lifestyle. Furthermore, Navid discovered what I needed and wanted, of which I was unaware when we started the process.”

  • “Navid and the Outdoor Makeover team are top notch. They found solutions within our price range and help us accomplish our most important priorities. Further, even after we paid them in full and needed them to come back to touch up some items, they came back within 1 week. This is UNHEARD of these days! I would highly recommend them to everyone!”

    Ryan E. Marietta, GA

  • “Last June, my wife and I contacted Outdoor Makeover regarding replacing the “weeds” in our front lawn with sod, replacement of all shrubs in the front and back yards and the planting several new trees throughout our property. Once we confirmed the design plan, the Outdoor Makeover crew got started immediately. The job soon took on a life of its own and Navid and his crew were ready and willing to be flexible and get the job done. It is a pleasure to work with a professional that understands the meaning of good communication and customer service. The project came out perfect and we are very happy with our new lawn, shrubs and trees. We look forward to a mutually beneficial, long-term relationship with Outdoor Makeover.”
