Outdoor makeover: Our-History


For five generations, the Derakhshan family has worked as real estate developers, builders, designers, and contractors. Navid and Omid Derakhshan, the co-founders of Outdoor Makeover & Living Spaces, began their careers at an early age, helping out on their father’s construction sites. Navid, an Emory-trained biologist, and Omid, a civil engineer from Georgia Tech, started Outdoor Makeover & Living Spaces in 2001 under the leadership of their father.The seamless integration of two very different disciplines from Navid and Omid is what introduced the concept of Outdoor Makeover & Living Spaces to the metro Atlanta area. Today, led by CEO & co-founder Navid Derakhshan, Outdoor Makeover & Living Spaces offers an all-inclusive and holistic approach to landscape and construction services with the full capability to re-envision any outdoor space.

We believe in good quality service in every aspect and install long-lasting projects backed by the longest warranty in the industry. We build it right, and promise to exceed your expectations! Throughout our many years of providing exceptional service, the company has been awarded “Best Atlanta Contractor” by Angie’s List, has achieved over 200 awards collaboratively, and is truly living up to the title of ‘Best in the Business’!

Omid, a civil engineer from Georgia Tech, has a passion for real estate and construction. As a co-founder of Outdoor Makeover & Living Spaces, he diligently worked on projects and displayed professionalism and honesty all along the way. He is proud of his legacy within the company, and the satisfied clientele that continues to grow every time another outdoor makeover project is completed.

Navid Derakhshan, Founder of Outdoor Makeovers and Living spacesNavid’s passion for the outdoors has always influenced his life. There’s no doubt about this since he started an entire company around it. Navid’s company, Outdoor Makeovers and Living Spaces is devoted to helping other people discover the same passion and get attuned to that side of them that loves the outdoors. His company brings an opportunity for clientele from all backgrounds and socio-economic statuses to enjoy fresh, organic food and a beautiful backyard. Furthermore, through donations, Navid’s company helps improve the lives of those who cannot afford landscaping services.

Outdoor Makeover’s Charity Movement

Navid’s desire to bring this wonderful opportunity to everyone has grown into a generous foundation. His company, Outdoor Makeover, has founded a charity movement that donates a vegetable garden to charities housing orphans, seniors, handicapped, and incapacitated persons who need help and would enjoy delicious fresh produce. The goal of Outdoor Makeover’s charity is to donate two vegetable gardens to our community per year. We are here to ask you to help us find charities that could use a beautiful vegetable garden to help those in need spend more of their time outdoors with a garden to enjoy. We know that little effort goes into making the outdoors entertaining since our entertainment is often limited to the indoors with television. By donating to these vegetable gardens, we want to give an opportunity to our friends in these charities to have fun outside.

Play in dirt—get dirty.

We think there’s nothing better in this world than seeing a whole season’s endeavor in a well-cared-for garden pay off in fresh vegetables that no store can compete with. We all love fresh food, and many of our clients try to grow their edibles. We’re thinking about all the people who need a head start to get them on the right track or those who have never been exposed to the culture. We hope to help fill that void. Please help us to find qualified charities that could use our effort. If you would also like to donate to our cause, we will accept and use your funds to grow these vegetable gardens. Please email us at design@outdoormakeover.net to nominate or donate towards benefiting a charity with a beautiful, home-grown vegetable garden.

Consultation Vouchers Donations

So many generous Atlantans give their time or money to help nonprofits whose mission aligns with their beliefs and values. We want to help. We would like to donate 2 to 4 Standard consultations to select nonprofits of our client’s choice. These Consultation Vouchers to Nonprofits valued at $500 can be auctioned and they usually bring $250 to $400 to the nonprofit each. Please email us and explain to us how your nonprofit is helping our community and how we can help!
