The Brothers


For five generations, the Derakhshan family has worked as real estate developers, builders, designers, and contractors. The Makeover Brothers of Outdoor Makeover & Construction started in contracting, construction and landscaping at age 8. Omid and Navid Derakhshan started with hard hats, shoveling sand and transporting it to a job site. Now they are voted the “Best Atlanta Contractor” by Angie’s List Magazine. Their father, Mr. Abdy Derakhshan, Mechanical Engineer from Washington State University, holds many licenses and credentials and is the foundation upon which Omid and Navid built their success.

The two brothers worked on their father’s construction site from an early age. While attending high school, at the age of fourteen, they began their own business journey when they became the owners of a landscape and construction company. Navid’s passion for the outdoors drove him to landscape design and beautifying yards. Omid’s love of construction, building, and architecture drove him to build new homes in the metro Atlanta area, following in his father’s footsteps. They kept their business open while Navid earned his biology degree at Emory University, and Omid was earning his civil engineering degree at the Georgia Institute of Technology. With integrity, honesty, knowledge, enthusiasm, and the leadership of their father, they have been in business professionally since 2001.

Navid remembers: “We were raised with an entrepreneurial mentality. Mr. Derakhshan, our father, was stringent when it came to discipline, education, ethics and respect for others. He strongly emphasized diligence. At the age of eight, Omid and I started working for him and earning our own wages in construction sites that he developed in the summertime. We started working three days after moving to Atlanta and we have never stopped working since. We can attribute our solid and steady growth to our upbringing. We love our clients, and they love us back. This fuels our drive for perfection.”

“I had a love of the medical field and Omid was passionate about engineering. We worked long hours and studied even longer. It finally paid off when we were each accepted to our favorite institute: Emory University and Georgia Institute of Technology. We had two priorities: to make a name for ourselves at our institutes and to sustain the company for whom we had given our hard work in exchange for the skills we had learned. With strategic thinking and proper planning, we excelled at both. Omid graduated with highest honors as a civil engineer and I graduated at the 96th percentile from Emory University with a biology degree. It was an enormous lifetime goal accomplished. I decided that medicine was not right for me due to my love of the outdoors. I realized then that I was highly skilled at one thing: landscape design. I have spent my whole life landscaping and gardening. Similarly, Omid has spent his whole life in construction. I decided to devote myself full time to designing outdoor spaces. I turned my full attention to revamping Outdoor Makeover & Construction with new systems to attract great employees with creativity and intelligence, while maintaining competitive pricing, and showcasing our years of experience and ethical, fair business practices. The fruits of our labor are innumerable happy clients with amazing outdoor spaces.”

Secret of Our Success: Two Departments, One Company


The foundation of our success builds on our eagerness to improve by bringing new techniques, obtaining higher education and attending continuing education seminars in our fields.  This is because we are adamant about perfecting our skills and contributing to quality. We believe in standards set by experts in the field and not a “this worked last time, we will be fine” mentality. Anything less than standard or code implies cutting corners, which is against company policy in order to protect Outdoor Makeover & Construction’s admirable reputation.


When mistakes, though rare, happen, we are the first to bring it to your attention. We’ll gladly fix it and make sure you are happy with the result. We are the ultimate satisfaction machines. We communicate with you, we joke with you and we laugh with you. We never rush you or make you feel uncomfortable. We are creative with design and solutions and we’ll impress you every time. We do not take advantage of unexpected cost; in fact, we will absorb as many of them as possible and avoid project creep. Our team members are the most professional employees you’ll see in the field. We make it a great company to work for and employee satisfaction reflects in our work.
Higher education emanates through the business. Co-owner Omid graduated with the highest honor at Georgia Tech and uses the knowledge he gained on every construction-related project. His brother, co-owner Navid, uses his knowledge of biology, a natural science, in dealing with plants, physics and chemistry. Different educational backgrounds, yet both elevate common sense and problem solving to another level. More importantly is the ease in communication with clients. Not just contractors but business men who understand every aspect of customer service. Outdoor Makeover & Construction does business the old school way, influenced by Omid and Navid’s father. In a desire to serve clients, the two brothers added real estate to the already long list of existing business ventures. As brothers often do, Omid and Navid have many differences but what they have in common matters much more: the determination to go above and beyond and the dedication to customer service and premium quality.


The Advantage of Using Us: Two Birds, One Stone

Landscape Designers, Outdoor Makeover and Construction of AtlantaAt Outdoor Makeover & Construction, we alleviate any homeowner stress from project initiation with a contractor. We have every incentive to spoil our clients. We want to earn your trust, because we earn your continued business. You benefit from synchronized project management and appreciate the complementary attributes each brother masters. Because we span a range of areas of expertise, we are able to avoid the use of subcontractors much of the time. Other landscape companies use subcontractors to build decks and deck companies use a subcontractor for the fire pit and the hardscape around the landscaping. At Outdoor Makeover & Construction, we build all of our own patios, screened porches and much more. Say the construction crew interferes with the landscape as part of the design plan; our landscape takes care of it with no stress. You don’t have to find a landscaper. You won’t have to call an irrigation guy if your new porch is about to be built on top of the irrigation valve. Our company handles almost every aspect without the use of a subcontractor.


Omid and Navid personally check the jobs themselves. “We proceed into a job with the design established through consultations. As the plan begins to unveil, we might see small opportunities for upgrades, we aren’t shy to make these improvements, often at no charge to the client. Maybe it’s just a matter of two or three extra hours in labor, but it may contribute tremendously to the project.” This is the philosophy of Outdoor Makeover & Construction.

  • “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.”

  • “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

  • “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.”

    Larry S. Atlanta, GA

  • “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.”

    Christy A. Sandy Springs, 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!”
