How we work

Initial Meeting

During the initial meeting, we'll discuss your Wish List or the features you'd love to see in your outdoor living space. Does your dream backyard space include a patio, pool, fire feature, or screen enclosure? This list drives our landscape designer's plan for your custom creation.

Site Analysis

We will take photographs, measurements, and elevations, allowing our team to analyze every aspect of your property completely. This step is critical to a successful design because your property has unique strengths and weaknesses. We analyze all these elements and your Wish List to create your dream retreat.

Design Phase

Let the magic happen! We will develop an unbelievable design that will transform your space from an ordinary backyard into a stunning outdoor living room! Our master landscape designer creates your design in a 3D graphic based on the elements from your Wish List, allowing us to fly you around the property, showcasing the captivating elements and how they look day and night.

Final Design Meeting

After your feedback, we'll make any design changes and meet again to finalize your design. We'll then present you with a conceptual budget based on selected materials and options. At this point, you own the complete design and now have a master plan, allowing you to install your project on your own timeline. However, design is not an exact science, so we offer turnkey construction to ensure your dream oasis becomes a reality.


The inspiration that creates a design cannot be totally transmitted on paper. Landscape design is not an exact science. It is an art. To capture this inspiration, there must be ongoing sensitivity to the budget, the details, and the design concept. Five Star Outdoor Designs' project administration assures attention to artistic detail, quality craftsmanship in landscape construction, and ensures the final expression of the landscape designer's original vision.
