Evaluating Outdoor Landscape Design Choices

Fire pits | Outdoor Living Spaces | Atlanta | Outdoor Makeover and Construction

So you’ve decided to update your outdoor landscape area. Now that you’ve made this decision, the next step is to start assessing your landscape design needs. There is so much more to updating your outdoor living area than picking out new flowers for your flower bed. What type of patio should you invest in? What are some of the positives to having stone versus wood outdoor flooring? Can my backyard’s foundation support heavy items such as a fire pit? Here at Outdoor Makeover and Construction, we want to help you answer these questions.

Wood vs Stone: Who wins?

Choosing the materials for your newly constructed outdoor patio can seem daunting. Do I go with wood or do I go with stone? While it does depend on the homeowner’s personal taste, there are other factors that can play a role in the decision. Areas with heavy rain fall or snow should choose stone due to the fact that excess moisture can warp wooden patios and walkways. There are ways to avoid this from happening but again, it is best for the homeowner to discuss this with their contractor before making a final decision.

Fire Features

Having a fire feature installed in your backyard is another very big decision. Some people see a fire feature (such as a fire pit) as being too ornamental or flashy. While fire pits do add a decorative visual element to your outdoor living space, there are so many different styles of fire pits and other fire features for homeowners to choose from that they can feel comfortable installing one that fits their own personal tastes. The aspiring chef can enjoy cooking homemade pizzas with their stone fire place or brick oven. Several fire pits can also be subbed out as a non-flammable center piece for outdoor gatherings.

Checking your Foundation

Before any work is done on your backyard or front yard living space, a smart homeowner should contact a landscape and construction company to make sure your foundation is in good enough shape to endure the construction process. This can be arranged by setting up a consultation with your local contracting company via phone or online. We at Outdoor Makeover and Construction care about your Atlanta home and landscape and want to make it as beautiful as you dreamed it could be. Call us today!

  • “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.”

  • “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!”

    Patrice & David Alpharetta, 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.”

    Amy & Joe Roswell, GA

  • “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!”
