As a property owner, there are three measurements by which you should compare landscape contractors: cost, schedule, and product quality.

COST
: Because we understand that hard earned dollars go into your landscape, we work hard to give you the most value for your investment.

SCHEDULE: Second, we at Outdoor Finishes understand the importance of meeting your schedule.   

PRODUCT QUALITY: Outdoor Finishes completes one job at a time, allowing us to fulfill our goals; a completely satisfied customer, as well as completing your landscape with a finished, professional look.

These three measurements are what good business is all about. They’re the things that matter most to you, and they should be equally important to the landscape contractor you select.

We’re committed to meeting your needs. Against any professional landscape yardstick you wish to use, we’re confident you’ll find we measure up.

The Process

Our expert staff will guide you from start to beautiful finish!

A beautiful yard does not magically appear here are a few steps that we must take before our shovels touch the earth!

Consultation
The first step is the in-home consultation. An Outdoor Finishes sales representative will meet with you to assess your goals and needs, talk about the possibilities, and to become acquainted with the property. At this time we may ask for a copy of your property plot plan. Please be prepared to provide us with a plot if we feel one is required. A property plot plan is a scaled layout depicting your property’s boundary lines, location of the dwelling, along with any easements. Most homeowners usually receive a copy of their plot plan when they go to closing settlement. (consultation fees may apply)

Design
For Outdoor Finishes to provide you with an accurate cost to complete your project, and to ensure that we have addressed all your goals - we will complete a scaled, professional design. This allows us to accurately account for the required materials as well as to accurately determine labor production hours required to execute your project. Most landscape installation jobs completed by Outdoor Finishes are designed by a licensed landscape architect. Fees for professional landscape designs are based on the scope of the individual job.

Budget
There are endless possibilities of what can be done with your property. Possibilities however carry a price tag. It is crucial for us to have an idea of what you want to spend on your project – YOUR BUDGET. We understand that discussing budgets is often a touchy subject for consumers, but this will help us in more swiftly and accurately meet your needs.

 Example: A small back yard could entail a simple project that may cost $4,000.00 or the same yard could entail a comprehensive master plan with costs drastically exceeding $20,000.00.

Example: Buying and planning a beautiful, useful yard is similar to purchasing a home. If you have a budget to purchase a home for $400,000.00, the real estate agent will show you homes in that price range. A good agent will not take advantage of your time by showing you homes that are not within your budget.

The same theory applies to planning a landscape / hardscape project. So that we can ensure we’re within the the realm of possibility, we will need to have an idea of how much you are willing to invest in your project. If you are unsure of your budget, we can give you some approximate costs at the time of the initial consultation.

We have a minimum charge of $3,500.00. Most projects performed by Outdoor Finishes range in cost from $5,000.00 to $150,000.00.

Selection of Materials   
After the final design has been completed, and a price has been agreed on, the next step is to finalize the selection of colors and styles of any applicable materials that will be used in your project. This may involve visiting projects completed by Outdoor Finishes as well as visiting supplier showrooms.

Homeowner’s Association Approval
Some homeowner associations may have a long, lengthy process for obtaining their approval before the work may begin. Please familiarize yourself with your H.O.A. requirements for submitting an application for your landscape / hardscape project. To avoid a delay in starting your project - it may be helpful for you find out the dates of the next two H.O.A. meetings so that we can attempt to have a final design completed by one of those dates.     

Scheduling Your Project
We typically schedule projects in the order as they are awarded to us. Outdoor Finishes will schedule your start date (weather pending) after you have signed and returned our written proposal with the required deposit.

Payment Methods
We accept cash, check, Visa, and MasterCard.

Outdoor Finishes has partnered with a large finance company that can offer 180 days same as cash financing, as well as finance your project up to 48 months. Terms and conditions do apply.
