Designed and built a two tiered paver patio with natural stone steps, borders and beds. The beds were planted with trees, shrubs, and perennials. We worked with the Outdoor Design Build team which included a landscape architect, masons and landscapers. The experience was terrific. Outdoor Design Build guided us through the design process and helped us to make optimal material and plant selections. The team was was professional, fun and fast. The work was done with care, on time and on budget (no surprises!). We are very happy with the patios, the natural stone steps, trees, and shrubs and plan on future projects with David and his crew.
Added a covered outdoor living space to the house complete with a grill, fireplace, uncovered patio and backyard landscaping.
From start – which included a referral for a architect who designed the space and landscaping – to finish, Dave Underhill was all about the details and making sure we were happy, satisfied customers. He was responsive and in regular communication to ensure the project stayed on schedule and was coming together as planned. The project manager and workers assigned to our project were always on time, professional, personable and tidied up the worksite at the end of each day. When it was time to select stone, pavers and paint, they made helpful recommendations. The completed project included landscaping that transformed the backyard. At one point, a sink was installed where a cooler should had been. After bringing this to Dave’s attention, he noted the error and made the correction without hesitation. Now, THAT’s customer service!!
Removed our existing pavers/deck. Installed a new 850 square foot paver patio, with both a covered and uncovered portion. Covered portion included a 24×24 gabled roof structure with an integrated fireplace, with recessed lighting and ceiling fans. Are yard has a decent grade, they raised the patio to make it one level and installed a retraining wall. Additionally, ran a gas line for gas starter for fireplace as well as for the grill.
We would highly recommend Outdoor Design Build. David and Rick (foreman) did an excellent job throughout the entire process. This was a very big investment for us, and we interviewed a number of hardscape firms, as well as reached out to a number of their customers. One thing stood out….David’s customers all raved about him! Ultimately, David not only came in with a competitive price, but he made us feel comfortable from the start.
We did use the optional design consultant – Gayle. She came out a couple times to incorporate ideas/make changes to design, etc. [fee waived]. David communication was great throughout the project, and he and the crew we’re attentive to the smallest details. While we didn’t stray much from the design,there were a couple minor adjustments needed once we actually saw things progress. No issues/concerns – we talked with them, and adjustments were made.
David and his team are very professional, attentive, and wonderful to work with….there’s a good reason they have so many years in the business with such consistent, positive reviews. We ended up with exactly what we wanted and we couldn’t be more pleased…the transformation it made to our back yard is incredible.
Replaced our concrete driveway; added a concrete extension to our back patio; landscaped the front of our house; poured and capped a new concrete stoop for our front door area.
We were extremely happy with David and the services he provided. He was very thorough, and followed-up often throughout the process with phone calls, texts, and e-mails. Dave (David’s concrete foreman) did an excellent job in supervising the pouring of our new driveway and front stoop, often staying until dark to finish the work. The prices for this company’s products and services were reasonable and competitive, and the laborers were professional and courteous. They all did a great job in transforming the look of the front of our home!
600 square foot paver patio, seating wall and fire pit.
David was easy to work with from the beginning. He was prompt with his responses and very helpful with the product decision making process. The project ran smoothly for the three weeks it took to complete. David does not hire out his services but instead had very responsible and dependable staff who complete the process. Nick showed up daily and was easy to talk to and always communicated the next steps in the project. He was open to my input as well as responsive to changes made in the plan as time went on. We added and changed the plans as the project developed and never felt that this was an issue. At the end of the project we were completely pleased and have had several compliments from friends and families on what a warm inviting space we have created. I value dependability, responsibility, and professionalism and this team met all my expectations. After people see our patio the first thing they ask is who did this. I know we will pass his name on for years to come.
Custom paver patio with fire pit.
David and his Outdoor Design Build crew did a fantastic job. Starting with the bidding process, David suggested that we hire a landscape architect to give us a definitive design so the bids would be equitable. We hired Gayle Frazier to put our concepts on paper. That part of the process was fantastic. Gayle has a real passion for her work and it showed on the design she did. The design of the fire pit , seat walls & boulder retaining wall all looked great on paper. Almost like a work of art.
The job foreman (Nick) took Gayle’s design and executed it flawlessly. Nick was a real pleasure to work with. He welcomed my input during the construction process. The crew showed up when they were schedule and performed their job in a very professional manner. Nick made sure things were done right. Like putting in an underground drainage system to handle several downspouts and expanding a rock garden to handle storm runoff.
The paver patio is very large( over 700 sq. ft.) and looks great. Four different size pavers that give the patio a very nice pattern. Nick made sure the patio had the proper elevation so the fall from the house drained water away from the foundation. Outdoor Design Build was not the highest or lowest bid on this project. I awarded them the job because I was impressed with way David went about the process. We are very happy with our new beautiful outdoor living space! We have had a ton of compliments on the finished product. I would definitely use Outdoor Design Build again for other projects.
Outdoor firepit, slate paver patio and landscaping.
David Underhill installed an outdoor firepit, paver patio and landscaping along the back of our home. The landscaping included fairly large trees, medium size bushes, flowering plants, ground cover, tall grasses and large stepping stones. The project took just a few weeks with all remaining touch up items within a few weeks after that. He was very responsive to changes and addressing any issues that came up during the installation. The quality of the materials and plants used was excellent and I our contract includes replacement of any plants that don’t survive in the first year. We will likely use him again to do landscaping in front of our home.

Built an architecturally beautiful deck, paver patio, stone fireplace with seating wall and wood box, and landscaped some areas
My call was returned same day and Dave came out the next day to meet with us. He recommended a landscape architect to design the deck and patio. We loved the design and Dave’s professionalism. The paver patio was laid first and then a beautiful stone fireplace was built with a nice seating wall and a wood box; gorgeous! The crew was fantastic; easy to work with and always willing to answer any questions or concerns. They were true craftsmen, polite, and always cleaned up at the end of the day. They also paid great attention to detail. Our expectations were met and actually exceeded! I highly recommend this company! You can’t go wrong and you will be very pleased with the outcome.
Built an outdoor kitchen.
Dave Underhill and his team at Outdoor Design helped coordinate the design and then built an outdoor kitchen area on an existing patio area adjacent to my home. They took my concept that I had been dreaming about for several years and then helped me transform those ideas into an actual plan. His crew worked through the winter of 2014 and was diligent working through some very harsh elements. His crew was friendly to my family and I felt very comfortable with them working at my home while I was at the office. They paid extra attention to the all then small details and did not cut any corners. When needed we were in contact and they asked me to come and discuss onsite at each milestone of the project. They had the area completed by the beginning of spring and we jointly did a walk through to ensure everything was completed to my satisfaction. I would hire them again and wouldn’t have any problem recommending them to my friends and family.
Removed existing blacktop driveway and installed new, enlarged driveway with pavers/crushed stone. Also installed new walkway, laid sod & planted tree.
If every contractor was like Dave Underhill & his crew we wouldn’t need Angie’s List. The whole project ran smoothly from planning to installation. When we started thinking about replacing our driveway, we didn’t know exactly what we wanted. Dave had great ideas & really knows his business. Dave promptly answered any questions and addressed every concern we had. He was the only contractor we talked to who didn’t have to sub-out any part of the project. They started when they said they would & finished the job quickly and efficiently. They did a fantastic job & we are very happy. Our driveway looks great!!
