Resolutions for the New Year

Georgia summer landscape

Everyone makes resolutions for the new year. We can’t help it. There’s something about the start of a new year that makes us feel as if we’re starting on a clean slate. Most people make resolutions regarding their health or breaking a poor habit, but what about making resolutions regarding your home space? Resolutions could include whether you want to update your home or your outdoor living area, or simply practicing good landscape maintenance. Here are some tips to help you transition into the new year:

1) Make a plan: It’s important before making any decisions about a new landscape to have a plan first. Discuss all possible ideas with your family (or yourself) and place primary focus on what you want your new landscape to convey.
2) Find the right contractor: There are lots of contractors out in the world, but the key is to find the contracting company that sees your vision and respects it. It’s always a good idea to have a consultation meeting before you make any major decisions, this way you can ask the important questions about budget and a reasonable time frame to finish the project. Also, remember to ask about seeing the designers’ portfolio to see if you like their aesthetic.
3) Repeat after me: maintenance is key. Before you updated your outdoor living space, you need to research proper maintenance techniques. Consider what you want for your landscape and research how hard or easy those ideas will be to maintain once they’re installed. While you may think you want a Japanese water pond, are you willing to take the necessary steps to keep it clean and healthy?
4) Don’t go overboard: When it comes to your outdoor living space, remember that less is more. It may seem like a good idea to have a fire pit and a water fountain AND an outdoor kitchen, but in all honesty, you probably only need one of those things. Consider the size of your outdoor living space and work with it. Most contractors are skilled enough to assess the space and envision what works and what doesn’t.

  • “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!”

  • “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.”
