The Outdoor Makeover team was great. We had our side yard and back yard regraded and drainage fixed and a lot of overgrowth and vines removed. We also had multiple types of fencing put in various places in our yard. Daulton and Oscar were with us every step- Oscar’s team took my near-daily adjustments in stride and problem solved with my husband and me when one fence didn’t look quite how we wanted it to. Daulton was available via phone immediately and always willing to work with me to find the exact match for what I wanted when I needed to adjust something. They gave me a proposed timeline of 2.5 weeks, but finished in 2. I am very satisfied with how our yard turned out.

Jonathan, Daulton and Oscar did a fantastic job on my property. It was a relatively small job but they made me feel it was a number one priority throughout the process - from initial consultation until final walkthrough I was in great hands. I especially appreciated the professionalism and responsiveness. Highly recommend!

Jonathan and Daulton did a fantastic job on a project that involved installing new stone stairs and altering the drainage plan at my home. They were extremely thorough in their proposal, as well as knowledgeable and professional. I obtained multiple quotes for this project and their price was competitive and fair. They kept me updated with daily progress. I highly recommend them.

We are blown away with our results from Outdoor Makeover & Living Spaces. We had a monster of a job. We needed fencing, major grading and landscaping, we needed to replace a 30 year old rotten deck, add and replace several retaining walls, remove trees, and add lighting. Originally met with our designer Jon who came to our house and had some incredible ideas for our space. He was extremely knowledgeable, listened to our wants and needs and created a design within our budget. (Something several other companies failed to deliver, with outlandish quotes for minimal work). After nailing the design with Jon, we worked with our Project Manager Daulton and Foreman Oscar who executed the design perfectly. They were thorough yet quick. Even adjusting to several last minute changes we made. They were all extremely professional and communicative. Right off the bat they created a group chat with all parties involved so everyone was on the same page with every step of the project. Updates were provided with detailed videos and photos. Anytime I messaged the group thread responses were extremely prompt. Again, I can’t thank Jon, Daulton, Oscar and team enough for their hard work. The results are unbelievable (pictures to come). I love that we were able to work with 1 company to accomplish all of our needs. I would highly recommend them. I can’t believe we were able to get our dream backyard in such a quick amount of time.

I had a vision of what my backyard could be, and I described it to Bruce. He went way beyond what my mind could imagine and designed the most beautiful backyard in this side of Cobb County! Neighbors and friends come over and brag about how beautiful the backyard is! It was great working with John, and watching the expert Yovani so great work. Bruce has a passion about beautification and I’m so happy to have found Outdoor Makeover! I highly recommend them!

Contracted a big project to build an outdoor kitchen and covered patio. Some things initially weren’t built quite right but they stood behind their work and made it right in pretty short order. Our project manager, Chuck, was a great communicator and very reasonable throughout the project. Geraldo did all the plumbing, electrical and carpentry and was an expert at his many crafts. He was also very helpful in mocking up certain aesthetics to help my wife visualize the final product. Finally, the sales rep, Jonathan, was very diligent in his communication and follow up as we ironed out details and scope of work.
