“We are very pleased with the new patio Outdoor Architects built in our backyard. The work was done in a timely manner. Their workers were respectful and always cleaned up at the end of each workday, and the end product is both beautiful and functional. We would highly recommend their work—A+.”
“The first meeting for the design and proposal was very professional and thorough. The workmanship was outstanding—would highly recommend them.”
“They did amazing work transforming our backyard and side yards. Their expertise and professionalism was evident in every stage, from the design to the execution of the plan and final product—A+.”
“Outdoor Architects designed and installed a new walkway and repaired our drooping front step. The finished work is beautiful.”
“Mark and his team designed and completed a backyard/deck/patio makeover. We enjoy entertaining and relaxing on our new deck and patio. Professional service delivered by nice people.”
“Mark clearly loves what he does. His knowledge combined with his experience provides realistic designs. While we have not yet executed the design, we were pleased with the overall experience with Mark.”
“The work was completed several years ago and is still functioning beautifully.”
“Our patio and deck look great.”
“The crew did an excellent job. We love what they created for us in our backyard and our young adult children questioned why we didn't do it while they still lived at home. We have a fantastic patio and fire pit, and our water feature makes it a complete package to enjoy year round. There was a small tree that did not survive from Spring to the next Spring and they replaced it when we asked them to. There are several types of plantings grouped around the woodland design, a few of which did not flourish as expected, but such is the way with plants. All in all we made a great choice in Outdoor Architects!”
“Exceptional in all areas: bidding, customer service, install and warranty.”
