Quentin and crew transformed our unique and failing backyard landscape into a space we use and enjoy. We are very happy with both the result and the process, from start to finish.

We were in the market for a nice fire pit and planned on just doing a traditional wood burning fit pit. Outdoor Living Experts (OLE) happen to come with an excellent proposal for investing into a gas fire pit and did an excellent job explaining the added benefits of the investment. We chose to move forward based off their recommendations and are so happy we did! Our family and friends love visiting in the cooler months of the year to warm up by the clean burning fire pit, that we can light up without any hassle. Best regards - David L.

Working With OLÉ

What Does Working With OLÉ Look Like?

Phase 1: Getting to Know You - Consultation

Every transformative journey at Outdoor Living Experts begins with a personalized on-site consultation led by our experienced designers. In this initial phase, we take the time to understand your needs, preferences, and budget, ensuring we align our expertise with your vision. Our team conducts a thorough site survey, discussing your project goals to formulate a clear path forward and determine the precise type of proposal needed.

Phase 2: Unleashing Creativity - Design

Our creative process takes center stage as we delve into brainstorming and planning your outdoor space. If a formal plan is deemed unnecessary, we proceed to craft a detailed written proposal, transparently listing materials and labor to ensure you have a comprehensive understanding of our offerings.

Should a scaled drawing be required, we initiate the design phase, requesting a design fee retainer, which is refunded upon project completion. This phase involves an extensive site analysis, ensuring an accurate representation of your property, evaluating grade elevations, addressing irrigation, proposing drainage solutions, and creating a 3D conceptual blueprint alongside a video tour of the site. Our aim is to complete the design within 10–14 days from our initial consultation, setting the stage for the next phase of your outdoor transformation.

Phase 3: Vision to Reality - Finalization

Depending on the complexity of your project, we may meet again at your home or at our office to finalize details. This stage allows us to showcase product samples and make any necessary adjustments to your proposal, ensuring our visions are perfectly aligned. We strive to make this phase an exciting journey towards creating a space that will bring you joy and satisfaction for years to come, ensuring you feel confident in your decisions.

Phase 4: Transformation in Action - Breaking Ground

With your commitment confirmed by signing the proposal, we order your materials and provide an estimated timeline for completion. Please note that exact start dates may vary due to weather conditions. We pride ourselves on our dependability; your designated crew will remain focused on your project until its completion. Pre-construction meetings ensure a seamless, safe installation process, with your production manager serving as your daily point of contact and our construction superintendent overseeing quality assurance. We take great care to respect your property and that of your neighbors throughout the construction phase.

Phase 5: Empowerment and Assurance - Educate

As we bring our work to completion, we invite you to a final walkthrough to ensure the project meets your expectations. We are committed to educating you on the proper care and maintenance of your new outdoor space, and we proudly stand by our warranties for both landscaping and hardscaping. Our trees and shrubs come with a one-year guarantee from the date of installation, and most of our Techo-Bloc pavers and walls are protected by a limited lifetime warranty, with a two-year installation guarantee provided by Outdoor Living Experts.

We encourage you to reach out if you have any questions or notice signs of decline post-installation. Your long-term satisfaction and the success of your landscape are of utmost importance to us at Outdoor Living Experts.
